Insomnia and noisy babies - the bright side!

Mummy, I'm HELPING you here!

Honestly, there is a silver lining to being awoken at 3.37am, and if you hop on over to Mrs Thrifty's blog you'll find out how it can help you win prizes. Yes, part 2 of my 'How to win Competitions' is up. Yesterday was an introduction and where to find the best giveaways, and today is where I'm actually giving away secrets to ensure that it's your name getting picked out of the metaphorical hat. Do go over and have a peek if you get a chance.

Many thanks to those of you who commented here or on the first part of the guest post yesterday. It's hard writing for someone else's audience, so I really appreciate those who took the time to say something. You know who you are!

Competitions are one of my favourite things - well, more specifically winning them - so I'm linking up to Mimi and Tilly's Favourite Thing on  a Friday.

Have a wonderful weekend

  4. Probably the Debenhams dash or Bafta awards nominees goody bag - those celebs get seriously spoilt! There was a designer handbag, massage at the Dorchester spa, champagne, flight upgrades, vodka, makeup.., and loads more.

  7. Your guest posts were full of so many tips. I'm bound to win something now. Your tip about local newspapers is so right as well, my friend's mum used to always win the competitions in ours.

    Thanks for your comments on my posts. I wouldn't class myself as a photographer, but I do know what a few of the different settings do (who actually uses ALL of the buttons?!) and I like experimenting.

    I'll let you know if I win anything ;) x

  13. Those guest posts must have taken you ages, there's so much information and it's a right good read, too.
    Sorry to be so late in commenting but I wanted to read it all properly first!
    Hope your weekend's been good. xxx
    PS Found the ring..hooray! The Borrower must have got fed up with it after having it for an entire week.

  16. Just had a minor heartattack thinking you had become a mum again... surely I would have noticed the last time I saw you? Love your post about competitions over on A Thrifty Mrs... I will try and take advantage of my own new mum status as you suggest :-)
