This weeks word is win, before I get to why I will tell you a little story. On Wednesday we had planned to meet up with some friends at the park for an afternoon play date, I woke up feeling a little yucky I’ve not been sleeping very well and the heat wasn’t helping. I felt like staying home and if I’m honest the last thing I wanted to be was sociable but I pulled my socks up and went anyway.
As we reached the park a bird pooped on me and let me tell you it was that big I thought it might have been a squirrel. Instead of heading home I rolled my sleeves right up and got on with it.
The children had a great time playing with their friends on the park it was a beautiful day and we all know those have been few and far between lately. After having a giggle at my misfortune my friends remarked that it was lucky for a bird to poop on you and that I would win the lottery and you know what they weren’t that far off the mark with what happened next.
The children and I headed home and Jake took his afternoon nap. I didn’t check my emails until late afternoon. When I did I had the most wonderful surprise win awaiting me. I’ve been entering consumer competitions for almost 15 years now. It’s a wonderful hobby. It has brought me so many wonderful prizes and experiences over the years but what I won on Wednesday blew me away.
Dreams have been running a weekly competition over the summer offering various prizes to win. I won on week 6 which was £8000 worth of goodies. Here’s what I will receive.
- Bedroom makeover (£4,000 to spend at Dreams)
- Samsung 55″ Smart TV
- Sonos Playbar Home Cinema Sound Bar
- Apple Ipad Air 64GB
- Nikon Coolpix bridge camera
- Bose® SoundLink™ On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones with Mic/Remote
- Michael Kors Handbag

I wish you could all have seen my reaction to that email. I’m still in shock and of course delighted and so so grateful to have won.
