    Can you put me down for 10 NSDs please and 3 in a row?

    Just missed my target of 10 last month so feeling determined. (cue Rocky-esque music)

    A 2 day hangover worked in my favour last weekend, so also declaring NSDs 1 & 2 for the 2nd & 3rd.

    Oh dear,I wish you hadn't mentioned Rocky...he's Igor's hero,yup.would you believe it...Cue Igor in shorts and singlet with a towel round his neck doing the old one two....

    Good Afternoon everyone!

    I know I've dropped off the radar for a few months while I settled into my new job but I'd like to play again please!

    Marmite....(Hello! I've missed playing!) could you put me down for 12 days please with 3 in a row?) That's if you'll have me back!

    I can guarantee that tomorrow won't be one of them as it is pay day and I have some purchases to make but I'm really excited about taking part again!

    Thank you.
