Winner. Fun Christmas Party At The Venue



A phone call telling me I had been picked as the winner took us off to the Venue Nr Oswestry for a fun night of festive frolics. 
I had won a party night table for 5 people which included a 3 course meal and party disco. 
What a lovely night we had along with Kate, Helen and Chris.  
The meal was absolutely delicious. Starters was parsnip soup with honey and warm crusty bread. 
For main some had traditional Turkey but me having been a vegetarian for many years know had a little parcel of parsnip and red onion and goats cheese along with all the usual veg.
For pudding we all had different things, mind was a yummy cheesecake.
The whole evening was lovely, we all really enjoyed ourselves.
I can't recommended the fun enough defiantly. 10 out of 10.  A big thank you to the venue for picking me out as the winner and also for my wonderful balloon, I love it.

Fred



My Best Friend

You smiled with your eyes,
Laughed with your tail,
And loved with your heart.

How we miss this little dog so very much.

Prizes 2015

I love to do competition's, it's a hobby I really enjoy doing over the last few years we have won a few so I though this year so I remember all we have won I would make a blog of them.
January 5th 2015 -  we managed to win the local papers spot the ball competition. We were meant to have won a snail boot remover, but as the story goes it was accidentally sold before we picked it up. It was a prize from the British Iron Works just off the A5  outside of Oswestry. The British Iron Works gave Simon a voucher for £45 to spend around the showroom.
It was a terribly hard decision there was so much lovely items on show. Eventually  after much deliberation he choose the first prize of the year an US army Landrover which was incredibly detailed. A lovely prize priced at £45.99. They let him off with the 99p. What a wonderful start to the year. 



Next prize was another win on spot the ball this time we won a fire basket and made it in the local paper. The fire basket will be handy for those chilly winter nights.
This one was won Valentine's week so smiles all around.


Yet another win took us to the Theater Seven in Shrewsbury to watch one man Breaking Bad. It was quite bazaar but also funny.
I have written a separate blog about it. Just type in on search box Breaking Bad. The tickets were around £19.50 each.


Next One turned out to be a bargain Simon won the tickets for the HRH Prog Rock Weekend In North Wales. There was a great line up of bands all weekend. I am pleased to say we met some wonderful friends there. Happy Days. These tickets where worth £600.






Another  win were we headed to North Wales was for the SiFi Convention here we saw some sights. 



Yet again another win saw us heading of to the NEC for the Minitura Show. This was an amazing exhibition of the miniature world around us.

Guess who won the Rallyfest tickets. Yipee

So excited to have won theses ticket. Rally Fest Wales. :)
