Every car that I buy that lasts more than 4 months..

But especially the Xsara Picasso that I bought 4 years ago and lasted 2 years...

I never pay more than £250 for a car....

This next month it will be going in for it's 1st service since I got it....

Earlier this summer I picked up a couple of great bargains.

Firstly, having a nose in a charity shop I found a fantastic check wool fabric Paul Smith 'Westbourne' suit for £15 :shock:
I don't think the guy who donated it could have worn it as it was mint, all the pockets were still sealed, bag of spare buttons etc in the inside left chest pocket etc. The jacket fitted perfectly, cost me another £18 to get the trousers lengthened slightly.
So a PS 'Westbourne suit for £33, when new you'd be looking at around £700-800 new.

The second, at a car boot sale when I got two pairs of Joseph Cheaney shoes for £20 :shock:
They were in fantastic condition, I reckon he'd only worn them a couple of times...............an absolute steal when new they are around £300 a pair new.

:moggy:

I received £500 from work for 30 years service and I was looking to put it towards a new watch, after shopping round I picked a Raymond Weil Tango chronograph priced at £1,095 in all the high st jewellers but I found it online with Bradley’s for £547, 50% cheaper.... ordered and arrived 2 days later..... delighted with it. All i need to do now is learn how to tell the time!! :lol:

Yes you can just picked up the lighthouse on the tip of Flamborough Head cliffs Swannie

The sky & sea was blue as you can see & it is so quiet at this time of years, just a few dogs & owners walking on the beach, the dogs were running like mad of course !

We feel lucky to live a beautiful neck of the woods :-D
