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.

At school I enjoyed Geography the most. It was not my best subject but I used to find it really interesting.
Maths so no one could cheat me
Modern Studies - loved it :)
Science - it should be as that's what I now teach!
I loved Biology I found it very interesting to know about the life and existence
Art on a Friday Afternoon. It was the last two lessons and our teacher was usually quite drunk lol
It was Government and politics o level!!
I had a huge crush on my English teacher, still got a thing for tweed jackets!! Got an A too!
I loved English Language, I always wanted to be picked to read aloud to the class.
I loved Art, looking back I was probably quite rubbish x
i loved maths at school
maths as I always found it easy to master,comes in handy when managing the household budget now too!
Music, I adored it and eventually went on to teach it myself
I used to love English, I wish I had more of an effort with it.
PE because it was the only lesson where you could have a laugh with your friends, especially field sports where we could stand about chatting pretending we were waiting for the ball to come in our direction :)
I LOVED English! I always felt I was able to express myself better in it than I ever could in my own language.
English was my favourite subject, it still is, but its very difficult to see how much good it has done anyone, seriously, when its all abbreviations, bad spelling and texting these days and everything is short and sweet. I like long wordy sentences, descriptive and flowery adjectives, and word pictures. They make me smile now as they did when I was little and first learned of poetry and its beautiful understanding of things xx
Probably Maths because I fancied my Teacher !
I enjoyed Geography as it really interested me learning about other countries and populations.
mine was history at school but since college has been film
Your all going to think I am mad but my favourite subject was Maths! I still love it today!
I'm not sure it was my favourite subject, but my best subject was French. This was only because I was terrified of our French teacher, so worked very hard and did well in her classes!
I think my favourite was maths, as I could understand what I had to do!
maths - I loved it!
Business studies x
My favourite was always maths.
I loved Maths, it was my favourite subject as I enjoyed the challenge of working things out.
It was History. I still love it, and it has been the reason I have traveled to so many place.
I loved PE at school. I was on the swimming, netball, football and rounders teams. Rounders was my fave :)
French was my favourite subject.
