    Hi everyone, Hope you have all had a nice bank holiday weekend, the weather in NW Leicestershire has been glorious. 
    I wish I could say the same about my potting over the last couple of months, as it has been shocking although I did get two £2 coins in my change over the weekend, so they have gone into my pot.
    Have a great week.

    Hello folks, £2.67 potted today. I found a pound under my kitchen counter yesterday..yippee. The window cleaner just text me to say that he is coming tomorrow...but I am not going to raid the pot this time! My new tin is a lot harder to access without a tin opener so it just means I'll have to walk to the bank for the 2nd time today I guess :smiley:

    Good Afternoon, folks, again, what a gorgeous week we're in for.
    To all SPC members who are poorly or low in anyway, get well soon. Best wishes from us all here at SPC! 3

    An excellent amount potted Hetty!!
    I'm not too sure about other veg, but I do know that runner beans can be sown now. It's possibly best to get information on anything else from other allotment owners. All the best.

    Ooh poor you Saver-upper! Labyrinthitis is horrible with it's wicked dizziness and vertigo, the best place to be is in bed!! 
    I'm so glad you've finally been able to get back onto the site and especially here on SPC. Though old faces - cheek??!😣 😂 
    Brilliant potting!!! 

    Very well potted LMD!! loof after yourself.

    What great weather for the BHW you had madlyn! It wasn't too bad down in the south, but you definitely had it better!! 
    Potting for the majority of us isn't going great guns, but don't forget the Cost Of Living crisis is affecting us a great deal: it's ok for the wealthier ones and for the better paid, but for those of us who don't get so much, it's definitely making holes in our pockets!!
    Do the best you possibly can, but don't worry too much if you're unable to pot much! Take care. 

    Brilliant work with keeping your money in your pot blubella, getting money for the window cleaner from the bank will be far better as at least you'll still have your money in your pot!! :D Cleaning through the house more regularly also gives you more chance of finding cash to pot!! Fingers crossed.

    Enjoy the week, folks, especially Wednesday. 😀

    Some brilliant saving going on, well done everyone 👏 
    Our weekend with the family went really well, the girls are growing up so fast. Our eldest Gdd is chatting away and making sense! The youngest is sitting up and burbling away, not making any sense 🤣
    Another five pounds and a bit of change in the pot this week. Enjoy the sunshine if you have it 🌤

    £7.44 tidied over into a separate virtual pot for my travel fund. Going to keep two pots on the go. My SP is almost full, so may need to purchase a separate pot or maybe raid the office for any empty coffee canister to upcycle!

    Crammed Ant??! It almost sounds as though you've had fistfuls to put it!! Crikey, no wonder you're nearly about to start your overflow pot!! 😯 Plus the 50p of course!!
    Excellent work Ant!!!😊
    Plus £FOUR???!! 😯 Flipping heck!😣
    Ooh brilliant potting LMD, superb potting!!

    I'm so very pleased you had such a wonderful time with the family, Siju
    As I remember your elder Dgd is roughly the same age as our elder Ggd which is about 2 & 1/2, she too is doing very well with talking. It's quite baffling when they burble away not making any sense to themselves, let alone anyone else!! 🤣
    Very well done with your £5! 
    We've had several gorgeous days, and enjoyed each beautiful one!!

    Brilliant potting blubella!!! 😄 I'd go for an empty pot then pot the money it would have cost for a new one! 😉

    £10 from the account and transferred to the SPC account!!

    Have a BRILLIANT WEEKEND, folks!!
