    Wow - amazing welcome back prize! 15th Jun 17 at 2:06 AM
    Well, after not comping for well over a year after it becoming a bit of an obsession, I decided I would enter the odd comp here and there, but just for prizes that I really wanted and that were really (in my opinion) worth winning. I have probably only spent about 2 hours entering comps and then I broke the screen on my laptop so it has been out of action for a few days. Got the screen fixed today and guess what? Yup, I have won an amazing week in a villa in Italy. Flights are not included, but I knew that when I entered and I will probably drive down anyway. I am absolutely thrilled with the prize.

    I have searched and searched the boards for the original comp post, but I can't find it anywhere. I am so grateful to whoever posted it though. No idea when I am going to take the trip or if I will take friends or family, but I am so excited.

    Well done!
    Have an amazing time, it sounds great

    The reason you can't find the original comp post on here is because it was removed. If you google "win Italian villa" then the top 2 results should both be MSE listings for the comp. It was first posted on 25th May, but removed and then it was posted about in Compers Chat Corner a week ago as well, which was also removed. I can't get the google cache, but if you/someone can, then you may be able to see why it was removed....self promotion maybe?

    I googled it too and found that the link had been removed and did wonder why. Whatever the reason, I am not complaining, I am chuffed to bits x
