Win a Pick Me Up Chocolate Giftset – April

I can't believe how nasty the weather is at the moment, we seem to be getting April showers and then a bit when it comes to the rain. However, to brighten up this Winning Wednesday I thought I would put together the chance for you to win a Pick Me Up Chocolate Giftset (or similar) from Thorntons' as they look absolutely delicious!

Now if your new around these parts you might wonder why no picture and why or similar am I going to be shortchanged in my prize?! The answer is no, I just cannot guarantee what will be available on the Thorntons' website when it comes time to order your prize. So I pick out something that looks full of delicious goodies and if it happens to be sold out when prize ordering time comes I pick something of the same (or higher) value!

However, to give you an idea, on the Thorntons' website at the time I write this post the Pick Me Up Giftset includes:

Milk Classic Collection (248g)
Classic Collection (123g)
Bag of Orange Crisp Chocolates (105g)
Viennese Bag (107g)
Milk Chocolate Block (90g)
Fudge Brownie Milk Chocolate Block (90g)
Alpini Bar (34g)
Caramel Truffle Chocolate Bar (34g)

(remember of course Thorntons can also change what's put in a set, but at least you have an idea).

So now prize explanation is over and done, how can you win? Well, all you need to do is leave me a comment below. You could tell me about your day, something you did at the weekend, a joke or what you had for dinner! Just make it a good old full sentence with more than 8 words to be in with your chance to win!

    Well yesterday it poured non stop so I did a bit of online shopping and treated my little baby chihuahu to a dress! It is so cute – looks like a long tee with a lacy frill! Now we just need warmth and sunshine so she can wear it!

  2. Jeanette Leighton

    I had sweet chilli chicken, new potatoes and cauliflower and broccoli cheese for dinner…. My dad is visiting so was lucky and had some to and enjoyed it

  3. A S,Edinburgh

    At the weekend I managed to get all my recycling bagged up and out, which given that it’s some distance to a bin for it takes some doing. It’s very satisfying to have it done, though.

  4. Emma Garratt

    I’ve been doing meal replacement and managed to lose 11lb in 11 days. I know it won’t continue at that rate but I’m so pleased… kids are having a takeaway tonight 😩😂

  5. Anthony Harrington

    Today I have been hanging wallpaper, I haven’t had wallpaper for years, was stunned that there are so many types these days, paste the wall, paste the paper, peel and stick! Anyway, I am am pleased with it, my Wife is very impressed with me and that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! (said in a manly voice! *cough*)

  6. Kim Styles

    Today I signed the contract to sell my late mums flat- that’s an end of an era – a bit emotional.

  7. Leila Benhamida

    Got a busy day with the kids visiting friends today. Back home enjoying a nice lasagne and quality time.

  8. kim neville

    Today has been hectic. Went to my baby grand daughter for cuddles then I did a long walk for my Fitbit challenges and had to carry shopping back as got carried away with chocolate bars lol 🙂

  9. melanie stirling

    I was fed up with my fringe going in my eyes so this morning I got my husband to trim it for me.I don’t know who was more nervous,me or him!

  10. MARIA ROGERS

    I have had 3 dental appointments in five days, it has knocked me for six as I have ME/CFS so a nice chocolate treat is on the cards, shame I have finished all my easter eggs already!

  11. Debbie K Clauer

    I love chocolate! This prize sounds like a very nice assortment.

  12. ellen beck

    Toady is the first day it has been really above freezing in some time. We have a woodburner as well as use the furnace, cleaned that all out and may be splitting more wood. It is like spring isnt coming yet!

  13. Solange

  17. Tania Atfield

    We pulled a wall down in our kitchen, messy and dusty now

  18. Emma Larkin

    A JOKE!😆

    A tortoise🐢 was mugged coming out of the bank by six snails 🐌. When the police asked him what had happened he said: “I don’t know, it all happened so fast!”

  19. Alica

    ooooh what a fantastic giveaway!! I lurve Thorntons! You really spoil us! 😀

  20. William Gould

    A horrible, grey day here, so we sorted a few things out. Moved to a good 2 year deal for the gas and electricity. Found a good 1 year fixed deal to move my ISA too in a couple of weeks. Paid the outstanding balance for our holiday. And my wife found and ordered some material to make a dress with!

  21. Rachel Craig

    We headed out as a family to the park to feed the ducks at the pond. Nice to get outdoors.

  22. Amanda Richardson

    Went cycling on Sunday with friends, stopping for lunch at a craft centre and then near the end of the ride stopping at the pub for a couple of drinks. Great day as it was actually dry and sort of warm. Did some gardening on Monday, but it’s not stopped raining since then!

