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.

It's got to be poppy we used to have some in the garden when I was a nipper
Probably a strange choice but I love Aubretia's (if that's how you spell it). They make all the walls and hedgerows so cheerful and colourful for the next couple of months. Always make me smile :-)
My favorite flower is the rose, white roses in particular. I have a white patio rose in my garden in memory of my dad, a proud Yorkshireman.
I confess to not being a keen gardener so most of it is lawn and I grow everything in containers- so no weeding or digging!
Yes, I love Roses too.
I love snowdrops because they are such a welcome sight in late winter/ early spring. I see them peeping up through the snow in January,in full flower in February and very often for most of March too!They spread easily,need no attention and just look adorable in an otherwise dreary garden.
I love stocks, they always look so pretty!
Geraniums for me. Flower all way through to November
Lilies have got to be my favourite, so elegant & fragrant :)
Tulips and daffodils also primroses first signs of Spring and better weather hopefully .
roses are a true classic and so beautiful
Clematis, I have a couple of them in my garden. My favourite one is pink and will soon be flowering and has a amazing perfume.
Carnations are my favourites as they come in so many different colours and the scent is lovely.
Has to be the simple Daisy. Not only is my daughter named Daisy but they remind me of being a child spending endless hot summers on the school field making daisy chains. Brings back such happy memories when I see them, that and the smell of freshly cut grass.
Sunflowers, love their smiley looking faces following the sun in the garden.
I love Sunflowers. They cheer me up and brighten my day
I love tulips, they always remind me my mum's garden
Freesias are my personal favourite, I love their delicate flowers, the beautiful colours and their perfume is fantastic
Lavender, it smells great and attracts the lovely bees :)
White Lillies for their stunning fragrance or scented stocks and delicate fuscia's
The Venus fly trap, its got a nice bite to it ;-)
I love daffodils - I have loads in my garden and I love picking them and putting them in a vase!
I love lilies - well my Mum was called Lily - sadly the slugs love them too - I think someone busses them in each night for B & B!
I love Gerberas. Hoping to actually grow some this year as we have been doing 'groundwork' the last couple of years so haven't bothered with flowers. But this is the year of colour!
Mine has to be daffodils as they are so bright and cheery after the winter and mark the start of warmer months and lighter evenings.
With a new baby this years task is to do the garden ready for next year when he can enjoy it properly so would use it towards the makeover
my fave flowers are snowdrops,my nan used to take me and my sisters out into her garden when they flowered and tell us spring was here and summer was on its way.We now do that with our grandchildren.
I would like to have some tulips and daffodils in our garden
Its so hard to choose, but one of my favourites are Snowdrops - as soon as the little white flowers open, it makes me think spring is just round the corner (even if its only January).
