Did you win the £1000 luxe family weekend?


When it’s time to run a Muddy competition, I veer between the smug joy of offering brilliant prizes for Muddy Stilettos readers and poisonous jealousy at not being able to win any of them myself. I know, aren’t I the charmer?!

But amongst the bile and bluster, once the bunny’s been pulled out of the proverbial hat, I’m incredibly excited for the winner, and I love the moment when they find out that they’re the one who’s won the diamond necklace, or the shopping spree, or – as in this case – the £1000 family weekend for five at a truly stonking Luxury Family Hotel.

So let’s get to it peeps. The winner is….. James Pinniger! Get in touch James and I’ll give you all the info you need to claim your luxe weekend.

No new competition next month peeps, as it’s time for the Muddy Awards – I KNOW!!!! – so don’t forget to start pulling together your list of your favourite places, businesses and people and support your plucky indies. The Muddy giveaways will be back in June, once I’ve stopped rocking in a dark corner.
