    Hello
    I'm just catching up on some competitions, as wasn't online yesterday whilst enjoying the sun and thinking about doing some housework.

    Hope everyone is okay and doing well.

    It must be really bad if you have to do housework

    Glasgow is a good ride out for us so must be a LONG way for you

    I hope you are well stocked up on wine before all this starts.

    what've you been up to? That worries me more, especially as you're in control of next years challenge!

    Your trip sounds lovely mmm. What are you going to do all the way up there or just general sightseeing?

    Unfortunately not an X, Y or Z but have had a message today that I've won a Saddler Belt from Ralph Lauren so i've ticked "S" off. Looked it up on their website and its worth £50! Most expensive belt I think my partner has ever owned, his others are from the debenhams or next sales.

    The friends and family of compers have lovely perks, none of the time or effort but they occasionally get rewards! Whats the best prize in terms of appreciation value that everyone else has given to a friend or family member? Think mine would have to be the Samsung galaxy smartphone that I gave to my father at the beginning of the year and the hours of tuition given to him on how to use it
