i chickened out of joining in with this great game, mainly cos i didn't have a goat to milk, fish to gut or ingredients for toothpaste!!!.

buttttt....i got my copy this morning, and remembering this thread decided to see what you all picked..... :lol: :shock:

i hope people take this post in jest, i'm still new here and didnt 'know' everyones sense of humour, but this tickled my fancy!

so....

snapdragon pg 42.....completely do-able page...i'd have been happy with it!.

Shirlz pg 45.....interesting...possibly do-able if you have the necessary items (room to find loop holes on this page!)

wombats fav number 257.... :lol: ....if only you'd picked pg 259! (speaking as a kiwi to an aussie!!)

Millymollymandy pg 352....some interesting reading....not sure if you already know that info, so could be a good choice!.

hedgewitch pg 116.......shouldnt be a problem!.

circlecross pg 120.... :mrgreen:

MKG pg 55......oooh!....must earmark that page for me!!

Old Man Tree pg 399.....should be an interesting read!.

Green Rosie pg 204.....no bees involved!

Oldfella pg 74..... :lol: some of you have really picked some great pages :wink:

9ball pg 23.....we'll need photos of the finished project please!

Annpan pg 278....another interesting page.....good chapter actually!.

eccentric_emma pg 192....nice!!!.


loving what i've seen of the book so far Andy and Dave...will have a proper page by page turn this arvo after chores are done!!.

I could kick things off then by chosing page 13 - again my lucky number (well my birthday anyway).

Can't wait for my book - will see if it's in Waterstones yet.
