Sunday, February 1
In a bizarre rehash of the whole holiday/sun lounger/beachtowel situation. German people tend to come and bid really early for my stuff. But in a cunning reverse of the beachtowel scenario, bidding first on ebay is not usually the best thing to do. British bidders come in later and metaphorically throw the brightly coloured (but perfectly ironed) towel into the pool, by sniping in with a late higher bid!
Some would call it karma.
