Giving away the family silver

Tonight I found a bolt, a budgie bell, a UMO and a 20p bit. The 20p is a four-fold increase on last night’s findings which suggests that I’ll be a millionaire by Christmas.

I was just packing up when I got into conversation with a guy who has walked round the coast of Britain earning bits of money along the way by doing pebble sculptures. At Bexhill he’d created a 3D seagull and a racing car from the multi-coloured rocky palette that the beach offers. He was a nice bloke so I gave him the 20p. I now feel doubly guilty: only 20p AND giving away everything I’d earned.

I have to find 80p tomorrow or my ‘every day four times more’ theory is toast.
