This machine may dispense £5 notes


I wanted to blog about cashpoints. I even put it in the Notes bit of my mobile phone - "blog about cashpoints", it says. Now, I know my dad still can't use them, I know Speedbank was the first buzzword surrounding the new holes-in-the-wall of the 1980s, I know receiving your first PIN in the post was tantamount to espionage when you were 15, and I know John Hegley used to use his cashcard as a plectrum when playing his mandolin onstage.

But I've no idea what specifically prompted me to make this note saying "blog about cashpoints". Have you?
