#PKTMNYparents blogger challenge 6

I just read a blog post on BritMums asking parent bloggers to say what our children do or would do, with pocket money. So here is my entry for the BritMums and pktmny blog challenge linky.For D it’s always the same, his pocket money goes into his bank via standing order each week and he saves until he’s reached his goal.

He would love a new home I’m sure, I have […]

He had thousands, we only had a couple of hundred notes each, and he had properties with hotels! Was cute, while it lasted.
