Wish lists

For as long as I’ve been comping there have always been posts asking what people would most like to win. I’ve never listed the things out loud but I have a list of things I really would love to win, luckily for me over the past year and a bit I’ve managed to win a few of them.

I finally managed both a BBQ and Xbox 360 last summer after a very long time of trying. Then at Christmas I won a PS3 to replace our old one which had become quite noisy with the fan coming on and staying on all the time. This year I won a designer bag which I adore and just this last week I won some straighteners which I have been trying to win for years now, Kym actually took pity on me a while ago and sent me a pair as she really seemed to have the magic touch where they were concerned, I just kept entering and knowing I’d not win but this time I finally did!

The strange bit about me and wish lists comes when Dave is involved. I’ve always asked him if there was something he’d like me to win. The first time he said a TV, a couple of months later I won some vouchers which were just enough to get him a really nice 40″ one. Then he said an iPod, and when I asked what colour he said “red” OMG I thought, no chance of that, well, I won a nano from a competition and when it came through, yep, it was a red one! Next he asked for cash, I won £25, then vouchers, £750 of Sainsburys came in! Can you see the pattern here? Each time he asks me to win something it happens given a little time, yes I know it’s probably because of the number of competitions I enter and that he isn’t very precise (apart from with the iPod) on what he asks for but it’s still a little weird don’t you think?

So right now I have a couple of things still on my all time wish list but I think I’ll keep them to me, those of you who know me will know what they are but so far I’ve had some good luck by not writing them down, I think I’ll keep it that way just incase!

Wins in Pictures July 2011

I love the look and feel of my “Wins in Pictures” page but I think it’s getting a bit long now so I’ve made the decision to change it into being a post I make each month with the pictures from the deliveries I receive all collated into one post for easier viewing.

Unlike the daily posts, which will continue, this will just be a page of photo’s. If you’d like to find out more about one or more of the pictures, then hover over them to get the date they relate to and you will be able to find out what the item is and where it has come from by looking at my deliveries post from that date.

Deliveries 30th July 2011

And so we come to the last deliveries for July. It’s been a really amazing month for me, not just for wins I’ve had for myself and our family but for those that I’ve given to friends I’ve made through this wonderful hobby, I’m really pleased I could help those that I have.

For some reason the people behind the Splenda UK Facebook page have sent me 2 lots of goodies for my tea party, Oh well, I can now make 2 different types of tea 🙂

The straighteners are the ones I won from the BaByliss PRO UK Facebook page this week

The Vampirates books I’ve won from Primary Times 🙂

The hand hygiene gel has come from the Lemsip Facebook page

The Fudge has come from the Fudge Kitchen – Bath Facebook page, I received slices of: Icy Vanilla Coconut, Caramel Swirl, Chocolate Orange and Lemon Meringue 😀

Wins in Pictures May & June 2011

I love the look and feel of my “Wins in Pictures” page but I think it’s getting a bit long now so I’ve made the decision to change it into being a post I make each month with the pictures from the deliveries I receive all collated into one post for easier viewing.

Unlike the daily posts, which will continue, this will just be a page of photo’s. If you’d like to find out more about one or more of the pictures, then hover over them to get the date they relate to and you will be able to find out what the item is and where it has come from by looking at my deliveries post from that date.

I’m using this post to bridge the gap from my page to the next post so this one will have both May and June’s pictures on it.
