Anyone got a spare leftover man?

With Mr Special moving in we have loads of stuff that we are not going to need. Two toasters, two kettles, two TV’s etc so I decided to get onto freecycle and give away some of the things I couldn’t be bothered to sell.

Have you heard of freecycle? Basically it’s a fantastic website for people who want to give away their old items to people who will use them. This stops the items being thrown in the bin and ending up in the landfill.

I got a juicer from there where the woman used it once and then put it in her cupboard. I love using it.

Anything and everything is on freecycle it’s pretty addictive you could pop there if you lost your charger or if you had a gift that you didn’t like and wanted to get rid of it.

Its easy to use you put OFFERED for the things you have that you need collecting i.e blue sofa, WANTED for the things that you want i.e. a washing machine and TAKEN to let everyone know that what you have previously offered has already been taken

So I know on freecycle you can get anything even cars but you wouldn’t believe my surprise when I saw the below listing.

All I can say is wow things must be really getting bad out there….this person is using freecycle to pimp their daughter!

If you cant read it or see the image says

Sweat, Blood and a whole heap of tears!!

Last night was just like every other Tuesday night; I left work and headed off to play netball.
We had a really good team and I was looking forward to playing. I really enjoy netball. We play outdoors and I mentioned to one of the girls that I was so glad we were not playing in the wet.

Running a bit late we jogged to the match working up a sweat but we managed to get there on time and start the game.

Ten minutes into the game I was defending our goal (I play GK) the Goal Attack jumped up for a rebound. As she came down, intentionally or unintentionally- I will never know she smashed her elbow into my face.

I am told I fell forward on my knees for a second and then backwards onto my back.

All I remember is her coming down and that pain! One minute I was standing and the next I was lying on my back, I opened my eyes and the whole team were standing above me, someone was holding my hand I could hear them all panicking

“Where is the blood coming from, there is so much blood”

“her eye, look its her eye”

“no her nose”

“Angel can you hear me?”

“Shall we call an ambulance?”

“Where is the first aid kit?”

I was in immense pain I couldn’t see out of one eye I had gone ice cold and I touched my face and there was blood everywhere.

I don’t know what happened but when I saw the blood on my fingertips I started laughing! This shut everyone up quickly. It was bad I don’t know what I was laughing at.

I think this was when they decided I needed to go to hospital. I’m not quite sure what happened after this but I could hear them calling Mr Special and for some reason I kept laughing and demanding that the show must go on, I kept telling them to go and play. They obviously thought I had lost it!

As abruptly as the laughter started it ended and was replaced with lots and lots of tears, I was in so much pain it was unreal, my face had started to swell. Not sure what was more worrying for them, the laughing or the crying. I had a nosebleed and also the ridge of my nose to the left was bleeding as well.

When we got to hospital (in a cab not an ambulance – my request) I found it hard to remember things like my doctors name or my house number so I got seen quickly.

My hands were blue with cold and my blood pressure was so high that they decided I needed a bed and one of those hospital gowns which show your bum. Luckily by this time Mr Special had arrived and helped me get into it. We sent the team members home.

Let me tell you at times like that there is nothing you want more than your loved one by your side. As soon as he walked in I felt good. I love that man!

Anyway back to the story. There is so much waiting around in hospitals that by the time I had my x-ray to check for broken bones I was back to normal and apart from the mass swelling around my nose and not being able to see out of one eye I was ok.

So I’m at home, nothing is broken but I look like a boxer as the bridge of my nose is so swollen and there is a cut on it.

I can’t really see out of my left eye and without tablets I would be in a lot of pain. The Head Injury leaflet they gave me at hospital said no TV or Computers so I’ m going to go and chill.
I’m already bored though

What a night huh?

Something to check out.

Moving slightly off topic from my recent good news I wanted to tell you about this play I went to see last year and recommend it if you are London Based. It's called 'Do you know where your daughter is?' and its written by Angie Le Mar. In 2008 I reviewed it for Afridiziak and now it's back at the Albany Theatre in Deptford until the 7th November. I really enjoyed it when I went to see it and I felt that it had a great message.

More info.....

Following the huge sell out success at the Hackney Empire, Angie Le Mar’s hit play, ‘Do You Know Where Your Daughter Is? comes to the Albany Theatre. This is a fast-paced production witnessing the tensions in the relationship between a mother and a daughter coupled with the devastating consequences of peer pressure. Exploring the reality of what happens when communication goes out the window, followed by rules, morals and finally love - the play features a cast of teenage actors in a hard-hitting and topical drama.
