Sure. I’ll give it to Andrew to pass on.

Hardback Dirk Gently would be wonderful (I bought LDTOTS as one of my first HB purchases ever) - can paypal postage.

Both of them? Send me your address and I’ll put them in the post. PayPal me the postage when they arrive.

Oh, just the first one - I have my original copy of the second still. (Unless you just want to get rid of them as a pair; I can always pass it on to someone here.) Will send address via FB.

I would be interested in the east London map, and the Planets CD - how much would postage be to east london?

I will try to remember to check for replies, but please feel free to respond to flash@gorge.org for a quicker response! Thanks.

That’s fine. kateaw will work out the postage and let you know tomorrow.

Postage, packing and paypal fees should come to about £3.50.

Thanks, what's your address for paypal?

I'm really interested in the Worst Case Scenario Parenting book, the Mr Men/ Little Miss books, and Harry Potter & the DHs part one... Can you tell I'm about to become an auntie?! How much would that be, if you don't mind me grabbing so much?

I’ll set aside The Worst Case Parenting book and the Harry Potter DH DVD for you. I’m afraid all of the Mr Men and Little Miss books have gone (I’ve been crossing out items on the list as they’re allocated).

kateaw will work out the postage tomorrow and let you know.

Postage, packing and paypal fees should come to about £3.50. I'm assuming you are UK.
