Winning Weekends (24 Jan) 2

Happy Friday compers and bloggers, Each Friday I post this for you to share lovely blog competitions you have found. Linky it up 😉 I don’t really have rules for this but this is for UK competitions please, and I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “25/2 win your favourite perfume – blogtitle” rather than “my friends awesomely named blog”. End dates are great because if it’s got a long date it might be worth adding to next weekends as well and it’s also good to know what the prize is before trying to win it. I will try to add a few competitions to the linky myself each week before it goes live. The linky opens each Friday, and used to close each Monday but I’m experimenting and leaving it open all week. #WinningWeekends means that bloggers can quickly link up their […]


Winning Weekends (29 Nov-2 December)

Happy Friday compers and bloggers, I’m not here this week….. I’m in GERMANY. I’ve gone on holiday with my Mum, Christmas markets. Can you believe it’s 1st December on Sunday? Please linky up blog competitions below, they can be your own blog comps, or just ones you have seen online and thought “that’s awesome, but not for me”. Maybe a friend is having a blog giveaway/contest for boys things, but your kiddos are girls. Perhaps it’s a Star Wars Comp and you are a devoted Trekkie? Linky it up 😉 I don’t really have rules for this but this is for UK competitions please, and I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “12/12 Win your favourite sweets – blogtitle” rather than “my friends awesomely named blog”. End dates are great because if it’s got a long date it might be worth adding to next […]


Winning Weekends (8-11 November)

Happy Friday compers and bloggers, it’s that time of the week again, Yay! Please linky up blog competitions below, they can be your own blog comps, or just ones you have seen online and thought “that’s awesome, but not for me”. Maybe a friend is having a blog giveaway/contest for sweets, but you’re on that new diet? Maybe it’s a gardening prize and you aren’t at all green fingered?? Linky it up 😉 I don’t really have rules for this but this is for UK competitions please, and I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “12/12 Win your favourite sweets – blogtitle” rather than “my friends awesomely named blog”.

Winning Weekends

Well it’s in to it’s third week already. Please linky up some nice blog competitions below, they can be your own blog comps, or just ones you fancy sharing. I don’t really have rules for this but I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “12/12 Win your favourite sweets – blogname” rather than “my friends awesomely named blog”. I, as before, will try to add a few competitions to the linky myself. Hopefully when (if) this linky takes off properly it will mean that bloggers can quickly link up their posts, and maybe grab a badge to show support, and compers can find a few nice competitions they might have missed really simply. Even if you aren’t a “comper” as such, you might just fancy a quick entry on a few competitions if you are feeling lucky today. Go on, share the love […]


Slightly overdue… Australia 2

A month ago I landed back in Blighty after going to the land down under. Well I think I will honestly struggle to get across how much I loved it, and how I truly miss the place after such a fleeting visit. I soooooooo want to go back, I wish I could. On 4th November I took off from Heathrow, after a minor strop about Qantas seating plans…. my second holiday via plane, and they’d put me alone… away from my friend. Cue me, stamping, crying and talking to myself. I’m not a brat, but was stressful having the ITV DayBreak cameras there, emotions were getting out of hand. Qantas had little choice, I was stood ON my seat until a reshuffle took place. :-/ my Mate Jacki stayed calm, fair play to her, I know I’m annoying! It was hours and hours of flying.. we arrived in Sydney late […]

Excited and nervously waiting….

I got a phonecall yesterday from ITV. That’s right compers, a biggie! The comp the call was about is “Daybreak Down Under“. I can’t even remember what I wrote in the “why should we pick you to win” bit on the form although I remember writing it, then deleting it and rewriting a few times! Picture Credit – From ITV.com website The ITV chap wanted to confirm I entered myself, wanted to go and was eligible (age, valid passports and so on). I am *shortlisted* rather than won it, yet. Fingers crossed bloggers!! I didn’t think to ask yesterday when on the phone how many were shortlisted… I so should have. Curiousity got the better of me, so went looking online on my phone at lunch time at work today. Shortlist is only 75 but there are 50 prizes. So two thirds of us shortlisters will go to Aussie. The […]
