Well, I was dumb enough to park under it, knowing there might be more coming down. :oops: Never thought it would take my antenna out though!

Chilli! :lol:

why is paypal such a pain in the a**e all I want is a new dvd rack to take care of my anime over spill
I found one on ebay but it's a bit too much for one payment at once for me so I'm trying to link my credit card to my paypal account but for the life of me I can't figure out how to change the payment method to paypal for one transaction without deleting the original card so I'll either have to transfer the amount directly into paypal which should take 3-5 working days or withdraw the amount manually from my credit account and pay it into my main debit account and incur a small fine

It is because, a) anything that technology makes "easier" will complicate your life intensely b) That would be too easy c) there is a secret conspiracy to muck things up and keep you from achieving your wildest dreams.

true all I want is a home for my dvd's
I can make something similar I have made something similar in the past, the cost of materials
is only slightly cheaper than the cost of the rack but I have to factor in basic laziness on my part
so buying ready made is better for me

Are there any car boot sales near you Ghost? There's usually something useful to be found at those events. I'm making do with shoeboxes for my DVD overspill just now. Keeps 'em all neat and tidy :D

there are a few but I've got my heart set on the ebay one and the over spill isn't so bad to resort to shoe boxes yet besides I work in clothing retail so shoe boxes are easy to find
I had thought of buying two dvd storage boxes and disposing of the lids upending them and glueing them together but some of my box sets aren’t standard size so that threw that theory out of the window

I couldn't find one I liked
anyway too late I've brought it now using my debit account and transferred funds from my credit to my debit account to cover the amount and every thing should be settled within the next 3-5 working days
and the rack should arrive about the 5-7th hopefully

Glad you found a way to make it work. Sorry about the frustration with Paypal. It shouldn't be so hard.

it's easy for simple stuff but for anything more complicated that that it's awkward as hell

Decking AND a statue of a coy nymph......does any tiny, narrow garden of a terrace built in the 1890s for sawmill workers really need these?
I know it's all down to personal taste but ....... :roll:

I've seen worse when I was doing gardening......a whole garden filled with concrete donkeys pulling carts planted with pansies :?

Now what every garden does need is a zombie gnome
