My Lucky Money Pot!

Well. it's Sunday evening once again - they roll round quickly don't they? 
I think I may have said that a few times before :))

We have had a fairly quiet weekend. 
The weather here is really, really cold.  
Hovering around 0C, it's been snowing and the wind would cut you in two. Brrrr!!!!

 Snow might sound quite good but it the kind that doesn't lie - I can't even go out and build a snowman!!

As a result I have hardly been out this weekend - who wants to go out in the cold?!?  
The only time I ventured out was to take the girls out and bring them back when needed.  
On the plus side though I did manage to get lots of housework done though - that can't be bad:))

The trouble is the weather is not supposed to get any better next week.  

Didn't somebody say it was the first day of Spring on 20th March - pah - I think they may have been pulling our leg.  

Anyway I'm sure Spring will pop it's head up sooner or later - sooner hopefully!
Since there is not much worth photographing outside I decided to see what I could find inside. 

And here it is.  
My lucky money pot.
  It's one of the one's that you have to smash to get the money out. 
I've had it for a couple of years and have put coins in when possible.  
 Hopefully it will go someway to paying for a bit of our holiday at the end of the year. 

I can hardly wait to get into it to see how much is there but at the same time I don't really want to smash it.

This is ithe quote on the back of it. 

Isn't it great?

And here I am putting another £2 in to add to the pot. 

Hopefully there will be lots of lovely cash in there when the time comes. 

Have a great week ahead everyone :))

Do nas też wiosna nie chce przyjść. Skarbonka wyglada bardzo ładnie i nie rozbijaj jej, póki monety sie w niej mieszczą.Pozdrawiam.
For us it will not come spring. Piggy bank looks very nice and does not crush, while coins in the fall. Yours.

Keep stuffing that money in there! Looks like a great thing to do, and know you are looking forward to that trip! Hope it warms up there for you soon. even chilly here in Texas yet and I did about the same thing that you did this weekend. Fun stuff, housework!

I don't have anything near as nice as this...I use jars such as what spaghetti sauce comes in or pickles...make a slot in the lid, and use them. I have one for each coin.

Just seen on the news footage of the snow blizzard on the island of Arran. Couldn't believe the amount of snow over your way! Love the money pot but too lovely to smash.
