Staying in is the new going out apparently. I rarely go out at night myself, preferring a DVD at home on the sofa with my family and homemade popcorn. Yes, I’ve become a bit old and sensible. · ‘Blended’ and ‘The Other Woman’ on DVD. · A bingo board game. · 4 face masks. · A £10 supermarket voucher for a shop of your choice. I’d suggest buying popcorn and sweets with the £10 and stick your feet up on the sofa with some mates. Maybe some mugs of hot chocolate and marshmallows.
November already? Crickey! Have you got the winter wardrobe out from the suitcase in the loft yet? You never know, you might win a great gift for Granny or a perfect present for Papa. View image | gettyimages.com Anyways, if you haven’t been over to #WinningWeekends before it is a competitions linky. A list of blog based, open to the UK, competitions. I started this linky as I like competitions and know bloggers can get lots of new followers from competitions. As I am both a blogger and a comper I totally love anything to do with competitions and it is great fun when you win something you want. If you are a blogger, share your competition urls here. If you are a comper just get entering and winning things. Please note, the linky widget confuses people because it says “NAME” please pretend that says “link name” or “post title”. If […]
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 had won the tickets in the ticket grab game, and as a result I had to try again to grab tickets. Think the Crystal Maze dome. Its like that.
Alrighty then, here goes. If you are unaware I am doing a charity skydive in memory of Matilda Mae you must be a new reader here, so Hiya and welcome. I mention it quite often on Twitter and Facebook that I am trying hard to fundraise. Sadly my donations haven’t taken off yet, so I’m trying something else. UPDATED – I have changed the donatition link in the Rafflecopter form to support Claire as I have reached the £400 I needed to reach. Sadly Claire hasn’t yet. All entries made via my donation page are still valid of course. The only change is where future donations end up. Also the lovely Lucy has a super-fast last minute raffle going on, same principal, make a small donation and you could win something. We are all working as a team to try to help each other raise money. A MAHOOOOSIVE charity raffle. […]
Every now and then I get asked to share something and I think why not. This was one of those email conversations. I am pleased to say I don’t have epilepsy, nor do my family. But I know it’s a very common condition and have worked with people with the condition. I know so little about it, so I’ll hand you over to John from Young Epilepsy for a guest post… Did you know that epilepsy affects 112,000 children and young people aged 25 and under in the UK? Put very simply, at every secondary school there will be five children on the register that have been diagnosed with the condition (the figure for primary schools is an average of one child per school).
Yes, you read that right, Vegas, in America, across the pond. Thanks to Quiz clothing someone will win; • 5 nights stay in a 5* hotel in Vegas, with flights • Transfer in style with a limo ride • Tickets to see Britney Spears • 5 dresses Julie’s notebook receives 50p for each genuine email address entry to this competition, and that commission will be donated to my #MMskydive fundraising page. So please hit those “share” buttons below.
No, I hadn’t either. But I was reading a pals blog, a lovely happy post, then I clicked on one of the related posts at the end. It was this the truth about tokophobia. Tokophobia apparently means an extreme phobia of pregnancy. So there is a new word for me to remember. I am terrified of pregnancy. Terrified of birth. Terrified of labour. I have flash back phobia related dreams. I imagine myself in labour, even though I am only dreaming I feel the pain. I feel cramping sudden pain like smaller contractions. Until I wake up I am back there. Things didn’t go well for me at the birth of my first son. Apparently it was all fine and not medically unusual. But I kept saying “something is wrong. Something is still inside me.” They didn’t believe I knew my own body, first time Mother, what would she know? […]
Welcome to the #WinningWeekends blog competition linky. Same as usual, pop your lovely links in the boxes below. For example put “30/5 Win a gift voucher – MyBlogName” in the box marked NAME if you’re running a comp to give away a gift card and the competition ends on 30th May. I don’t know about you, but I like to have a clue what I am clicking up front, and the closing date is just super helpful as I know some competition hunters look at posts from the last few weeks as well as the most recent post. #WinningWeekends means 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. Even if you aren’t a “comper” you might just fancy a quick flutter on a few competitions if you are feeling lucky. […]

OK, this isn’t likely to be something all my readers would be interested in but I am offering you the chance to win advertising space on my blog. Bloggers, small businesses’ and charities are my ideal advertisers. Why am I doing this? Feel free to have a read around my blog, and you’ll see I did this last year. I jumped from a plane last year for Matilda Mae, the late daughter of a friend. She was 9 months old and died from SIDS, she went to bed and never woke up. Reading about it got to me, I had to help, I had to do something. What can I do that is big enough? That can change things? That will help someone? That will mean something? So we skydived – jumping from the clouds, as near to heaven as you can be. I am terrified of heights, I properly cried – and […]
When I saw that La Jewellery wanted to work with eco-conscious bloggers to run a competition for their readers I hopped jumped at the chance. La Jewellery make lovely items with good ethics and a consideration for the environment. What’s not to like?! Technically this lovely window display is full of hares, but I’m thinking bunnies – Easter Bunnies, and I am hoping the winner replies in two shakes of a rabbit’s tail (quick) so that the lovely prize will pop through your letter box before Easter. Lets face it, lovely jewellery is going to last longer than a chocolate egg or bunny.
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 competitions which UK residents can enter please, and I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “25/3 win your favourite shoes – 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 runs all week. #WinningWeekends means that bloggers can quickly link up their posts, and maybe grab a badge […]
