Pendleside Hospice Dingbats
Couldn't remember how to ASK a question but got help via AnswerBank! Thank you! Having bought this quiz again (because I support the Hospice before anyone asks!) I resisted the temptation to attempt it until the season of goodwill had passed. (I have NEVER got it all right!) I can see no logic in some of the dingbats even some of the answers I have eventually arrived at. For example, I am flummoxed by Q45 Lily Rose Tulip Daffodil in a vertical list but Rose has two thick black lines through it (others are bulbs?); Q48 MATCHSIRS (anagram of Christmas but ...mixed up? muddled up? concused? I am now!) Nothing seems to fit the theme of "festive phrases, Christmas films, Christmas novels, titles of (or lyrics from) a Christmas carol or song, festive foods or whatever" stipulated by the compiler apart from the word. Any 'pointers' please?
What a lovely person dannyk13 - though I have to correct you on a couple of things - 'girl' I definitely am not - and haven't been for many decades - and I can't even agree to 'poor'. When I luckily won one of the prizes in an earlier Hospice Christmas quiz set by someone more on my 'wave length' (or age?) I donated it straight back to the Hospice - WITH gift aid. It's just the personal satisfaction of achieving something - even "with a little help from my friends".
Bless you too mamyalynne. I've just had a quick glance and seen a couple of answers which I had got but had wracked my brains (and memory!) for days AND nights about so will have a good look when I've sorted out and put some washing in. I always get a number of the dingbats wrong but I promise whatever I next win throughout this season - even if its only raffles - I'll donate to the Hospice or one of the shops.
