    Finally back to potting after a very expensive few weeks  - 2 weeks of taxis to the hospital and home again after DD1's hospital stay, DGD1' s 18th birthday coming up, DGD2's birthday, DD1's birthday, loaning DD2 money for a car after theirs gave up the ghost after limping along for months! The bank balance has taken a massive hit, but I'm determined to save at least as much as I did last year. Beans on toast for us for a while I think!!

    A very happy Tuesday, Potters, and I hope you had a wonderful weekend and will enjoy the new week.
    For any members who are feeling poorly or low in spirits, do get well soon. Love from us all.

    Brilliant potting from both your posts LMD!! Well done you.

    A very Happy Easter to you and the family!!!

    Very well done Ant, you think perhaps you're a little over excited about the 1p, but why not, someone else obviously didn't want it, or wasn't aware they'd lost it so why not be happy to claim it.

    Is it worth putting your roadkill into a separate pot throughout each year ?
    Prior to Covid I always did and netted a whole £19 over about 3 or 4
    years!! 
    A very Happy Easter to you all!!!

    A belated but very Happy Birthday to your MIL. and yourself, Siju!!! 🎉🎂
    Apart from too much cake I hope you both had wonderful birthdays!
    Our DD and their SIL both share the same birthdays too.

    A very Happy Easter to you and all the family and great potting!!

    It's lovely to see you again Lucy!
    You will be all spent with the taxis and birthdays!!! 😯
    A very Happy Birthday to them all!!! 🎉🎂    🎉🎂 Oh dear, cars don't last long, especially when we could do with 🚘 lasting longer. 
    All the best with your beans on toast for a while! 
    All the best with your determination reaching last year's Total!!

    A very Happy Easter to you all!! xx

    Have a very HAPPY EASTER folks!

    Happy Easter everyone.  I potted £50,95 yesterday as I’ve been paid.  Busy weekend and not back to work until Thursday so the break is very welcome.  Winston is doing well but has just finished a course of antibiotic eye drops for an eye infection.  He already had it when he came to us so goodness knows how long he’d had it.  He had always had a lot of “sleep” in his eyes but then I thought they looked a bit red so off we popped to the vets.  He’s so much brighter now ❤️
