Camera For Sale

Hi all,

I need to raise some funds. I have two cameras but use one way more than the other, so I have decided to part way with the least-used (and more expensive) one.

I am selling a Canon EOS 1000D.

*It comes in its original box with a Canon 18-55mm Lens and all its original accessories (leads, charger etc). I will provide a 4GB memory card and it also comes with a carry case that you can fit the camera in, a couple of lens, and anything else you need!*

I received it as a gift at christmas so it is only about 7/8 months old and is in absolutely fantastic condition, it still looks new! I have even got all the little packaging bags from when I first opened it, it’s been well looked after! I have only properly used it about 6 or 7 times, I just don’t have enough time to use it and it really should be going to a good home where it will be more appreciated :)

If anyone needs more information on the camera, here is the specification on the Canon website –

I am looking for about £400 ONO for it, all in all it was about £550 brand new.

If anyone is interested or would like more information, please leave me a comment or email me at

Finding A PenPal

Hey everyone, did you all have a good weekend? Mine was sufficiently boring, I spent most of it in my PJs watching tv re-runs and DVDs. I'm not complaining because I do enjoy lazy days off, but I kinda miss the days of having a manic social life....I guess i'm just getting old now haha (25! I know, not old at all yet)

I have been itching to write letters lately and haven't got anyone to write to, anyone that lives away from me I keep in good contact with via phone/text/Facebook. So I have decided to look up that wonderful thing we all did when we were at school - getting a penpal. It used to be so easy, you wrote a letter talking about yourself and it got sent off to some other random child in the world and they wrote back. There are a few websites knocking about which are supposed to be for finding penpals, but to be honest they seem to be more like a cross between social networking sites like Facebook and online dating sites! Within an hour of registering I had received messages off middle-aged men who really should have known better, and men in their 20's telling me I was beautiful in very bad broken English.
So does anyone know of anywhere I can register for an ACTUAL penpal? I want to write to someone similar to my age, and definitely in another country. Now I am old enough to know about the world I want to find some more out about it, so someone from a different country and culture would be fantastic.

While i'm here too, let me remind all you lovely people of the SALE I have going on in my shop Purple Shmurple. No one has took advantage of these wonder offers yet... :(
