Fresh back from a very post-worthy "holiday", Dash is welcomed at the gate by the boys next door. Within minutes, while we unload our car-ful of gear, the lads have cooked up a plan to take over the business world... or at least the neighbourhood.
Unwanted SillyBandz are collected in snaplock bags ready to be sold... Old McD's toys are gathered into groups, ready for the market....
Somebody makes a sign. It says "MINI SALE". Cute.
We down-bags and hang over the garden fence to capture the cuteness. Awwww. They think they're actually gonna sell stuff!! (Don't they remember how last time Dash sat there for an hour and not one person walked past...?)
But wait!!! A pram-pushing Mummy out for a walk! With a preschooler in tow! The boys show her their cute sign, and offer her their wares.
She is a kindhearted soul and offers them her scraps of change.
"I have 90 cents," she says, "What can I get for that?"
