Two prizes today, which pinged in within a few minutes of each other: £50 from The Sun and some Pantene shampoo and conditioner from Victoria.

Used to be an avid comper, then got out of the habit.
Entered the odd few in December, and won a CD, a herb growing kit, tea with Santa and a 4* spa break.
Maybe I should get back into it. :)

Well done Kate (or soon-to-become Kate).

An impressive list, especially a 4* spa break!

You should definitely get back into it! Especially when there’s a lot of advent competitions going on.

What was my biggest win? A Vauxhall Corsa in the 90's. I used to be a huge competition fan and would win about 3 a week, ( not cars I hasten to add! ) mainly theatre show tickets from the local paper - or cinema tickets. What have I won in the last 10 years, probably zero - give or take a few toiletries from SuperSavvyMe. I also did Take A Break for years and got nothing at all. I'm going to give comps a go again. If someone said I'd won a grain of sand from Blackpool Beach - I'd be pleased, I don't want big wins - I'm pleased with the simple stuff.

Oops, I did it again.

This isn't really winning anything but I have just got another accidental freebie from Amazon. I bought a book, only £6.91, and after it arrived I decided that I didn't want it so I went through the returns procedure. At the end Amazon said that my refund had gone through and that I did not have to return the book. So I have actually got something for nothing again :D

I wonder what other goods they don't want back? Maybe we can all make a list of what we got from Amazon for nothing and if there is anything on it that others want they can buy it and get a refund and keep it, lol :D:eek::D.

I'm going to be naughty. I need some more face cream so I have just ordered some. I will wait till it arrives then cancel the order as I did before in all innocence. Only this time, not so innocent ;). This is just an experiment you understand. Purely in the interest of science and my purse. I will report back with the results of my experiment in a few days.

We once ordered a £80 side cabinet from John Lewis which was a total nightmare to build so I gave up. Got in touch to return it and they told us they don’t want it back and just refunded the money!

Hello. I'm still here lurking around :)
Hello.
I know I have been gone for a while and many of you will be wondering why I've been so quiet.

Some of you are aware, due to circumstances of what has been going on, but now it's time to let everyone know.

Back at the end of September I was diagnosed with metaplastic breast cancer. I've had such a whirlwind that I haven't really been able to take it all in. I was told I would need surgery, then Chemo and the
