Pocket Money: Wot so Funee?

Wot So Funee?

From the lips of the Bug…

I have an axe to grind with Mummy. You see, we’re supposed to get £2 each every Saturday, but we forget to ask, or she forgets to pay, or we’re out without money when we remind her. It’s all very convenient…

She has promised to set up a Roosterbank or PKTMNY account for us so that money can be sent magically from her account to ours every week by pocket money fairies. I’m not exactly sure how I get it out of there to spend it, but I’m not fussy, if it’s in my name it’s mine and I’ll cross that bridge when I’ve got the £315 I need for the Death Star.

In the meantime, I’ve been planning what to do with the coins in my Darth Vader money box, figuring out how to make extra money by selling my old toys (what? I’m sure a Bob the Builder vintage Scoop with sticking plaster on the broken bit will go for a mint on Ebay!), and getting my financial vocabulary sorted for the future.

Recent money-related observations:

“I’ve saved so much money that instead of buying a house when I’m older, I’m going to buy 200 Skylanders.”

When discussing the fate of Han Solo Daddy said something about him having a Bounty on his head. Now I’ve seen Han Solo, and I know he’s in big trouble, but as I pointed out:

“Han does not have a Bounty on his head, Daddy! Nor a Milky Way, nor a Mars Bar!”

And finally, Daddy is always sniffing around mytoys and deciding that certain things don’t get played with any more. He often mentions taking things to the charity shop. Well, I wasn’t having that, and I told him so:

“The toys are staying Daddy, but I’ll have a word with Mummy, and we’ll take you to the charity shop!”

Mummy perked up at that suggestion so I’ll keep you posted on what we get in exchange 😉

  1. Brilliant! I love that Bug would like 200 Skylanders and to take Daddy to the charity shop. Thank you for hosting lovely lady, have linked up a post about cars, turtles and cling-ons 🙂

  2. I saw this and thought that you might find this to be a good tactic when trying to extract money from your parents: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=530703790337059&set=a.102107073196735.4429.102099916530784&type=1&theater

  3. My husband’s always looking at which toys can go to the charity shop, too – obsessed with clearing out and tidying! And love the no bounty, mars bar comment!

  4. I really do want to join in with this linky! I HAVE LOADS of stuff I could use, especially now that Z has started school and is coming out with all sorts of weird and wonderful comments!
    Now, pocket money… at what age do you start having to dole that out then?

  5. Haha, money is always going to be a popular topic of conversation with kids I think. Sorry forgot to link up on Tues! Crazy week!
