My family isn't unfortunately financially flushed and normally I would say that I would not let my daughter go without however the catch is we do this but buying second hand everything.
Growing up I got all my clothes from the car boot sales and charity shops I didn't know any different and it's been similar for Autumn. I was desperate to get her swimming lesons but they are pricey. And
I want her to have something I want her to have a bike and this I want her to have new.
My husband has this week off work so when he had an hour to kill with Autumn yesterday he took her to halfords to have a nose around and she found the bike of her dreams.
So I will do what I can (selling my stuff) so she can have something that is hers shiny and new.
At halfords after having a little nosy on line they actually make the bike free of charge and give it a 6 month check too.
Building a bike no matter how small is seriously out of my jurisdiction.
It's £99.99 and it is a lot of money for us but it's a one off cost and this bike will last her a good number of years.
She loved it my husband said she was riding on her own (with stabilisers) and I'm so sad I missed it.
But in going to save so hard so that I get to see my gorgeous girl ride it.
The full range of children's bikes by halfords can be found here.
I look forward to saving and then doing a review of my daughter throughly enjoying this bike ready for the summer.
