    I've just claimed one too! I'll count this one as my April win plus K for Kit & G for Growing.

    See this is what happens when your Newt is so soft Mrs Bot, folks take advantage of your kindness and cross off anything from The Challenge.

    (I didn't say this but I think she drinks wine, I think her name is a bit of a hint If she wins another voucher goodness knows what she will buy, think of my poor old heart )

    BTW where is Chrissie?
    She is waaaay too quiet, that must mean trouble

    Claimed one of the dorset kits thanks for posting, not crossing anything off for it as it's a freebie not a comp win lolol.

    My OH has got the comping bug now too, he's had two wins this week. An expensive Muvi 4k action cam worth £240 and a driving experience which he's thrilled about. This week I've won...... a kids book lol.

    Nope, crossed off Dorset Teas kit and the Easter Egg hunt kit - otherwise would have nothing to show for April as well as March

    But have won a six pack of walkers crisps on the paypacket promotion so also crossed off W for Walkers

    I have a question for the ladies, gentlemen, newts and any other animals of this forum. Back in February, I joined Weightwatchers and they had an offer where if you lost 10lb in 8 weeks, you could claim a £40 Very voucher. I have managed to lose said 10lb Yay! So have claimed my voucher. Do you think I can claim this as a win? Would love to be able to choose this as my effort competition, but don't want to if this is not really considered a competition, as anyone that lost said 10lb would 'win' one.

    Incidentally, I didn't win any Easter eggs this year, so have failed that mini challenge miserably, but it is probably just as well, as it would not have helped with the diet LOL.

    I do seem to remember that if I didn't win one, the forfeit was to give Mansey or The Newt an Easter Egg, but having popped to Asda and bought one, I see that the forum rules don't allow me to ask for addresses of forum members, so I can't post it. Perhaps I shall have to scoff it myself and ruin the diet!

    First off well done on your weight loss. The newt has thought long and hard on this (or she might be a bit constipated, her thinking face and need a poo face are very similar). Unfortunately it has to be a no. The £40 was more of a reward or an incentive for or towards the weight loss goal not strictly a competition win. Also you presumably had to pay to join ergo pay to enter and we all know that's not the MSE way.

    Bother on the Easter egg hadn't thought how we were going to collect on that one ....
    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!!!!

    There's no help for you Missus

    I was going to totally disagree with the Newt as you made an amazing "effort" and won a prize for it

    Then she made the point of having to pay weekly fees to attend Weight Watchers, I am not sure how much these are but I am sure they will be more than MSE allows us to pay to enter to win a prize

    Dogs rule and Newts drool

    BTW the Grand Design tickets are not for the weekend only during the week which is really annoying.

    As it's a link and a code would I be able to offer to people on here?

    Shame about Weightwatchers 'win' not counting, but I wouldn't dare argue with either Mansey or The Newt. So will just have to console myself by eating the egg I cannot send to you.
