Introducing ZeekMinder & Win £50 Credit

I must confess I am not the best at remembering important dates, I usually only notice when someone puts it up as a facebook status, by then its all very last minute seeing as the occasion is already midway through happening!  We have a January wedding anniversary that apparently is less likely to be forgotten (then eight other months of the year) according to research conducted by gift card marketplace Zeek.


However I have still managed to forgot it a few times over our nine years of marriage, one year my mum reminded me and another year a good friend who lives away, each time it was on the day itself though so I did not have much time to look like I had remembered all by myself!!!  I was cheeky though and rang hubbie at work and still managed to make him feel guilty he forgot… 

ZeekMinder is a really useful service that allows you to add all your important dates and occasions with the aim of keeping everyone out of the doghouse.  No sulking wives or husbands because a special day has gone unnoticed.  It’s simple and easy to add your special someone’s, so you have no excuse anymore.  I plan on pointing hubbie in the right direction, after all happy wife, happy life and all that haha!


Since the children have come along our focus seems to be more towards them, its not that I don’t want to remember I just have so many more distractions in my life.  When we first got together we celebrated everything in style, it was nice to have lots of fuss and attention.  These days if hubbie is lucky he might get a hastily wrapped tolberone, although I would love to think of something more suitable (like a gift voucher for his favourite store) and hopefully with the Zeek reminder system I will have more time to get myself organised and win lots of brownie points!!!

To celebrate the launch of Zeekminder, I have have teamed up with gift-card market place Zeek to offer one lucky reader the chance to win £50 credit to spend on the site. To enter couldn’t be easier – simply fill in the form below including sharing your special occasion fail.  The competition will close on the 24th of September.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yes, a relatives birthday. Relative went into a huff. We had been close when younger. I had had so many changes in regards to work, change of workplace,hours, travelling etc, etc. I think I was just lacking in energy and missed date for a few days. Wish it hadn't happened, as do love relative dearly.

    Wish Employer had been more supportive and considerate in regards to impact of frequent changes on the employees. Especially given that service was Health Care. Family Friendly Policies are relevant for those with and without children etc. Needed support and company of loved ones. Yet work commitments had been increased due to major changes within Organisation etc.

    I believe that Personal Development, Annual Review etc should be appropriate time and place to discuss work Life Balance. Family Friendly Policy etc, etc. Carers also need support, and should be offered and discussed at a convenient time and place :- In privacy, not in work enviroment.
