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.

I am in need of some more bulbs for my garden. There has been a lovely show of daffs, tulips, hyacinths and grape hyacinths but only a few in a clump. I need to expand on that. I would love to buy some more bulbs, tulips being my favourite and maybe a garden chair to sit out and enjoy them
Roses are one of my favourites, they are so beautiful in full bloom, but I do also love so many other flowers.
