Well after having the old car on the drive for three weeks , and no one wanting it, all of a sudden, yesterday, four people wanted it. The lodgers friend reckoned it was worth £500, where he works at the vauxhall breakers. Someone put a note through the letter box,asking it it was for sale, and then offered £200. OH's brother in law rang up and wanted it for his daughter. While OH was showing someone, the man across the road came over, had a run around in it, and offered £450. Came up with the cash, so its gone (across the road). Its had three new tyres, a new alternator and exhaust this year, so it has to be worth that. It looks quite impressive now its had its first wash and polish for three years.
Also the Jeweller rang. With everything else that had been going on, I forgot my Birthday prezzie. Anyhow, it's been collected, but we are waiting for new years eve, get the funeral and christmas out of the way.... and then a fresh start. There will be more than one sparkler on New Years eve.
