    answer must be 'down the chimney' surely?
    The forest would be very silent if no birds sang except for the birds that sang the best

    The best kept secret is an open secret.

    Make your own Pot Noodles using a flower pot, sawdust and some old shoe laces. Pour in boiling water, stir then allow to stand for two minutes before taking one mouthful, and throwing away. Just like the real thing!

    8. Entries will only be valid if received during the Daily Promotional Period (as indicated in clause 12), entries received outside of this timeframe this time will not be valid for the Daily Draw in question.

    Clause 12 says day 2 opens 09:00 today and closes 08:55 tomorrow. (as per post #2)
    I would assume any day 2 entries made before 09:00 this morning, would not be valid.

    I've just entered Day 3 - the acknowledgement screen says the questions were accidentally put up early. So tomorrow, we get Day 4 again which mumto2boys has already answered above.

So, in theory, if you entered outside this period, your entry will not count and you should enter again. However, they have made such a pig's ear of the whole thing, who really knows.
    Could be they are trying to rival London buses and have nothing for a few days and then send three at the same time.
