First ever advent win

Thanks to @hertzyabazas for posting the competition! I've never won anything on an advent until now. 

This came in the post today after I won on the Callebaut advent about a week ago - hadn't had any confirmation email etc in case anyone else is waiting too.

The blanket is a nice surprise as I was just expecting chocolate - it's very soft and fleece lined too, so this will be my new snuggly sofa binge-watch partner! There's also 4 bags of their chocolate (dark, milk, caramel white, and ruby) which I think is intended to be used in cooking but will probably not make it that far...

Make £2023 in 2023 total £2146.18/£2023

2023 comp wins: £1.60 TCB, collagen + make up bundle, £15 book token, signed book, outdoor cinema tickets + £200 spending money, candle bundle
