A couple of years ago Floyd bought me a 'Terramundi Pot' for my birthday. They are beautiful hand-painted money pots that originate from Greece. The idea is to make a wish, write your wish on a piece of paper, put it in the pot and then start saving. You can only take the contents out of the pot by smashing it! We have been putting £1 and £2 coins in it only, and recently it was becoming too full to be able to put any more in - so we smashed it open!
The people at the bank looked a little bemused when we turned up with all these coins! It's good timing though, because we've just been given the go-ahead to move into a new place - yey!!
