    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've won a spoon!

    Do you think it might be less than £1?

    I just had a lovely surprise...
    The post lady just bought me some beautiful Kawaii Fabrics, I've crossed off K, with A,Q,X,Z now left. I've still yet to work out the price of it but will add it later.


    UPDATE: I've added £25 to the total.
    Any Queen or X-men merchandise, I'm there! For Q and X

    I just won a £50.00 charity donation to a local charity. The charity shop where I help recently suffered an arson attack so it will help make up for a shortfall in funds. I posted a sob story but it was genuine!

    A bottle of Lee Kum Kee Chilli Garlic Sauce + Wok Along cookbook; not quite sure which comp produced that, could have been a couple, but nice to have it arrive unexpectedly in the post.

    V for voucher might be a good one to cross off.

    I had a Burts Bees lipstick turn up in the post. There was a competition where they were giving away 100 every 8 hours, so I guess it was from that one. Hopefully there will be lots more MSE winners. I am crossing off 'B' for this one.
