Deliveries 1st December 2014

01-12-2014The Voucher is for a free Dr Oetker pizza Pollo Arrabiata

The book, Coming Home for Christmas, I won from AvonBooksUK on Twitter

The Christmas jumper I won via the Budweiser app

The Kettle and Window vac (and 2 other items which are now wrapped and waiting for Christmas) I purchased via Amazon’s black Friday Sale. I really enjoy this sale each year, I always attack it the same way and have an idea of the things I want to buy, a top price I’m prepared to pay for each of them and a total budget for everything that I want to buy. I did really well this year, I got both these items for less than I was prepared to pay for one of them and I’ve only spent 1/2 of my total budget with only 1 gift left to buy, now I just have to hope everything else I’ve ordered comes in time 😀

Deliveries 13th to 27th September 2014

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 🙂

27a-09-2014The 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!
