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.

Lily of the valley. The last flowers my Mum picked before she passe away .
Rainbow Roses - they are absolutely exquisite and perfect to look at :)
My favourite flower is always the flower I am looking at, at that moment. They are all beautiful and we take them for granted. at the moment I am loving the tulips that are coming through and the cherry blossom on the trees.
Nasturtiums are so colourful, spread easily, the bees love them, they're so easy to grow and, wait for it - they look gorgeous on your plate of summer salad!
My favourite flowers are Freesias, they are so delicate and pretty and have the most incredible, beautiful smell. Great prize, I am trying to win my mum garden table and chairs so this prize would definitely come in handy!
Freesia their scent is fabulous.
I adore peonies
Sunflowers, trying to grow some this year with my daughter. We are seeing who can grow the tallest.
My favourite flower is the lily, I love the delicate scent that fragrances my home, it's a real mood-lifter!
It has to be sweetpeas, the smell is so beautiful along with the different colours they display.x
Snowdrops as they show spring is on the way!
I do love Buttercups :)
Dahlias - My Dad grew them every summer when we were small and they remind me of him. There were such a variety of colours and so many shapes and sizes from tiny, tiny pom poms to great big sunburst ones ! A second is Fuchsia's - I called my daughters after flowers Jessamy; Sorrel and Fuchsia !
Peony which I have growing in my garden
So difficult! I think I would probably go for freesia. Beautiful, delicate and so perfectly scented.
The Gerbera flower, such vibrant colours.
I love Tulips although they don't last long, shame they don't.
My favourite is the Magnolia. Such a beautiful flower. Am very lucky to have a huge Magnolia in my garden. Its just flowering at the moment and is the highlight of the garden. x
Roses - timeless, elegant and romantic. We have a few wild ones in our garden and my granddad planted one in my mum and dad's garden when I was born. They had it for many, may years. They are just such a beautiful classic.
roses for me everytime
I love daffodils- just so lovely to see in the spring and I am welsh afterall!
Big fan of fuchsias.
I love Gerberas
geraniums always reliable last all season and so many colours.
Roses - I had them in my wedding bouquet.
Freesias are my favourite - such a beautiful flower and smell! I had them in my wedding bouquet 30-odd years ago and they will always remind me of that happy day.
i love yellow roses
My garden really needs some work but I am very proud of my huge Rosemary bush, my rather modest Lavender and my surprisingly robust honeysuckle, which desperately needs a new climbing frame. As for favourites, all flowers are my favourite with Roses being somewhere at the bottom of my list.
I love freesias they are my mum's and my nan's favourite too
