I just won a 40gb Ipod for £16.00 in one of the Guardian charity Christmas auctions! I don’t know why, but I was convinced I had won from the moment I sent off my five little bids on 27 December and I’ve been checking my gmail every day ever since.

If you fancy a shot at an Ipod whilst also giving money to charity (including tsunami fund) then click here!

I think 2005 is going to be a good year after all.


  1. Fantastic!! Well done. There’s a new New Order album on its way in February for you to download onto it.

  2. Well done Petite! I was also going to say that I didn’t know you could get Ipods for 40 quid, then someone pointed out you had said not GBP, but GB, meaning ‘Gigabytes’. Now if someone could just explain to me what ‘Gigabytes’ are when they are at home, I will be right up with you.

  3. Damn. You got me bidding. I need a new ceiling for my office, not an ipod!

    I am i-podded up and in love with mine (he’s called Stan), but mine’s only a 20GB one.

    Good for you Petite and I wish you as much ipod love as I have!

  5. As you Brits say: Well Done!

    Congratulations to you and the worthy cause you gave the money to.

  9. I suppose now all I need is to think of a name for him/her and find a nice knitting blogger to make it a spangly ipod sock….

  10. Congrats! I hope your iPod brings music into your life as mine has.

    I love your blog, I’ve been reading it for a few months now via Zoe. Your subjects are well thought out, well researched and from the heart. Thanks!

  11. merci merci merci MERCI!!!! :smile:
    You just made my day! My inner English self was urging me to give to charity, but the French self was not inclined to. Your post gave my english side the advantage. I went, I bidded, I won!
    thank you ever so much!
