How this famous 'Only Fools And Horses' Saying Relates to us!
And he was right.
Eco Shop in Diksmuide (and with a chain of stores right through Belgium) have great recycled gear and we had purchased a near new single bed for one of our cabins.
We also dropped off a few bits to sell, you sign up with them and they sell your gear (ask them first what they will take) and pay a percentage of the sale price into your account and a percentage into theirs (you receive a touch more than they do).
The shop manager grinned as I gave him my details for the proceeds from our sale items. Meanwhile Noel, (rolling his eyes) paid the membership fee (7 Euros). I pocketed Noel's change too.
Then we discovered the bed that we had originally paid for had been mistakenly sold, so we had to choose another, which was 5 Euros less. Yes, I pocked the 5 Euros.
If I keep this up,' I said, 'this time next year we'll be millionaires!'
Noel came out scratching his head! We then proceeded to roll the bed home - we don't have a car, just a motorbike (which isn't much good transporting a bed!)
