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 lavendar, it looks lovely, smells lovely and the bees love it too.
My favourite flowers, what a choice, in the end I think I shall have to go for Fuchsias as they are really pretty and also smell fantastic.
Roses are my favourite, they were my dads favourite flower too in the deep red colour. Unfortunatley he suddenly died last April at his allotment and for the funeral we had deep red rose heart wreaths that represent me, my mum and brother for each heart. Such a lovely flower x
So many to choose from - I love so many but I'll go for Honeysuckle as it reminds me of Summer evenings outside in the garden.
My favourite flowers are the Violets that grow in abundance under the trees in my Mum's garden during Spring.
They may only be small but their perfume certainly
packs a punch!
I love lilys so fragrant and gorgeous looking.
My favourite flower is anemones with their rich jewel flowers.They are only available to buy for a short period so I need to plant some bulbs.
I love Marigolds such a burst of colour in the garden
How to choose!! But special soft spot for the gorgeous red Poppy, after which I named my daughter x
Red Roses. Know i'm a romantic but I can dream
My favourite flower is the Gerbera, there have so many bright bold colours! xx
My favourites are carnations, especially growing in the garden. I love the greyish colour of the leaves with a pink flower.
I love Forget-me-nots :)
Favourite flower now where do i start, i love lilies for their statuesque nature and fragrance Roses for the wonderful colours and fragrance, Daisy as it reminds of times gone by, Cherry blossom as we know then spring has sprung, Buddleia as its nectar rich for bees and butterflies, Hydrangea as the memories of nan, but most of all the silky oriental poppies that grow with paper thin petals and the bees that get high on the rich pollen. I just love flowers.
I love buddleia. I have 4 in my garden, they attract so many bees and butterflies.
I love geraniums - nice bright red ones make a lovely
show in my garden tubs, and they tolerate warm
you cant beat Roses
It has to be Roses in all their many scents, sizes and colours !!
I've always loved Fuschias. My Dad always had loads in the garden when I was growing up
We only have a small patio but would love to buy some gorgeous flowers and new colourful pots to transform into an oasis :)
"The Wisteria" A quiet Woody Vine over Winter. Then this Vibrant Blue, Purple long cascading bloom appears in all it's glory in the spring.For it's short appearance it's the Belle of the garden ball and photographed for many a picture postcard and then retires into the background with it's bright green leaves taking the show for summer.
My favourite flower is a crocus as I love to see them come up at start of end of winter and their colours are so bright and vibrant after all those long dark nights.
Lavender, I made a hedge running down the side of my path two years ago and the smell when you brush against it is just sensational.
Roses - so many varieties and all of them beautiful
My favourite flower is carnations I love the smell, the colours and they tend to last a long time.
I love sunflowers, bright and colourful standing tall.
I love gerberas with their lovely bold colours.
Daffodils for my Welsh roots.
Lavender for its scent.
