Stanley 195611 Fatmax Backpack

I wrote, in a previous post, of my intention to buy a backpack for storing my most-used hand tools. Well, days after writing that, I went out an bought the Stanley 195611 Fatmax backpack from my local Bunnings Warehouse. I’m sorry it’s taken me this long to get around to writing about it.

For those who don’t know: Wesfarmers the Australian company who own Bunnings, purchased Homebase in the UK, well over a year ago now. They’ve already ‘rebranded’ ten former Homebase stores around the UK, including my local one, at Worle in North Somerset.

New Safety Boots

Since then, my shortlist has grown to the point at which I’ve found it more difficult to select any two from such a large crop and I’ve instead allowed the discs to fall through my door almost organically.

District 9 and Fury

Has it really been a month to the day since I last wrote about a set of DVDs I’d been watching?!

You’d think I might have a lot of catching up to do… When in fact, I haven’t had an awful lot of time or energy to commit to keeping up with what’s been falling through my door (yes, sitting down requires a degree of effort).
