    I'm here, and happy to report that mom and baby Flora are doing well. Been spending time with them rather than comping, so I'm not expecting any wins in the near future

    As for taking rabbits on picnics, I'm sure they would enjoy nibbling on fresh grass, (but don't forget you've got to win one first, unless of course.........)

    And anyway, who's calling me mature?

    Question... I've had my first wem of the year (hooray)... letting me know I've won an advent competition.

    This still counts as a 2018 win, right..?

    They are a grand lot though
    I was just saying to Mrs Bot the other day this is the fourth year of the compers challenge and we have never had a cross word on our threads

    I dread to even ask what this lot do on a weekend, they will all be having picnics with the rabbits soon, I blame Nana

    Well done on your win

    One of the prizes I mentioned I had an email about previously arrived today. A lovely bouquet of flowers. I have been comping on and off for over 30 years and I don't think I have ever won flowers before. Crossing off number 54.

    Congrats to all winners. This has been my best month for ages. I hope those of you who haven't won anything yet get a nice win soon.

    As for weekend goings-on, I'm hoping to have a family get-together with all five granddaughters, should be fun.

    No wins here so far - but I need to catch up with the board this weekend and do more C2Ws.
    A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realise how blessed you are.
