Winning an iPad mini a year ago, in the advent comps had filled me with optimism for my comping year ahead in 2016. I was sure that all my efforts would deliver great prizes, but month by month passed and I had nothing to show for it, not another win all year...nothing, nada, zilch!! Motivation was so low that by November, my comp entries had reduced significantly as my enthusiasm waned. Then suddenly 2 wins within a few weeks, albeit small wins of a Guinness rugby ball and a set of Sharpie pens, but it was just the boost I needed. I attacked the advent competitions with more gusto than I can remember in a long time and although I haven’t won (as yet) any big prizes, I did win a cookery book from Bespoke Hotels (I love their advent comp) and some body wash and lotion from the Green People. Those wins have helped me on ‘my road to comping recovery’ and my enthusiasm for the coming year has once more returned. Thank Goodness!

Hi Denise,
I'm so glad your motivation has returned - you certainly had a run of bad luck in 2016, but put that behind you now and focus on the year ahead!
Well done on your wins - hope 2017 is a winning year for you.
