  2. I just got rid of a bicycle – for anyone else, excellent condition and rather expensive, but for me, weighed down with bad juju. I put it in our complex’s informal swap area with a ‘Free to a good home’ sign – gone within an hour! I bet someone thought it was Christmas So, a massive weight gone for me, and somebody can be all excited and get good use out of it
