Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Won another Goodreads book and a free pint of Carling from their iPint app, but I do have one other win to report – I have finally won a break away! Yes, you read that correctly, after years of trying I have finally managed to win a holiday related prize – hurrah! I have won a romantic mini-break at Chiltern Valley B&B in Oxfordshire, including a two hour vineyard and Brewery tour – I am really rather excited! I won the comp through Mills & Boon and despite having missed their first email somehow they were kind enough to chase me up with a second, which I quickly responded to So just goes to show that perseverance pays off and you realty can win those Wish List prizes if you just keep trying!
Well we are in the home straight now, less than two weeks to go now until the kids go back to school. We have had some fun this summer, as well as some boring days for the kids when we have been working or doing chores, but I don’t think a little boredom is a bad thing. Entertaining the little ones all day every day doesn’t set them up to have a very good imagination I don’t think; they need time to work out games on their own and realise that we are not there to tell them what to do every second of the day. Still, I am rather glad that the end is in sight now as the girls are starting to get on each other’s nerves and it is almost time to get back to some sort of normality, routine and into early nights again.
If you have little ones going back to or starting school in September have you finished all your shopping for uniform, shoes and accessories? Just a pair of shoes and a pencil case left to get here and then we will be done. Back to school shopping can be a very expensive thing though, especially if you have more than one child to buy for or have older children at high school. Here at The PrizeFinder we want to help lighten the load of back to school, shopping, by offering you the chance to win in our fabulous monthly members-only competition. Join in with this month’s comp and you could be wining £50 to spend at Tesco on whatever you want – pick up some uniform essentials, a new backpack, stationery goodies or just fill up the fridge and cupboards ready for all those packed lunches and after school snacks.
To enter all you need to do is to tell me in the comments below what your favourite subject at school was. For me it would probably be English Literature – so many books and just not enough time in the day! You need to be a registered PrizeFinder member and logged into your account to enter. One entry per person and one winner will be chosen at random after the closing date of 23:59 on Sunday 30th August 2015.

My favourite subject was cookery on a Friday morning, I loved it!
Without question, it was ART :)
Biology as I love wildlife
I have to agree with English Literature (or just English in Junior school). I was a child who made FULL use of the council and school libraries. I also spent a lot of my pocket money in the charity bookshops - and once came home from a jumble sale wheeling a refuse sack of books on a roller skate!
I actually loved arithmetic.
English - my first foreign language from age 10. I liked it so much that I would eventually study English at university and then move to England where I have lived for 30 years now.
I loved Spanish - enjoyed every minute
i loved science, and still do today.
I liked human biology as found very interesting
Maths was my thing (and sadly still is)! How sad am I?!
English as liked most of the teachers and was quite good at it
I loved history . I studied social and economic history of Great Britain from 1750 onwards and found it so interesting .
Definitely English Literature.
My favourite subject was Maths - or did I have a crush on the teacher?
Geography - especially geology. I loved studying volcanoes.
my favourite subject was English, the teacher was a bit dopy and just asked us to write an essay,my imagination ran riot and many pages were filled,
my favourite subject at school was Maths
History was my favourite subject in school. I still enjoy history
It was definitely music! So much fun! All the singing and instruments, it didn't even seem like you were in a class anymore.
History was my favourite, I went on to study it at university too. :)
used to love design and technology
Probably Geography, and I'm still fascinated by the world today! we're all very lucky to live here!
Definitely a tie between Home Economics and Geology. The secret geek in me at the time loved learning about earthquakes, volcanoes and dinosaur fossils, but as a permanently hungry teen, I also loved carrying my wicker cookery basket (heavier than Thor's hammer) into school and returning home with a giant bowl of banana custard to scoff! Yumma.
it had to be Art, the only thing I was good at
I loved Art and design and still enjoy it today
History - The French Revolution.
My favourite was Arithmetic
Biology, though I have English Literature to thank for my love of Shakespeare
My favourite subject was English Literature and I still love reading now
