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.

mine are violets, remind me of my nan
Climbing scented roses, all colours are lovely
Mine are definitely daffodils!
I love carnations. They last for ages and smell lovely.x
I just adore lillys, always ever have <3
red roses they smell and look lovely
My favourite for the garden is clematis - any kind - I love their rambling nature and their abundant flowers. Cut flowers would have to be freesias for their scent.
My favourite flowers are carnations. I love the smell and they last for absolutely ages so you get value for money too! :-)
I love roses because there are so many colours and scents, they look beautiful in the garden as well as in a vase.
My favourite flower is a fragrant pink rose because they look and smell amazing and are not too difficult to grow!
White Roses, mine and my mother's favourite :)
Daffodils - They are one of the first splashes of colour that appear in gardens showing that winter is over and warmer days are on the way.
My favourite flower is the freesia.
Nigella, so pretty when you get lots of different colours.
I've always loved pansies and violas - the traditional ones with the little faces :-)
I love all flowers but I am fond of my wedding flowers provided to me in Greece, of Hot Pink (fuschia) Gebras and get them now on every wedding anniversary xx
i love red geraniums in terracotta pots, it makes me think i am in the med. lol. x
Would have to be Sweet Peas, the last conversation I had with my big sis was about Edward & Sophie's wedding and so at her funeral I laid sweet peas all up the Aisle it smelt and looked amazing.
I grow them every year now and their beauty is awe inspiring :)
What a lovely comp! :)
so many choices! I love flowers, from tulips, daffs and crocuses that herald the arrival of spring, to fuchsias in autumn and cyclamen in winter but my favourite are pink and purple osteospermums
Lavender, such a calming scent
I love all flowers and shrubs, but for their unique shaped flowers, my favourite has to be the bleeding heart, Dicentra:- its perfect form makes your heart bleed!
I love Dahlia flowers full of life and colour
My favourite flower is a forget-me-not - they are just so delicate and pretty and yet can be found everywhere growing wild like weeds or in nicely kept gardens. I love how they can come up either blue or sometimes a pinky purple colour depending on soil acidity I'm guessing.
I love poppies - I have several colours in my cottage garden and they thrive and look gorgeous
Fuchias - So different and colourful.
