Hello Kitty Win is here :)

received my prize of a Hello Kitty Tent, Chair and Sleeping Bag yesterday and it’s a proper tent!  I thought it was only a childs play tent I was entering in for!  It sleeps 3 people in there!

I was going to sell it or give it to someone else when I first saw it as I thought it was a 1 man/child tent and was thinking ‘no way am I having my daughter in that on her own’, but now I think we’ll keep it 😀  Buy another 2-3 man tent and hubby can stay in there with our son and I’ll be in with our daughter.

Don’t have a car at the moment, so it would be ideal to go on the train or coach to somewhere as these tents are so light and are in a small bag!

Better start looking for another one 🙂  Would be easier if I had a car though.

Another Win :)

Just received an email to inform me that I’ve won a Hello Kitty Competition.

My daughter LOVES Hello Kitty so she’s so happy about this.  It includes

  • Hello Kitty Tent
  • Hello Kitty Sleeping Bag
  • Hello Kitty fold away chair

Can take up to 40 days to receive but that’s fine.  Woo hoo 🙂

Best Chocolate ever is…

…the one that is free 🙂

Won a bar of dark chocolate, and it was so lovely.  Forgotten what it was called though lol.  Never heard of it before, but it was PROPER dark chocolate.  Something like 80% (Or was it 70% ?)

Won a Spa Voucher, Received Two!

I won a competition a few months ago for a Spa voucher, and it took ages to receive, but I finally did and for some reason I got TWO!
Now, most people would say ‘keep it’ including my husband, but I’m very strong with Karma.  Part of me wants to keep it of course, but instead I phone up the company to ask about it.

I was told by a lovely lady that if I received two, then I obviously won two of them and to keep them.  Well, I’m not arguing lol.

I’m keeping one for me and my husband but I don’t want both, and it was too much hassle to ask for a money alternative, so I’ve asked if I can exchange them for other vouchers instead (It’s a company who have vouchers for all different types of things like Spa’s, holidays, exciting hobbies etc).
I’m allowed to, and so I have decided to exchange it for 3 things which total up to the same amount as the original voucher.
I looked hard and found ideal presents for my parents anniversary, my sister’s birthday and one of my best friends birthday.  Feels a bit rude that I’ve used this win towards presents for others, but all 3 know how much we’re struggling at the moment and they’ll LOVE what I’ve got in store for them so I don’t think they’ll care lol.

Just waiting for them to come through now : )

It’s official, I’m in love with a vacuum cleaner!

So, a few weeks a go I found out that I had won a competition and my prize was the AEG Ultrasilencer Vacuum Cleaner worth £209.

AEG Ultra Silencer AUS 3966P

It’s a fantastic Hoover so far!  It’s so silent!  I mean, you can hear the suction when it’s on MAX, but when it’s on MIN suction, you can’t hear the hoover!  OK, a teeny bit, but you can happily watch your TV and you wouldn’t hear it.  In fact, I forgot to turn it off as I walked into another room and couldn’t hear it.

It’s a bagged cleaner though, and I’m used to the bagless ones, so I need to find out how much new ones cost.  It came with 2 so I’m ok at the moment.

The suction is so strong that I worried that my carpet was going to come off the stairs lol.  You can adjust the strength of it which is good.

I highly advise in getting one of these, but saying that, it’s only been 2 days lol.

Kids love it too lol.

Comping Babe :)

I LOVE entering competitions 🙂  I’ve only been doing them for about 2 months and I’ve won some lovely things 🙂

The latest one was 45g Kenco Coffee (My favourite coffee), Terry’s Chocolate Egg and 2 creme eggs.  That was for today.

Yesterday I received a Hamper of organic baking goods from Steenbergs, which added up to be worth £50!  This is what it includes –

  • 100 ml Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 100 ml Almond Extract
  • 100 ml Rose Water
  • 100 ml Organic Orange Flower Water
  • 100 ml Organic Peppermint Extract
  • Rose Sugar
  • Vanilla Sugar
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Lemon Sugar
  • Lavender Sugar
  • Organic Chocolate Drops
  • Dark Chocolate Strands
  • Rainbow Baking Strands
  • Pink & White marshmallows
  • Silver Balls
  • Lemon & Orange Jelly Slices

So as you can imagine, that has made me very happy indeed 🙂

I’ve also received an email last week that I have received a AEG Ultra Silencer OKO Vacuum Cleaner which is worth £200.

Here are my May/June Winnings

  • The Fairy Tale Wedding Book
  • Cbeebies Magazine
  • Wahanda Cleanser and Toner
  • £199 Spa Voucher
  • Now That’s What I Call Music 78

It’s surprising how addictive it is.  I haven’t done many comps since the beginning of June to be honest, so I really should start it up again.
