Since last year all odds and end of coins have gone into a large Teddy, this is becoming something of a tradition, and today was the day we emptied it and took the coins to the bank. It is so heavy we had to get Chris to carry it downstairs and then it was put into smaller bags.
After lunch it was fun time at the bank, first getting the machine stuck and then filling it so full we had to get it emptied. They had half of the proceeds £40+ each.

Abigail worked on her crochet project, managing to work a row of star stitch, not an easy task, and a number of other rows.

As always it is such a delight having the girls come to stay and today is really quiet without them.
