Default Do you ever forget what spares you ordered ?

As I think I want something from the likes of Cousins I add them to my basket and when its worth placing an order I do.

I received my order today of bits and bobs and I had ordered two crowns (40M16NS1) and buggered if I know why I ordered them

I once received a watch I had forgotten I ordered...

I either need to stop drinking after dinner, or only start drinking after dinner, I forget which...

Here is a tip with cousins. Before you type in the quantity, there is a empty box right next to it called JOB REF. Just type what you want in there and it get printed on the invoice. Problem solved.

Its the greatest feature on the site!

Always use the Job Ref!

That said, I was surprised to get mail from cousins, but then I remembered that I put in a last order before Brexit...

John,

Your 'hippocampus' has probably shrunk which affects memory, up your daily bioflavonoids blueberries, dark chocolate.

"
Dark Chocolate Improves Memory, Reduces Stress. Researchers say eating dark chocolate can change your brain wave frequency, providing benefits in memory improvement and stress reduction. "


"In the study, healthy people aged 65-77 who drank concentrated blueberry juice every day showed improvements in cognitive function, blood flow to the brain and activation of the brain while carrying out cognitive tests. There was also evidence suggesting improvement in working memory."

More then once. I sometimes put things in my basket when i am out searching for the part. But maybe then don't need them as i find the parts somewhere else or don't have to replace it When i do the order i forget to remove them. Often it's things like crystals and gaskets.

I regularly get utterly surprised when drunken ebay purchases turn up at my door. Normally a pleasant surprise, like the gold commodore LED watch that I didnt even remember looking at let alone buying ! Beautiful watch though.
