    I'll put you all out of your misery in a short while when I get to the lap top. It's a nightmare trying to do it on my phone.

    Oh well done Paula! I like to think I (ok we, me and Himself, but mostly me!) did well this week so you must have played a blinder! *applauds*

    I like the number puzzles but they made my head hurt (and were technically tqo questions in one!), I would be happy to have them again but won't riot if they're not there!

    Every now and again I throw in something a bit different to test the water so to speak. Some are popular some are hated, but always good to mix it up a bit

    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass
