    What an apt prize: Marks and Spencer -> Marks and Sparks, my name is Mark, my nickname is sparks (kind of) and I love biscuits!
    Thanks guys!
    Oh and I've just been handed an envelope from VeryPC containing veggie sweets! Could this day get any better?

    I have a sense of deja vu coming on. I will win biscuits and you will win an Xbone or something...

    I've got to teach a Year 6 to use 2D Primary tomorrow so I thought I'd better practise using it first. Legitimate use of school time, producing a beautiful decoration for the VeryPC Christmas tree AND earning myself a bonus entry into MADvent all in one fell swoop. I am the king of time management.

    By the way, I not actually tried to assemble it but I think it's right. Fold along all of the lines and cut out the hatched parallelograms. You could also do with two little pieces of thin ribbon to tie around the ends but I can't find the button to attach them.

    Edit: Sorry to @VeryPC_Tom_D and @VeryPC_Wayne but I only had space for 12 pics.

    I'm sure they'll forgive you.

    There are other members of the team who have not yet made it to the online gallery too, so you don't need to feel too bad, it isn't just those two that won't get pulled this Christmas.

    Ha, Yes I do indeed know which one you mean. Nope not arrived then, I've just been and asked. Post always seems to take longer the shorter distance it has to go.

    Either that or the Carrier pigeon has decided to have a rest on our lovely Green Roof which is very nice at the moment (webcams coming soon) and has just left my calendar up there.
