Freecycle...

default Freecycle...

Well I have just been on freecycle & won my second item...

An old 4 man tent... (stop laughing pol, you know how much Lady S wants a holiday!!!)

Now I didn't want it for tenting I actually wanted it to use the poles as framework around the raised bed for netting, beans, etc etc... So I fired off a nice polite email asking if it was still available & if I could send "the young squire" around with the wheelbarrow to pick it up as I will be working...

I had a nice reply:

Yes Dean its yours we can keep it until you come & see your in laws, give us a bell... Shocked

It is actually a distant cousin that lives on the same park as them... :biglaugh:

If it`s for a holiday I could see Lady S demanding seperate holidays.

I am sure Lesley will be most obliging, but the thought of sending the Young Squire that far with a wheelbarrow, I think he would end up floating. :pirat:

PS Just think who probably slept in it !!!!
