Anniversary Competition Part 1

Okay I am being horribly premature but frankly my boys have their beady eyes on one of the prizes and at risk of it depleting further the competition NEEDS to go live.   On the 27th of November my blog will be turning 1.  A number of companies have kindly offered prizes so you can celebrate with me.  This bundle is the house/pet, two further ones are planned and the prizes get even bigger.  But for now we have four lovely prizes for one winner (who hopefully has a dog or knows one!), the prizes are:

A Baking Mad Bundle 



With plenty to inspire even the most lacklustre baker!  With green icing, blue icing, orange flavoured chocolate buttons, sprinkles, three different flavourings, one lot of black food colouring, chocolate to melt, edible letters… you will be very well catered for here!  You can some jazz up your current cakes to something very interesting with this selection.

So much I needed to take two pictures!


The flavouring comes in Lemon, Rum and Strawberry (12 bottles of each!).  I could quite happily munch a lemon cake right now with my evening cuppa (my McVitie's Sticky Toffee Apple Cake I am eating instead did not live up to my high expectations!).  There are also 12 bottles of black food colouring included too.


A Monster Pet Supplies Dog Mattress

With it so cold and miserable its nice to think you can bring some extra comfort to your pooch!  Even if you do not have a pet dog yourself am sure a cat would be quite happy stretched out on this instead.  I know my two cats are quite sad it has to be shipped out.  I am leaving it in the packet safe from their prying eyes!  The luxury deep filled quilted mattress is 27” so more suited for a little dog I would think.  They are made to fit a plastic bed, so hopefully you have one of them already!  But if not am sure your pet could sleep on it as it is.  It’s that soft and comfy I defy them not to just collapse asleep on it…

An OXO 3 in 1 adjustable potato ricer

This nifty tool worth £30 will revolutionise your mashed potato!  But it has lots of other fabulous applications, so very versatile tool for any kitchen.  Impress everyone by making chunky applesauce or your own tomato sauce (my boys go through lots of the Heinz variety I think I would love one of these myself!)


Picture courtesy of Lakeland as it shows the ricer in action! Am getting hungry looking at this...

An Umbra Bird Feeder

This very stylish bird feeder will be the envy of all your neighbours.  Priced at £29.99, it is too fancy for a common sparrow!  But everyone will be welcome here, the modern design perfect for contemporary gardens.  Provided by find me a gift the ideal place to stock up ready for Christmas, with lots of novelty and practical presents to please everyone in the family.


To enter simply complete the rafflecopter below by the 17th of November.

  27. Happy Anniversary & thanks for the great prizes. I'm struggling between the baking bundle & the potato ricer (I'm a sucker for a gadget!) I could make lots of lovely goodies when I visit the grand children or they visit me, but with the fabby gadget I could have fun! lol. Then there's the bird feeder that would be great for the garden & my little flying visitors that I love to sit in the window watching.
