There's an xkcd cartoon that my husband likes to wave around at times like this. It's so painful - especially when there are so many beautiful bookmarks in the world failing to realise their potential!

And that's so sad about the typewriter :cry:

Hope your auction goes really well, Pooh!

After sitting and thinking about it, I don't think I ever paid for it either, so I still owe Terry £60. Hmmmmm.

I do hope the boyfriend was suitably dumped soon after?
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

If I'd a'had my way he would have been dumped in an alley --- battered, broken and bleeding quite profusely, but I was told "NO! You're too old to be doing that sort of stuff.". I did point out, to no avail, that my bat was quite new!!

That is horrible. Such a thing should be preserved in a museum for centuries to come.
