Christmas is coming early…..

Although I absolutely love Christmas, and literally smother my house in Christmas decorations every year, preparations do not start until at least 1st of December. Anybody wanting to get into the Christmas spirit earlier than this is quite welcome to but do not be playing Mariah Carey within my earshot, or asking me to pick off a Christmas menu. And no I haven’t started my bloody Christmas shopping yet, it’s October! So you can imagine how torn I was when a magazine asked me if they can photograph my house all decorated for Christmas…..next week. Yes Ilona Hadfield I can hear you laughing from here.

So this year Christmas is coming early to Holly Cottage as I haven’t got the energy to decorate, undecorate and then decorate again. And I’m kicking off with my first Christmas present. I have teemed up with the lovely people at Blinds2Go to offer one of you lucky people the chance to win a window blind of your choice worth up to £150.

Competition Rules

So to be in with a chance to win all you need to do is head over to Instagram and follow these simple rules (I know not everyone uses Instagram but it would be worth downloading the app just for this):

  1. Follow me @mrswpics and @blinds2go
  2. Post a picture of the window you would like a new blind for
  3. Include the hashtag #blinds2gomakeover in your post and tag at least two friends
  4. You can post as many pics as you like but you must tag new friends each time

The competition will run until 21st November when a winner will be selected at random. The winner will then be contacted and asked to choose their new blind from the Blinds2Go website and provide the necessary dimensions etc. so that their blind can be made and delivered in time for Christmas.

It’s as simple as that so get snapping and posting those window pics and in the meantime I’ll start putting up my Christmas decorations… Ho Ho Ho!
