The answers:

  1. Dear Beth
    You are going to have to make your competitions a little easier than the above if you are expecting anyone to post entries - I got about 5/20.


  2. Dear Grangey

    I was expecting people to cheat! I was expecting them to Google all the lyrics and wipe the board! Goes to show that Lewesians are just too honest for their own good.

    But hey, thanks for becoming a follower. Love your secret pic.
