Mystery purchase.....

Will you play a game with me?

I bought something at the auction at work last week and I want you to try to guess what it is...........

Here are some clues:

  1. It is ugly
  2. It is white
  3. It is made of plastic and metal
  4. People often have them in their bedroom, their sitting room, their garage or their loft
  5. Ours is in our sitting room
  6. It is very heavy
  7. It cost the grand sum of £2.42 (but that is a real red herring)
  8. People often use it to hang clothes on - but that's not what it is for
  9. I'm going to try to hide mine under a quilt - there, it looks much better

So what is it?

Uh oh, it's not an exercise bike is it? I kind of half want one, half laugh at myself for wanting one.

I was going to say a trouser press but then I saw Ali's comment and think she is probably right... an exercise bike?

I was going to say one of those horrible dressing tables from the 60s or 70s but I'm with Ali on the exercise bike.

I will go with the above as I know you are missing running and a bike to ride inside is the next best thing I suppose.

I started off thinking it might be an oil filled radiator - but looking at the photo I think that Ali might be right!

As soon as you mentioned hanging clothes on it, I thought of exercise equipment, LOL! If so, you certainly got it at a reasonable price, and can enjoy trying out a new form of exercise instead of feeling guilty if you don't like to use it after all. But maybe you will!

Oh it must be an exercise bike...or maybe a cross trainer? Ebay by any chance? I hung clothes on mine for months before finally banishing it to the shed!
