    I thought i'd count my pennies in my penny jar to pay off some more of my CC in a bid to get the interest payments down. Anyway, I have £14 in 5s, 2s and 1s.

    There is a pile of 2ps 80p. So i decided to go on a hunt around the house for more pennies. Go to the kitchen and see my OH has only half put the shopping away. So i go to put the fabric softener in the little bathroom where we store it and I drop it!. An entire bottle of comfort pure. I was NOT pleased.

    So I sat on the bathroom floor and spooned it back into the bottle :rofl:

    Needless to say, my bathroom floor is the best smelling in the UK.

    I didn't manage to find the extra 20p in 2ps. Managed 6p. Anyone gonna offer me 7 2ps to make up my £1 :p
