February has been a really good month for me, my first win of the new month was a bit of a surprise, it was the first Saturday of February and on that morning the postman delivered me a big gold envelope through my letter box, when I first opened it I thought it was just a marketing mailer in the form of a cardboard cheque but after closer inspection it was actually a postcode lottery win of £1000. I can’t tell you how much this means to me and I know it wasn’t a competition win as such but I thought I would put it in my February blog just so I can look back on this one day. My son Alfie is already mentally spending my winnings for his upcoming birthday in April, all I can say is that he’s got expensive taste!
I’ve been quite lucky throughout February and am truly grateful for even the small prizes, this month I was super lucky and won cinema tickets twice which I’ve never ever won before.
Apparently in the UK we celebrate National Popcorn Day, who even knew this was a thing, I was lucky to win a selection of Popcorn goodies from Butterkist on their Instagram competition along with a £50 Odeon cinema voucher, this came just in time for the half term holidays. My boys were well and truly spoilt with a trip to the cinema to watch the new Lego movie 2 and to also watch The boy who would be king.
I’ve just recently won another cinema gift card on Twitter in the last couple of days from Hyper Recruitment, they messaged me to inform me I’d won their competition and had won a £20 Cineworld voucher, I am over the moon and will save this for the next half term holidays. It’s so lovely to treat the kids to the cinema but as a family of 5 it does get expensive and I’m truly grateful for this wonderful hobby and the wonderful prizes it brings.
Some of my other prizes throughout February are listed below
Instagram Valentines Competition – Online Star Register – I won a star which I got to choose and name and it is now officially registered on the official star register, I’m not going to go into too much detail and tell you the name yet, I’m keeping this one a secret and am gifting it to my husband for his birthday in April, now that really is a fab prize!
Instagram – Bottle of Canadian Maple Syrup from Pure Maple Syrup
Twitter – Lavera Official – Lavera tinted moisturising cream and lipstick
Twitter – 4 Tickets to the Cheltenham Festival which starts in March – now this really is a fab prize for my husband, he absolutely loves his horse racing.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a lucky March with Pancake day and World Book day coming up. I wish you all lots of luck too.
