One of my favorite hobbies is entering contests. I enter a lot and earlier today a courier arrived and threw a parcel on my front porch (and ran as fast as he could as he could hear the three barking dogs on the other side of the door...haha) ..hmmm....so I opened it and apparently I won a book. Of course I don't remember entering the contest to win it....but on further investigation in the mailer package, I also discovered there is a cover letter. I won this prize from The Penguin Group Canada and Chatelaine magazine. The title of the book is "This Charming Man". It is by Marion Keyes and is 885 pages long so it is a big book. I think I will wait until after Christmas to start this one!! Thanks Chatelaine!
Last week Canada Post brought me a package from a contest win also. It is from the Danone Yogurt company and is a very nice soccer ball. It seems like it is really good quality. I recently entered one of their contests also. This prize came very quickly. I haven't taken a photo of it as it doesn't have air in it yet. The kids will enjoy this in the yard come summer... Thanks to the Danone Yogurt folks for this lovely prize!
I also won a contest from Nestle Favorites Chocolate November 7 which I had hoped would arrive before Christmas but it doesn't look like that is going to happen...they are apparently backed up with their contest win send outs and are estimating mid January before it comes. Too bad on that one!!
And last but not least, I won diapers from Huggies this week playing their Enjoy the Ride instant win contest. That will probably take awhile to arrive also but we can always use diapers around here!!
