tick this box to suppress

Ladies and gentlemen, here's a tip.

Don't bid seriously on both a solid fuel rayburn AND a multifuel cooker on eBay simultaneously without telling your husband what you are doing, the week after he has arrived home jetlagged from Australia and discovered that he needs to restructure his office, go to Scotland immediately for a week AND collect an old carpet (for composting), a water butt and two marrows from Freecyclers before he goes.

Trust me on this.

Everything's fine though. Honest.

  1. "Honest"? If you say so.

    Assume you won both cookers and are now looking for land to extend the kitchen. ;)

  3. Oooh marrows, yum. I think I'll see if I can buy one tomorrow, I suddenly have a craving.
    I notice you posted this on the 5 Nov. Fireworks?

  5. Well I've encountered the five new shoe boxes hidden under the bed before, but not notification of two new stoves...

  9. Steg - well, to be 'honest', the second one is a multifuel stove to go in the lounge. It was right next door to his mum's house, pretty nearly, so it seemed *silly* not to bid on it.

    Ditdotdat - no fireworks. Damp squibs, mostly :).

    Boy - FIVE! FIVE! I salute her!

    Greavsie - As in 'issue forth and multiply' you mean? Hmm. That hasn't actually been said. Yet.

  11. Did you bid on that one in Truro that went for 1p?

    I wanted that SO BADLY but getting it back up to north east Scotland was more than I could bear thinking about
