A new coin "find", for a different purpose
Today is the first time I've ever written about two different coin "finds" in one day (I already blogged one this morning, now I'm here with one that happened this afternoon)...

At about midday Andrew and I went on my bike to the beach, as we do nearly every weekend (we live in Tenerife and the beach is a half-hour bike ride away).
After a picnic and a siesta, I put on my "Deborah the Ecologist" hat and set about picking up the rubbish off the beach, as I always do.
At one point, I spotted a 2-euro coin on its side sticking up out of the sand.
Its purpose was abundantly clear: it's the first 2 euros out of a total of 130 euros that I need to find for this month's school dinner money for Andrew, due now.
I asked Grandad, who was always one for a joke, "Payment for services rendered?", eyeing my bagful of rubbish.
I wonder if the rest of the money will come from sources as unconventional and unexpected as this? If so, it will be the subject of my next blog...
