What I won in June | Journey of a Comper

Things have been very quiet on the competition front in recent months. I've been through a bit of a dry spell - although that could be something to do with the fact that I probably haven't been entering quite as many competitions as usual.

However, in June, my luck turned and I won TWO competitions. The first was a competition over on the Surfer Dad blog to win a hand screen printed t-shirt from the Atlantic Surf Company. I found out I won the competition just before Father's Day so I decided to treat my husband to the prize. The t-shirt is really soft and the perfect colour and fit. He is really pleased with it - and if he's happy, then I'm very happy!

Then, at the end of June, I went to the BritMums Live blogging conference #BML16. There were lots of brands at the event and most were running competitions involving selfies and hashtags. I was lucky enough to win the competition being run by DC Thomson, who publish magazines including The Official Jacqueline Wilson Mag, Animals and You and The Twirlywoos

I found out that I had won the competition on Wilf's 4th birthday. And he's really looking forward to receiving his six month subscription to Noddy Magazine

Elliot already has a magazine subscription to Match of the Day and he gets really excited when Tuesday comes around because that means his magazine will be arriving. I then don't see him for at least an hour as he devours the latest football news. I hope Wilfred gets as much pleasure from his subscription - both the magazine's arrival and its content.

What have you won recently?


  1. I hope your good luck continues, and I think the way you shared your well deserved wins is very admirable.

  2. Thanks Andrew. I hope the luck continues!
