Well done Sharifa, for submitting the first challenge entry of 2013 :clap: :clap: :clap:

Sorry guys, I have just gone through these with my other half to get an outsiders view, and have realised that some of these are very difficult :redface: 8/10 for this challenge will be an excellent score! So lets see what you can muster up.


Nobody said it had to be easy It's a challenge after all

If I can equal Sharifas score I will be very happy

Congratulations on being the first to submit your answers to the first challenge for 2013 Sharifa, and well done! I haven't even started yet, will definitely make an attempt later this morning! :hmz:

Challenge #2/2013 will be posted by Pumbaa on Friday, 18 January 2013! :dance: :dance:

I have just submitted my answers for challenge #1/2013 to AdrianP. I expect a result very close to zero, which means I might not make it known here! :redface:

Since my score exceeded zero or 1/10, I will share it with you .... 4/10 for me for #1/2013! :dance: :dance:

Not that bad Umtali1! As you say, one has to start somewhere! :thumbs_up:

Huntsman, if I didn't change my "Honey Badger" to a bird, I also would have had 3, but fortunately that raised my score with 1 point! :lol: And as you have said, it is a lot more than the guys who didn't enter! :thumbs_up:

Sharifa, you're a star! So far you have the highest score, unless the others don't post here! It's their choice, I only take those who post, because I am very curious to know other 'mites' scores! :tongue:

4/10 for my first effort. I'm so pleased that I've dislocated my shoulder from patting myself on the back :hands:

Welcome to all the new mites. You must start somewhere, that's the only way you learn. My first challenge, when I start was also 3. Just hang on you will see how you improve.

7/10 for 1/13
