I did a car boot yesterday & made very little money

Then it was the village fete & the church service/songs of praise & I got a touch of sun - for the first time in years - I really don't tan at all

My new buggies arrived this week & they are lovely so I am selling my old doubles (pics on profile) plus I might put then on Netmums (shh)

How is everyone else?

I think I made a loss on the last car boot sale I did. These days if I want to sell anything, I let my mum put it on ebay.

Sounds like the fete went well... good weather for it.

27.5 degrees C outside here... 25 in the shade. So I'm cooking curry!

On the childcare front... babysitting work is at an all time low. Only did one evening this past week. Have two booked for this week, so that's 100% improvement!

Having had car troubles recently (there was a thread about it) I now have a new car having now spent a lot of my savings. So I'm trying to get used to driving that - have yet to try a hill start... may try that later this afternoon. Trying to figure out how to keep the car clean, there are no pouches for the children to put things in which is possibly a good thing... though they do like having a book to read (or eat in the case of toddler).

AWNW - remortgaging? That's what I did

Poor you Nick - will you logo the new car?

We just went our for a meal - DD is in Sweden with my mum & dad - then she rang while we were out, & DH is grumpy because we missed her call

Nothing you can do about missing the call... not as though you can wait indoor all the time. Maybe redirect phone to mobile.

No plan to logo new car.

Thanks Katy - been on phone to bis link this am, going to see someone in a couple of weeks, someone else said about co-op might be worth a shot, I'm so impatient I like to get on with things, all this waiting for appointments / info is doing my head in.

No equity I'm afraid, havn't lived here long and house prices fallen so all a bit pants really, I think I must be mad grin

Went to see Walking with Dinosaurs at the 02 in London on Saturday - excellent show. My DD age 10 was really impressed.
