I promise this isn’t an April Fool’s joke! I have a lovely treat for my readers. I joined the Netflix Stream Team at the end of last year and every now and again I bring you Netflix news. One of the new series that they commissioned last year was Turbo FAST and there are a few new episodes due to go live on Friday, 4th April next.

To celebrate, Netflix have given me a 6 month subscription and Turbo FAST goody bag to give away to one lucky reader. To qualify all you need to do is to take a look at the rafflecopter panel below and enter once, or you can enter all three times to increase your chances.
Best of Luck!

What would happen if I had no food left in my house today? Continue reading
