Christmas is coming

Christmas is coming

Christmas is coming, sounds much better than Winter is coming, especially after we had our first really frosty morning yesterday. And Christmas means Advent Competitions, which will start next week. We've been planning our research and while it's madness for compers, for us the first few days of December are manic, trying to find and get as many competitions on the database as possible.

So I love comps where I'm going to be able to celebrate normal by inviting family and friends to something special...

As much as I think we would all love to not hear about it, Lockdown 2 is coming and although they have said it's only until the start of December, they have also admitted they don't actually know for sure. So, here's an interesting comp from TGIF, book a table online for between 23rd November and 10th December to win a MINI Electric car. With the lockdown, it's probably not much good going for anything before the 2nd December
