familiar to many of us of a certain age I'm sure.

Sue's, very good advice this;
]Karelyn's; Words of Wisdom Suelhs650X640

and this page, which was a bit scary, as when it arrived here the little hanging man was hanging out of the side of the CJ, great fun though and the lamb is fleecy. Shaun/Sean lifts up to read; You might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb and an explanation of the proverb.

Sandy's pages stamps that I have myself and have not yet been used, so a bit of a prompt for me here;

It's fabulous, Karelyn. Again lots to read and lovely to know what people grew up with.

I actually had a bit of journalling to go with the Waste not...but felt so guilty at keeping you waiting that I never put it on. Just saying that I never used to understand the saying when it was told to me. I used to think ' if I don't waste it, I won't want it????' just didn't grasp it at all, lol. Now of course, I totally understand.

Loads of advice - I'm sure the CJ turned out to be exactly what you wanted
as it was such a success(IMHO).
These CJs have challenged us in some way each round, and it has been great.
Some I found easier than others, but basically I learnt something from each
and every one of them.

affraid affraid Woah, let me get my own out of the house first, we're hoping for a year or two of peace and a little money before that all starts.
The eldest is 20 now, so I suppose we might be lucky to get away with a year being ourselves before we're grandparents. I wouldn't be surprised if the youngest was the first to produce though.

well i have to come and see this book in person, it is brilliant. I love the sayings.

As a kid we were discouraged from asking for things, 'Those who ask, don't get...

and then if we were sad because someone ate the last apple or biscuit, we were told 'If you don't ask, you don't get' (cos no-one knows you wanted it)

The worst thing to tell a kid 'help yourself, take what you want'
