The watch signals the start of our Christmas shopping, Dave ordered it for me as my last daytime watch broke recently and we found this one at a good price on Amazon’s lightning deals. I admit, it’s on my wrist right now, I love it and it’s going to be hard to hand it over when he gets home from work tonight but at least it wont be for long only 40 days and a few hours and I can put it back 😀
I know I’ve been lazy the last few weeks with my deliveries posts but my excuse is that Dave has been off work and we’ve been quite busy so I’ve just not had time. Anyway, here are the things which have arrived in that time and everything will get back to normal again now 🙂
The Oxo Good Grips trivet set I won from Liz Loves blog which is a great blog I have been following for years now, she’s running a few competitions at the moment to celebrate her blog’s 5th birthday. I wonder if any of you will spot (and enter) the one which currently has more prizes than entrants!
The cute Furby I won from the competition on the Argos Facebook page when they were giving away 3000 of them!
The Vichy samples I received via their giveaway and competition to win full-sized samples here
I’m not sure where the Garnier sample has come from but it sounds good so I shall be trying that soon
The models Own goodies I won from the promotion on the Echo Falls Facebook page
The ‘How to photograph your horse’ box I received through winning a competition on one of the Click-to-win sites
The Thornton’s cake mix was sent to me to try via their Facebook page, I duly made it up, decorated it and sent in my picture of it to enter the Thornton’s bake-off competition 🙂
The Avery samples have come via a link in an email from them
Land, Never say goodbye, The twilight hour and Sheila were all won through Goodreads Firstreads promotions
The Angel delight I won via their Facebook page
I’m not 100% sure where the Nivea pot has come from but it’s always useful to have some of this in my bag so it’s very appreciated!
One thing to note is that I tried something out; I used Amazon marketplace to get one of the books, it was listed as ‘Used – Very Good’ but to me, it’s at most in good condition. No pages appear missing but they’re not perfect and the spine has been broken in many places. I guess we all have our own opinions with books and to me this one has been quite badly treated but at least now I know that books purchased this way are worth the saving, but I don’t think I will go any lower on the scale than I did this time, I dread to think what state they would be in!
I won this The Great Gatsby Merchandise pack from Empire Cinemas on Twitter 🙂
This is my latest Amazon order. The books both continue sets I’ve been reading a while now and the games are to replace ones I traded in a couple of years ago but really miss playing plus one other that’s been on my wish list for a while. I got a great price on them all by getting them from Amazon Warehouse all were listed as ‘Used – Like new’ and I have to say they all have their books and work great, boxes are fine too. The only thing missing is the card to get the Nintendo club points but considering each game was half price of less, I’m not that fussed!lol
