  1. The Grove Museum in Ramsey? I am getting married this year and it is having a Victorian theme. Somewhere like that would be lovely for a small wedding.
  2. Well, Kindle replacement update if anyone is interested. My original Kindle broke on Tuesday night, I called customer service as I mentioned above that night. Got an email yesterday saying it had been dispatched and, to my amazement, one brand new Kindle arrived by post this morning. I was even more surprised that it was already registered with my Amazon details. I had got the original from Tesco and did that myself, but when I turned the new one on today, it was already done for me. I think I am going to go and give the 'Last good book you read' thread a going through now, definitely need some new books! And to delete about 20 Kindle versions of The Guardian that I haven't got round to reading.
  3. They do, they have both versions. I went for the 3G one as I travel across a few times a year. IIRC, the 3G one is £153 and the ordinary one is £111. I was very glad that I registered it at Amazon as as I mentioned above, replacement is on its way. That will serve me right for losing the bloody till receipt from Tesco!
  4. I feel slightly envious, but would couldn't possibly feel hard done to by their help. Fingers crossed it will be here for Saturday.
  5. I am just looking forwards to getting my replacement, I am having withdrawal symptoms already. I was quite surprised at how quickly it was dispatched. I called at 8.30pm last night and by 2.30pm today, the email had been sent saying that it was on its way. Looking on the net, it does seem to be a fairly common problem, but I am willing to give this one another go. I was pleasantly surprised that when I send the faulty one back, I will get the postage refunded. Definitely not complaining!
  6. I must admit, it is the first time I have had to contact their customer service. I think if I am going to buy electricals in the future, Amazon will be my first port of call.
  7. Not quite in the spirit of the thread here, but it is Kindle related. I got given a Kindle 3G as a gift a few months ago and I have to say, it is one of the best things I have ever had. Went to turn it on yesterday and the screen was buggered for want of a better word. Full of horizontal lines, unable to reboot it and definitely not able to read any of the books on there. Bearing in mind I bought it from Tesco, I gave Amazon's customer service a call. One thing I will say is thank god I registered it when I got it. To cut a long story short, they are sending me a brand new replacement one which should be here by Saturday. All I have to do is send the damaged one back within 30 days of receiving the replacement. Absolutely can't fault their customer service and am more than surprised with what they have done. I was expecting to have to send the broken one back and take it from there. Definite thumbs up for Amazon.
  8. I am looking to buy the following items if anyone has them for sale - A double headboard in cream, brown or black, A double bathroom cabinet, A light coloured coffee table (such as beech or ash). Cash waiting, and would appreciate pictures if possible. Please contact via PM or email at valexon@yahoo.co.uk
  9. Many thanks wrighty, was a pleasure doing business with you. Fridge now full, children very happy and (sorry to rub your nose in it), ice cubes made!
  10. Truthfully, I have only ready 32 of the ones on the list, but my Kindle is getting a hammering as we speak - has given me lots to get my teeth into!
  11. For me it would have to be Queens Of The Stone Age - The Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret, The Smiths - What She Said Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros - Home Good Charlotte - The River
  12. Absolutely what you said Merkin. I think that all social housing should be means tested. I live in a council (well, Commissioners as it is Ramsey) house and for the privilege of doing so (and I do see it as a privilege, not a right) I would be more than happy to submit quarterly bank statements or whatever.
  13. I am looking for a reasonably cheap (ok, will be honest, the cheaper the better) under worktop fridge. My trusty fridge freezer has packed in and I have a chest freezer so am just looking for something to tide me over as I will be moving soon. I genuinely don't mind if the outside is tatty, just as long as it keeps stuff cold and my children quiet. Cash waiting, please drop me a PM on here or call Fiona on 355269. Thank you.
