News Flash- Winner!

Real-time

Yeehaa! I have some exciting news to tell you! Well, it might not be that exciting for you but I'm extra excited and super thrilled because I received a call yesterday from Netspeed, our internet provider, to let me know that I was their winner in a competition they recently ran on their Facebook page. I don't enter too many competitions and very rarely win anything but I struck the jackpot this time! And all I had to do was tag someone on their Facebook page; easy peasey.

And what did I win? I won the latest 12.9" 64GB Apple iPad Pro worth $1,519.00! How awesome is that? I don't have an iPad, I do most of my work on my laptop and have my smartphone for general surfing etc. I don't see that changing too much but I know David has had his eye on the latest model iPad for awhile and especially since he recently started watching movies on his old one. I have a feeling I might not see quite as much of this prize as I think. And I don't mind- I'm just going to milk it for all it's worth in the meantime- it's lucky that I have a computer geek for a hubby, he'll be able to set it  up for me which will earn him lots of brownie points that can be exchanged for movie time!


So thankyou very much Netspeed, you made my day....no, in fact, as I said to them when they called, you made my month! I think it's some sort of karma though, because I recommend Netspeed to anyone and everyone at every opportunity I get. Netspeed has been a God send for us and has opened up our little world on the road.

If you'd like to know more about Netspeed, here's my blog I did on them when we first joined up early last year-  Into the Future with Netspeed

And if you'd like to hear some of the voice recording of when Netspeed phoned to let me know I was a winner it's here on their Facebook Page, a pinned post at the top (it may have gone if you're reading this is in a week or so)

ETA- It's arrived!

  4. Congratulations!My husband's old mini is fading, so I've been looking at the new ones and they look fabulous. Let us know how you like it. I've heard they take good photos, too, although your camera is better, I'm sure.

    1. Thanks Offstone, it arrived today (see added photo in the blog post). I've never won much in my life either so I was pretty tickled pink. Your day will come (of course you are entering competitions so you can win, aren't you? ;)
