Hello again compers! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? A couple of wins here since last time – a deodorant stick from the Soft & Gentle facebook instant, and my first ever Instagram win! I won a lovely set of Sylvanian Families figures and accessories - my eldest daughter loves these, so she will be extremely chuffed when Santa brings these this year. What is the weather like where you are?

Hello again compers! How has your week been, any nice wins to report? Just two wins here so far – a Heat & Hug koala from the Cushelle on-pack promotion and a lovely Ultimate Christmas Liz Earle Hamper from a tie break comp on Facebook – rather chuffed with that one! Bonfire night and Halloween have been and gone now, and in my book that means it is fair game to start getting excited about Christmas! The fe
Hello again compers! Well, here we are in November - that came around quick didn’t it! Seems like only 5 minutes ago the kids were starting back at school, and here we are the other side of the first half term! I feel like I am properly into my comping groove now, and getting myself nicely organised for the impending comp-fest that is December and the advents! Do you enter the advent competitions, or do you stick to yo
Hello again compers! How has your week been, any nice wins to report? A few more bits and pieces here including a £10 ASOS voucher from the Witch Switch to Witch comp and a Fimo kids play set from theschoolrun.com, a bnice pressie to stash away for my girls for Christmas. Today is the end of the month, and is a good time to reflect on what we have won and focus on the month ahead. I keep saying to my husband “oh I must try and win…” and his reply is alw
Hello again compers! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? A few bits here including a Lauren Pope (of TOWIE “fame”) jumper in a twitter comp, a lunchbox and some stationery from the Tesco / Capri Sun text comp, a Spode spoon rest from twitter, a Kilner Jar in a Facebook comp and a £50 Debenhams voucher in an instant win comp. I have won a few stationery prizes this month, so don’t think we will ever be short of a pen in our house! I am going to save some of the nicest bits back, and use them as stocking fillers for my girls, who both love craft items.
Hello again compers! How was your week, any nice wins to report? Nothing new here, but we are approaching the end of the month now, so hopeful that wins might start to come in. Do you have some creative comps on your list to complete over the weekend, maybe from my last blog post? We will be having a trial run of some pumpkin carving I think, as there are some great comps around that require a creative pumpkin carving photo. After that it is onwards
Hello again compers! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? A few little bits here including a Stand up to Cancer t-shirt in a twitter comp and a surprise Witch Blemish Stick turning up in the post – all handy bits! What is the weather like where you are now? We are having another warm spell here, it doesn’t really feel like autumn much at all. Have even held off buying the eldest’s winter coat, as it doesn’t feel like she will get much use
Hello again compers! How was your week, any nice wins to report? Nothing new here since last time, but still thoroughly enjoying being back in the comping game properly. I have a few creative photo and video comps lined up for this weekend – always a good activity to get the children and husband involved in! I have decided that one of my comping missions, besides winning all the bits and bobs already on my Wish List, is to try and win a trip to Lapland
Hello again compers! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? A few bits and bobs here including a £100 Smiggle stationery bundle from Closer, some Jimmy Choo perfume from The Fragrance Shop and a £20 Currys voucher from a blog twitter party. Loving being back in my comping stride now, and getting very excited about the Christmas comping opportunities coming up. How about you, ar
Hello again compers! How was your week, any nice wins to report? Still going quite slow here, but am ever hopeful that it is the calm before the storm! I did win a nice prize on Monday though - a BodyBlade Classic fitness device and DVD, from QVC on Twitter - worth about £60 so not too shabby.
Hello again compers! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? Only two wins for me so far this month, but did win some nice Jimmy Choo “Stars” perfume from The Perfume shop, which looks lovely! Autumn has definitely arrived here on the Island though – this week has been the first week my girls haven’t changed into just t-shirts and shorts after school, and the long sleeved pyjamas
Hello again compers! Well, October has crept up on us hasn’t it! It only seems like yesterday that I was preparing everything for the Back to School rush, and sending both my children off to start school again. Both my girls are now full time at school, freeing me up to concentrate on work and comping again – hurrah! Having said that, wins for September have been a bit sparse – just 13 w
Hello again compers! How is your week going - any nice wins to report? Nothing here, but I think a large proportion of the comps I have entered recently end at the end of month. Did you do any Back to School comps this year? As my youngest started school for the first time this year, I took lots of lovely photos of her in her pristine uniform, and have entered them in what seems to be an endless string of photo comps for Back to School. I am hoping that I might win one of them with her – she is a redhead and tiny, so hopefully that will all go in her favour to
Hello again compers! How is your week going - any nice wins to report? Two small wins for me on Friday (a Forever Friends keyring on twitter, and an Aloe Vera gel from Holland & Barrett on Facebook), but nothing since. Not far off the end of month comps now though, so having some nice comping sessions in the evenings. Has the weather been cooler where you are this week? It has felt decidedly fresher on the morning school runs here, but to be honest I am quite pleased. I am enjoying the cooler evenings too – so much more cosy to snuggle up on the sofa on a
Hello again compers! How was your week? Any nice wins to report? Still pretty quiet here, as not ramped up to full comping speed yet. My youngest started reception this week, as you know, and today is her first full day – hurrah! Did your little ones start or go back to school this week? Any tears? All gone quite smooth here so far, no tears just two very tired children (and parents, come to think of it)! I can cope with that though, just means lots of lovely quiet evenings to be spent comping – hurrah!
Hello again compers! How was your weekend? Get up to anything exciting? It was the last weekend before our youngest started school this week, so we had a quiet one. You know the drill – duvet days, lots of snacks, favourite foods (nachos and homemade pizzas in our case), and getting the girls ready for their first full week at school – exciting times! It did mean I was fortunate enough to actually get some comping in though – amazing what you can get done on an iPad with Home Alone in the background and a tin of Cadbury Roses at your side! Any wins to report?
Hello again compers! Well, how was your first week back at school or work? Any tears, from adults or children? My eldest started back at school last week (Year 4 now, big girl), and my youngest started “big school” Reception class on Monday – today will be her first full day, so we shall see how she is when I pick her up at 3pm! I am guessing I may have 2 very tired children on my hands this afternoon! I think the first few weeks of September are meant to be spent just relaxing and recovering from a busy summer. Whether you have children at home or not, chan
Hello again compers! Well, here we are in September, the summer holidays are over, and normality has resumed – well it is starting to normalise in this house, slowly. My eldest went back to school today, starting in Year 4. My youngest is starting Reception, but won’t go until Monday next week, so she has a few more days grace yet. I am starting to get back into comping a little more, now that the evenings aren’t exclusively spent out of doors, and early nights are the order of the day in the week again. August wasn’t too bad for wins – 16 prizes in the end, m
