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 like tulips because they remind me of my mum xx
Amaryllis is my favourite, so pretty.
Deep, rich, ruby peonies. Beautiful.
Freesias - beautiful flowers & gorgeous scent
Cowslips are my favourite flower, I've got some in the garden but I love to see them on the motorway embankments or covering a meadow in our beautiful countryside.
Anemones are my favourite.
I love red roses, I love all roses but red is best, especially dark velvety red. It has nothing to do with romance but ever since I was a a child I have loved red and red flowers and nothing is nicer than a vase of red roses with some gyp. Shame I never get any.
I love poppies!
A mass of snowdrops
I love roses!
Poppy-I love how they grow wild and make the most ugly place look beautiful, but also the larger Poppys. We have so many all potted up, i cant wait for this years blooms. My daughter is also named Poppy, it just couldn't of been anything else!!
Gladiolas (i hope i spelt that correct!) I think they look fab and as a bonus they remind me of Dame edna everidge which makes me smile!
I really love roses,any colour or type.They smell and look so lovely. I have a summer birthday, so always had roses from our garden on the table for my birthday.I can't help thinking of them as MY flower!
I love roses. the look and the smell are perfect
I love Sweet Peas, they smell so beautiful x
Mine would be the lovely Frangi Pani, I love them! Remind me of Australia - around the beach....wish I was there now :)
Daisies, very simple but so pretty.
Freesia are my favourite flower, I love the smell.
Got to be sweet peas. Such beautiful colours and wonderful scents,I grow them every year in my garden.
Daffodils are my favourite at this time of year
Tulips are my favourite!
Roses. love the colours of Peace and fragrence
My favourite flower is a Platycodon grandiflorus Miss Tilly
I had never heard of it this time last year - however, I have a daughter called Tillie and she asked if there was a plant named after her and we couldn't believe it when we found this one!
It is beautiful and as it grows it all of a sudden balloons then pops open! My Tillie is full of surprises too! She is a huge fan of competitions at the lovely age of 5 :-)
My favourite flower is the Stargazer Lily, they look and smell gorgeous.
I love sweet peas as they come in lots of lovely colours, look really dainty, and smell nice too. Also they remind me of my nan as she always used to grow them.
When I was a little girl I used to take lilac to school for my teacher. Despite the fact they were put in a (very boring)jam jar they still looked lovely and smelled gorgeous placed on her desk. To this day I love lilac, not only for the beautiful flowers that they are, but for the very fond memories they evoke :) x
I love any type of rose x
My favourite flower to look at and my favourite flower for it's perfume are two different ones but I'll go with the lovely, large,bright red poppies that grow in my garden each year.
