    Another 7 parcels posted today :T I've got 2 unpaids which is annoying.

    I'm going to have to find some more stuff to list at this rate!

    I've got a £10 voucher on ebay which doesn't seem to have any minimum spend. I'm thinking I might look for something for little miss's birthday and pop it aside.

    :( Little jwil was sick again this morning. I was hoping to take them out today, but that's called that off. He's bouncing around again now, so hopefully it was a one-off.

    This week of has been a complete write-off, it seems such a waste of annual leave!

    Big progress made today jwil! 9 sales is brilliant news. Better dig out the next lot and get it on there (says the woman giving it one more week on gumtree - so don't think I'm judging - I'm just trying to be encouraging). I've also agreed to palm off my toys on my sister but she wants to give her a load of toys to me grrr.
    You'll be a minimalist after all this jwil. You'll be one of those people without so much as a picture on the side. Xxx

    Thank you :) No more sickness (touch wood) but he's still not right and laid up on the sofa today. :(

    Thank you :) I do need to find some more stuff now.
    It's a lovely gesture when people give you stuff, but sometimes I'm a bit :eek: about it as well.

    I'll never be a minimalist, but I'd love to have a few clear sides :rotfl:

    Thank you, it's nice to see stuff moving again, I was a bit worried my selling days were over!
