    Unless anything turns up unannounced this month, nothing.

    Entered lots every day, but also did as much of the main board (prizes that appealed) as well.

    Nothing on the advents but to be honest, I gave up after a week as I just couldn't find the time! I won a Super Ski Jump game that arrived on Christmas Eve though so not an entirely fruitless month!
