Hi All.
So since being out of work I picked up a little time filler that is commonly known as Comping.
Although the wins have not always been big they have always been welcome. If we do not put them to use they have been gifted to those that are in need of or would love them. Winning a prize in itself is exhilarating but being able to share it with others has been the best feeling.
Though the trigger for today’s short story is that I just took delivery from our local postie/star track driver. Was not expecting anything and that the parcel had my name on it already got the ticker pumping lol.
Upon opening the medium sized and reasonably weighted box I can say I was absolutely delighted to have received a large range of Australian made beauty and skin care products! Close to $200 worth and items that I’d generally consider a luxury and not be able to purchase for myself. The company info and prize details had been outlined in a letter inside the box and I have to say that receiving the unexpected deliveries are so much more exciting and a nice change than waiting for prizes to turn up that you have received a phone call or email about.
It’s put a positive spin on my day and I must say I’m looking forward to treating my skin a little for the next few months going by the quantity received.
Have a great day everyone and I look forward to hearing about any great deliveries you’ve received unexpectedly.

  • It is wonderful to read your story. I had a comment published in a magazine that I subscribe to this year. I had entered months ago and forgotten all about it. I had not read the magazine month where my comment was published so when I received the parcel containing an $80 cook book, and I was very confused. I went back through the magazines and found my published comment. The prize corresponded.
