stuff up for grabs

I’ve been hauled up in bed this afternoon, my back has finally set me straight… rest damn you! I hate resting. Actually allow me to rephrase that, I despise being idle. And laying on my back for half a day is just a plain waste of time, but after weeks of serious pain I’ve finally decided to let my body tell me what it needs. Chronic back pain is physically exhausting too, and most days I’m tired in the afternoon, maybe that’s why the siesta was invented, for people with shagged backs!!

So laying here in bed I decided to be some what practical and posted a whole heap of stuff on eBay. A few months ago we had a market stall and sold a lot of stuff we figured we no longer needed, as part of our philosophy of living with less stuff. But this is stuff that I once needed, or things I have two of. When I sell stuff on eBay I can’t help myself and have a little fun with the descriptions. People on eBay are so serious so I like to add a little pepper to their day. Talking of pepper… check out the neat Parkers Nuts S&P shakers for sale. It’s hard parting with some stuff, like my very first camera and old loved knives and camping gear. But someone else surely can get more use out of them rather than them sitting on a shelf at my place.

    Isn’t it funny how you can have fun with the English language.

    When I saw the title of this blog, instead of reading it as Stuff “up for grabs” my twisted brain saw “Stuff-up” for grabs! Now why would anybody want to give away….

    All the best with the sale Rohan.

    I still cannot let go my first camera. Have not used it for years, but simply cannot give it away.
    Good on you that you can!
    Hope it gets into good hands :)

  • Scott

    Had me crapping there for a bit! not the Tilley!

  • Declan

    You got any gun racks for sale?

  • Dan

    Try the planking exercise for your back. It changed my life! Nothing new, and as simple as it gets. 2 minutes a day and I feel like a teenager again!

    Rohan, first of all – my husband and I admire your lifestyle so much. We’ve both become more interested in the home grown/local food movement in the past couple of years. You are an amazing example! We look forward to reading your blog every week!

    Have you ever gone to see a physiotherapist, Rohan? I’m a physical therapy (physiotherapy) student in the U.S. and as far as chronic low back pain goes, a physiotherapist may be much better suited to treat your back pain if you haven’t seen many results with a chiropractor. They can definitely help people but if you’ve been going for a long time and have become dependent on your appointments, physiotherapy might be a great option to try out! We help you help yourself. In the end you have fewer appointments to go to and less money spent on back care :)

    Ooh that’s a lovely little jug…
    (Just checked ebay… the jug is popular, already past $15… hmm)

    As long as you promise not to actually waste the money on a chiropractor, and instead go to a physical therapist, then I’ll get to bidding.

    Love the green pouring jug. Too bad it would cost a small fortune to ship it to the States. Damn. I love it.
