I’ve always been a fan of Trunki.
I saw them first on Dragons’ Den of course, but then worked for a few years in the nursery industry and got to know the team pretty well. I’ve whizzed down the slide in their offices, and enjoyed the odd glass of wine, (*coughs*), with them at international trade shows. They’re good guys.
I’m really pleased then to have a lovely giveaway from them today, to celebrate their new project with Gatwick Parking. It’s the perfect partnership because let’s be honest, have you been to an airport in the last few years and not seen a Trunki? I haven’t.
In collaboration with Gatwick Parking, Trunki have put together a promotion to try and get over that horrible back to school feeling – you know the one where you’re made to spend £45 on school shoes that your ungrateful child will have grown out of in three months? The idea is to share you holiday snaps for a chance to win Trunki goodies, thus reliving those happy times and generally feeling less sulky as a result.
You can find out more about that competition here.
I have my very own competition though, so if all of your summer holiday photos are of you sobbing into a glass of gin then you still have the chance to win a rather fabulous bundle of Trunki goodies, (in blue or pink), plus a pair of funky JVC kids’ headphones, worth over £85 altogether.
If you’d like the chance to win this glorious bundle of Trunki funtimes, just do your thang in the Rafflecopter widget below. The competition will close at 5pm on September 10th. Good luck!

I have gone to the park greeting and meeting many on my way,
I saw the flowers that have bloomed from the flower bud
And have sprung into life,
I saw the once covered icy streams that have come back to life
And I saw many birds that caught my eye
As they spread their wings and flyed by
And I saw owners pulled by dogs in a line,
Their barking midst the passing of time.

I feel bad for saying it, but the best bit was having 4 weeks to myself while my son stayed with his Dad : )
Spending time with the kids and going to our first CenterParcs!!
My favourite bit about summer has been spending time with family in South Wales.
Growing my own tomoatoes & strawberries for the first time.
the days off work where i have spent my time with my boy, even if it was pouring with rain, we had a laugh :)
We went to Center Parcs for the first time and had a fab time. I only booked it a few weeks before we went so the wait didn’t drag on
Taking the kids out and seeing their smiles when we reach the destination :) priceless
Our holiday in Cornwall was brilliant
Going for walks along the beach and Blackpool prom
We went to Berwick for the weekend over the bank holiday and found a little cove on the beach with only 1 other family on and spent the whole day playing and having fun with our little girl in the rock pools and water. It was amazing weather and great to be on our own…
Going days out
A family party that was on a dry day so we spent much of it in the garden!
We walked up Snowdon, lovely weather and beautiful scenery x
