August hasn’t been a too bad month, it’s been a bit crazy with the summer holidays and having 3 little ones at home, it’s been lovely being on maternity and spending all summer with my babies but I am looking forward to the return of school but not so much the school runs!
I think the prizes that I have won through August have been ones that have filtered through from July’s entries.
On the 4th of August I got a mention on Instagram to advise I’d won a box of 12 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the promoter was giving away 25 prizes a day so the chances of getting a winning entry were high. To enter you had to upload a group photo with 2 or more people in the photo smiling and tag them with the hash tag quote #80yearsofsmiles. I have since received my voucher through the post and plan to redeem it soon at the new Krispy Kreme doughnut shop that’s just opened in Victoria Centre Nottingham, I can’t wait to treat the family to some doughnuts.
During the middle of August I received an email from The Craft Company to inform me I’d won their Facebook competition and had won their FMM Ranunculus bundle, the bundle arrived a few days later by courier and included lots of goodies for cake decorating. I kindly donated this to my friend Mandy, I felt Mandy would be able to put it to good use with her specializing in cake decorating. I don’t have the time or the patience so gladly gifted this one, I just love my comping hobby and get great satisfaction in gifting presents to friends and loved ones.
I won 2 further prizes during August, one being a children’s book and CD bundle which I’ve put away for Christmas and the other was an internet booster won at a local village raffle.
As we head into September and the weather starts to cool down I find myself starting to think more about Christmas, everything that I win from August on wards goes into my Christmas box, they do say “every little helps”.
