In January I won a Twitter competition with Border Biscuits (@BorderBiscuits). They were doing a campaign called #GingerJanuary on Twitter where many people were posting various pictures of all things ginger! I was one of their lucky winners of biscuits and this gorgeous bag. Being a fellow ginger/redhead myself I was over the moon and I’m so proud to be a ginger! This bag means a lot to me and I’ll be proud to carry it. Thanks very much Border Biscuits!
I won this foam finger on the 17th February from a Dettol competition and it arrived this week in the post! There were various prizes up for grabs including headphones, iPod s and inflatable guitars and I was lucky enough to win a foam finger! I love it! Cannot wait until the next series of The X factor so I can sit on my sofa with my foam finger cheering along!
It’s not even 10am yet and I have just had a WEM (winning email to non compers!) from my favorite website Goodreads! Great start to the day! The book I won is called A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall. It looks to be an action, fantasy type of book about a retired warrior looking for revenge. This is one of the genres I am least familiar with so I am really looking forward to it arriving and giving it a go.
So as it’s #WorldBookDay I would like to share with you the types of books I like to read, they vary from horror (Stephen King and James Herbert) to history, romance, non-fiction, crime, autobiographies and science fiction. My favorite book is The Stand by Stephen King. I borrowed a copy off my older sister many years ago and I couldn’t put it down. I have never owned my own copy so for Christmas my husband bought it for me. I was so chuffed! Its now on my to-read list (alongside many other books!)
I won a box of Tyrrells Crisps back in January and these turned up this week! There is an assortment of crisps, popcorn, vegetable crisps and a packet of fried beans which I am eager to try! Thanks Tyrrells!
My win today was of a book from Goodreads (which is one of my favourite websites ever!) called The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly. When I saw this competition I really really wanted to win a copy of this book, as I have read many of his other books. Which include Scarecrow, Iceman, Seven Ancient Wonders, Contest and Area 7. Matthew Reilly is a fantastic action, thriller writer. His books are well thought out with great lead characters. So I am well excited to add this book to my collection!
I tried out a couple of instant win competitions today and I won! There is nothing like the feeling of seeing ‘Congratulations’ on the screen right in front of you! They may be only little wins, consisting of 30p off a bottle of Ace laundry cleaner and packet of Heinz tomato seeds, but a win is a win! Its really nice to have these little wins arriving through the post while waiting for ‘The Big One’.
I have been thinking about setting up a blog for ages! I am not very good with computers (except for entering my address for competitions!) but will see how it goes!
I have had a few competition wins this year, but still waiting for that big win! my list this year so far consists of a few different books, my favorite being The Crooked House by Christobel Kent. This book kept me absorbed for hours and had many twists and turns. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a psychological thriller with a dark disturbing feel.
On Friday i won a watch! I am not a watch wearing person but this one is very pretty!
I am not sure if this is the exact one but they are all very lovely!
Today I won a book from goodreads and a small razor from supersavvyme.
I am looking forward to a week off work next week to catch up on some decorating in the hallway, as i have had paint tester patches by the front door for a few weeks! If the weather turns warmer I have got to get out into the garden and start to plan what I want to do with the slope I have for a back garden!
