    Yes I’m having a lot more dealings with cash lately Sue
    It makes it a lot easier to pot cash savings alongside the electronic savings such as travel savings 
    .
    Another £4.25 in coins into the pot today

    Hi everyone, what a lovely couple of days, especially today. I hope you all had a very good week.

    Brilliant potting blubella!

    Thanks a lot Ant. That's good to hear, we'll have to check in ours...time will tell. BTW T & I will be away until the weekend, so if you could keep a lookout for any new members I'd be grateful, thanks a lot. I'll put a note lower as well as Siju's on every day.

    T & I will be away until the weekend Siju, just in case of any new members etc, many thanks.

    Have a lovely Monday folks and throughout the week!

    Hope you’re having a lovely time Sue

    Not much has gone into pot at the moment due to being away. I am using cash where I can but bigger shops like weekly shop is paid for by card so I’ve decided to do what a lot of others have been doing and that is to move any odd numbers on my account to a separate savings account and just moved over 94p 😂

    Have a lovely day whatever the weather, it’s currently a mixed bag here in Scotland but it has stopped raining for a minute and the sun is trying to break through. I much prefer the cooler weather in UK though compared to the 40*+ in Oz we get in the summer months.

    HELLO AGAIN SPCers!! I hope you're all very well.
    We had an absolutely wonderful HOLIDAY  🥰

    I hope all those missing are well, if not that you soon will be. Take very good care everyone! Best wishes ❤️


    We had a really fantastic time thanks you Siju only 1 wettish day, but not wet enough to spoil it! It whizzed by for us too. 
    Brilliant potting!!

    We had a fabulous time thanks Ant and as I said to Siju just the 1 wet day but not enough to spoil it. We went to Bournemouth and bought T a couple of waistcoats which he really needed. 
    It always gets quiet in summer, but as you said, still potting going on with like!

    We had a smashing time thanks mummytummy!!  
    I don't blame you with saving! Whatever suits you...do it!! 😉

    Mmm...not surprised at the weather you had in Scotland, we had some lovely weather in the New Forest, our home area, hopefully you made the most of it, but we've had some gorgeous holidays in Scotland since 2003, beautiful!! 🥰
    I know we all moan about the British weather, but I know darn well I really couldn't cope with the heat in Oz!!🥵

    We've had a brilliant time LMD, really lovely! 
    Excellent potting with your £30 potted yesterday, fantastic!!!


    Enjoy a lovely Wednesday, folks. 😀

    So pleased you had a lovely holiday Sue-UU, we are off to the New Forest soon for a long weekend and I'm really hoping for good weather. 

    We are dog sitting for our DD this week, it's so lovely to have the two of them to stay, especially at this time of year when they enjoy running around the garden. 

    Another fiver and some change in the pot this week. Take care and enjoy your week 😊
