Nah I've just cancelled it as I've found another site that sells them, although £10 more expensive

Dunno if I should order this one instead as it looks a bit better?

They both have worked leather BB 8)

There's a third one in this range too which I like the most but this is the only half decent pic I can find of it (even the guy on the phone said this one is his fav of the 3 too)

Bloody hell, Royal mail have a rocket up their arse these days don't they. Inverness to Birmingham over night? I'm well impressed.

Well here's the pics of my targe as promised. It's slightly smaller than I imagined but it fits my arm perfectly and isn't too heavy either

Deadly :|

Comfy

Overall I'm well impressed but God only knows where I'm gonna hang it 8)
