Elsa, I believe it relates to the background and contrast, colour saturation and so on.

Warts, blackheads, wrinkles and pimples will not be retouched wink

I can't afford the bribe frown

I was always told Danny that pimples and blackheads should never be touch or retouched if you have touched them already...it spreads the infection....big_laughbig_laugh

 

Go 'au naturel' and let your natural charm shine through....although I do agree with losing the beard...they can be scary....runawayrunaway

Oh Danny, I dread that sort of thing but I probably will have to do something similar if I am going to act as a consultant at all. Help!!!!!!!runaway

Anyway back to the achievements. I'm going to cheat here as I haven't been on for ages, sorry about that! We eventually got our Christmas decorations up on Christmas day due to a power cut on Christmas Eve. More importantly my youngest got engaged to his lovely girlfriend and we have been discussing how to keep the cost of weddings down cheers Mind you, he said they aren't getting married for a couple of years doh Having managed to dispatch our only egg laying hen before Christmas, we finally have another egg layer amongst our chickens and got our first egg since that rather unfortunate event cheers Our winter wonderland suffered a bit over this last week, it was -15C on Christmas Eve and then warmed up to hovering up and down around 0C for a few days and so we have slick ice instead of nice crunchy snow, although it is still a white landscape. I think that kind of sums up our Christmas, a rather quiet one as our youngsters are pre-occupied with babies on the way or uni work. Who knows whether what happens next year though cheers

We went to visit Mikes mum yesterday, she woke up briefly this time, but she doesn't look great, the nurses said she's having days where she refuses to eat, they are getting fortisip down her, but that's about it. I took some pictures at Mike's request, but I did wonder if its because he thinks he might not see her again. Very sad.
On a brighter note, we have a busy couple of days coming up, I'm cooking the staters for tonight's party at a friends, nothing extravagant, chinesey sort of nibbles, they are doing the main, and others are bringing the dessert and another the cheeses. Then tomorrow I'm doing a big family late lunch, got a large piece of top rump from sainsburys yesterday at half price, not done it before, any ideas.
I know these are not achievements yet, but TA isn't around, so hopefully no spork, hope she's ok.

They look like achievements to me, so no Sporking.  Actually, I can't find it at the moment (I think Elsa broke it) so you might have a few more days of grace...

I'll try that again!
