    Hello

    Sounds like it has been a bit bumpy for you while I was lolling around in the sun. Here's to calmer times this week. Very best wishes,

    Paid off mortgage nine years early in 2013. Now picking and choosing our work to fit in with the rest of our lives!
    Still thrifty though, after all these years:D

    Evening US, given the distinct lack of OPs I'll probably find my diary languishing on page 50 :rotfl:

    23p TT OP made this evening.

    Long and tiring day but managed to fit a lot of laughter in :)

    I'm having a well deserved early iChat.

  • Hi Tilly, ladies, gents ;)

    Tilly, can I pose a question/dilemma here please as you get more visitors and I'm interested in views. So, assuming you say yes....;)

    I have an electrical item/gizmo. I bought it nearly 10 years ago and it's been used 6 - yes, that does say SIX - times probably in the first year I got it

    The thing is, I paid £1100 for it, yes, awful I know but that's the sort of thing I used to do when confronted with gadgetry:o

    Its a biometric PDA, matching foldable flat keyboard :smileyhea:smileyhea:smileyhea:happylove:happylove:happyhear and T0MT0M gps system

    There are a few for sale on ebay (never any bids) and they are not worth much now e.g. even the BIN for just the PDA bit don't get any bids

    The thing is, between all their boxes (all perfect and contents inside like the day they were made!) they are taking up a full black bin liner of space in my home and is clutter!

    I'm never going to use it again and I want rid of the whole lot, I don't think bay of E is a goer and the postage cost for all those boxes would be tremendous and I'm not keen on collection only even assuming it would get a bid. I also can't bring myself to throw it out into the rubbish

    Any suggestions please??? Is it as simple as giving to a charity shop which I am happy to do

    Regards
    ATT
    Hiya ATT, do you want people to PM you if perhaps someone may be interested for themselves?

    Always happy to have my diary helping people out :)


    Tilly x

    Crikey Tilly, your thread moves so fast had to rummage for this to reply, thank goodness for the good MSE search facility

    Yes, PM's would be fine. I'll hang onto them for another few days I think then off to charity they will go If I've not heard anything

    Regards

    Hi Tilly

    Just caught up.

    I am so sorry about your carp news. But I know how industrious you are and the Tilly's will get through it.

    On a lighter note - loving all the film and music references and the idea of strawberry and mint jam is really interesting.

    Chin up and take care of yourself. (((hugs)))

    Good morning,

    99p TT :T

    Vacation starting very soon :T

    Mr T still job hunting - keep him in your thoughts along with Froggy and Mr Greent (hopefully he has heard or will hear soon about the job Greent :)). It's a time consuming job but he is finding some interesting roles to apply for. I've given him a little challenge which is what he does to me if I'm struggling :o

    I'm definitely missing my big OPs but Mr T has said I can catch up as soon as he is gainfully employed :T
