It didn't take long
It didn't take long for another coin to appear... this time it was just outside Val's boyfriend's house, where she lives at present, which didn't surprise me as Grandad and Nanna take such an interest in Val's and Andrew's welfare...

It was a shiny, almost new one-cent coin, which is what most of my "finds" are.
On Saturday just past I had gone on my bike to pick Andrew up from Val and take him to the beach. While Andrew was getting ready, I did what I usually do, which is pick up litter in the street outside the flat where Val lives. Mainly cigarette butts, there are so many of them I only manage a small area.
When Andrew came downstairs I tied the mouth of the bag and went over to where the bins are (the ones put there by the Council, in the street). Before I could lift the lid of the closest one, I spotted the shiny 1-cent coin just 2 handspans from the tip of my nose, lying on the lid of the bin. It could only have been there a short time because no-one could have lifted the lid to put their rubbish in the bin without the coin sliding off.
Signing off now, I'll be back with news of my next "find"...
