    How brilliant is this weather?? Absolutely gorgeous <3

    A few days ago I potted £9.56, gathered from on my bedside table while I was spring-cleaning.

    I am now about to pot a £20 note. Still trying to catch up with potting after a couple of lean months

    Good Afternoon, folks, after a gorgeous week last week, not so good this week, but we do need the rain.
    To all SPC members who are poorly or low in anyway, get well soon. Best wishes from us all here at SPC! 3

    Excellent blubella, you're definitely getting to grips with the way SPC works!! 😄
    Well done with the 68p in the second post!! 😀

    Brilliant potting with the amount from both posts Ant!! Roadkill too indeed after all we said last week. 👀😉
    The weather's been brilliant for the last week Saver-upper even until yesterday!! We definitely had a lot then.., but just showers today. 
    Brilliant saving this week including during spring-cleaning and then with the £20!!!

    Brilliant potting LMD!!! As far as I know everyone is fine as are you I hope!

    My latest good news!
    -------------------------------
    Saturday was the 18th Birthday of our youngest DGS, we all had a really wonderful day!! 💖🎂🎁🫂
    We had a lovely afternoon in our DD's & SIL's garden, the weather just couldn't have been better. 
    A marvellous time was had by us all in the evening.
    DGS prefered not to have any friends as he's been at college for 2 years, instead he preferred to have all the family as well as his girlfriend.

    Hi parents planned to go to the village hall for all 23 members of the family! It was an amazing evening and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and more to the point so did he!

    The week before he applied for a job as a trainee Accountant, there were other men having applied too, so he didn't hold out much hope. 
    Last night he rang to say he'd received a call telling him he'd got the job and was ecstatic!!! 😯 He was delighted as he and his middle brother are brilliant at maths! So he's always wanted to be an accountant, so from 4th September he'll soon be well on his way!! 😂 Next week he starts his GCSE A Levels. It's been all go for our dear youngest grandson and his very proud parents!! 

    Enjoy the week, folks, especially today and Wednesday. 😀

    Sue x
    The end date for SPC is on the 24th October 2024..........BUT no later, please!

    Happy Birthday to your DGS Sue and thank you for the lovely updates.

    I bagged myself a big ol' coffee canister at work which I am going to decorate and glue shut  :D ..not quite in the overflow pot yet though.

    £15.74 into the virtual pot and 52p coinage into the SP today.

    That’s such an uplifting good news story Sue
