    Uh oh....
    Oh no, that's not funny. Hope you can find a copy!

    It's a sci-fi book called The Warriors Apprentice. That'll teach me for leaving my bag on the floor when I go out won't it...

    A huge majority of everything we have and own come from eBay, Crazy Sales, OzTion for mobile credit now that it is illegal on eBay...the list goes on.
    Yep with you on the Paypal thing. I literally spend 1000's of $$$$ every week on jewellery, and pay for everything via Paypal given the insurance that comes with Paypal transactions. After saying that, I have only ever had one parcel go missing in transport (touch wood)

    I've been buying and selling on Ebay since 1999, when it was only based in the US.
    Much easier since Ebay Australia was started..
    I also use PayPal for anything I can't pick up myself.

    My rules are, Only buy from sellers that have more than 10 feedbacks and a percentage not less than 100% if feedback is less than 30 OR a percentage not less than 98% for more than 30 feedbacks.. OR a percentage not less than 95% if I can pay cash on local pickup...

    We also buy online from TVSN (Foxtel) and I have scored a lot of bargains from Catch Of The Day who also accept PayPal.

    Here is the pic of 6 of them. The others are blue.
    I am sure I still have some beads for Pandora in my old stock Anne, let me know if you ever want any more and I will see what I have left that might suit you!

    Yes.... little bugger. He has "help" though from a certain fluffball. Was so frustrating when I got home and found the mess (he'd / they'd destroyed 2 books but I've been able to replace one, luckily). That was the second time they attacked books. They had never ever gone near my books until we moved house - then I came home one day to find they'd gotten into the book shelf. They chewed the spines of a couple of books and then pulled one book out and almost completely destroyed it. I was distraught - it was a beautiful little story book given to me when I was 6 years old by my grandmother 6 months before she died.
