    The newt has considered the toothbrush and has decided as it's a "posh" one it can be claimed. Nobody try for a poundland one though ...

    (Yes a know the newt is a bit of a snob...)
    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!!!!

    It sounds like you had a lovely holiday

    Ear infections were the bane of my life when my boys were little

    Well done on your wins

    Thank you Holiday was lovely, just what we needed to relax before term starts. Ear infection knocked me for six though |i'll be a lot motre sympathetic next time one of the kids gets one, I never realised how painful they were!

    I've had a rubbish week at work. My job has been put at risk. The whole process will be dragged out and I will have to apply for other jobs in the organisation and I won't find out until the end of October if I have a job. If I don't get one, I will have lots of time to do the advents in between visits to the job centre and applying for new jobs.

    I've been back at work and loosing my comping mojo so only entering very few, if any. Although it should teach me for not clearing my emails out, I had a win from the beginning of September that I have until today to claim, I only noticed it as I was notified by Twitter and decided to check my Twitter today.
    So spending the day clearing up the emails.

    I would hate that too. Can you just take a close up of the brush and your teeth, or the brush in your hand?

    Just popping in as have had a win of note for the first time in a while.

    Tickets to a secret show for Amnesty International including the band Idlewild (claiming the letter I after confirming it's ok with the newtness).

    Unfortunately it's on a Wednesday in Edinburgh so I can't go but Mr Bot and mini Bot can.

    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!!!!

    hope you had a good time away mansey - hope it wasn't as 'eventful' as the last caravan outing.

    All quiet here at last. Son passed his driving test - I've been taking him driving every day for the past month, so that worked - and now he's back at uni.
    Had builders in and now they're gone too - hurrah

    Postie delivered a pile of thriller/crime books - no idea what comp it was from. Does the newt like a good thriller?
    Big thanks to all who post

    Two very small wins from yesterday. A bottle of Lucozade from the 'Made to move ' app comp (worth £1.50).
    A massive £3.60 from euromillions this is my share of the win as I went halves on a ticket with the hubby.
    I can only update money value so £5.10 to add to that.
