    I have had a much quieter month but that's largely through choice with the W/R. Total for Jan is £8.12 roadkill and £38.57 in w/r.

    I am happy that February starts off with a weekend - gonna head into town and see what I can find tomorrow! :)

    Final finds for the month of Jan were a penny at the gym, and a penny by a bus stop.

    I think HOK3Y is right - after a while you become conditioned to spotting the coins!!
