The Sugar Bowl Challenge



Have any of you been to Glastonbury? I've only seen pictures on the telly, and I'm jolly glad! Camping in the rain and mud was something I did as a kid (wherever my family camped the rain always followed us) Been there, done that.

This little chappie, though, is on stage at Glastonbury! There's brown mud, green grass (the growing kind, you naughty people, not the wacky kind!) and blue rain.

But there are star-shaped floodlights picking him out, and he's about to be famous!

Ok, ok, enough storytelling! This cute chap is a Sugar Nellie and the sketch (which does look a wee bit like a stage, you gotta admit!) is this week's Sugar Bowl Challenge with the option of 'One For The Boys.'

It came along at the right moment, because my daughter wants a card to send to a friend, and the sketch was pretty inspiring!

ok, time to see if the stew's cooked. Have a good evening, and thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
