Just as Japan applied themselves to take advantage of South Africa's lower than usual standard of play in the Rugby World Cup yesterday, so have I been doing this weekend.
The Other Site was down for maintenance when I looked in yesterday morning, so, wanting a quiet start to the weekend, I made myself the first of several mugs of tea and applied myself to the eBay listings after catching up here.
I spent most of the day listing items on eBay, tweaking existing listings and relisting the sales which had fallen off the page in the last few days.
During the course of the day I sold SIX items. Four of them were newly listed and one was something I'd almost given up hope of selling.
At one point it seemed as if for every item I was listing, another would sell. My works post room staff are going to be busy tomorrow, that's for sure.
After a delicious roast dinner, the Other Site was up again so I spent some time there reading and commenting before finally going to bed and catching up with the news headlines before sleep.
Today, so far, I have been busy cleaning. Guess what, the Other Site is down again, so once again I am using it to my advantage. The bathroom has just had a severe seeing to, as I washed the walls, cleaned all the surfaces and the various fittings, hoovered the floor and generally had a good tidy up. I'll tie up the bin liner later and Mr C can take it out to the dustbin when he gets back from church.
The broom is now poised to make like a prop from Night on a Bare Mountain here in the lounge and I'm going to list a few more eBay items, finish my tea and then go and deal harshly with the bedroom. There is laundry all over that room, dirty and clean, and if I don't move it, I just know it will be providing des res for arachnids before long. We have already had two large ones up there this month, so who knows how many more there may be. I'll clean the room then spray the Spider Stop around to give them a gentle hint.
Meantime, back to the eBay, with half an eye on the rugby results.
