to feel slightly offended that someone who collected 2 boxes of assorted books from me via freecycle this morning...

...has now posted 1 box of assorted books on freecycle this evening, without an email acknowledgement?
(Or is it just a reflection of the fact that we struggle to get rid of any, and only give away the crap ones? )

Oh it does, wmmc, although we have an awful lot of spaces full of Stuff still to go - but apart from her 2 boxes of books, quite a bit has already gone to the tip/for recycling/to Oxfam and there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel
(I bought loads of those plastic lidded storage boxes recently and they are helping a lot with sorting/dividing/deciding what goes where)
I told today's lady I would have more books later and would she be interested and she said yes; hope she hasn't changed her mind!

Yes, zippi, that's exactly how I feel!
The 2 boxes that went were only half of what we sorted through. DH would put something in the discard pile and I would say nonono, you would really like this one, so it got fished out again.
Much of what actually went was out of date football yearbooks, or footballers' biographies, or county library withdrawn-from-circulations. (There was a copy of An Evil Cradling, but we had 2 of those.)
I need a life launderer I think.
