Well after years of resisting I've finally bought something from ebay, actually 3 things so far.
It really is quite addictive and even if you don't win, those last few moments of an auction where you drive the price right up make loosing ok.
whoever won it isn't getting as much of a bargain as they thought they would and you've not lost any money.
Today is the final day of the holiday and so it's back to school tomorrow. This term it's time to finish the core units and set about the courseworks. This should be fun!
