How wrong was l!! 
This challenge is the ideal theme

  7. Try ing again for the fourth time . Connection is really bad at the moment. Well remember sitting in front of the fire with sis seeing who could see a picture first in the coals. Remember the old toasting forks too. Toast never tasted as good as in front of the fire. Hugs mrs s.
