    For example, if I won something beginning with D in February, would I have to choose whether I tick off 'D' or Feb?
    Or would I complete 'something beginning with D' AND have it count towards the Feb challenge?

    Congrats on your win. Don't forget September's challenge is something made of metal.

    Thank you! Will cross it off of that then as the monthly challenges are always hard to win in the timeframe.

    I'm in for next year even though wins are getting rarer!

    however I have managed to win on the belvoir bagatelle - yay. This was my personal challenge - to win on one of the ongoing dailies eg Belvoir, dorset cereals, postcode etc. I've been entering them everyday, for the past few years, and this is the first time I've won one
