    8) T-A-B do not show that you have previously entered a competition (after you have exited your current session) and there is nothing that stops you from entering again. The terms state "we will accept only one entry per registered user. If more than one entry for the same issue is received, we will accept the first entry only". This means you will not be disqualified if you accidently enter a second time, and if you are unsure whether or not you have entered, or whether your entry has been accepted, it is OK to enter the comp to be certain.
    Please be a responsible pet owner & spay/neuter
    your pets,
    so many unwanted pets & not enough homes for them all sadly.

    Win 100 - Answer is - CHANGE BEFORE YOU HAVE TO ( Page 3 )

    Win 3000 - Answer is - VALOUR ( Page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 16/01 ( 100 ) and 23/01 ( 3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 16/01 as the closing date for both competitions ( hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone

    Win 750 - Answer is - COOK ISLANDS

    This is a wordsearch where the leftover letters give the answer. The theme was types of warm clothing, and the answer was somewhere you're unlikely to need them.

    I hope nobody minds the bumping. In my opinion, this is exceptional and well worth the bumps. Apologies to any who disagree, but I want to add my congrats to everyone else's.

    Please don't worry if you post later than usual (or whatever). You have the best excuse ever
