Never mind, it amused me.
It only seems like yesterday that the Reserve Bank changed the dollar note to a coin but it was in fact 1991. And since then, in 2006, they simply wiped out any coin with a value of less than 10 cents.
When I tipped out the contents of my wallet this morning I could only come up with one note and a few coins and I pondered how the purpose of my wallet has changed. Once it was primarily for money, now mine contains just about anything but money. Cards, more cards than anything else. I carry the ones I use reaonably regularly in my wallet and the rest in a little holder I keep in the car.
Some things change, some things stay the same. The Queen of England still appears on the back of every coin and note - or it is the front?
We have a long weekend this weekend although I prefer to think of it as an extra day off for my birthday. I'll be in Auckland and celebrating with little Aiden who will be two next week. Will be back on Monday to choose the Spotlight photos for this week. I'm already wondering what the rest of the FSO team will come up with. They will be here if you'd like to have a look.
