It's grey and cold out there. We're feeling skint, overwhelmed and exhausted. And oh my goodness, we need a holiday. So instead of just reminiscing about holidays past, let's all try and win ourselves one to look forward to in 2018!
Yesterday I decided to enter a competition to win a holiday, because you never know...
And then I thought, what if I took a couple of minutes to enter a different competition every day - who knows, maybe we'd get lucky
Even better, I could tell all those other exhausted cash-poor time-poor mothers out there about these competitions too - and between us, one of us might just win a magical much-needed break.
So here's the plan... any time we find competitions, we'll share the links with you here and on Facebook...
Wishing us all the very best of holiday luck!
