I never thought of myself as a very lucky person and so I never bothered entering competitions.
Then I watched a Derren Brown TV show called The Secret of Luck. In it the main guy in it never won anything and saw himself as unlucky. One of the other chaps in the town was perceived as being very lucky because he kept winning things and the only difference between the two was one entered competitions and took chances while the other man didn’t.
Something about this obviously stayed with me because shortly afterwards, just before Ez Bear was born I entered a Twitter competition to win a years supply of nappies and to my immense surprise I actually won. It was the best prize I could have possibly received at that point and the timing was perfect.
I decided to try to win something again and so started entering competitions that sounded interesting. Since September 2011 I have won, a years supply of nappies, 3 rather posh reusable nappies, cuddly baby toys, an inflatable ride on horse for the kids, the Nuby Mummy blogger competition, a bespoke photo album and today in the post I got a little bag of marbles!
Obviously there is a theme to my awesome prizes, they are all kiddo related. This is odd because I’m also entering competitions that I would like to win personally but I guess that’s just how things work. In light of this I am going to ask you for a wee favour…
In the sidebar I have added a new button and, for this one post, it is also below…
I would really appreciate it if you could take a minute to follow the link and please vote for me. I know my chances of winning are teeny, but I’m learning that if I don’t take chances and enter competitions or put myself forward, then I never win anything. In return for your vote here is a photo of my tiny lucky
oddball charm, thank you lovely readers 🙂
