Apple iPad Air 2 sneak peek!


Hello! I hope this finds you all as well as can expected. I took a few more days break from The Q last week – what?!? More time off Silver Fox! Yes – you see annual leave at The Q is like a muscle in your body ‘Use it or lose it!’

The Boss allows us to carry a few days over into the new leave year, but there’s still always a bit of a last minute rush to take any outstanding days. It’s a simple matter of time management, something I’m aware doesn’t come naturally to me, (‘cos there’s always tomorrow!)

I know I’m not alone in this regard but fortunately for me I married the most organised person on earth and she keeps me on time and more importantly in the right place at that time ! Most of the time !

Talking of Mrs F, she enjoyed a relaxing Mother’s Day on Sunday – I hope all Mum’s reading enjoyed their day too (and of course those not reading as well!) We’ve had a pretty busy couple of weeks so Tracey wanted to keep it simple and go for a long walk with the dogs – but the rain wanted to celebrate with us too and so Toby, Ellie and I walked in the rain alone – aaaah!

We popped out later for a very enjoyable meal at a well known Pizza Restaurant – you should have seen their faces when Ellie and Toby walked in! Somebody once wrote that putting an exclamation mark after a supposedly funny comment was tantamount to laughing at your own jokes !!

Ellie continues to grow and is very close to her full height now and is quicker than Toby in a sprint – I’ve enclosed a fun video of a little game I play with them when I let them loose – continue to watch for the epic fail!
Never work with animals!!

Apple iPad Air 2 is coming to Q! 

At Christmas I treated myself to a new Apple iPad, I decided to go for the new iPad Air 2 the latest, super slim, yet powerful tablet computer from Apple, in fact I’m typing these very words on it. The iPad Air 2 is in a word ‘incredible’ I cannot speak highly enough about it and I’m thrilled to tell you that it’s appearing at The Q as our Today’s Special Value for this Sunday (22nd March).

Our buyers have put together a very special bundle, which includes “Belkin” case, Screen protector, in-car charger, an online Magazine Voucher from Zinio, an 8 App -Suite voucher and access to a 90-day Gadget Helpline and there will be 4 x Easy pays on offer.


The iPad Air 2 has way too many noteworthy features to do it justice here but some headlines are Fingerprint ‘Touch ID’,  amazing re-designed Retina display, super fast A8x processor and superb Front ‘FaceTime HD’ and Rear ‘iSight’ cameras. The rear features 120fps Slow motion, time lapse as well as a Burst, Self timer and Panorama modes which allow you to take breathtaking still shots and stunning HD Video. All in the most incredibly stunning 6.1mm thin Aluminium Unibody weighing only 437 grams! If you are thinking of upgrading or buying your first tablet – I would invite you to join myself and our brilliant Technology guest, Lee Hohbein at midnight Saturday (21st).

Until next time, please stay warm, dry and well!
