Chums!

Over the past year and a bit, while we've been knocking down bits of the house and building new bits to replace it, we've sold off some pieces of furniture. Yesterday I put a welsh dresser up for auction on eBay. Within an hour I had messages asking if there was a buy-it-now price. No bids - just questions. I don't understand why they're asking. Do they not understand the concept of an auction, is it an attempt to subvert the process and "snap up a bargain" or just the internet equivalent of those people who go on house viewings as a weekend passtime but aren't actually moving?

I'm using Facebook. No, I won't apologise, it's valid - I'm downloading videos I can't find a torrent for.

Got a couple of things to Freegle tomorrow, no doubt for further comedy hijinks.

Chikara Lives! I am Chikara!

I am also BG. Although you'd never guess from the sports reports, but at the Trampoline, Tumbling, and DMT World Championships in Sofia, Britain came second in medal table, behind China but ahead of the US, Russia, Canada, and Japan. That's a fantastic result. Harry's friend Josh has just flown out to Bulgaria for the Age Group championships. He arrived just in time to see Kristof Willerton take the Senior Men's Gold, and will be training this week and competing Friday, and hopefully Saturday and Sunday. Everyone's trying to be cool, but it's a tense and exciting time all round.

Is that the time? Arse, I have to be up in six hours.

Pip, pip.
