So even though the weather has been shocking, I got up early on Sunday morning to go to what will probably be my last car boot sale of the year. I went with my Dad, so he insisted on going earlier than I would normally go, and when we got there it was so quiet.

I got these two from two different girls, both for 50p each. The High Beam looks not even used, it’s still a full bottle! And I’ve checked online to see if it’s a fake, and it appears real!…
