    Have you ever won a prize to this day you've no idea where it or who it is from?
    Obviously it would be a parcel delivery.

    Yep several times, sometimes a search on here can narrow it down to a couple of places but other times it's a complete mystery x

    Yes, I won an entry into a 'get locked in a room and get out by solving puzzles' game, with a night in a B&B. Stuff of nightmares! I would never have entered for that! Not even for the night in the B&B as there was no dinner included. No idea how I came to win it (I asked them to redraw), the only thing I could imagine is that it might have been one in a long list of prizes in Take a Break or Puzzler which I just entered without reading it!

    Few years ago had a cookery book turn up with someone else's name and my address.

    I'd entered a number of competitions for that item and three of them had finished around the same time.

    There was nothing included to know which one it was from.

    Yes, many times. Not the big prizes, they are mostly small items.
    Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing

    Not that I'm winning loads these days, but yea, I get a few, mainly smaller bits like books and DVDs. When I first started comping on here I had a Blu-ray player delivered with no clue where it came from!
    Last week it was the range of Turmerlicious drinks. I remember entering as I take turmeric capsules, but could I remember or find the comp on here?!
    Worse things will have happened in the world today...
