 Week ending 3/3/2017 

I’m linking up with CassEmma  and Becky in this week’s `Five Fabulously Frugal Things`

#1 Entered - You’ll receive a £250 Oxford Street gift card so that you can hit your favourite shops together, treating her to whatever her heart desires and then you will enjoy a tumble down the rabbit hole with Sanderson’s unique Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea and a glass of Perrier-Jouet for two.

and about 1,000 other free competitions. I had taken a break from comping but I do miss getting the odd win.

#3 My fabulous flowers for a fiver, I got two bunches of yellow sticker tulips for £4 and a bunch of normal priced daffodils for £1.

Ceremony of the Keys

The Ceremony of the Keys is the traditional locking up of the Tower of London.

Halt Who comes there? A question asked every evening at the Tower of London.
Set amidst the mighty battlements of this ancient historic fortress, The Ceremony of the Keys is one of the oldest and most colourful surviving ceremonies of its kind, having been enacted every night without fail for over 700 years.

There are no toilet or refreshment facilities available.
Photography is not permitted during any part of the ceremony.
Tickets are free, however there is a £1 fee to cover the booking administration costs.

Tickets are available 12 months in advance.

Tip - If you miss out on tickets for March next year then remember to apply on 1st April 2017 for April 2018 tickets. Put a reminder in your diary.

While your in London why not go and see to the Harry Potter Studio.  My review is here:

No incentives were received for these posts, they are my own opinion and all tickets to Harry Potter Studio I paid for.

Fabulous Flowers For A Fiver

Busy week but still time to get some fabulous flowers for a fiver. Two bunches of stunning tulips from Tesco.

Yellow stickers bargains at £2 a bunch and a bunch of daffodils for £1.

Fabulous Flowers
I put some in a vase and some in a storm glass so that half the flowers would be higher than others. I placed the smaller vase in front of the storm glass so it looks like one large display.

Vase and Storm Glass - then I put the vase in the front

They are pretty spring colours to welcome in March.

Stunning flowers to brighten the day
