I do, I know this might give you a mental image of old folks at a retirement home, but it’s not like that. Almost every holiday park we go to I play bingo* in the evenings, just one book usually so around the price of a latte. I’ve never been keen on bingo in arcades, collecting tickets and taking them to a kiosk to cash in about a billion winning tickets for a single Mars bar. Nope! I’ll be honest I have played online bingo and won some, and lost some too.
Its not often Blokey and I manage to get time alone together, but Saturday was childfree. His Brother stayed at our house whilst we went to the rugby finals at Twickenham.

I recently won a £100 Groupon voucher, which I’m so grateful for. Thanks again to Luci at mother.wife.me blog.

We had been looking at professional photo studios, and partner said “the boys Will need a good haircut first?” so we were looking at a three figure sum to fix this. Then I saw this on my Groupon app: “Family Photoshoot With Two Children’s Haircuts, Canvas Print and Additional Prints […]
Now that I’m getting the hang of blogging, mainly by stalking twitter friends blogs I am getting more confident at this. I thought I’d have a little waffle, if this is OK with you guys? As you might know, as I hobby I comp. For those of you that don’t know “comp” or “comping” is entering competitions as a hobby, for profit, for the thrill or just because you’ve nowt better to do… which is how my addiction to comping started incidentally. In Feb 2011 we had a phone call from first news (children’s newspaper) about a competition my eldest had entered. It was quite a shock, and cried, was shaking, the LOT. He had won us a weeks holiday to Universal theme parks in Florida!! Gobsmacked and shell shocked didn’t begin to cover it. I was assured I would hear from Universal within a week, and that’s where the stress […]
