Guess how much is in the box

Eyup lasses ar ta gooin on ?
Excuse my odd start just thought I'd throw in a bit of yorkshire for you.
As usual when I write my blog lately I'm just letting my cereal and cuppa settle before I do my wii workout. I'm still at it which is a bit of a shock for me cos I don't usually stick to excercise.I don't really have anything to blog about today but I have a bit of time to kill so I'm here as usual but with nothing to say.
OOh I know....We're off to the supermarket today but this week we'll be going to tesco rather than morrisons (which is where we go most weeks) because we can never get parked at morrisons at the end/beginning of a month. Lots more people must shop when they get paid at the end of the month and our morrisons is on the edge of town with not a very big carpark so at this weekend we go to tesco instead which is out of town and has a huge carpark.
We're not huge fans of tesco but it does mean we can take the box of loose change we've gathered over the last few months and change them in the coinstar machine there. Hubby and I seem to end up with lots of small change and we put it in a wood box  until it gets full, then we take it and cash it in towards our shopping.
Why is she telling us this I hear you say well here's why.
Lets play guess how much money is in the box. I'll put a picture on and you can leave a guess of how much change you think is in the box in the comments and we'll see who gets closest. The closest guess will recieve a prize.
Typical I just went to take a photo of the box and the blooming camera batteries are out of charge!!!!!!!!!
I've plugged them in for a quick boost and will go do my excercises and come back to taking the photo afterwards. So see you in a bit x
Ok I'm back girls here's the piccie
Guess how much change is in the box, there are coins of every denomination in there but mainly small coins rather than pounds etc. The box measures 11.5cm high  by 15cm deep by 20cm wide


Guess how much is in the box
I'll post the results next weekend and the closest guess can choose a free pair of earrings OR a bagcharm from my website http://www.prettyjewelery.co.uk/ as a prize.
I'll give the name of the winning guesser next weekend when I post the amount we claimed and give details of how to choose and claim your prize.
Please leave your guess via the comment box before next saturday morning. The guess closest to the amount we get paid will win. Due to difference in postage rates and regulations abroad I'll only post the prize to a UK address (sorry)

  2. Eyup Andie, My John told me to say that, as I read out to him how you started your post and he said she has to be a Yorkshire lass.
    So reading your plan for the day shopping and parking its a big problem for most people isn't it, I am quite lucky as I have a 6min walk into town to shop at Asda or I can go other direction to Aldi in less time. Our Morrissions is other side of town so I don't bother with that one.
    Thanks for your lovely comment Andie, and I think I will have a guess at how much money is in the box. I guess £68.00.
    Have a lovely weekend. Julie.C xx

  3. Haha, read your bit on busymitts first and was procrastinating (if that is the right word) on how to guess, cause I didn't know the size of the box - should have come here first eh? Still, now I know the size, and it doesn't make the job any easier tho (haha). I'll take a stab at £45.78p - how precise is that then......

  4. Hmmmm.....I'll say £61.83 & 2 foreign coins you didn't notice! Now, how's that for precise?
    As for speaking Yorkshire - I understood every word....My Dad was a Yorkshireman, & I still have family up there. They live in Shipton by Benningbourgh. My grandparents came from Stanley. Small world eh?
