    Well this work larks sucks - back after the holiday and frankly I could happily not go in tomorrow...

    Apart from anything else have had no time to enter anything!
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    I've just had 3 wins on Topcashback in less than 5 minutes

    Usually I do it everyday - 1 random and then 1 daily clue - and I win nothing (or occasionally 20p or 10p), but have accidentally used a different tactic this time - did a few last week, but then nothing for a few days, then just now I did 1 random followed by the daily clues from the last few days and I got items for all of them (no PDEs!).

    First I got a bikini, then a flip flop (50p win), then another bikini (20p win), then a beach ball (10p win) and then an ice cream (no win).

    Well done on the win. I have been lax and didn't put my wins for last month. I won a dog bowl and treat tin worth £40 and today won a celebrity Angel comp for the back pain machine £125. That will be very useful

    I have my first win of September a Monu Facial Wash worth £17.95. I won this I am sure from some blog comp. I am sure if you won you could choose which item you received. I seem to remember a link on twitter to the blog, where you entered your details. This prize arrived yesterday, no slip enclosed and the address was hand written.

    I can mark off September and can update the total, but I have used all of my other letters.

    Finally I can join in again! Chocolate buttons was a pretty boring win (only a 30g bag!) BUT it meant I got my first Twitter win this year for the challenge so chuffed with that.
    GOAL - win 72 prizes in 2016.
    SO FAR - 29!

    Myself and stefalfie won the crazy prices facial wash too, we won from an Instagram comp, it was probably on other social medias too, I think they were giving away 1,000 full sized face washes.

    Yeah mine was in a big Jiffy Bag and rolled like a fat sausage and hand written too.
