EBay Angst

I have just this week put my first item to sell on Ebay. And managed to sell it. Not without it's stresses though! I got a personal message making a private bid which was fine but in order to access payment they asked me to put on a "buy now" which I did but in the seconds between me doing so and informing them someone else swiped in and bought it. A tough day's work in the world of shifting your junk by selling it to someone else. The tip was a lot easier and three carloads this holiday leaving a much less junk filled house. And still one room to tackle!

Cheap Calculators

I've just remembered why it's a really bad idea to buy cheap calculators. Very basic reason. Unless you hit the keys with considerable force they don't work. For an erratic button presser this is extremely problematic. I'm keeping it though for now. And embarking on a course in "hitting keys with force"...

Iconic. Passionate. Timeless. Breathless.

Didn't get tickets for the U2 tour because I blinked, breathed and they were gone before I had time to think about it. Watching their Paris concert is, I'm sure, second best but still pretty good.
