    I have found the document with the template but not the one with the list of boring sentences. Any help?

    Hi. I also have the problem of just having the template. The details above say 24 pages but the document only had three.

      Hi Rachel,
      Thanks for your comment. The Microsoft Word version is our editable version so only has three pages. However, the PDF has 24 pages. Please let us know if you have any further issues with this resource. Many thanks!
