    Good afternoon Elite

    overload this morning trying to kickstart my mojo ain't working

    Late night last night watching a dose of paranormal stuff, which reminds me, my evening out on Thursday to An Evening of Clairvoyance went quite well. I'm hoping to go to the next event in May

    Sun shining now, so whatever you're doing, go easy, enjoy your day and never overspend

    Hugs to the Elite poorly and those low in spirit, you're in my thoughts today xx

    I feel for the eBay sellers who have auctions ending today. Items are going at very low prices
    So many people can't get on to the site.

    I've just been on livechat with eBay for the past 20 minutes. I received an email on Friday 14/04 offering £1 selling fees for 4 days. As usual I clicked the link in the email to activate the offer and proceeded to list quite a few items over that weekend.

    eBay has been down all morning so I didn't get a chance to check until an hour ago, 3 of my items have sold this weekend, 2 of them for over £30 each and one, DD2's handbag, sold for just under £100. When I checked my eBay account to see the fees to deduct from her sale, I noticed I'd been charged full price, not the promotional fee of £1 per item

    While on Livechat I had to send them a screen shot from my iPad of the promotional email via use.com (never used this before) after which he concurred that due to outdated information in my browser's data, their system didn't recognise that I had accepted the promotion. What the actual Anyway, as a gesture of goodwill he's adjusted my fees so I'm about £14 up

    He did say on ending the chat that in future I should visit the promotional section of my eBay account to check I have subscribed to the offer. This I suggest we all do in case it happens again.

    but in view of this i've accepted the 50% off fees offer that came on an email this morning when the outage was on and Ive screen shot it. I seem to be screen shotting everything these days as nothing can be trusted.

    also the dress I bought yesterday which was cancelled by the seller as it was already sold privately
    I've just noticed that the system is allowing me to leave feedback.I was just going to put something neutral and factual like
    'Sale cancelled by seller after payment, money refunded'
    But then none of the ratings items were relevant

    So i dont think I am going to put any feedback at all

    Afternoon all!

    Taking it easy-ish today after sharing a couple of bottles of fizz with a friend last night

    Still hoping to get out in the garden, so much needs doing, it's definitely a retired person's garden, which I am very definitely not

    Just a quick note to Emerald about the mortgage situation, I agree the mortgage board will be very helpful, in addition to all the earlier comments here, but I'd also say that it may be worth exploring loan options for the extra 20k, or comparing the cost of getting a whole new mortgage for the total amount, as I think 30k is often cited as the lowest mortgage amount that's likely to be available.

    Enterprise - I thought you'd appreciate the irony of the fact my marks wardrobe has now gone up 20%, I waited too long

    So now we're both playing the even longer waiting game!

    Forget to mention the One4all cards were taken without a problem in the M&S foodhall yesterday. They just ask you the value of the card before the transaction

    Had no problems at WHS, even used one with 1p on it. I'm rid of my all4ones now.
