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 love roses because they are so beautiful and the fragrant one offer an extra dimension!
My favourite flowers are white roses, my Fiance (a Yorkshire Lad) has given me one every valentines since we met x
I love sweet peas they smell so lovely.
My favourite is not a particular flower but I love seeing blossom, any blossom - it makes me feel like winter is over and hopefully the summer sun will come soon
I like all sorts of flowers but my favourite ones are chrysanthemums - there are all sorts of colours and shapes
white roses :) I've loved them ever since reading snow white as a little girl.
I love peonies... I have 4 of them in my small patio garden, and they currently all have buds on them that are just beginning to break through... can't wait for them to come into full bloom... love them!
Gerberas are my favourite flower.
lilies are great, big flowers and colourful tooo
Paeonia Officinalis. Peonies come in various colours and forms, some similar to roses, some like poppies, blooming usually to coinicide with the final days of Spring and beginning of Summer.
Fuchsias are my favourites, so pretty and smell gorgeous.
Anything rambling with a bit of fragrance...Roses, Jasmine, Orange Blossom...at the moment my garden (recently moved in) is a dreary long streak of bumpy moss with lots of dandelions and daisies in it but I bought a weed removing tool and I can't put it down! It's really addictive.
Stargazer lily: Love the smell on a summers evening <3
I love snowdrops - when I see them peeping through the snow I know spring is on its way. As the year goes on I love lily of the valley. It is so delicate and has a wonderful perfume.
I love carnations especially in different shades of pink x
wow love all flowers different colours shapes and smells. love sweet peas jasmine and lavender gorgeous smells from my childhood
I love sitting out in the garden to enjoy my first cup of coffee of the day, much less keen to do any sort of gardening though. My favourite flowers are Spring ones like daffodils and snow drops, you know winter will soon be a distant memory
Sweet Peas are my favourite flower. They add a beautiful display of rich colour to any garden on walls, nets and garden canes and the scent from them when picked is out of this world. The more Sweet Peas you pick the more you get which means they are also great value for money.
i love narcissis, look like mini purple christmas trees.

Sweet peas, I love the deep colours. Great quick centre piece for the picnic table aswell.
I love Tuplips, in the garden and in the house, a true sign that spring is here.
I love lillies, fabulous aroma and they are stunning
Daffodils - always bright and cheerful bringing a bit of spring sunshine into the room .
I like snowdrops as they hint at warmer weather and mamage to sometimes grow in harsh conditions.
Mine are daisys as that is my lovely daughters name...xxx
Daisy. So beautiful I named my daughter after them.
I love stargazer lilies but have to be careful with my cat!
