    Oh Sarah,I really feel the pain for you with DS's car insurance...it's no comfort either that even the second year can be expensive too....ours came down by around £100 when we renewed...but its still almost £600.

    What car did your DS go for in the end?
    It's exciting times but yep your right such a financial drain when what they actually want is independence.

    My news....He arrived home for the summer this evening...first year at uni completed...still loving chemistry,and actually loving life.....I'm happy!

    Hi LEJC, it is so expensive isnt it.

    He has decided on a fiesta, nice little car it is too, lucky boy

    So pleased your son is home, enjoy his company while he is home xx


    Rhosynbach, so pleased for both of your children. How funny they both like the same house

    A L3go heads up

    A have rtc L3go in some stores - worth checking toy shelves and any displays.

    See HUKD threads for items to look out for - includes £20 sets down to £5 and some sets down as far as £2/£1.25. Eg Star Wars Luke landspeeder £5

    I have been to a few stores this evening and struck lucky on the last one with a few sets - not all the ones identified on HUKD were reduced in my store (and none reduced in one store )..
