    Oooh I've had a little flurry of wins!

    Another bottle of gin, a journal & posh pen, and then another posh journal all within a couple of days.

    While I wait for the postie, I shall ponder which challenges to allocate them to. I may have to get creative with the stationary!

    Now I don't normally moan about my prizes but........

    I won a 'Meaty' pack with Peperami on twitter last week and it turned up yesterday..... 2 small single sticks of Peperami (one has the price 79p on it! so £ 1.58 in total) Sent in a small jiffy bag by 1st class letter post (lucky it did't get pulled up for being too fat for letter post )

    Think about 20 won so I wasn't expecting much but do wonder if it really is worth it.

    Not really moaning - I'm more amused than anything

    Just had an email from Cosmopolitan to say I have won a £ 100 voucher in the dailies. Didn't say what it was for though Guess I will have to be patient.

    Yes I wondered if it could be that one - depends how quick they draw it - sometimes it's ages. I like posters but not sure if I want to spend that much on them! Have just bought a few canvases for the home.

    Going to be having a few days off comping next week to go camping, so I've been updating my challenges.

    Any ideas for a notebook? I've already had an offering accepted by The Newt.
    The other journal and posh pen I've put under challenge 39- items for the home, on the basis that I've always got notebooks lying around the house & by my bed in case I'm struck with any sudden great ideas!

    My £ 100 voucher from Cosmopolitan is indeed for the poster store - and I have to spend it all in one go!

    Was bit worried about spending that much but didn't realise that you can have canvasses and other things as well. Sure daughter will help me spend it (not asking son coz his GF will say yes and their flat is already full of tat )

    Any ideas if I can cross anything off the list? It's exactly £100 so I am presuming vouchers of £100+ would be out? I know I'm pushing it lol...... oooh just realised one of the posters I do want is a yellow pattern! Get in!

    I was wondering where to put them but have used that one. Some of them are blue, could it go under that one?
