Grandad and Nanna feed Andrew for a year
Andrew and I were on the beach as usual this afternoon and for the second Saturday running I found coins: this time they were one five-cent and two two-cent coins, lying amongst shrubs planted on top of a wall where I was picking up litter.

The message that came with the coins this time was "you don't need so much money now Deb, so we left you a smaller (and more usual) amount than last week".
Last week's find on the beach was a 2-euro coin and I understood it to be the first contribution towards this month's school meal money payment for 4-year-old Andrew. But it turned out that the 2 euros was not needed for that purpose, because during the interval between last Saturday and this, the school secretary's assistant told Valentina that she should reclaim from her bank the money just paid by direct debit to the school, because the school had awarded Andrew a grant that covered the cost of his school meals throughout the current school year.
Neither Val nor I had had the slightest inkling that the school gave out grants to children whose teachers considered them needy, or that Andrew was being considered for one. I could not believe the news at the time Valentina gave it to me, and still cannot: a school that would do such a thing is so utopian that it belongs to the world of dreams, rather than the world in which we live.
Well, when I do come to accept this as fact, I will attribute it to Grandad's and Nanna's doing, motivated as always by unconditional love.
