BUT, the gates are open again until noon UK time today.
As this is the second time recently I've made the same mistake - in future weeks the gates will close at 11am on a Saturday, so it's just an hour earlier but at least there won't be any mistakes I hope. It's the ams and pms and twelve o'clocks wot's causing the problems!
And, as I write the snippets post on a Saturday morning it would also mean I won't be sitting waiting until noon before doing the prize draw. Whoopee, means I get to begin doing household things an hour earlier - oh deep, deep joy :(
