Ewwwwww excuse me while I get the vacuum out and get rid of all these cobwebs
Right, that’s better, now to hopefully get back into the swing of things again 😀 We’ve had a few deliveries since we’ve moved into the new house, I forgot to take pictures of the homemovers box we were sent by Nationwide but it was really handy (milk, loo rolls, tea, coffee, washing up liquid, mugs, spoons, that sort of thing) and the iTunes voucher that I won from Tropicana Juices over on Twitter but I did remember the last 2 things, well, one of them only arrived this morning so that reminded me to do this again!lol
I received these bars from Jordans after requesting to try their new crunchier bars, I have to say right now they are totally yummy and I finally have something I can dunk in a cuppa without it going soggy and falling into my drink 😀
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!
Ohhh it’s been a few days since I posted on here hasn’t it!lol Well, the postman just delivered this little lot:
The little blue and red tins are from SteamCream the blue is called Earth and the red is Wraparound, I was lucky enough to win these in a competition on their Facebook page and it’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while so look out for a review of those!
although you cant see it very well the necklace is the Queen of Hearts playing card pendant I won from Urban Male Mens Jewellery, also on Facebook, and that’s something for Dave for when he goes away in 10 days-ish!
All of the other items have been sent to me by a friend, Ali. Most were a complete surprise, I was expecting the coffee and the perfume sample but not the rest and it really has put a silly grin on my face this afternoon. Most of us are having a rough few weeks wins-wise and I admit today it’s getting to me (having a bit of a cold/flu-type thing as well doesn’t help either) and so this really has meant a lot to me. Thank you xx
Todays post gave me a bit of concern, when I opened the M&S voucher from Here for a day I thought I’d opened one of my cards a bit early!
So on to what I received, The pomegreat vouchers were sent to me by the lovely Cathy, will have to get that at the weekend and the super sticky post-its were sent to me as i requested a sample to try, they look good so I can put up more notes now 😀
The M&S voucher is from Here for a Day, as I said, and it’s come from me entering a caption competition they held on their Facebook page and are worth liking on there!
The DVD has come from Heat on Facebook and was won alongside a tanning kit which hasn’t arrived yet
