Car boot sale

I have a baby bath on wheels! Yay!
After hearing from a couple of people how busy the car boot sale at the Tallaght Stadium is, hubby and I decided to give it a go last Saturday.
I had put together a few things which we no longer need and also took some Avon stock with me.
We arrived there before 8 o’clock and there were already people roaming around in search for bargains. They came straight to our car after we parked it, curious to know what we had to offer.
I hardly got the chance to unpack. It was really a bit crazy and funny.
Later on it was less busy. It lasted until 1 pm which was a quite a long time and I must admit that it is quite busy and even though we didn’t sell a lot, it was much more than I ever did. We must’ve sold about 65 euro.
I also got a few representative leads, which is why I started doing markets at the first place.
We sold more AVON than our own stuff.
Especially the perfumes and the fragranced deodorant rollers went quite well and then some other things like watches, hand creams and a manicure set.
There were people with crazy offers which I couldn’t agree with. There’s no way I would sell AVON stuff below the price that I purchase them but I did make a few deals with customers just as long as I didn’t really lose money on it.
There was one Bench watch though I had for some time and that one I really went below the price I bought it but that was because I just wanted it to go since no one was using it.
I was really excited to go to the Car boot Sale at the Tallaght Stadium, also because I hoped I would find lots of things that I have on my wish list.
We ended up getting a few toys for the kids. And I got a blouse for 50 cents. I asked hubby to check out the price for a castle I saw and he came back with the castle and a whole pony collection .So the kids have nothing to complain. (Ixora is currently playing with the pony’s)
I found a lovely skirt for Ixora and a set of Disney books. The skirt for 1,50 and the books 6 for 1 euro.
And then my biggest bargain and an item of my wish list : a bath on wheels for Nevaeh-Divine.
It’s a changing unit with storage at the same time but really light so it will be easy to get it in and out the bathroom. God is good ! I ended up paying 10 euro for it.
I can’t wait to use it. Since we don’t have a bathtub in this house I really needed a second bath as I prefer not to bathe the baby in the same bath as my bigger girls.

Now still a few more items to go. Hopefully Nevaeh’s child benefit application will be approved soon.

Because she wasn’t born here it took some time before I could apply and then they apparently lost the form and I needed to apply again.
So hopefully that is settled soon and that we’ll also get the payments for the past months.
Since I’m not really working lately (I’m not getting much out of my AVON business yet) I really need it to get some stuff for Nevaeh and the other kids.
But for now I can’t complain with getting one thing of my list. Yay !
I hope we’ll have lots of fun with it.
I just got to put it together now.
I hope there are no missing parts…..God please…


My camera is broken snd I don't know how to get images from our handycam on my laptop yet, so I searched for a picture online.

It looks like this one a bit




but is actually a Babylo so as this one but then with blue accesories like the one above.




I'm so happy with it. It's really a bargain looking at the price it normally would cost. Glory to God ! He knows just how to provide in our needs and gives us the wishes of our hearts.


Love,

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.






Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.
I still have a s…

What Kids Wore Wednesday; Kitty love (day 11)

Ir's Wednesday so it's time for another Kids outfit post. As I mentioned in my last What Kids Wore Wednesday post, Nevaeh really loves bunnies a lot and she loves clothes with bunnies on them. In the same way Yovannah really loves cats and clothes with cats on them. We mostly buy clothes from H & M because they have cute items of reasonable quality and low prices and we had gotten a gift card from H & M a while back so we are used to shopping there.
They happen to have a lot of cats and bunnies in their collection for some reason, so the girls could not be more pleased with shopping there. They get to pick their own clothes so when Yovannah saw this cute black skirt, she really had to have it. I love it too. It is made out of ‘leather look’ fabric and it has this cute face on it and on the top of the skirt there are two ears sticking out.
In the pictures she is wearing it with a blue/grey-ish top with a cat on it and dark grey tights with a black stripy pattern on t…
