Britains Big Farm Competition

Is the gloomy weather getting to you? I know I’m suffering, and finding it hard to drag myself out of bed while it’s still so dark outside.

I shouldn’t really moan as I’ve spent the majority of this month in the glorious Florida sunshine. Although memories of the sun were soon long gone when I arrived back into Gatwick and had to tackle the snow in my sandals!

Well if like me and your be glad when spring comes around, why not get your kids in the mood early with the new Spring 2013 Range from Britains.

Regular readers will already know of the Toybuzz love for Britians range of scale model realistic and authentic Farm Toys, and the newest additions simply add to that.

My Jacob still loves crashing around with his Blue Britains Land Rover Defender. Well this time around they have teamed the Land Rover with a trailer and Skid Steer attachments to make a set which gives you everything you need to get all those jobs around the farm done.

Another very exciting new addition to the Big Farm range is their first ever JCB – The JCB 550-80.

This scale model of the powerful loading machine features all the characteristics you’d expect from the real thing like removable attachments and pallets.

The JCB 550-80 would make a valuable addition to your youngsters Big Farm collection, helping out with all the big and heavy jobs like shifting the hay bales.

My Boys simply love the Britains Big Farm rage as the vehicles are simple to use, and easy to play with. However they are so realistic, it makes the playtime so much more fun.

Competition

Once again Toybuzz is happy to be working with Tomy and their Britains Big Farm range, and hosting a wonderful competition with a prize worth £77 to give away.

Britains have kindly offered us a prize pack containing:

1 x Land Rover and Skid Steer Set

1 x JCB Loadall 550-80

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below letting me know your best tips to get over those winter blues.

Competition closes Midnight 15th February.

    I find the best way for me to get over the winter blues is to do my competitions. When I don’t feel like getting out of bed, I think of my hobby, have a cup of tea and spend a couple of hours on the computer before breakfast. It really works for me!!

    I try to get over the winter blues by having friends around the house with the kids to play board games and watch movies and things like that to have a laugh, also to plan what we all are going to get up too over spring and summer.

    I clean out a cupboard, drawer or chest that I’ve been meaning to do for ages. If there’s anything that I no longer use, I put it in a box to give to a local charity.

    When I’ve finished, I give myself a (metaphorical) pat on the back and, yes, I actually stand back and admire it looking all sparkly clean and organised. Lovely!

    Afterwards, I flop onto the sofa with a fluffy rug with the cats for strokes, hugs and kisses. Their gentle purring and exquisite beauty are both joyful and deeply relaxing.

    I like to have a big spring clean (okay so it’s still Winter!) by pulling everything out of the wardrobes which keeps you busy, keeps you warm and you can have great fun trying on all your clothes and dreaming about all the exotic places you would like to wear them.

    After going out all wrapped up warm walking the dog with kids, we return home snuggle up under a big fluffy blanket, put on a good film and have a lovely hot chocolate made with hot milk and marshmallows. Then I cook for tea a nice roast, makes everyone feel all warm, cosy and happy again. After that what winter blues? :-)

    Start a new hobby, I just started sewing dolls and it is so cosy to snuggle up in a warm room and make something while outside seems so inhospitable. It makes you feel good when create something with your hands and gets you motivated to step out the house to go buy and discover new crafting goodies!

    I love to cook and bake in HoniesKitchen and to get over the Winter Blues, I turn my attention to comforting foods that keep me and my family smiling. I use the slow cooker more and also make home-made pies and dishes like lasagne and baked rice pudding all in Stoneware ( I have a lot of Stoneware). There’s nothing muffins, oozing with thick syrupy toppings, quick and easy chocolate puddings topped with rich chocolate sauce, served with whipped vanilla cream or ice-cream.

    See, I feel better already just talking about it!

    Wrap up warm, lots of layers are fun! Then get out in the fresh air, as long as it’s dry its absolutely fine. The ducks in the park appreciate the bread just as much (if not more) in the winter.

    Take up a winter activity its a great way to look forward to winter, rather than hating it. Try and take a trip skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing for example or if you can’t afford that try ice skating at your local rink or do some winter photography. Embrace winter, don’t let it be your enemy!
