    I won on Prima mag ( getting confused with the posts above,wrote mug at first). But must have missed that comp as never entered it. I won 10 pairs of bamboo socks and they were shown as blue so have put them under number 29

    I've had a WEM to say I've won tickets to a local country fair / steam extravaganza, so crossing off tickets too.

    Won 2 tickets for Cricket at the Kia Oval (Surrey v Glamorgan) next week from TalkSport.

    We do both love cricket - he supports Middlesex and I support Essex but we are going anyway. I know many of you will not understand this but T20 cricket can actually be very exciting.

    Don't think it meets any of the challenges though.

    Hello
    How is everyone?
    How is everyone doing with the challenge?
    Have you won more or less than you have expected or wanted this year?

    I'm okay, doing okay with the challenges, just won a magazine that I'm not sure if it is too old for my nephew and maybe too young for my nieces, will have a proper look at it when it arrives, if not a Postpal is welcome to have it. I've won around average for me, despite the fact I haven't been comping much, so chuffed to pieces that I've won around 60 prizes this year, even if some of them are low value.

    Sending love, hugs and positive vibes to everyone!
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    I'm quite happy with my wins. I had an amazing January and have been meeting my own personal challenge of at least one prize per month overall. Even if some months have been just a bottle of Ribena or something. The tickets I 'won' have not turned up yet and the show is on this weekend, so a bit disappointed with that.

    Sending lucky dust to you all.

    I've had a WEM to say I've won a board game.

    It's based on the TV programme 'Would I Lie to You?' so I'm counting this as Film/TV/game merchandise.

    It's quiet on here at the moment... is everyone off on a nice holiday? Or are we all watching the tumbleweeds as we wait for wins?

    Yay a win!

    Email from Woman's Own - Gruffalo bundle (looks like a trunki, books, toiletries and gardening kit etc)

    My kids all grown up so it will be donated to charity - either PostPals or a local young lad.

    Not doing too bad on the magazine dailies this year (don't want to put the mockers on it though )

    Well done those that have won.
    I've only won a child's crafty magazine this month, which I will likely send to a Postpal, still waiting on it to arrive.

    I've not been on holiday but visited my nephew up north, which was lovely, back home now though, having a day full of comping and putting more effort in as the tumbleweeds pass me by. Before heading back to work soon.
