Well as events continue to unfold and things become seemingly more unpredictable, I also felt it was important to find a challenge that could be completed without needing to venture outside.

There has been an unusual amount of attention paid to the humble toilet roll this week, a commodity which seems to have experienced unprecedented demand here in the UK! So, on the assumption (correct, hopefully) that we are all sufficiently well-stocked at present, this week I would like to see you do something creative with your loo roll. Creative means different things to different people so I'm open to any interpretation. And you may choose to use single sheets, partial- or full- rolls, or even just an empty tube. How many is entirely up to you but in the interests of ensuring no one is unduly disadvantaged, I would encourage creativity that enables the said sheet(s) to be utilised for their intended purpose after they have been put to service for this challenge - preferably not vice versa though! Blush

The rule and regs. are as follows:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday
4. All uploads must be B&W (or sepia toned)
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
8. Have fun
9. Stay safe and healthy!

Finally, I would like to apologise for the delay in posting this challenge this week. I work in education and, as I'm sure you can imagine, there is a lot happening and a lot to think about at the moment.

I suppose I'd better get in before Eddie and say that I will try to take something other than a bog-standard image...

The house over the road was burgled last night. The only things stolen were two toilet rolls.

First in this week - a sure sign of time to spare!

I'm starting up a new currency. Sheetcoin, or sh*tcoin, whichever suits.

This shortage of bog-rolls is a real bummer.

Gosh! Standards really are going down the pan!

After hearing all these puns I am, of course, expecting great creativity to unfurl by next Wed! 😜

End of the role for us.....

Just as an aside (and seriously)... The supermarkets around here are constantly OOS.
I registered with an office supply company and order some for Wednesday delivery (
Paid a little over the odds with delivery, but at least we're getting some, and yes we ordered responsibly.
