The Winner Takes It All

If the loser really is standing small, as my compatriots once informed us, then I am quite tiny.

Since about a year back, I have entered absolutely every competition I have come across, theorising that sooner or later, Lady Luck would find me.

I have gone into close combat for a safari in Tanzania. I have fought it out for a case of fine wines. I have filled out those endless questionnaires where people actually seem to believe that you have fully formed opinions on different brands of teabags, only becasue a Japanese teapot was up for grabs.

Then I won a biography of P.G. Wodehouse. It is possible that I was the only competitor.

Things could have been worse, I suppose. I could have won a year's supply of toothpaste in an online competition I entered in a moment of madness. Still - I am worried. Does this mean that I have fulfilled my Winning Competitions Quota? Will I never win anything again?

I think you will...just hang in there - I've won two radio contests in a two month period...I'm not the luckiest girl, but I have a lot of faith!

Thanks, Catalina - this gives me new hope for that self-powered head-torch I have been battling for.
