Argh eBay

I have discovered eBay. This is a mild disaster as I have spent over £100 in a week. However, this is on 9 lots so I suppose at just over a tenner on average (and some of them were job lots) that's no so bad. It started because you cannot get the Jungle Book on DVD in the UK. Well, you can, but it would be a second hand copy from the year 2000 for £50 from Amazon. I think not. So, I have bought a 'quality Asian import' from eBay. There are only two spelling mistakes on the back cover, and the grammar is pretty good, so I suppose it could be OK. This is towards Dad's Xmas present so we will have to wait a couple of months before we see how it plays!

The other lots are mainly stamping and card making supplies. I am going to make my Xmas cards this year. (Yeah right - when exactly??) I made a Thank You and a Get Well Soon card last week, and was quite pleased with them, so we will see how it goes. But it's ridiculous the amount you can spend on this stuff. You can get a sheet of paper (yes, one sheet) with a pattern on it for 50p +P&P. And this is just for background!!! Good grief. I think I am in the wrong job.
