Hi, you wrote to me a while back saying i had won a Oui Oui bag and asking for my address, which i sent you twice, but i didn't get any reply from you and never recieved my bag!

I'm sorry to write on this thread but thought it would be a better way of getting a message to you as i didnt get any reply to my messages before.

I was really excited about my bag but it looks like it was a hoax now. Unless you know different?

Heebychick hmm

I think there are better ways of communicating your disappointment at not receiving your items. MN only organise the comps, they don't send the items out. I am sure they will follow it up if they are aware there is a problem and you email them off the board.

Heebychick I can assure you it wasn't a hoax - the comp host has been on holiday and that's why it's taken longer than it should. The bags have actually been sent out this week, please do drop me an email on if you haven't had yours by the end of next week. I do only work part time, which is the reason my response may sometimes be delayed but I will always chase

Thanks Catherine, and thank to *leaping lizzard* although i'm sorry you felt you had to chastise me, i had infact emailed MN 3 times off the board and didn;t recieve a reply. Also seeing as i haven't won anything before i didn't know who sent the prizes out, of course one would assume that if MN run the comp then it is up to MN to ensure the prizes go out etc.

So thanks again but on this occasion it seems i was right to catch Catherine's attention this way and she has kindly cleared the matter up. (i would also draw your attention to my previous message, had you of read it you would of seen that i had in fact mentioned i had emailed MN before)

Kind of you to jump to their defense however i'm not sure they needed it.

oh bogg off your high horse. It's a free gift.

I think you used the words "hoax" and thought MN was behind the "hoax" that is how it read to me

rather nasty infact

Tee hee. Bless you.

And for the record Catherine i didn't mean hoax as in MN, why on earth would i? i meant in hotmail it's easy to get a hoax mixed up with a 'normal' message.

Anyhow matter solved, thanks ever so Catherine, have a nice weekend.
