    It's a purchase one Mansey and all the codes are unique. Think it must be on here somewhere but I've only seen it from a wrapper

    And a March win! Not leaving it to the last day this time go me and the newt.

    Won £100 love2shop vouchers on the Home energy competition. As I has to take photographs I am going to claim that as an effort one.

    Another small win for me, one I had been hoping to win! Some Chalkola markers including metallic ones - going to have fun with them!

    Will cross off C or M for markers, I can't remember which letters I have left

    I might have to buy some - not totally sure why but I feel the need.

    Well done, everyone. What a clever lot you are


    I'm gutted to say that I'm bowing out of this challenge. I feel bad, especially as after Mansey chased me up I said I'd stay.


    We're nearly halfway through March and I still haven't won a solitary prize this whole year to date. That's with entering everything I can, I seem to spend every minute of my free time finding and entering comps. I used to win so much more without even trying hard IYKWIM


    I'm going to take a total break from comping, there's so much more I could usefully do with my time


    I'll possibly pop in from time to time to see how you are all doing (and depress myself even more). I wish you all the very best of luck


    Sorry to have let you down, Mansey xxx

    I know this isn't the right place for a whinge but anyways. I couldn't help but notice on the entry page for this competition

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5617626

    there are some well know board members who posted blog comments on the 7th March but the competition wasn't posted on the board until today by the one and only Laks.

    I would usually be fussed but they are also posters who have made comments about sharing and who cares how competitions are posted as long as they are posted. The newt says she is disappointed.
