Years ago when i was a kid (c now i just sound old) it used to snow
every year and we used to go sledging and as such you could buy those
plastic sledges everywhere even the local petrol station.We have had
little or no snow in the past 25 years so now they are like gold dust.
I have a little boy he is nearly three and i thought as he may or may
not see snow again in his childhood i would pick a sledge up, but i
couldnt find one anywhere. so i had a quick look on ebay just incase a
local seller had one.There were hundreds of plastic sledges for sale.I
know the retail price of a sledge is about £8/£10 so imagine my shock
when i watched them sell for £70/£80 FOR A PLASTIC
SLEDGE??????????????????????? has the world gone mad. Now correct me if
im wrong but wasnt the recession caused by greed and excess,so in what
world did those sellers and buyers think that paying £70/£80 on a bit
of plastic was ok.
I hate this world at times.
So do you know what? i made one.I went to B&Q got a bit of timber
and a bit of rope and i made one THE COST £8.29. And it goes like shit
of a shiney shovel and i also have that pride thing that dads have when
we make our children somthing.
Are my views old fashioned or have i taken something from this recession ?
