    When I win anything that might even be suitable for Christmas I'll add it.

    At the moment wins have become extremely rare.

    I have won £50 LTS vouchers which I planned on keeping for Christmas food shopping from Iceland, but my DH has sidelined them and said we should spend them on stuff we need from Boots (such as blades, shampoo, face wash etc) to save money on weekly shop So it looks like I will not be keeping them for Christmas after all which brings me to a big fat nothing for the big day!!

    I have been trying to win things for Christmas for years and have failed miserably so far. I cannot seem to win anything for my kids or books, but I will keep trying.

    So fare I have:
    A box of Krispy Kremes (If the voucher will still be valid. Still waiting for it to arrive.) - A treat for one of the festive days. If I don't use it for my Birthday before that.
