Some people never clear out their cars
October 21, 2007

Offered Breadmaker BD22 (Haworth) This is a Prima Home Bakery which worked fine BUT the baking bowl section lost it’s non-stick quality and eventually got lost after sitting in the car for months (popped in there so I could check if it was the right one if I saw spares for sale. Of course I never got round to sorting it). I imagine you can source a new one from somewhere, or perhaps the main part of yours has gone kaput and you have that bit. Either way get in touch if it’s any use.

Lethal Japanese paper-folding prisoners
October 19, 2007

Wanted Origami instructions/materials I am doing some work in a prison chaplaincy with female prisoners and am planning on doing some origami with them. It is a great craft to do with them because it doesn’t require the use of banned items – scissors, glue etc.

I have a small booklet already but I wondered if anyone had any instructions for fairly simple origami projects that they might be able to offer me. Also, if anyone has some origami paper going spare it would be much appreciated.

Just refuse it

Can any one help? My poor budgie is being harrassed by my 9 week old

Will pick up….

I suppose it helps if you know the item requested is a budgie cage stand, but that would be far too sensible!

Size doesn’t matter anyway, so long as it’s got a decent picture…

Hi, Can anyone find a home for a tv (not flatscreen) that needs a
little tlc? I’m offering this on behalf of a family member so apologies
if info is limited! We couldn’t find a tape measure so we were debating
size, at least 20″, I thought bigger, it’s certainly big enough for a
lounge tv. Comes with remote & also has teletext, downside is picture
keeps going off & we have no technical expertise!

Snails 2.0 : Still need a home (but not just any home)
October 16, 2007

Free to good homes,baby Giant African Land Snails(BD20) Hi there,
I have some 1 month old Giant African Land Snails,that I need to
I’m afraid i won’t be re-homing them to under 16’s.These animals need
a lot of care and attention and each person that re-homes them will be
given a care sheet with the information needed to care for them properly.
They can reach upto 4-6 inches in size so adequate space will be
needed for them as they grow,and it is possible for them to live upto
6-8 years.

We are sure these are related to this lot

This is all going to end in tears… share and share alike (ish)
October 16, 2007

I have a fab camper and I am hoping to seek an honest, reliable, trustworthy person/people to share it with.

I request this as I am not getting the full use of it on my own and as its such an ace van it needs to be used a little more than what I am.

Ideally, I would like to share it with someone who may not want to use it so much over the school holidays… as I have kids and its good to be spontaneous, but of course it would need to be shared in a fair way.

The van itself is sleeps 2 adults and a child on the front. It has a stove, sink, fridge, storage and is a very reliable LDV long wheel base Convoy with a 2.5l diesel engine.

Email me if you may be interested, I am interested in your story-interest!

You’re interested in my what exactly?
What kind of camper design sleeps 2 adults and a child, on the front?
Would you share a camper with anyone who used the words ‘fab’ and ‘ace’?

Enough coathangers for everybody!

Offered bin liner of coat hangers

I was freecycled some coat hanger last week and got more thanm i was
expecting, so have a bin liner full if anyone wants them, may split in
half if at least 2 people want them, as far too many for one person
unless they got lots of clothes and no hangers at present. I do not
have transport but you can collect anytime.

OFFERED Click-clack double sofa bed without cushions/mattress. Nice
October 6, 2007

2metres long. In pale beechwood (?) Not the pull out type so if it is against the wall you need to pull it away from the wall to open but does not take up much more room when open (unlike the pullout ones) . Unfortunately I accidentally gave the futon mattress/cushions away, forgetting that it was associated with the bed which was being used with a conventional mattress. I also have misplaced the bolts and the click clack bits . Let me know if you are interested and I will find them.

Otherwise I will convert into a garden bench.

So, basically, this is now just some vaguely associated lengths of wood
