    Oh guys .. Would I please be able to join in ?
    I've been terrible lately .. I do the grocery challenge over on old style and count my NSD on that but I think this looks really good 😀

    If possible could I go for 9 this month (I already have a couple from the GC) so will count these but I want 9 in total and I'm going to see if I can get 3 in a row .. I think this is how it works ?

    I'm also during the PAD challenge but I'm not counting this as a spend .. Hope that's ok ?

    Thanks guys x
    This time I'm sticking with it !!
