    Sadly, it would go straight on the credit card.

    I won £100 too. I'm going to take my boyfriend to the Manchester Xmas markets because we like to try lots of the food and drink and we spent loads last year. The fried garlic potatoes are amazing.

    I got a surprise cheque for £100 through the post today from the Daily Mirror from their Lotto comp. :) It's going to my MIL to pay back some of the money from the car bill she paid for us as we didn't have the money at the time. :)

    I may be blind, but I could not find where to reply if I do spot one. (The thread linked to is locked). Any chance of a linky?

    i would take my boy out somewhere he has been stuck in the house as everywhere costs money (apart from the park which we go to ALOT)

    The thread will open when the comp starts and when the reindeer and santas are lurking, so next Thursday (19th) at 11am :)
    Back to comping after a 3-year hiatus :j

    Odd one but I would pay for my will.:eek:
    Its needed doing for some time and I am so worried it won't be done in time.
    There would be nothing left over but were there to be, I need to buy 3 Christmas pressies. And that's me sorted.

    Missprice you should wait until next November and get your will drafted under the 'Will Aid' charity scheme:


    You go to a local solicitor involved in the scheme and they'll draft a will for you. You can then (on a voluntary and discretionary basis) make a donation to the charity. It only runs in November, so you've got a bit of time to wait. I think Martin Lewis mentions it in his weekly email, so apologies if you are aware of this already :)
