Granola, Stretch Cream and a Picture….

As all compers know, there can be times when you go through a very quiet spell with no wins at all. This has happened to me through most of July. August started off better though with a couple of Twitter wins, a facebook win and a WEM (winning email – these are very rare and when you receive one you…

Win a copy of Atonement by Ian McEwan

It’s been a while since I ran a competition due to troublesome morning sickness and extreme tiredness! So now I am feeling much better since hitting the second trimester, I want to get back to some kind of normality which is blogging and comping. I first read this exact book over 10 years ago, and is one of my favourites,…

Latest Competition Wins

I know it’s been a while since I posted any of my competition wins, but it has been a very slow month. Sometimes this happens, but it makes me even more determined to enter lots more.

The Wishing Chair Collection by Enid Blyton

The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton is my favourite childhood book of all time. I believe I was 8 or 9 when I got it for Christmas and I couldn’t put it down.

Monthly Wins: April

I thought having 24 wins in March was amazing (Monthly Wins: March) but last month was totally extraordinary! I have worked so hard over the last month entering well over 1000 competitions, writing lots of blog posts, catching up on reading and working full time as well. It has been very hard but very rewarding. So my total haul of…

A Recipe Holder, The Pointless Book and a bottle of Pepsi!

While I was off work last week I had more time to comp and therefore won a few more bits than usual. I do believe in putting in lots of effort entering comps will eventually bring rewards. My little belief is that comping is 90% effort and 10% luck! I say it all to my friends who think I’m lucky,…
