Something For The Weekend - Win Great Escapes with Rowntrees

Hello everyone!  How was your week, any nice wins to report?  Another small win for me since we last spoke of a £20 Amazon voucher from a Twitter party – all about different types of wipes, of all things!  I love winning Amazon vouchers though as they come in so handy for Christmas – this voucher will be going towards the room decorations for our daughters’ bedrooms!  Well, apart from a few small stocking fillers my Christmas present shopping is done – hurrah!  Yes, I know it isn’t even November yet but I love to be organised and get as much done ahead of December as I possibly can.  My husband also loves making sure we get as good a price on everything we are buying as possible, so this means shopping around early and checking the prices everywhere before you commit to buy.  So now I can spend November getting any last minute items for the Christmas Eve box and stockings and really enjoy getting ready for the season!

What is top of your Comping Wish List at the moment?  Some cash, vouchers, a particular gadget or maybe you are dreaming big about winning a car!  For me I am still trying to win a holiday or short break for the family – would love to take the girls to London or New York over Christmas so that’s top of my game plan at the moment.  That being said a holiday or break anywhere would be really well received at the moment, so this weekend I am going to be picking up a few more promotional packs of Rowntrees sweets so I can enter their current competition to win Great Escapes!  Enter the unique code from a packet of Rowntree sweets at and you could be winning one of 85 fantastic family Great Escapes!  You will find out immediately if you are a winner and if you do win you can choose between several Escape options including Luxury Lake & Lodge Stays, Country & Coastal Breaks, Glamping Getaways, Tipis & Treehouses, Farm & Forest Fun Times or Hill Top havens & Hideaways.  Each break is for three nights, up to four people and includes £150 travel expenses and lots of little extra too!  Each promotional code is unique and you can enter as many times as you like until the promotion ends at midnight on 29th February 2016 – so plenty of time to get involved!
