Something a little bit different today.

As some of you know I have been entering competitions, not winning, but entering.  Anything that I have won has been as part of a mass giveaway, 1000+ prizes that sort of thing.  For example, I've won an inflatable strawberry, a single packet of crisps, a packet of KitKats.  I did win an iPad Mini but that took over a year of comping for up to 3 hours per day.

Today I came across a competition running on Pinterest.  Now I have had my Pinterest account for a good 12 months, used it occasionally but it never grabbed me in the way it seemed to grab others.  At one point I was going to shut it down as other people had somehow found a way to pin to it, the same pinned image was appearing several times a day, as soon as I removed it someone else would pin it.

But back to the reason for today's post.

Confused.com and Nectar Card are running a competition on Pinterest, you have to create a board showing how you would spend a million Nectar points.  Here is my board #pinforpoints

There is a top prize of 60,000 Nectar points available to bloggers so I thought I would chance my arm.  I have to describe why I have chosen some of the items I have pinned.  So here goes.

I have chosen the laptop as I need a new one for my studies, I am still coaxing my existing one along so that it, and my printer, last as long as they can.  A new laptop means that I would need a new copy of Microsoft Office for Students as I would not be able to transfer the licence for my existing laptop across.

I would like the radio so that I can listen to it whilst I am studying.

My Mum bought a Kenwood Chef mixer when she got engaged to my Dad nearly 44 years ago and it is still going strong.  I have always wanted one but have never been able to afford to buy one.  I do enjoy baking but currently have to mix everything by hand which is satisfying but time consuming.

I have added the breadmaker as I have just been to my parents and theirs has broken after many years of faithful service.

I now need to include the link so that my entry can be found


I have entered PIN FOR POINTS from confused.com

Good luck to everyone who has entered.