  23. Nikki Hayes

    Looking forward to next week – we’re actually going to get some sun and 15C+ temperatures in our neck of the woods (Bristol) :o)

  24. Angela Treadway

    we had an english breakfast at a cafe x

  27. Elizabeth

    Went to see a great film, caught up with friends, had fun – then came back to find bad news in an email that’s made me really worried.

  28. Suzanne

    This week I’m getting a shipment t of hydrangeas and I’m so excited to plant them in my garden.

  29. Victoria K

    My day wasn’t very exciting- I went to work. The best part was I went fora walk this evening and it was sweater weather- Spring might be coming.

  30. Alice Gilkes

    I love chocolate, and you can never have too much of it. Especially Thorntons.

  31. DAWN WINSKILL

    I have been arranging a birthday treat for my partner – a trip to London to see a show and afternoon tea in Fortnum & Mason.

  35. lozzle77

    i have had the week off work and basically done nothing but watch boxsets and its been great

  36. Nicola Marshall

    Yesterday, I took my daughter to Manchester for a girly day. She cost me a fortune in the Lego & Disney store but it was a fab day out.

  37. A.E. ADKINS

    Emailled the council again, there must be something about our recycling that they just don’t like

  38. Lucy

    I haven’t done anything exciting this week at all! But got back into the gym which means I can eat more chocolate and cake 😉

  39. Elizabeth Smith

    Sat on the edge of the bath this morning to blow my nose and blew myself backwards into the bath! Dogs thought it was hilarious and every time I struggled to sit up they jumped on my shoulders and knocked me back. Feel like I should be able to sell the whole debacle to a sitcom writer!

  40. Sheena Batey

    I am just about to set off for a power walk to get some fresh air and my bottom off the computer chair.

  41. Tracey Hunt

    My son and i have been shopping today and my boy decided to eat the strawberries whilst i was shopping and try to destroy the cappuccino box too. We also went to the cafe and i had a lovely hot cross bun latte

  42. Susan Chafer

    I’ve been shopping with my hubby. I bought a jacket and we had coffee and biscuits in Caffe Nero. That’s my exciting morning!

  43. Lindsey Stuart

    Today so far has been good, my daughter Heidi and I baked a lemon and coconut cake, I have changed all of our bedding and got the washed ones out on the line! Today has been the first sunny day in a long long time! 🙂

  44. gemma hendry

    been for my daughters 2 year check, she reached al her milestones so we are proud

  45. Glenn Seale

    Lets have a chocolate flavours giggle 😛

    An elderly chap wobbled gingerly into an ice cream parlour and carefully, slowly sat on a stool. He winced a moment, then ordered a chocolate sundae.

    “Crushed nuts?” asked the server.
    “No,” he answered.
    “Bad knees.”

  46. Ren Taylor

    I have had my nails done….lovely long acrylics in a dark grey…problem is that now typing is more difficult lol ! Hope your’e week’s going well x

  47. Mrs Lucy Gardner-Roberts

    This morning I took my son swimming, then to the soft play and tea and cake at his favourite chocolate themed coffee shop. We are both exhausted !

  48. Henry Little

    today we opened a bank account for savings!

  49. Marycarol

    The weather forecast says it’s going to warm up from next week!!! So excited to maybe get out of my boots and into a pair of sandals x

  50. ValB

    As the weather has been so awful I have been decluttering and doing some ebay selling. It takes a lot of effort but Im getting there. Definitely need a chocolate treat !

  51. Emily Hutchinson

    My day has involved herding cats to keep them away from the electrician.

  52. C Whitlow

    So far today I’ve done morning walkies with the pup and have had a healthy lunch. Sat here now trying to convince myself I don’t need chocolate or crisps to snack on! x

  53. Dale Dow

    it’s actually a rant, currently getting my kitchen and bathroom done and the painters finished up today, just had a look and it’s a shoddy job

  54. Danielle Spencer

    Today I’ve been doing the washing, tidying up and cleaning out some of the animals.

  55. glenn hutton

    Finally took the plunge and cut the front & back gardens which I have delayed since all the rain we keep having, but the grass hasn’t been cut since Winter. Wow, hard work or what, it usually takes around an hour to do both, well this time it took nearly 3 hours, the ground is like a bog, the grass being damp and longer than usual just clogged up the mower all the time… Lesson learned for next year, bad weather or not!

  56. Judy

    I took my dog for a long, glorious walk this morning. The sun shone and the tide was out so we could explore the beach, climbing over the rocks and getting wet feet in the rock pools. Saw some friends, canine and human and even popped into the pet shop for a biscuit!

