    My Cook Italia hamper arrived today- it came in a proper basket so I'm pleased Can I put that towards my facebook win?

    I also picked up some perfume that I won last month... it's very very shiny but I feel i'd be cheating if I snuck it into this months challenge... perhaps I'll play it safe and cross off 17. something pleasant smelling..

    I don't want to anger The Newt.

    The newt doesn't get angry she gets "disappointed"

    Ah OK I misread that

    Some of the regular readers of this challenge may recall that in October 2017 I had a WEM for some fishing equipment. I am pleased to report that five months and dozens of emails later, I have finally received my prize
