When the sun is shining like it was yesterday I love to lay out on a garden chair with a good book for an hour or two.
I’ve been a mum for a while now though and I know that if I want any peace I need to sort the children out first.
So I had a cunning plan.
Early yesterday morning I whisked them off to our local car boot sale to see what treasure could be found.
Here is Frankie’s rather fabulous stash
The annuals were 50p.
Dennis cost £1 (brand new with tags)
1o0 Match Attax card for this season cost £2.
Total cost £4.50 ( hours of fun!)
Annalise’s haul was just as wonderful and even cheaper.
Sticky bat and ball cost 20p
Paperbacks 10p each
Little puppies (donation to RSPCA £2)
Inflatable ball £1
So for £8.10 my kids have hours and hours of lovely books to read and fun games to play (perfect toys for the beach too!) I got to sit in the sun (for a bit!)
Car boot sales really are a great way to treat your kids without busting your budget.
