We did a car boot sale yesterday & made slightly more than DH/DD spent today; something is very wrong

I made £63.15 which was great until I realised that DD's lesson in London cost 56.50

<sigh> I think we need to re-think

At least London lessons are only during the holidays. DD is expensive to keep

We did a car boot in Cheshire on Sunday and made £85! Both DS's were despatched to Grandma's house overnight as I knew they would end up petstering to buy tat of other stalls!

What lessons cost £56.50?

Ballroom & Latin in London (we live in Norfolk so train plus class for DD & DH)

Blimey! My dad charges £9 an hour, he's in lincs

Ballroom, modern sequence and old tyme

And he teaches first waltz for couples wanting to learn for first dance at their wedding!grin

My DH can do all that too, but this is a competitive class with a Judge/Examiner

The train fare is a fair whack too

She just got an audition for an academy, we are all gibbering about whether she gets through or not

Hop she does! Fingers crossed

Well it''s great if she does but she might have to give up other stuff so that would be sad

Plus it's loads of travelling

So we did:
"What will we do if she doesn't get in"
"What will we do if she does"
"What will we do"
