Apologies for the patchy posting, folks. A great many things have come up, some of them rather sad, and I'm looking at a pretty mad month. Don't worry though, I'm sure I'll be moaning about it all here!

Meanwhile, here are some funny little cardboard coins I found in a charity shop, dated 1971, the year the exciting new decimal system came into use, so I assume they were a teaching aid. No idea what to do with them, I just couldn't leave them in the shop!
