I did not mind you stepping out of your comfort zone Stella please feel free to do it again anytime..

Now dearest peoples I don't know whether you print and file or store on your pc each assignment as it comes in. What I have done is given you a categeory in my e-mails and have made an excel spreadsheet with little ticks on it.

These ticks are not better, best wonderful or anything of the gold star winner of the week award, they are just simply number crunching.. so for the three assignments I have

Ann - v v v
Helen- v
Dermot- v v v
BC - v
Mau - v v v
Greenfingers - v v v
Rosie - v v v
ChAtoTic - v

Stella and Les one each starting on assignment three

And Errol who has yet to rattle his dags.

Please tell me if I didn't get one that others may have..


Edit: I did put lovely ticks but GR has given me Vs... so look at them as V for victory of assignment done and dusted. ;-)

Good morning everyone :-D

Thank you Ann...ooh three bonus points! I'm a lucky girl :-D
I've printed your new list, some good suggestions there.

cor you're well organised Persie.......v for victory I like that.....sometimes getting assignments done and dusted does (sometimes) seem like a battle ;-)

Have a smashing Sunday friends
Mau xxx


AnninGlos Report 14 Jul 2013 13:01

Perse Lol. I store them in my e mail files. but that looks about right, not sure re BC though I thought we may have had two. I'll check.


AnninGlos Report 14 Jul 2013 13:03

Yes BC should be 2. A snippet from my family Christmas and A walk with my dog. :-)


Persephone Report 14 Jul 2013 13:18

gone midnight here Ann so am off to bed... I will take another look tomorrow afternoon my time for dear little Buttercup.

This is why I did my spreadsheet... not well organised at all Mau .. was scrolling up and down the e-mails. I had to give them a category or else they would be in amongst the masses of jokes and other e-mails I get.

Cheers all Persie :-)


ButtercupFields Report 14 Jul 2013 13:24

So sorry Persie, but I left you off my list by mistake (plus a few others! *blush)..put it down to the heat or creativity or downright technophobia or something...lol... (have re-sent it to you)..now if someone could please help me in getting a story from Google Drive to my blog They have changed the system and have me flummoxed.

*waves to all xxxx


AnninGlos Report 14 Jul 2013 13:30

Not used google drive Bc Is your blog a google one? If so doesn't it give you google drive option?

Put a general query on the board. Errol or Rollo may have the answer.


Nyx Report 14 Jul 2013 13:38

~~~~~~ feebly lol, I can't think in this weather :-|


Persephone Report 14 Jul 2013 20:59

Popped in to say thank you for your e-mail BC.

and to say my chart works, it works.

maybe senders (ha ha not me) should have a ticked chart of some sort.

I will read your story later Butters darling..

and now must go before I get ticked off for being on here and not doing what I am supposed to be doing. :-) :-) :-)



Greenfingers Report 15 Jul 2013 18:38

Hi Ann

I am sending mine as attachments now as it is easier all round to know what I have done....everyone seems to have opened, except Dermot, I have told him how to do it, but havent heard anything back....


PS enjoying the challenges again


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 15 Jul 2013 20:29

My apologies to everyone, I've been trying to sort out some stuff with regards to my new job, so I can get a start date.

My daughter has also decided to decorate her bedroom. This involves having a sort out of her possessions and throwing things she no longer wants, also putting the things she wants to keep in bags/boxes and moving them into other rooms.

Consequently my house has been invaded. I can't actually believe that she has managed to fit so much stuff into her bedroom because it's taken over the rest of the house. I'm helping her to paint and due to the heat we're doing it in the slightly cooler hours, this plus me trying to get other stuff done means it's taking ages to do so I've done nothing re writing. I will try to get something done soon, if I can concentrate with all the mess around me that is :-D


AnninGlos Report 15 Jul 2013 20:43

As long as technically you are still with us Julie. We didn't know whether or not to continue sending you stuff. :-) Sounds like your life is living up to your board name :-D


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 15 Jul 2013 21:41

It is at the moment Ann :-D :-D

Keep sending, I am reading a few at a time and enjoying them too. I may even get organised and send feedback to those who want it soon.


AnninGlos Report 15 Jul 2013 21:58

I think we all accept feedback Julie so thanks.


Nyx Report 18 Jul 2013 16:54

Hello All :-)

Ann,,when is the next piece due please? I have lost the plot lol , not written a thing, not had a sensible thought in my head, or even a whisper of an idea, so I will be late I fear.


AnninGlos Report 18 Jul 2013 17:05

You have another week to get in gear Rose. :-D


Nyx Report 18 Jul 2013 17:17

I shall need every moment of it Ann lol. Thankyou :-)


ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 18 Jul 2013 17:20
