You all I assume know the phrase be careful what you wish for, well I spotted something recently that I wanted to buy, but did not expect to get the chance, then the chance turns up, but I though though the starting price is quite low for what it it, it will be bound to go rocketing past that and way beyond my budget, which too be honest has been strained a bit recently.
Anyway I bid the starting bid about a week back, with a bit more on top but, though for me a lot for a single item, I expect it to go much higher than my highest bid.
To cut a long story short I "won" it for the opening bid, which is a good price, but I am just slightly thrown out as I did not expect to win it and the shock has not worn off yet. Her indoors will look at me a bit odd if she notices the hole in the joint bank account and/or my addition of yet another old hat. It does of course mean this months budget is all spent out!
