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.

My favourite flower is the rose. I like to see them flowering in the summer time in the garden and then being able to buy them all year round to have in the house.
My favourite flowers are Sweet Peas. They have a lovely scent and remind be of happy days playing in my Grandmother's garden.
I love sweet peas as they were my mum's favourite
My favourite is Sunflowers - they always make me smile!
My favourite flower is daisy, especially the big ones you get in bushes! Always a happy flower. Lots of nice memories making daisy chains as a kid...its a flower that symbolises friendship to me
Love red roses, so beautiful!
Iris is my favourite especially when next to daffodils and the daffs bring out the yellow in the iris petal
As i'm Welsh - it has to be the fabulous Daffodil x
Sweet peas, I love the smell and they remind me of my nana and grandad.
I love spring flower such as daffodils and tulips. It's great to see the splash of colour following a long winter. :-)
I am in process of making a sensory garden for my kids so far we have lavender, rosemary and mint...beautiful smells as you walk through...
I love gerberas, had them at my wedding, and currently have a vase of pink ones in my living room. Always cheer me up!
It has to be poppies for me! Any kind, my garden's full of them! Normally I don't have anything unperfumed but the poppies get away with it because they are so beautiful. Sewing more this year, there's always room for some more!!!
I really love the scent of many flowers, but for looks I love pansies - those funny little faces and many colours just make a lovely display in beds or baskets.
I love lily of the valley
Fuscias for me. The bushes grace any garden and the flowers are like soft gentle bells hanging down.
Roses are my favourites; especially the delightfully-scented Blue Moon, but I love anything colourful
Hydrangea - I planted in my garden 40 years ago and its still blooms every year
Would have to be freesias. They smell so wonderful
love roses perfect for my wife
Snowdrops - seeing the first snowdrops makes you think that spring will soon be on its way
Daffodils as they let us know that spring is on it s way !
Its got to be the huge and exotic flowers that are currently in bloom on my magnolia tree.The white outer petals haze into pale pink in the centre and the perfume is amazing. Every year the opening of the flowers is the start of true spring and they never disappoint.
I know it's predictable but nothing compares to a scented rose
I love freesias. They smell so nice and fetch back memories of my grandma as she always had them in the house
I like daffodils, cos they're easy to grow!
I love Sweet Williams,and have done since I was a youngster. They are multicoloured and cheer up any garden.
Alliums, just beautifully striking
The gerbera is my favourite as they are bright and colourful and I think of them as the happy flower!
I LOVE YELLOW ROSES.
