For those of you who missed out on the metal bedstead competition: we’ve got another great prize to offer you! This time we’re teaming up with Direct Line home insurance  to give you the chance to win one of two B&Q vouchers worth £50!

Like most people these days, I review all of our insurance policies annually. Looking at all the options can be time consuming but definitely worth doing as it can save a lot of money. I use the comparison sites first to get the general lay of the land and then I look at the companies that are not listed on comparison sites. To date I have generally gone with insurers that are not listed on comparison sites as they can offer tweaks and deals that meet our needs exactly.

Direct Line is not listed on any comparison site and is one of the most trusted insurers in the UK. They realise the value that we put on the contents of our homes – that’s why they are offering a prize of a couple of £50 of B&Q vouchers for two lucky winners to add something special to their own home.

    I ran the draw this morning. Mechanical and impartial as always.

    The two winners, in the order in which they “came out of the hat” are:

    1 – g6ztz on May 11

    2 – Sarah on May 8

    Each receives a £50 B&Q voucher. Congratulations to you both.

    Fiona will be in contact with you today to get your mailing addresses and then notify the sponsors.

    Let’s hope the prizes are delivered quickly.

    Thanks to everybody who took the trouble to post an entry. It’s a bit of fun and, we hope, enjoyable.

    To those who did not win, keep your eyes peeled for the next draw.

    I would buy some colourful bedding plants for the pots on my new etagere; they will finish it off a treat.

    Just moved house and are busy making us a whole new garden from scratch ~ A £50 voucher would help a lot to get our veggie beds going :-)Fingers and paws all crossed here !

    So many things I need for the garden, now the water has abated & the mud has finally dried so a £%) voucher would be a huge help. I never win anything so I don’t feel so bad about being a late entry…..LOL !!
