I have literally just been on pins.
I found a third sewing machine that I don't remember ever getting. I am fairly confident that this was given to me as a guilt free way of getting rid of a sewing machine even though everyone knows that I am scared of sewing machines and I was fourteen the last time I successfully used one. It was massively heavy. I started staggering downstairs with it and I was really worried I wouldn't make it. It was the sort of heavy that gives you a headache lifting it.
I was thinking about freecycle as suggested by Witch Hazel. I couldn't in all conscience advertise it as more than an extremely heavy probably rusty relic, then one of the thingies at the bottom that kept the case closed gave way. Looking back I wasn't surprised. However it crashed down the stairs and exploded. Not only was the extremely heavy machine in the case but also a box of pins that scattered all over the landing carpet right outside the bathroom. It took a while picking them up.
So I think I will spend a bit of time recovering now and the machine bits can go to the tip - in the right box of course.
