The Best Of Times With Kettler

Summer is approaching guys, this bank holiday was just a blip in an other wise sunny radar. Summer is my most favourite time of year and one of the main reasons is just because it’s so social. I feel like I see a lot more of everybody in summer. Nobody wants to be stuck inside so the diary just seems to get filled up in an instant – it’s great! Kettler have challenged me to think about who it is around me that brings me my best of times and then we are giving you guys the chance to get together with the people closest to you and perfect those barbecuing skills by winning a BBQ from the Everdure range By Heston Blumenthal.

So looking back on the last couple of years my best of times definitely come from being with my little girls, having three little crazy’s around make every picnic/BBQ/day out so much more of an adventure. Of corse they are usually running rings around me but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

They were the obvious answer of corse you guys know that me and the girls love getting out and about and exploring so next on my list would be my friends! These girls know who they are, some of them have been my best friends since as early as primary school. All amazing in there own way’s, this bunch have been there for me throughout so much and we can usually be found giggling or eating! Food friends are the best of friends.

Last but not least a special mention to my family; I’m not lucky enough to have my family living just up the road so I can pop in for a cuppa when ever I please but we get together as often as possible and when ever we do it’s great. We all have that one person in our lives who we have an unbreakable bond with, who we turn to whenever and even if you don’t speak to them every day or even every week nothing changes they’re just there for you when ever you need them. That person for me is my dad he definitely makes the best of times even when he’s chewing my ear off over cycling, time trials etc.

Enough of the soppy I don’t do emotion – onto the competition.

As I mentioned above I have one of the Force barbecue from the Everdure range By Heston Blumenthal for you guys to win, it’s such an amazing prize I kind of want to enter my own competition (I wont, I promise). Not only does it look pretty damn cool, it’s a clever bit of kit sure to make you the barbecue king or queen!

Some facts (because we all love a fact); it’s a 2 burner gas barbecue with super fast ignition which leaves it ready to cook on within 5 minutes! It’s made from die-cast aluminium which wont rust and it’s worth a whopping £599. Yep I thought so you’re sold… enter below to be in with the chance of winning. T&C’s apply, the competition will end midnight on the 5th of June.  The winner will be announced on my facebook page.

    I have a grey and white kitten who wears a little collar with a bell – I call her Tinkerbell – but her real name is Angelica Violet Skye and I love to hear her enjoying life rushing in and out from the garden, chasing everything, climbing on the shed and settling to sleep when she’s tired with her gentle purrs!

    Birds coming into the garden. Two of the blackbirds are so brave they come in through the patio doors and perch on the arms of chairs waiting for food. It’s lovely watching the sparrow babies growing up , the blue tits performing acrobatics, the doves preening each other and the wood pigeons eating on the bird table until they fall asleep on the seed.

    I love that the wild pheasants have brought their chicks into our garden 2 years in a row now! The pheasants come for the birds seed and bread, but it’s lovely that they trust us enough to bring their babies now πŸ™‚

    The little things that make me happy are cuddles first thing in the morning with my girls and massive ‘super snuggles’ (that’s what we call them) when I get home from work in the evening. Reading my girls bed time stories when they are tucked up in bed. Cuddling on the sofa with my husband, sharing a bottle of wine + nibbles for movie night. Going for nature walks as a family and playing in the garden in the summer sunshine.

    We love spending a Sunday afternoon, playing board games or watching a film cuddled up on the sofa, just spending a few hours of quality time together x

    Spending time with my daughter and making her smile and her telling me jokes and making me smile are the best times in the world.
