Selling stuff online.

We decided two months ago to sell some stuff online. The reason being we need to downsize and move to a smaller place. It was a difficult decision because we are hoarders.
We have decided to sell everything we have not used in the past 18 years.
We were not sure where to start but after selling a few items this is what I have learnt:
We received more responses when we advertised on Olx but it was not possible to find our location on their standard advert form and I had to type it in under description and choose a town close to ours.
Gumtree has a more detailed town listing but not many genuine buyers responded.
We met some of the buyers at our places of work and so far everyone was polite and friendly.
Many people say they are interested and for some or other reason you hear nothing else from them.

Here is a fun advert. Enjoy your day!

CAPE TOWN – Sulking over a bike bought for love, one Cape Town man would like to trade in his two wheeler and girlfriend for a little bit of cash and perhaps a side serving of revenge.

This is not Gumtree’s first time being involved in a revenge case due to thwarted love. A year ago, another man in Cape Town sought to sell his half of the bed after he found out that his wife was cheating on him. It must be something in the water.

- Video shows a British girl, 18, performing a sex act on 24 men in Magaluf
– Donning pink hotpants, she was cheered on as she went from man to man
– Footage was later posted online, sparking outrage among local politicians
– It has been claimed girl was influenced by cheap alcohol and party culture
– ‘She got fuelled with alcohol, someone’s suggested it, she’s smashed and thought it’s a good idea,’ says Geordie Shore’s Jay Gardener, who is in film.

– The girl had agreed to perform the sex act after being told by party organisers she would win a ‘holiday’.’Unfortunately the “holiday” turned out to be the name of a cocktail.’ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2680842/Everyone-wasted-shes-smashed-thought-good-idea-How-cheap-alcohol-goes-party-culture-led-shocking-video-British-girl-performing-sex-act-24-men-Magaluf.html

Ants and Winter blues.

NO MORE ANTS
After trying several ‘tactics and remedies’ to win the battle against the influx of ants, we have finally won. The simple and inexpensive solution is sprinkling Epsom salts along skirting boards and the ants simply stayed away.
We found that a borax and sugar solution did not work for all ants. Ant traps are extremely expensive and seemed to attract ants instead of deterring them, although they claim that it kills those in the nest because the contents is carried away by the ants.
LOAD SHEDDING

Just a thought about load shedding. Consumers are advised to switch off geysers, heaters etc. Is it not more logical to recommend turning off pool pumps, fridges & freezers?
Did you know the definition of Winter Blues is: Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) well I knew it wasn’t HAPPY.

I wish I had know this a week ago. My mom’s ankles look like this but because she was coughing I assumed she had flu.
heart failure
When she finally agreed to let me take her to the GP he sent her straight to hospital. Today she was joking and said she can’t wait to get home and have a proper meal.

Pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge’s bare bottom have been posted online by a German magazine, Bild.

German newspaper Bild features the shot on their website along with another picture of Kate in Canada in 2011 when her yellow Jenny Packham dress did exactly the same thing.

Both pictures were taken shortly after she disembarked from a helicopter, with the wind from the propellers causing her dress to blow up.

The photographs have sparked comments online about why Kate doesn’t wear weights in her hems like the Queen to avoid future wardrobe mishaps.

One Twitter user wrote: “Why doesn’t she weight her hems?”

Kate’s sister also in the news recently because of her bottom ….

A leading French royal expert has accused Pippa Middleton of creating a ‘false bottom’ when she was bridesmaid of honour at the Royal Wedding.”
