Sometimes I find that wins come at exactly the right moment and this one certainly did. One of the things D has wanted me to try to win is a PS4 as he has a few grumbles with them (such as them not being backwards compatible) which meant neither of us could see the point in paying out to upgrade our PS3’s. Anyway, 4 days before our 1st wedding anniversary I received another message from Walkers on Twitter to say I’d won something via theirΒ  promotion (I assumed it was another football at first) so I hoped over to my DM’s and stared shocked at the screen as I tried to take in that I had won a PS4 (and download code for Konami Pro Evolution Soccer 2017). Once I had I decided that it would make a nice surprise extra gift for D for our anniversary so I made a little card and put it inside the gift I had for him already. He was surprised when he found out and very pleased and when it arrived he was really happy so now we have to get some games for him, he’s got me Lego Dimensions with the Fantastic Beasts packs for my Birthday so I just have to wait for him to connect it all up which will hopefully be over the weekend πŸ˜€

This morning I received a lovely surprise in the post, this Hyaluronic Acid Serum! I believe that I have won this from the competitions run through House and Garden and from February’s set of Daily ones if I am correct in my searching.

This is a type of product I use myself but I have not tried this brand yet so I’ll add this one in to try out once my current serum has been exhausted πŸ˜€

Deliveries 24th February 2017

As many of you know I’ve spent much of this year so far in the hospital and for a while in the future I will be too as they try to figure out just what is wrong with me. At some point I may write a post about my experiences but right now it doesn’t make much sense to me so I’ve no idea how to make it make sense for anyone who reads this! I have made a decision to try and get back to normal even with all this madness going on in the background and so starting doing my deliveries posts again is a step on the road back to my life so here goes πŸ˜€


I received this razor from Wilkinson Sword. I’m not sure exactly if it’s a win, freebie or trial product due to the email I received stating “Remember that Wilkinson Sword trial you applied for? You won!” but whichever it is, it will come in handy, good razors always do πŸ˜€

I have a bit of everything in here today, there’s some shopping a freebie and a win too!

I’ll start with the win, as you can see on my phone I won Β£5 from the FreePostcodeLottery and this was from the flash draw. I found the advert and about 3 hours later the money was in my Paypal, you can’t get much better than that now can you! OK yes you can, I could win one of the big draws, or you could, just click the link and sign up. Remember to check back each day to see if you’ve been lucky πŸ™‚

Next we’ll discuss the freebie, now that is obviously the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Flipbalm. I received this via a SoPost link which they posted on their Facebook page offering these in 1 of 3 flavours. I chose Creamy Coconut (and it smells lovely!) but there are also Juicy Watermelon or Ripe Mango flavours available as well.

Finally the shopping, well I am being totally spoiled this year aren’t I? Both new Pokemon games but I’m not allowed to play them yet as they are part of my Christmas gifts, D pre-ordered them as they were at a really good price on Amazon.

Please don’t worry if you don’t see me online much after Christmas, I have so many books I want to read (post about that coming soon!) and now new games that I’ve been looking forward to as well. So pleased January is normally a quiet month! πŸ˜‰

I’ve been shopping again! With my Christmas obsession growing each year we decided it was about time to get a seasonal duvet set and I found this one in the right size and a good price too so D got it for me.

We were also looking at Christmas jumpers when I found they’ve started making really nice Christmas T-Shirts as well this year. Both of us find jumpers too hot most of the time so we decided on some T-Shirts for a couple of things we have on next month. The one you can see best is D’s one, I have 2 hiding under that πŸ˜€

This is the first box from the Hotel Chocolat tasting club subscription that we took out!

We’ve decided to be kind of good and have put them away for over Christmas as that means we should have 2 boxes of these so wont have to buy any and we’ll have luxury chocolates to enjoy this year and can avoid the usual Quality Street Vs Roses decision πŸ˜€

Another day of exciting post!

This is my Mrs Brimbles Stationery Advent Box and isn’t it cute! Unlike most other advent calendars this one is a series of paper bags, each one with it’s day number on a sticker holding the bag closed. I’ve seen these displayed by pegging them along string and they look really pretty like that but I am going to pile them all up at the base of our little tree and then, when the legs of that tree are finally revealed, it will be nearly time to open the gifts under the big/main tree πŸ˜€

For now though, the best place for this is high on a shelf where only D can reach it as I have little self control, especially over something like this and I really cant wait to see what everything is (yes, I have already given each ‘parcel’ a thorough fingertip inspection πŸ˜‰
