I joined eBay some years ago. I have not bought much from it but have usually been pleased. I've won a few auctions and just missed out on some others, even using last minute bids etc. I've bought quite a bit of yarn, especially Patonyle sock yarn.
The second hand Steelcase office chair has been a good buy. As I sat on the old chair, I could follow distinct pathways where it was uncomfortable. This is great, although I am still tweaking some of the adjustments. No pain and great back support.
She came over this afternoon to help me collect a heavy parcel from the post office. She brought the book and told me I really didn't need more cookbooks. She is, of course, right. I opened it up and the book was obviously new, no marks or stains or indications of turning pages etc. However, you can see what I found when I opened the first page. I've erased both sets of names! DIL thought I should return it, but it's weeks since it arrived and does it really matter? I daresay the sentiments in the greeting on the page have not been fulfilled.
Sorry about the photo. Cover is hard cover, very shiny and the light was poor.
