Or I could always go and stay with my sister. In Ethiopia, where she now resides, they still use the old calendar and so do not celebrate Christmas until the 7th of January (pity no-one told Bob and Midge before they wrote 'Do they know its Christmas?').

I just recieved a call to say that I have won tickets for a gala screening of 'The Soloist' that includes a Q&A with the director. I also get a copy of the soundtrack and a copy of the book.

I am well pleased with this as I always enjoy hearing what the director has to say about the film. Also, the tickets that I already had for this were for Lee Valley Odeon which is in the middle of nowhere - much better a trip to the West End!

Thanks to the amazing Phunkygal for posting this comp in the first place o/

I just won a DVD by entering the online code from the bag of minstrels that I ate at the cinema last night!
You are supposed to have a 1 in 10 chance of winning so i was quite lucky winning the first time I tried .
Will have to resist the temptation to now go out and b*y a lot more Mars chocolate in an attempt to repeat my success.
