"I've just found 20 thousand pound dollars. Can I keep it? ~ Harvey

It was actually a twenty pence piece that he'd found that must have fallen out of my purse when I'd been doing the weekly emptying of all the old receipts stuffed inside of it.

I went on to explain about different currencies and the dollars that he had probably heard about were the green.

"Dollars are just mouldy money then are they if they are green?"

My explanation had obviously been a very pathetic attempt and I should have gone into much more detail.

We talked all the way to school about how different countries often have their own kind of currency. They asked really interesting questions like "were the notes the same size?" and "did they have coins too?"

I can't wait to take them abroad next year. They will love soaking up the atmosphere and a different way of life. Plans are in the pipeline so I won't divulge too much as I know Alyssa enjoys reading what I type on here. I want it to be a bit of a surprise for them.
