    On a separate note, I see that February's challenge is to win a C2W prize. Better get those entries in now folks if you want to cross that one off. I have entered a measly 134 C2W comps so far this year. I had better up my efforts I think.

    January is off to a good start. I have won a 'milk monster' It is battery operated, so that crosses off another challenge for me.

    yay - i can tick off January challenge postie has brought me one of those clothes brushes for removing pet fur.

    I'm also having a go at the C2W for February, although only about 250 entries so far (I keep losing track when entering - how does everyone else keep track?).

    just to add, I stand in awe at lucinads ability to get the challenges to fit a win and not even stretching them that far either (although it's still early in the year, so lots to choose from). I think that ability may be needed quite a bit this year
    Big thanks to all who post

    Well done on the January Challenge

    I was just talking to Mrs Wine about counting the C2Ws yesterday on FB. I have a free counter on my phone, I just tap the screen each time I enter a comp, Mrs Wine is drawing 5 bar gates on a notebook, both work

    Yes, tis shocking how good lucinad is at bending/breaking rules

    I bookmark the ones I want to - mostly ones that are only on a couple of sites and enter the same ones every day, so I count from my bookmarks.

    So for example, I have this is my bookmarks at the moment.

    Happy Saturday from me and the Newt.

    Is it just me or is it a bit of a dry january for prizes? I thought we had a lot more holiday ones usually.

    Another way to do the click to wins is ...

    Got to which ever magazine your working on and right click each comp you want to enter, and open in a new tab when you have 15/20 comps on your toolbar go back to the first comp and click enter do that all the way through all the comps you have opened and by the time you get to the last one the first ones will have completed it's ads then you just count them as you are closing them down

    Good evening Mrs Bot and the Newt

    When you said Dry January I put my brandy and coke down

    I thought the ladies were doing very well for wins in such a short time, not me though

    Did the Newt read last nights posts?

    What browser are you using pet?

    Then I can get you a link, it takes seconds to download and sits in the top right corner of your computer somethings need you to unpause ad blocker which is just a click then put it back on again
