    Ah yes the newt's preferences. Basically you need to persuade the newt that whatever you have won is something she would like. So gin and chocolate easy; 147 piece tool kit harder but if you can make it sound like she would want it you can count it.

    I love the idea of prizes being ritually offered to The Newt.

    I think this should become a formal process conducted with due ceremony...

    Totally agree. The newt has got an outfit that she could wear for it. Think Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra.

    These c2ws are a pain in the bottom..not sure if to hold off to February challenge or just keep going..what if I win something in Jan..will I ever forgive myself for not starting in Feb..the horror! Still about 10% of the 1000th done.

    Have a good week all..MY Comping fairies wings have burned off, she flew to close to the sun I think , so she's had a trip to hospital , hence why she hasn't been round these parts for a while. Get well fairy and come back soon.

    a lot of the c2w finish end jan through to mid Feb - if you leave off entering till too late a lot will finish in March,so too late for challenge . I'm working on the assumption that if I get a win in Jan (haha) it won't arrive till Feb so it's still a Feb win and if I get a WEM I could save opening it till Feb, so again a Feb win

    cough cough - hope the newt isn't reading this
    Big thanks to all who post

    At this moment in time I could kill my sister, my parcel hasn`t turned up
    I`ve got to get ready for work and that means jumping in the shower and potientally missing it. I hope he comes along when I am at work, if not I fear a long drought of no wins coming
