Massive stampede over to the competition section now I imagine grin.

That such nice news just in time for Christmas but I am well jel! wink

Its a a 12 plate ford fiesta 8k on clock.
Think its biggest prize yet on mn

i dont even have a mn scarf to wear for the publicity photos.

Just entered a few comps smile thanks for the link.

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Mon 16-Dec-13 23:26:43

I just assumed MN would use the name you won under/your regular posting name for the winners list etc, but if they wont, then yes, makes sense to namechange! We wouldn't want Great Aunt Maude passing out with fright at the Friday Night posts fgrin

I hope you don't have to wait the whole 28 days!!

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

Just goes to show how much the right incentive helps!! fgrin

In terms and conditions there's a bit on this comp that says name wont be used.

In all honesty recent stuff ive posted has been boring.

Cant sleep at mo . Poorly baby girl snoring next to me. Long night!!

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Tue 17-Dec-13 01:31:33

Oh well done, OP, that's wonderful news. grin

FluffyJumper Tue 17-Dec-13 01:54:59

How exciting!

OMGIwonacar Tue 17-Dec-13 07:15:33

Ive not slept at all!

OMGIwonacar Tue 17-Dec-13 19:25:32

the waiting is the worse thing. people are now suggesting its a scam!

BiscuitsAreMyDownfall Tue 17-Dec-13 19:47:00

Who is? You only bloody won it yesterday so there is another 27 days for the PR company to get in touch.

I have won a few comps in my time (only one with MN) and entered many more. Prizes dont turn up over night.

It will come to you. Although it is hard waiting for a prize to come your way I agree.

OMGIwonacar Tue 17-Dec-13 20:05:48

im fairly im patient . Its those around me (not DP) who arent. Now saying hope its not a scam. Takes the shine off it!

BiscuitsAreMyDownfall Tue 17-Dec-13 20:09:12

It wont be, not from Mumsnet.

Scams tend to be on Facebook and they tend to go to people who they happen to know.

Easier said than done I know, but you need to try to forget about it now. I would imagine it will be January before you hear anything now.

The PR company will (most likely) be dealing with lots of other companies competition (there are loads in December)

Try not to mention it to anybody else and just brush the comments away. It will come eventually.

Im impatient too so I can only imagine what it would be like waiting for a car.

OMGIwonacar Tue 17-Dec-13 20:13:44

Youre right. Enjoy xmas,focus on essays and hopefully car Will be here by end Jan!

BiscuitsAreMyDownfall Tue 17-Dec-13 20:30:00

Look at it this way, you're no worse off by not having the car yet. Your life is just the same today as it was last week (I might be making a massive wrong assumption there) and have not lost anything. Just know that it will come one day.

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Tue 17-Dec-13 22:46:10

Justine wouldn't stand for any scamming - you are perfectly safe. I bet it's only people who have no idea about Mumsnet who have said something like that... especially if you have just said 'I won it online'.

Do you know what colour it is?

It is very exciting!!

How has DD been today?

NettleTea Tue 17-Dec-13 23:03:36

woohoo!! well done!! xx

OMGIwonacar Wed 18-Dec-13 08:15:51

Chipping Thats exactly it. Some people just dont get it. Its mumsnet and had message to inbox and email. Not announced in winners corner to protect my Id i assume.

DD not great. Third night of restless sleep.

DS excited.... had to send note in to say its true hes not lying to teacher!

ArgyMargy Wed 18-Dec-13 08:23:15

I won a car on Mumsnet last year. It was pink and had a little piggy sitting in it.
