I won a competition
Hello dear friends, I hope you are having a lovely day.
My day has been lovely!
I got up to a couple of lovely thoughtful messages, one from my mum saying she would be popping over to see us and did I need anything from the shops, I said no because I didn't want her to have to stop just for me.
My eldest son arrived and it was lovely because he chatted and helped me make sandwiches for lunch, as I thought it would be nice to have lunch ready for mum when she arrived.
My mum arrived and as per normal she had stopped on her way here and bought goodies for us. We are spoilt rotten by her and my dad.
Whilst my mum was here, the doorbell went and a man was delivering a parcel, I advised him I hadn't ordered anything but he checked the name and it was definitely for me. I brought it in and opened it, very confused.
This was inside!
My mum and eldest son recommended I check my bank account, but I vaguely remember entering a competition for this a while ago, I often enter competitions if I think its something my children would like. I checked my emails, nothing. So I eventually called the number on the parcel and explained the situation, the man advised me I had won this and he had sent it out to me yesterday.
I don't think I have ever won anything before and have to admit to jumping around the kitchen.
I would like to thank Future publishing limited for the amazing prize.
My youngest son is really into cars in a big way and I will be putting this away for his birthday as I know he will be thrilled with it. Lucky me!
I have also been doing online reviews in return for Amazon vouchers and now have £20.00 towards birthday and Christmas presents. Aren't I doing well.
I have to admit I did nothing apart from hoover the downstairs of the house today. Yes Nathalie Nada, nothing! I just spent the day chatting to my mum and eldest son whilst everyone else went about doing their usual thing.
I have done no walking this week so if the weathers nice tomorrow I might take the children out for a bike ride to make up for it.
I have one bid on one of my eBay items. Yes finally! But I didn't put anything else on eBay today, I will add more items tomorrow.
Now I'm going to clean the kitchen whilst my eldest boys go out for a run... I should be joining them but that really is a little too energetic.
When they get back I will put the little ones to bed and I promised my eldest son I would help him look at colleges in the US for his masters degree year. Wish me luck, it could be a long night.
Have a lovely evening and take care xx
