8th November 2015
In December 1998 I began collecting 5p pieces in this jar. Any 5p's I had in my change at night went in. Yesterday the last 5 p went into the jar. With no real aim in mind, over the last 17 years the bottle gained weight, much like myself. Today I counted the spoils of over 6200 days of being part of my life - which put it that way seems astonishing. £27.75 and 555 coins.
Time I'll never get back, more precious than the cost of a pub lunch for two. Today's moral then - Money really doesn't buy you time....
