    Welcome sunshinegirl66! Patman will be along soon to assign you a number I'm sure!

    Dolly & Calling...ON YOUR MARKS...GET SET...GOOOOOOOO lol :p

    I'm currently having a money dilemma over whether the £20ish I've made so far on ebay should go on paying extra to my CC, being put towards Christmas presents, or shoved into my emergency fund! Will just leave it in Paypal until I figure it out :rotfl:

    Dolly I agree, everyone on the DFW boards has been lovely and helpful. xx

    Yay! Off to a great start Calling! Bet you will soon overtake me :D

    I did think that, but £6.66 to each pot doesn't seem worth it! I've got another 4 items I listed at the weekend, ending this week, so I will see what that takes the total up to then try and decide. By the time I make my mind up, I will probably have the £1000 in Paypal... :rotfl:

    Whoop! Well done you :D

    I still haven't put anything more into mine, just limping to payday. Will see what's left come payday, and hopefully if there is something left I can put some more into mine.
