    Sorry to butt in but who's the newt and what sort of things would they like? I've started to follow the challenge- I'm 16 in (allowing for duplication) but I had a couple of Advents come in January.

    My guess is lingerie, which Is why I enter every lingerie competition going.

    The newt is Moneybots imaginary newt.
    She wears frilly knickers and red lipstick.
    She likes lots of things including bird watching and expensive face creams and products, she enjoys a lot of things but you have to ask Moneybot if you would like to know the true extent of her hobbies.

    I think like most females the Newt would like things pretty, sparkly and probably fattening like chocolate.

    I don't think she is that hard to please, it has even been known for her to say she doesn't like something then be persuaded that maybe should try it

    I won 2 tickets on tuesday to see Hairspary at Southend Theatre via twitter.

    Yesterday I won one of the Tesco Day Out attraction packs via magsdirect.

    I'm now sitting waiting to see what I win today (in between telling students off )

    I was one of the 30,000 people that would have received a pack of seeds, compost disk and growing guide. I will cross off something for the garden as part of my challenge.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.
