Inspired by all the manic tweeting and Facebook-sharing of advent competitions and 12 Days of Christmas giveaways on my timelines, not to mention having some extra time at home looking after the kids when they were sick, I decided to have a go at entering some competitions this month. I didn't have the stamina to work through the humungous lists of advent competitions but I did discover twitaculous, which makes entering twitter competitions an absolute breeze. I was astounded when the wins started rolling in !
I received a lovely box of Maltesers from @apcsolutionsuk on twitter. They wanted a festive joke so I made one up. What did Santa say when he dropped his phone down the toilet? Ho ho ho dear !
Next was a hamper from Cico Books containing two books - Christmas Crafts and Christmas Cupcakes & Cookies.
There was also a lovely tin of festive notecards.
I won some (kids' and adults') aprons and wooden spoons from @CanIEatIt ...
... along with absolutely oodles of porridge oats ! As well as porridge, I'll have to make lots of flapjacks and see what else I can come up with !
Something rather special for Madhouse Daddy - a watch worth over £150 from James McCabe Watches (@mccabewatches on twitter).
I won a onesie from Yellow Mellon on Facebook so I let Sophie choose - she went for this wolf one !
And I also won a pair of shoes from Hotter - I decided to treat Sophie again so she chose these lovely snuggly Cannes boots.
I'm also awaiting a £15 M&S voucher and a box of Walkers crisps from other wins, plus I've just received £100 credit for boohoo.com for taking part in their Yourvine challenge (which you may have seen if you follow me on Facebook). Ooh and another one's just come in - a selection of cakes !
Maybe I should set some time aside each week to enter a few giveaways - or maybe I was just exceptionally lucky this month ! Have you had any luck with all the Christmas giveaways?
