I have come to love my pretty jar on my work surface. I do not stress about how much I put in but it is lovely to see it gradually filling up.
The Car Parks in our nearest town do not even take 5p's anymore so they have started to drop in. This morning it was full. The lid would not even fit properly so I counted all the change. Last time I had £7.52 and this time I had £8.12 -- so those 5p's are making a difference. So that is a grand total in 2013 of £15.64!!
I can honestly say I have not missed those pennies and although it might not be a huge amount every little helps.
I am going to take this little jar full to The League Of Friends section of our cottage hospital. They do such wonderful work. And I love finding an excuse to visit as they have a wonderful handicrafts stall with some home made gems on. I am on the lookout for props for the Princess and her Pea!
So the jar is empty. But not for long. As the song goes " Love is like a Magic Penny hold it tight and you won't have any. Lend it, give it and you'll have so many they'll roll all over the floor!"
