I’ve never sold a car privately in my life except to friends and family and now I’ve sold two in one night! Not bad as I only put them on Autotrader at the weekend, have had a lot of phone calls but these were the first viewings! It felt quite sad to wave goodbye to the Toyota, and Zoe shed a few tears!
We took a deposit for the Mini which goes next week but it’s perhaps best to keep it on the driveway and not risk a prang on the school run! However, definite cause to celebrate, a big task ticked off and money in the bank to help fund our travels!
We also did a lot of clearance at home today, but the house still looks a tip and none of the boxes have made it into the loft yet! The kids came home and took everything out of boxes I’d lined up for garage storage and Ben retrieved books Martin had just thrown in the rubbish bin – a 15-year-old road atlas and a manual for an unrecognisable 1990 gadget and asked if he could go and sell them on the pavement outside! I hope he will sell strawberries at Saturday’s school fete with the same enthusiasm!
