  • Candle Olympics - Tealight Marathon - Burn Night! :)

    Well, it's been a long wait, but the moment is very nearly upon us. It's Burn Night for the Tealight Marathon!!

    Nine entries were received from across the country and in about two hours (when my kids are safely tucked up in bed) the burning will commence.

    I've pre-warned neighbours that there may be an odd concoction of smells emanating from my house tonight and have the fire brigade on standby. Funnily enough both of these measures are also taken on nights when it's the other half's turn to cook dinner. But don't tell her I said that!

    Before I display pictures of the runners and riders, I would like to mention a few things....

    • Only one entrant had a safety label attached. It's a good job I'm familiar with the dos and don'ts of candle burning eh?
    • Only one envelope received had a lipstick kiss on the back. I'm unsure whether this was put there by the chandler herself or my mad singing postman.
    • As mentioned in another thread, only one envelope received contained something approaching a bribe. All should become clear on who the offender was in the pictures below.
    • Not one envelope contained a Curly Wurly along with the tealight. And boy do I enjoy a Curly Wurly....


    Any of these candles could win so the best of luck to you all! I will post some updates as the burning goes on, and on, and on, and... oh you get the idea


    Right, without further ado, here are pics of the entrants, just to whet your appetite.

      OOPS! My bad! It would appear the forum only allows a maximum of 9 attachments per post and as someone took up two of that allowance with theirs, a couple were not attached.

      Apologies to holehouse and Wicky! Pics of yours are now attached

      Oh, I also said in my initial post that 9 had been received. It was in fact 10.

                Excited! Thanks for taking the time to organise and set up Spencer hope staying up 'til the end isn't too much of a struggle. All looking good. Well done for getting this far - it means we've tested, tested and tested our candles (and our patience) and although we may have nearly we haven't yet given up = a success no matter where our entries come in this competition.
                After that photo Marion it's to be hoped you don't win although would certainly make all the worthwhile!
                Good luck all.

                    Damn I am going out to see my son in a concert tonight. Hope they are still burning when I get back. Could be a long night for you Spencer!

                    You could have a sing song (camp fire style) "keep the candle burning...."

                          I'm sure it will be a very long night for me, but it will be worth it.

                          As for camp fire sing songs... I have a bottle or two chilling in the fridge and they will be keeping me company this evening so who knows...
