            In a 'Slumdog Millionaire' way, I happen to be lucky and know 15 😳 only because I'm a Daddy's Girl and used to watch TV with him on many Sundays in winter, others I grew up with and they fell well for me - plus 1 for (I think) spelling #19 correctly, again only because my friend's son plays one...

                    We think 16 ( there are two of us! ) I can spell number 19 because we had a specialist music teacher at school. I had to write how much they had enjoyed learning this chuffing instrument on every chuffing school report. I had to check the spelling every time ! 🤣


                      I reckon around 12 + 6 guesses with the jury out on the spelling until results day


                        lets see richard plus 1 = 8. ok havent had a go yet but not even sure ive got that.
