    I won an Encyclopedia today (YAY!), so I've decided to be optimistic (in the hope I will get a second win before the end of October) and use it for E since I've been struggling with that letter!


    Good luck everyone

    I note that HoneyBooBoo has won a prize that he/she will donate to a child, in post:

    "I was a runner up in this comp and won a lovely encyclopedia for children. It will be donated to a child in need at Christmas time."

    Think we should tick off E for Encyclopedia?

    I'm able to tick off an October win! I've won a prize described as 20 worth of Bakeware and being from Ikea it turned out to be quite a few items! Several different shaped cake tins, several shape cutters, a cake carrier, spoons etc. so really pleased!

    I won it from a local comp with entry via email and it's my only email win this year, so I've now won at least once from all the different types of entry methods we've been tracking for the challenge (except for Click2Wins booooo)! Almost as pleased with that as with the prize haha


    Good luck with the rest of the month! Advents are nearly upon us! EEK!

    Such a shame but we're still going to spend some quality time together.

    Finally received a prize that I won in July after chasing it up though!

    woopwoop - won 10p from the TCB hummingbird (that'll probably be the only win, but hey, we live in hope)

    Shame about the holiday Ms Dee, at least you can still enjoy the time together and I hope your pet is ok now

    I've won 10p on TCB too I didn't win anything on TCB last time.

    Ms Dee - I found it quite apt you winning "Do the right thing" when this is exactly what you have done sacrificing your holiday for your pet.

    I won 2 books (from different places)

    Took a 6 month break from comping, as it just wasn't fun anymore, and felt like a chore

    Started again about a month ago, only did 50 comps for September month end and won a book Then had another randomly appear this week, think its from a WBD comp.

    I'm not going to fill in the challenge, as a bit pointless after 6 months of no comping, so just going to watch everybody else for the rest of this year.

    Debating whether to attempt advents or not - the past 2 years I've given up after a couple of weeks as they just didn't seem as good as previous years. So thinking of leaving it completely this year.

    Comping just seems to have changed so much over the last couple of years
