@Pennyforthem I also thought they were due tonight, just checked, but as I submitted mine days ago I am O.K. I'm sure if you bung them in now SD won;t mind, after all she hasn't posted the answers yet and with a bit of luck she will be too busy nursing a hangover from her mum's party to notice, :shock: :grin:

Re: Need a few good vibes - and taking a 2 week 'sabbatical'
by Silverdarling » 24 Nov 2013, 18:34

Decided to take two weeks away from the forum, while things get sorted at work. I know roughly what will probably occur in the next 2 weeks, and want to give myself some thinking time, and be ready for it. Life has come at me pell-mell the past couple of weeks, and I need a bit of downtime.

Crimble quiz still ongoing, and I will put up the next two rounds, to keep you going :razz: may get the chance to put up answers but may not, it depends what happens at work tomorrow. But the suspense will do you good and I promise to pick things up in a couple of weeks, once things have calmed down.

Hasta la vista!
