No worries Mrs A, good to know you're working on it.

I did say to folk, do it in one go or make several posts, and I will leave it open over Christmas.

so wasn't expecting the usual posting as on Friday night.

I'm sure more will join in over the coming week.

Google Translate gave the following translation.

"Thank you very much but I thought you are saying you do not mark. I did not answer much".


In short, I am NOT marking, there are too many questions to keep track of, also it's Christmas

and I don't need the hastle!!!!!! LOL Very Happy

I will post the answers later in the week.
