    I stumbled across the following on FB today and thought it might give you a giggle

    FIFTY SHADES OF GREY BY PAM AYRES
    The missus bought a Paperback, down Shepton Mallet way,
    I had a look inside her bag;...T'was "Fifty Shades of Grey".
    Well I just left her to it, and at ten I went to bed.
    An hour later she appeared; the sight filled me with dread.
    In her left hand she held a rope; and in her right a whip!
    She threw them down upon the floor, and then began to strip.
    Well fifty years or so ago; I might have had a peek;
    But Mabel hasn't weathered well; she's eighty four next week!!
    Watching Mabel bump and grind; could not have been much grimmer.
    And things then went from bad to worse; she toppled off her Zimmer!
    She struggled back upon her feet; a couple minutes later;
    She put her teeth back in and said "I am a dominator!!"
    Now if you knew our Mabel, you'd see just why I spluttered,
    I'd spent two months in traction for the last complaint I'd uttered.
    She stood there nude and naked bent forward just a bit
    I went to hold her, sensual like and stood on her left tit!
    Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out; My God what had I done!
    She moaned and groaned then shouted out: "Step on the other one!!"
    Well readers, I can tell no more; of what occurred that day.
    Suffice to say my jet black hair, turned fifty shades of grey!!

    Just checked out her website http://pamayres.com/ - if that's a recent picture, then she's hardly aged!

    Challenge 22, something under £10, has been ticked off: one of my twitter wins finally arrived and it's a 'chocolate picture maker'.

    Was considering stashing it aside for the bairn's christmas pile, but it has a short expiry date so we have to make and eat it instead, shame

    I think the idea was to introduce new comping companies.

    I will have to start looking for something for that one too

    Yes, that's what the challenge is "never been on the site before" to bring in new companies.

    She mighten loosen her reins and allow companies that haven't posted for x amount of years later in the year but not in March

    Well done on your win

    Would something "signed" not be harder to get?

    Potentially.... but I'm still waiting on a goodreads book from a wem way back in January, and I think that's signed (if it ever arrives of course) so I'm holding out for that!
