Half way through the year

Well we are halfway through the year and as my 5 year old keeps reminding me we are halfway to Christmas! I am thrilled I have won over £2000 worth of prizes and it would be great to double that by the end of the year.

Fabulous lucky week

I feel like I have had so much more luck this week, the hard to enter easy to win comps are really paying off. I tend to enter most competitions on facebook. I have started blogging for the nectar's savviest family and the final prize is amazing, I have only done two blog posts up to now but i'm finding it really fun! Check out my blog, and to help my chances of winning please leave a comment, tweet about it and facebook it!!!!

I have won £5.00 voucher for morrisons on their facebook page.

And £30.00 voucher from the Argento Contemporary Jewellery facebook page thanks to Super-Lucky for posting this on her blog

And the best prize of the week is one I won in our local paper worth £1000!!! It was a Fathers Day gift present although I can't give it to my Dad as i won't actually get it for 3 weeks. You had to summit an embrassing photo of your Dad, and then the top ten would go into the paper and there would be a public vote, however i got an email yesterday to say that the people of macclesfield mustn't be keen on competitions and as there wasn't much of a response, so my dad was chosen!!
The prize includes:
An overnight stay in a hotel for 2 with a 3 course meal and breakfast
£90 worh of books from apex
2 VIP tickets to super bikes
Macc town dad and lad season tickets (unfortunatly my dad has already paid for his)
A case of cava
Half price photography session
£100 get the label gift voucher

What a great prize? This is the second competition I have won with them this year, just for putting a little bit of effort in :)

Anything you can do I can do it better

I have wanted a magazine rack for our living room and couldn't find one suitable or at a decent price, after looking round for ages I gave up, then I spotted one in a charity shop for £2.50. I bought it and decided i would paint it to match our decor, after reserching i found a competition on the rustoleum website so decided to go for that one so I could enter the competition aswell. Here are my before and after pictures:

 After Dave had seen this he set about winning the challenge, here's his pictures!!

After giving my number by accident when he entered (to busy being a smart arse!) I got the phone call yesterday to say that he had won the £250!! After asking the very nice lady on the phone if my magazine rack was chosen, she said no but said she would send 4 cans along with dave's money so I can have another go. I couldn't believe it, its the biggest win I have had (although it was technically dave who won it, but to bad he gave my number haha!)

This is a great competition to enter, they are running it every month until december 2012, giving £250 as first prize as well as 10 runners up of 6 cans each! Enter here

I also have some VERY exciting news, I have been chosen to be in the final eight nectars savviest family blogging competition! eeeek I'm very nervous and excited as I don't have any experience of blogging but I will give it my best shot!

I had an email today to say I have won a years membership to the woodlands trust with the ronseal competition, they are giving a membership away everyday so its worth entering.

Prizes today : £283.00
Prize total : £607.00
