    Sorry I've not been around lately and haven't updated my meagre wins in a while, due to real life getting in the way

    BUT, I just had to share this with you. Still can't quite believe it, but I had a call this morning from Gerberit to say I'd won a £2,500 spend on bathroom stuff from this post,

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5690840&highlight=ekbb

    So that's a few more of the challenges to be ticked off

    2 CBE's have just arrived they are quite small, not that the ladies will mind

    I will add them to my Christmas (very small) pile of things to wrap

    Not sure if I won those and the milk bottle glasses this month or last month, I will need to check as I'm not sure if I have a win this month or not

    Basically When people searched your twitter username you didn’t show up but people’s tweets etc mentioning you did show up. Whilst it’s inconvenient not showing up in twitter search it’s not as big a deal as some people make it out to be (I think some people just like to have something to moan about or blame for lack of wins) most competition providers would search a hash tag or through their replies etc for a winner which you should show up on, a promoter is unlikely to say ooh let’s search and see if mmmwine has entered our comp so the fact searching your name brings nothing up shouldn’t cause you an issue.

    Had you got the type of filtering where when you tweet people they get no notification and it doesn’t show up to them as an alert then you have an issue x
    You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

    I don't think I have posted this already, apologies if I have. I have won £25 with my premium bond. now you may think so what and I know £25 isn't exactly life changing. I was given the £1 bond by my Nana for my first birthday and this is my first win. You can probably tell from the fact it's a £1 bond that I have had this for sometime. I am now going to spend this on gin and chocolate as is my want with windfalls. I will raise a glass to Nana and ask that the next win doesn't take quite as long or I might be past gin drinking by then ...

    I have £25 of Premium Bonds that were bought for me by by Nana when I was just a wee bairn, I used to get 25p pocket money from my Nana and 25p pocket money from my Dad, and every Saturday morning I used to tootle down to the village post office with red post office saving book and pay it in. Many months later when it was £25 I took it out and bought Premium bonds with it, which I still have.

    I sometimes see the odd thing about Premium Bonds and remember them, but these are always for the big pay outs so how do you check the smaller ones?
