English term or phrase: GBP 11s.5d electricty bill
The sentence goes like this: "(...) this reminded me of how poor I was, epsecially for a man with GBP 11s.5d electricity bill to pay before the end of the month (discount 3s. 3.d, but much too late for that now)." I don't quite understand the whole business with discount and bill amounts expressed as figures and letters and will appreciate any hints.
