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.

Mine was art because I got to sit next to my best friend and the teacher didn't mind us chatting
Maths was my favourite - and I still enjoy doing it today!
My favourite subject was maths.
Maths. Still is. Know people think it weird.
I loved English and still write lots of poetry today
My favourites were English Literature and physics. Loved both
Mine was music and particularly the Brass lesson - You got to get out of class for a period on a Thursday which was great as a Thursday consisted of R.E., Triple Maths and Double OPE.
History! I find the past so interesting and important to learn about.
My favourite subject was English Literature. I used to feel so excited as a child to receive the new English books for the school year, and would immediately start reading through the whole books as soon as possible.
My favourite subject was Drama. I'm a drama queen of long standing. lol
I loved History - still do !
My favourite was art.
I loved PE! At last a chance in the week to put my brain in neutral, after PE came Maths, Physics, English, History, Geography, etc, etc, etc, all the way down to Art which is a horrible lesson for those of us who can't draw or sculpt and paint brown dogs "brown!"
Art and CDT. x
Geography :) always found the destructive side of the world very interesting
CDT and Science
Maths! I love the logic!
I loved Art and English Literature.
Home economics opened my eyes
I loved History, I was a bit disappointed when taking my options I passed the exam for history and was put in the class for Social and Economic history,(which sounded boring) rather than the King's and Queen's of England, but I did find it really interesting and thoroughly enjoyed it,and got the highest grade in the CSE exam. 30 plus years later I still love History, and so does my daughter and 1 of my Grandchildren.
I loved art, right from before I started school. never made a great career out of it, though !
I loved graphic design, I loved planning things out on paper and then trying to create them - mostly unsuccessful I might add though! Also almost broke my nose creating a bookmark holder, I was chiseling quite hard and one end shot up straight into my nose!
My favourite subject was cookery. I was not much good at it then and am no better now. :(
Home Economics as I loved cooking.
Art, I went to a school that had more art classes and we even did an art class trip to Estonia, it was lovely x
Always loved maths
mine was textiles!
I enjoyed English Language, particularly writing poetry.
