I had to get some money out of the bank yesterday.
That's not much of a story, is it? Well.. there's a reason WHY I am starting off with this.
When I withdrew the money, I had a couple of twenties.
New £20 notes, that is.
They're the new plastic twenty pound notes. I hadn't had one before, so had a look at when they first went into circulation. The date was February 20th, so I'm only a month or so behind.
The person honoured on the reverse is J.M.W Turner, who was a famous British painter who was born in 1775 and died in 1851.
