And the winner is........


Last night I sat down to draw the winners of the most recent giveaway when my internet decided to crash at 5 minute intervals so i eventually gave up!

This morning I have decided to draw names out of a hat as it's easier and keeping you lot waiting isn't fair.

So for this giveaway liking, sharing and making me laugh earned you entries. All those entries turned into your names being copy and pasted onto pages of paper which I ripped up, folded and popped in Charlie's sunhat.

The first name to come out of the hat and therefore the winner of the Peachy Green nappy - brand new but from my very own stash is.........

And the winner of the Tiny Nippers voucher code, and the person who had me chuckling the most is
Vikki please can you get in touch with me via my Facebook messaging tab and Deb can you please email Tiny Nippers directly with the subject heading Broody News Blog Giveaway and they will issue you with a code to use on thier site. Please be patient though as they are currently away but will get back to you ASAP.

Hope you enjoy your prizes ladies. More Giveaway's will be happening soon so please keep an eye on my Facebook page :D

Pot Of Dreams - Saving for BUTLINS!! :D

       After all the tests and doctors appointments and struggling with trying to conceive the last few months and the ups and downs of hubby's redundancy and beginning his new job I was distraught gutted when he said we wouldn't be taking our annual trip to Butlins this year. I do completely understand though. He's doing his dream job now but with that came a slash in wages and a change in lifestyle but I said to him I would definitely like to go next year.
       So we will hopefully. Although we normally go September time Charlie will be starting 'proper' school next year so we have decided to aim for July 2014 instead.

Paying for the holiday itself isn't necessarily the biggest issue though. You can pay for the holiday by paying a deposit and then smaller instalments, which is how we will do it. It's the spending money! We self cater, plus we love playing in the arcade. We always spend a day out in Minehead's town and have a nice lunch and get a few things to take home with us. So John will pay for the holiday - my mission is to raise the cash for spending money. I've bought a 'pot of dreams'from ebay and I'm going to put a bit into it each month and also sell some things on local selling pages and pop the money straight into it. It soon adds up.

       Last year the in-laws came down for the day but next year they will be coming for the whole holiday! Charlie cannot wait. He remembers billy and cannot wait to go on the big slide in Bob's yard. Last year he was poorly whilst we were there so we didn't get to do anything in the evening so I hope we get more time to see the entertainment next yer. I've popped a couple of photo's below of Charlie at Butlins last year :D.

ROLL ON 2014. It's going to be a good year :D.

Charlie and Billy, Billy got into trouble just after this picture was taken as you aren't supposed to take pictures with the characters. Woopsies. We didn't know but we do now! Sorry Billy x
