Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Couple of small ones here since last week, - 2 x Body Shop face masks from a Comper 2 Comper comp on Facebook, and a Little Book of Care from the Care+ Facebook instant win. All the little wins are what keep us going aren’t they – keep our mojo up until we get that next big win. What has been your favourite win so far this year? Mine is probably the vouchers I won from the photo comp with Kiss FM - £100 of iTunes and £25 of Starbucks, all come in very handy!
If you have little ones are they back to school today – are you relieved or sad that they have gone? Mixed feelings as always here, I love having them home and spending time as a family, but it is really very difficult trying to keep working and juggling everything else when they are here. Still, weather has been lovely the last few weeks and we have managed to get out on a few nice outings together as a family, and visited my family on the Mainland at the end of last week too. Be the summer holiday before we know it - argh!
Do you like to get outside in the garden when the weather is nice? We aren’t lucky enough to have a garden where we are at the moment, but it is the main criteria for the next house we move into! I love getting outdoors in the spring, just watching the kids play or having a big BBQ. Did you know it is National Gardening Week this week (13 – 19 April 2015), so what better reason to get outside and do some weeding, organising for the summer or just enjoying the fact that it isn’t raining non-stop! To celebrate The PrizeFinder is giving all our wonderful members the opportunity to win a £50 National Garden Gift Voucher! You could stock up on seeds and plants, buy yourself some shiny new tools, or put it towards some nice new garden furniture - how would you spend yours? To enter this exclusive competition all we want you to do is tell us your favourite flower in the comments box below. Mine would probably be tulips, although I am very fond of roses too – timelessly elegant, and never fail to cheer me up.

Roses, for their smell and variety
I like snowdrops, so simple yet classy!
I'm going to say any wildflowers as they help the bees and butterflies. I have seeing gardens and roadsides planted with bedding plants that have been genetically altered to create a high heralding bloom but no pollen. We really need to look after our wildlife better
I love freesia they are the flowers I had in my wedding bouquet and my nan's favourite too :)
Dahlia has always been my favourite flower
I love spending time in my garden all year round. My favourites are my roses because they bloom continuously, they look and smell fragrant and I can cut buds for indoors, which saves me money.
My favourite flower is the daffodil , the give a big splash of bright colour in the spring
Lavender - looks and smells good!
I love the diversity of fuschias :)
My favourite flowers are tulips or fuschia both of which bloom year after year once planted and require minimal input which is great for me as I am sadly not green fingered at all. We are currently redoing our garden which over the years has developed into a nettle infused weed jungle. During the winter we have completely cut everything back, and removed all the roots so all thats left is earth. We are hoping to get some weed matting and then cover with gravel and have planters with different flowers in scattered around so the voucher would be great towards that :)
I love lilies and lavender
I love yellow roses, beautiful
I like magnolia blossom
Begonias, they are a very hardy annual and last well into the winter
You can't beat the old favourite, roses
I like red roses- i enjoy giving them to my wife
I love snowdrops,they are so simple and perfect
Tulips, so many cheerful colours
Petunias they are highly fragrant especially when I sam sat outside on a warm summers evening
I have a favourite flower for its appearance which is a peony - just full and beautiful! And then I have a favourite flower because of its scent which is a freesia because it always reminds me of my nan!
Red roses - we has them at our wedding in December 2010 & they always remind me of that day.
One of my favourites is buddleia which causes some conflict in the household as others consider it a pest.
I would buy some sturdy perennials to replace the flowers my dog has dug up!
Daffodils -you can'tbet them x
I love fuschias, they are so pretty and mixed colours, looking like tiny ballerinas!
