... when my beloved bed finally gets auctioned on eBay (if you're wondering what I'm talking about, read down the page a bit). Here it is again:
I put a low starting price on it - $20. Yes, nuts, I know. But I seriously had no idea if there'd be any interest in it, after all, it does need some repair. I needn't have worried. By the end of the first day six people were watching it; now there are 25 and the price is already up to $76, so I think perhaps I underestimated its appeal.
Now comes the hard bit - saying bye to a trusty old companion that's been in my life for some time. Sob.
Update: auction just over - the bed sold for $133.50.
