    Never sure about entering to win the tap things - did it include installation costs?
    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!!!!

    July is turning into a pretty awful month for me comp wise, haven't managed to enter a single comp yet We had a couple of days away, and between that and my son being a nightmare at bedtime the moment and not sleeping till 9-10 at night (he's not coping very well with the end of the school year) I've completed lost my comping mojo

    So hardly suprisingly I haven't had any wins for about 6 weeks

    I need something I can enter for a July win Anybody know of any easy ones to help me get back on track?

    Won a picnic hamper the other day and they included some treats with it and in the bag was some fruit pastilles, also received a fit bit blaze in plum that i won last month so definitely crossing the something fruity challenge off this time.

    Comping seems quiet and a bit weird this week, guessing every body is in end of the year (school year) mode. I need to win some name label things as Jake starts school this September

    Hey y'all

    I also have to join the 'sick child' club? Just had my LO suffering through 3 days of high temp and vomming No nightly comping for me on Tues & Wed as was tending to her needs. Thankfully she's recovered today and has filled her belly with her fave foods after 2 days of not being able to eat, bless her. I made her day though because I brought her back a £5 unicorn hobby horse from The Works - it was meant to be for her 5th birthday next month, but I thought she needed a nice treat after her illness

    she just received a green envelope with her name on the front.... her eyes lit up and the biggest smile.she was so excited! inside were some moshi monster trading cards,from this comp http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5669948&highlight=moshi+cards

    500 runners up so some others might be lucky

    Does that mean I can count this as a July win??!
