Anyone Need a Holiday?

    I don’t know many people who, when asked ‘do you need a holiday’ would answer ‘no’. Even if they didn’t feel like they actually needed one, I am sure they would happily agree they would like one. So in this post I am going to take a look at the many and varied…

A Birthday at My Local Club

    It’s my birthday this month and I recently received a kind letter from my local RSL Club reminding me that I can swipe my membership card any time in July and receive $20 worth of food or beverages as a Birthday Gift. This will give me a free meal and I intend to…

Kid’s Competitions

    I grew up in the 50s and 60s addicted to all kinds of competitions (yes, I started early!). Back then there were colouring competitions, guessing competitions, raffles, lucky dips and ‘spot the difference’ competitions among many others (found especially at school and church fetes). My favourites were in the kids sections of the…

FREEBIES

Stay Tuned

    Our television gave out a loud crackling noise the other day and then the screen went completely blank. In desperation, while it was being repaired we turned our digital radio on and tuned it to smoothfm 95.3 (www.smoothfm.com.au/). I was constantly amazed listening to callers ring in throughout the day trying to identify…

The Prize Pool

    It’s been a bit quiet on the winning side for a few weeks so I thought I might ask myself a few questions. What are the prizes I would most like to win? Prizes are becoming (along with ease of entry) one of the main criteria I use to decide which competitions to…
