Ebay sales and emails
Back to work today after a busy day off yesterday.
50-odd emails, 12 ebay sales, some formatting and some serious nigglement at people Just Being People marked my day.
I trundled myself and my trusty crate up the road with the eBay parcels, milk and teabags for the 07:15 bus, only to find an ex-colleague sitting right next to my chosen seat and her best friend getting on two stops after me. The two proceeded to wreck my attempts to craft an article and wake my brain up by talking - constantly - throughout the journey. Not that I didn't already know my ex-coworker could almost out-talk me, mind!
The morning was taken up with dealing with emails, answering questions about my break and eating cookies.
The afternoon passed in a haze of formatting, uploading documents and eating chocolate eggs that I had bought back from Germany.
The article progressed smoothly on the return journey home, except for the fact that when the bus arrived at the village, one of the local 'Ruperts' climbed on and proceeded to regale not only his mate at the other end of his cellphone, but also by the volume of his voice, the entire bus, about his forthcoming trip to Tanzania on a charity volunteering trip. Smug didn't describe it, really, and I was grateful to exit the bus and leave him to it.
This evening the article is progressing well, and I have listed two new eBay items. One of which sold the instant I listed it as a Buy It Now deal rather than an auction. Then I had a tweet from one of my contacts to tell me she had just bought it. I always share my recent listings on Twitter, and she saw this one and jumped on it.
I've said many times that Twitter simply works for me, and this is an example of that. I'm sure many people will say that, for them, Facebook is the magic bullet which makes things happen, but for me, Twitter is the best.
Once I've printed the two labels for the items sold in the last 24 hours, I'm off to bed, because I was late to bed last night and need the extra sleep tonight.
