kate5kiwis: M5's five cents' worth


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

M5's five cents' worth

On M5's *fifth* birthday it was the last day that New Zealanders could use their *five* cent pieces. Now the smallest coin in use Down Under is the ten cent. We have a h-u-g-e jar of *fives* that we use mostly for gambling at cards, but today,
during a little quiet moment, M5 decided to tip them all out on the lounge floor and make *me*, Mummy.
"See, it's you Mum, with the curly hair."

I hope you made him add them all up
of course not, tho' i did make a mental note (and now a cybernote lol) that he said to me before he got down to The Real Business of Creating, "mum, twenty of these makes one whole dollar: i know because i counted."

Talking of jeans - just check M5's pockets for holes. From recent experience, you seem to have missed your chance with S9 !
