    Need Watch to complete Swago, but Watch is being a pain in the backside again. 10 mins in to an alleged 4 min set of videos and it cuts out when I've got one left to go.

    I'm a bit late to the SB party, having only joined a week or so ago, but I hope you don't mind me tagging along! I've cashed in my first two amounts and have set myself a small target for the year but won't be nearly as big as some of you in the SB world! I'm going to read the thread in my lunch break as so far I've only dipped in and out.

    Do you know whether we all have the same 1st target?
    Well done on the 131sb for 3 minutes survey.

    Second target varies a lot (mine is 410)

    Thank you for that, my 2nd goal is 260, so as you say they vary a lot.

    Thank you, to you and the others for all your helpful posts, they're much appreciated.
