Must ask though - why have you namechanged? I'd rather congratulate the Poster I Know fgrin

MimsyBorogroves Mon 16-Dec-13 22:10:17

OP I know a little how you feel, I got an email earlier saying I won a sample tube of lube!!!! A pair of lucky ducks I say!

Thank you everyone. It couldn't have come at a better time. My unpaid work placement is costing me a fortunate in fuel and this one will be so much more economical.

Its a Ford fiesta. Im still high on the ceiling!

ClausIsTrulyReal I missed the chance of getting a slot with my hairdresser til the new year. Maybe I can dust off my babyliss big hair or do the mumsnet haircut to compensate?!

FortyDoorsToNowhere that's a lovely idea. I will do something for charity although I don't know whats happening with existing car (which we've just spent £400 on which was a struggle!)

MaryMungoAndMidgies Mon 16-Dec-13 22:13:12

Congratulations! fgrin

It'll probably be cheaper to tax and insure too. fwink

Congratulations! What a lovely Christmas present! When do you get it?

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Ive name changed because there will be publicity and I don't want everyone- including friends and family to know my true mumsnet identity

OMGIwonacar Mon 16-Dec-13 22:20:10

Im not sure when its coming. PR company will be in touch within 28 days.

Ive found my driving licence which is a relief (I had been searching for weeks for it for work!)

ViviDeHohohoVoir Mon 16-Dec-13 22:20:46

What a fab Christmas present smile

(I am a little jealous as I have to drive a huge minibus due to my large brood . . . How I would love a small free car!)

BitOfFunWithSanta Mon 16-Dec-13 22:21:56

Wonderful news, congratulations!

<ponders how long it will take for someone to start an "It's Not Fair!" thread...>

ClausIsTrulyReal Mon 16-Dec-13 22:23:22

Yeah, Chipping.

See? She knows what she's doin, mmkay?


OMGIwonacar Mon 16-Dec-13 22:24:27

Ive won things on mumsnet before - a laptop a couple of years ago.

Recently though full time Social work degree and bringing up two little children has left me with little spare time so not entered many competitions for a while. I dont even know why I entered this one.....just happened to see it on Facebook or on home page.

All my cars have been at least 10 years old.

OMGIwonacar Mon 16-Dec-13 22:27:36

ViviDeHohohoVoir we are a family of six at times. Believe me the family car compared to this is going to feel like a tank.

This one has parking sensors!!! (or did I dream it?!)

Claus yes imagine if I had ever participated in a Friday night thread and silver surfer great aunt mabel stumbled across it in a search

FortyDoorsToNowhere Mon 16-Dec-13 22:29:07

I didn't know MN even did competions can someone point me in the direction

JaneEyreTheRedNosedReindeer Mon 16-Dec-13 22:30:27

Fantastic news!
Enjoy fgrin

ViviDeHohohoVoir Mon 16-Dec-13 22:34:38

You deserve it even more if you are a (sometimes) family of six - your own set of wheels to escape!

BitOutOfPractice Mon 16-Dec-13 22:36:39

Awww! Very many congratulations! That's wonderful!

OMGIwonacar Mon 16-Dec-13 22:37:24


Under offers tab. good luck!

EvilRingahBitch Mon 16-Dec-13 22:37:51

Oh that's nice. I entered that compo, but even as I did so I knew that it would be better off going to someone who needed it more, and it's nice that it's a "real" MNer rather than just a comper called Dave12345.

For the benefit of people who didn't see the competition, I don't think it was a brand new car, it's a two year old Fiesta. Still a good win though, and super cheap to tax/park/insure.
