She chose two tangles - one with 3 letters, Dex, and one with 5 letters, Bunzo - for the challenge this week and this should really have been my clue. 3 and 5 - Thirty Five. I'll get to the point in a mo.
It's been a really excessively hot week here in southern Spain. Isn't it always, I hear you ask. Well, no, it's not. I am in a town that is at about 1000 metres above sea level and the winters and the nights here can get jolly chilly. On Tuesday, I left home for work and the temperature was 7 degrees C (about 44 degrees F) and when I set off to come home in the early afternoon, it was a staggering 37 degrees C (almost 99 degrees F). This is not normal. It doesn't help choosing what to wear at the beginning of the day either.
My point is, I think the heat got to me this week. I read the Diva's weekly post and drew myself a string in preparation. Then my brain scrabbled the Square One Focus tangle for this week - which is Cubine - with Dex. Not that Cubine has 3 letters. But it's sort of square. And cubed. Oh well - I did Bunzo with Cubine instead of with Dex.
After I realised my mistake, I did another tile using the correct tangles, but you know what, I prefer Bunzo with Cubine. So this is my offering to Laura for her birthday. It's not a 35 though, it's a 56. I do apologise. And what do you know: that will be my age this year. Makes you dippy but gives you a nice tangle as compensation! Happy Birthday Laura.
(My Cubine challenge for Square One was this one just so you know I'm not duplicating or recycling my tiles!)
