    I've been to Hayes a few times (work-related). There's a nice TRU there. I found my Jango room alarm at that TRU.

    Ah!
    I know it well.
    I once queued outside at 5 a.m to get a 2 Furbies for my mate.
    His kids wanted them and they were only giving one to each person.
    It was a nightmare.
    There was pushing and shoving, swearing and yelling.
    It was madness.

    My brother was with me. He was 15 and I asked him to run and grab one.
    Some guy pushed him over, and I mean real hard. He skidded across the floor and everything!
    It was like furry nightmare!

    I live in Bromley, Kent. But Bromley is a London borough so that's why I consider London to be my local Chapter (more so considering how much house prices are in this area) ;)
    Plus Central London is 20 mins away for me. The centre of kent is probably over an hour away, although I have no idea where the centre of Kent actually is 8-}
