    Hey everyone! :beer: I'd like to join as well. Will be my first challenge ever!

    I'm going for 10 NSD since I have some birthdays coming up, along with Halloween & I will probably be on the hunt for some Christmas stuff (like candles etc). I think 10 days are a good start :D

    I'm going to go for 5 NSD this month. I'd like to think that I can do more but I'll probably give up if I think I'm not doing well!



    Can I change my target?
    Having thought more carefully about my rules for a NSD, I'm going to aim for 10. I'm feeling very excited and looking forward to tomorrow!

    I think I'm going to go for 15 again as half term could be costly!

    A big welcome to all newbies! :wave:

    Hi to cuddlymarm,butterfly2507,Vicky496,ott09,financially exposed,belleandthebudget,black cat,tatabubbly and Aloofdragon

    In case I haven't mentioned it already,our HQ is at Ennessdee Towers.We have a slightly demented (don't tell him I said that) chef called Igor,who has a very particular cuisine ie it's inedible.
    He also has a lovely sharp set of chef's knives,so best to stay in his good books.He's an avid collector of cookbooks;his current favourite is a Fanny Craddock/The Hairy Bikers fusion cuisine.He's also hoping to appear in TGBBO next year! :eek::eek:

    Igor has,of course,a trusty and trusting sidekick,waiter and washer-upper (difficult to do when you've got hooves for hands) -Hubert the donkey.Hubert is very eager to please,likes everything pink'n'sparklyand is sadly incontinent.Best notto sneak up behind him,as he might leave a puddle.

    Once Hubert has sorted out who's sitting where,Igor will trot off to make the hot drinks.Please bring a cup with you -we've run out.
    Anyone fancy a yummy pilchard and lemon cupcake? :D

    PS post as much as you want.Posting everyday can be a great motivation...:)

    Don't forget, marmite, we have to get everyone together to catch the ferry/plane/Tardis to Munich......Will you be doing the final briefing? If so, remember the dress code - lederhosen or frilly skirts, whichever they fancy. And we can do final dance rehearsals en route, Igor has found this fabulous German Oompah band, called Die Guten Alten Jungen, or something like that.......and don't forget to mention the beer and sausage....

    Danke schön Fräulein Nargle. :eek:

    Das war sehr shocking. :( Warum haben Sie das naughty Wort geschrieben?

    Das Wort ist jetzt verboten,ja!

    Ein Befehl ist ein Befehl! (An order is an order)!

    Anyone who breaks this command shall be put on a strict sauerkraut detox.You'll be begging for Igor's cooking before the day's out.....:eek::eek:
