Cheque from auctioneers

I know some of you have been waiting to hear how much I got for selling my pottery at Cato Crane's Auction.

It started off okay, they sold for £23.00

However they then charged me £6.76 commission and £9.00 "lot" charge and £.58 insurance plus £1.68 VAT, so the cheque they have sent me is for £4.98

There are several lessons to be learnt here - first of all stop watching cash in the attic, it just doesnt work like that, secondly, take up car booting instead and thirdly, encourage your children to be auctioneers when they grow up so that you can live in the manner to which you would like to become accustomed!
