Joy....... Elaine from Spain and Ann from Sussex drew for the title and Deb n Air came second (or is that third?) You have saved yourself some money by not entering, as it was £20 per entry! This figure was arrived at by using the GR price testing system......(see further up!) Merry

LOL Kat - what really annoy's me is when the apostrophe's are put in unnecessarily.


Heather Report 7 Jul 2006 23:33

O.C. The comment re banning peeps with two brains was directed at you (I may need an archaic english will transcribed one day). BTW, I was going to offer you a booby prize - the Daily Mail is offering free linguaphone teach yourself French in 7 days discs.


Heather Report 7 Jul 2006 23:35

Glen, I have noted your formation of TWATS - I noticed you waited til after I was obviously absent due to a red alert trip wire situation. It isnt big and it isnt clever. You may revel in your independence now but when you need a new bit of fresh tinsel or a couple of fresh turnips, who you gonna turn to, eh?


Michael Report 8 Jul 2006 00:19

Sadly I missed the competition while it was 'live' so I will have to settle for an unofficial late entry: Marbles.

Er, no good Michael, I already did that and deleted it in favour of my should have won entry, not having been told that one could enter as many times as one wished. OC
