Smee it's okay - emergency sort of over - I could probably knit them myself before you even started ;)

Thank-you for the offer though - really appreciated - what I failed to mention was that as at Wednesday (yesterday) I had a bone scan because I've had trouble with pain in 'my good leg'

Anyone familiar with bone scans - they nuke you, then scan you - send you away to come back 3 hours later and scane you again.

The second scan showed BOTH ankles riddled with arthritis - the film was BLACK :( - not a good sign

But off-topic - because of problems with the 'bad' leg - I can;t wear restricting socks and I like soft things *a girly thing* and the socks I have been wearing (with the fold down top) seem to offer more protection to bumps and scrapes AND stop my bad leg hurting and now hopefully will  help with the constant pain

THANKS EVERYONE - YOU ARE LIFESAVERS

There are nine days to go on it, Westie - and a high starting bid. If I am to have even a chance of snaffling it, I will have to be patient and snipe - but it could go for higher than I can afford, even if I pounce at the last second.

Ah ... poor Countessa.

She will be spending the next nine days mulling over her maximum bid, doubting herself when a number is chosen, rethinking her logic and watching the intervening bids more nervously than a NASA scientist following the descent of the Martian rover....

"My" Georgian writing slope has 2 bids on it already (more than 6 days yet to go). The current bid is £310.00.

May the fingers of all current and all other potential bidders (save me) be rotted and unable to press the "Place bid" button. They can have their fingers back after I win this.

I suppose you might try putting up a web page with enough keywords to sit high on the searches for that type of item, then capture all the IP addresses, resolve to physical addresses and send out the knights to 'impede' bidding activity....

or perhaps a DOS attack on those IP addresses...

or how about we organise for the eBay servers to go down for a few days - immediately after you place your 'winning' bid...

Prayer might be a less prosecutable alternative, though.

...You might also want to offer a prayer that someone else interested in this item hasn't spotted this thread....

If they have deeper pockets, they might just up their maximum...!

Yes, indeedy ... by at least one more bid.  But the question is - what is the leading bidder's bid?

Well, if I were into bad bidding habits, I could bid an insanely high price, expose the top bid, and then retract.

I'm not a naughty bidder, so I won't do it.  :angel:
