I never ever win anything. It’s a sad fact of life, Lady Luck doesn’t ever really bless me with wins. Before baby J arrived I spent a lot of time entering Facebook competitions, and a lot in the early days. To be honest, I’ve always been of the opinion that the competitions are a bit of a con, used to just increase page likes. That was until I won!
Yup, I won an actual Facebook competition. Me. I can tell you I actually jumped for joy, I’d won a brand new pram. This was amazing, I’d only felt a little bit pants a few days previous at having to reuse my pram from M. There is nothing wrong with that pram, I cleaned it up lovely before Jonah arrived. I know it’s my old one though and felt it looked a little grubby. So winning a pram was ace. Not just any pram though, I won a Greentom upp. If you’re not familiar with this pram, it’s the first pram ever made 100% out of recycled material.
We love the pram. It’s so lightweight and lovely. It’s ridiculous compact when folded up too.
It came with a travel cot, has a seat that reclines for parent facing or world facing and then converts in to an every day stroller. It’s lovely and a relief to know that this will carry me all the way through.
I’d already ordered a snooze shade because the weather was improving and I didn’t fancy cooking the baby. The snooze shade and the pram arrived at the same time, which was great because it meant we could do this…
M loves pushing baby J in the pram and checking on him to make sure he’s okay. He really is the best big brother and loves baby J unconditionally. Even if he has almost broken the baby a few times… That’s another blog post though.
So yes, I won a pram. It’s really quite nifty and it certainly cheered me up no end. To steal a phrase, you’ve got to be in it to win it. I know I will be entering all the completions from now on!
Disclaimer- I won this pram in a Facebook competition, I just wanted to tell you all how awesome the pram was and how chuffed I was to win something.
