Here's a nice feelgood tale. I was down in the dumps earlier, as we basically can't afford our printing costs in order to be able to exhibit at London Film & Comic Con 2012. But then I remembered the groaning plastic bag full of loose change which has been steadily growing through the years, sitting, too heavy to lift now, in our conservatory next to the wellies. Faye told me that apparently Tesco have these machines you can pour all your coppers into and it'll give you a voucher you can then exchange for cash, albeit minus 8% commission. Well, Ariel and I went up there today and I dragged the bag through the car park and into the store. We stood in front of the machine, feeding coins, for 45 minutes. We attracted quite a crowd of onlookers, plus four security guards and a few hopeful-looking homeless gentlemen. This photograph illustrates how much we ended up with, which is all now being put towards the printing costs, which we still can't afford, but hey. We have £240 more than we had this morning!
