My kids setting up their own business. They know I need little metal hangers for the back of the wooden burnings I make, so (with the help of their Nan & Grandad) they sourced some cheap ones in bulk from the net. Last night they not only sold some to me, but also to my sister who needed some to finish off her stock for the wood stall today.

They've even got invoice papers pre printed on the computer so they can just write in the number of units sold and the amount owing, then when we paid, D wrote on them, 'Paid with thanks'. :lol:

D says this is the start of him becoming a millionnaire :lol: :lol:

Be wary if they try to sell any self-sealing stem bolts! :lol:

A lady next to us at the car boot sale. On sitting in her chair holding a cup of coffee, she went straight through the seat & got her bum stuck in the chair & coffee all over her leggings & lap. We roared with laughter, but did go to her aid, she wasn't hurt, just rather wet, we helped her out of the chair & supplied her with wet wipes. Shame no camera, it would have made a brilliant You've Been Framed clip. :lol: :lol:
Best wishes,
Tiff
