    Great job - did you mention previously that you would only be able to cross off one challenge per prize or per day, so for example, you could not cross off a yellow candle that you won on your birthday that smells nice and you were going to use in your bathroom in five different places on the challenge? If this is correct, then perhaps add it to the 'rules'.

    Mansey I love your extra challenge -I will deffo take that one on board! I do try to pass as much as I can onto charity via raffles & donations etc.

    Keep up the good work and good luck to all.

    So I just had a quick look at Post Pals and got very emotional (there by the Grace of God) and have decided to go all out to win Disney stuff as that seems a very popular request on there.

    We don't know how fortunate we are

    You won't be doing any challenges if you don't add your copied and pasted post to the new Challenge thread

    Yes, on 2 conditions

    1) You don't tell anyone, cos you were meant to have your name down by the end of November

    2) You go straight to the new 2018 Challenge thread straight away an copy and paste the challenges onto you own post.

    Tis just as well I am busy (my fridge freezer has given up and my kitchen is floating) or I would have to kick erses

    I know you have put in the post pals one Mansey but I have charity which is very close to my heart. So could a challenge be added so we can win an item or money to send to our favourite charity.

    I think there is already a challenge to donate an item to charity (apart from the Post Pals one)

    After checking I can't find it I think it was lucinads challenge to win a "selfless prize that you could give to someone outside your family or a charity"

    I have missed it off

    I am happy for people to donate to any charity of their choice
