I spent a couple of days watching about half a dozen Guitars on eBay. Most of them were ending. One by One I watched the bids got to silly money.
But I wasnt bothered because this one has been my favourite all the time. But I didn’t think I had a chance, it’s a Hohner and they are quite popular models.
I put a bid on when it got dawn to 5 mins to draw out other parties. Yep it worked now it’s started to rise. I realised that its only down to the last few seconds that the crafty ones leap in and take it. I missed the one before by 4 seconds and that beat me by £1.01 how sad. So my strategy this time was to pre search prices so I could make a sensible bid . I decided what I was prepared to pay and I bid that amount. I watched the bids rise steadily in the last few mins.
It got down to the last 50 seconds and I am getting excited then I had the green arrow “you are the current high bid.” 10 seconds -9- 8-7-6-5 seconds left now I held my breath this is where it can go so wrong. Yes another bid in , but it didn’t beat mine , one second left it must be mine, it’s surely to late for more bids ? , 4-3-2-1. 0 …… All over.
Now I was confused it said this item has ended. They put up the winning price bid which was not mine. So oh dear was I not the winner?
I went back into the bidding pages . This item has ended. Panic . …..and only then did I see it. Right at the top it said you are the winner please pay now.
I thought is it really me because it didn’t show my bid price. Will I end up paying for someone else. But No worries when I click on pay it came up with my details.
So yes I am a happy bunny. It’s the last bidders price they show then they take that out from my bid . All a bit confusing.
When I won it I yelled ” YES ” and Mavis said YES what and looked across to my screen I said I’ve actually won it.
Oh, what did you want that for. What can I say. Boys and there Toys.
I told you about the hearing aid down the Toilet . Today another disaster.
I was getting stuff out the back box on the van. As I walked round the back I walked into a really thick clingy Cobweb. I was pulling it out of my hair and off my face. It was like elastic. Out the corner of my eye I saw this big brown striped spider running along my shoulder. Panic.
So what did I do. I dropped every thing, struggled to rip off my jumper.
What else came off. Yep you’ve guessed it. my glasses flew off but I was to busy looking for that spider in my hair? I just happened to stand on my glasses.
Now metaphorically speaking they too are down the pan ,I’ve broken them. I just can’t be trusted to do anything right.