  57. Sue McCarthy

    Last weekend I planted some seeds and tidied up the garden a bit. Made a quiche yesterday so I’ve got that for tea for the next few days. Also been sewing some keyrings with the leftover small pieces of fabric you can’t really do much else with, they have turned out really well (to be donated to charity).

  58. Fiona K

    Had a lovely 3 course meal and Prosecco with my mum at the weekend at the local bistro. Nicest steak ever, still think of it now 🙂

  59. G Keegan

    The latest thing in our town is hunting for painted rocks in the local parks. Certainly keeping the kids busy!

  60. Louise A

    Yesterday evening we went to the cinema and watched a screening of ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’. Two hours long but enjoyable. We were a little early so had a Costa coffee and some biscuits (my husband had some chocolate tiffin). Afterwards we went for a pizza so a bit of a pig out day…lol.

  61. Laura Jeffs

    I haven’t done much lately I’m afraid, as I’ve been quite poorly. I’m beginning to feel better now, so it’s all good 🙂

  62. Helen B

    Spent the day on the laptop searching for a house to buy now we have sold ours

  63. Sarah Mackay

    Got a busy boring day at work but hopefully it will be productive.

  64. aliduke79hotmailcom

    I have been for tea with my friend, now I have to go to work 🙁

  65. Vikki Sanderson

    We went to a local shopping outlet and adventure park! So much fun although I am a lot more competitive than I realised (I won at crazy golf!)

  66. Hannah Irish

    We are about to take our 2 children bowling and Mcdonalds for dinner afterwards, they think all their dreams have come true!

  67. Chloe Taylor

    I do love my chocolate! It’s my 20th birthday tomorrow so I will be celebrating with a yummy chocolate cake.

  68. Laura Pritchard

    I’ve taken a few days off work to look after the kids during Easter and we’ve just got back from a lovely week in Portugal and, today, we went to watch Peter Rabbit – my 3 year old’s first trip to the cinema.

  69. Jo Young

    Today I went back to school, but this time to tidy my daughter’s classroom – she’s the teacher lol

  70. Kim M

    I’ve been making candles today – save all odds and ends and ones that won’t burn then melt them down and do stripy layered ones x

  71. Alice

    I had a girly night with some friends last night, we ordered in pizza and watched Why Him? which was a pretty funny film! One of our friends moved away so it was lovely to be able to get together when she visits in the holidays 🙂

  72. janine atkin

    i had a day off work today and it was bliss

  73. Inga Andersen

    I go on holiday in 5 weeks, so really shouldn’t be entering competitions for chocolate – but as they say, you only live once 🙂

  77. Josie Mellor

    It was a bit of a catch-up weekend for us after going away over the bank holiday. The garden resembles a jungle so looking forward to some decent weather (at last) to tidy it up.

  78. Jennifer Mai

    Hi! Productive day here in East Sussex … Just not enough chocolate in the day … Now where can I get some?!

  79. Emma Nixon

  80. Lyndsey Cooksey

    I’ve been a fibber today lol I messaged my slimming classy say I got called to work and that I couldn’t go to class. When really I’d eaten a rubbish load of chocolates, takeaways and ate my huge weight in donuts…. And I’m a big girl! Oops

  81. Michelle Ferguson

    I’ve been at work all day so not a fun day but at least tomorrow is Friday

  82. Caroline H

    I got home and tackled a shelf in our “room of doom”. Convinced there were things there that I’ve never seen in my life before! That spurred me on to go through the veg rack and cook and freeze what I knew we weren’t going to use before it went off. Feel quite smug now!

  83. Valerie Seal

    We’re staying with relatives with no wi fi and I love playing on my laptop. However after a chat with 3 mobile they’ve let me buy extra hotspot – Phew!

  84. helen tovell

    We went to see some local hosing that is going to be lost to the sea due to coastal erosion in our area to appreciate the force of nature and our own home.

  85. Jackie Howell

    I had a delicious Katsu Curry tonight for dinner! I love Katsu

  86. Komal Qasim

    So as a house wife started my day with daily chores, went for some grocery shopping made mac cheese in lunch and Chinese in dinner as it is my husband’s favourite. So most of my day was spent in kitchen today. Looking forward for this weekend as we have plans for activities.

  87. Kathryn Hipkin

    Happily, I was off on Monday, just about the only nice day these holidays! We went down to South Shields on the metro then walked to Marine Park, kids climbed and played, we went on the little train. I asked them if they wanted to go on a boat on the lake but they didn’t so we went across to Ocean Beach Pleasure Park and they chose 3 things each (the helter skelter was popular with them!). Then we walked back up to Wetherspoons for lunch and took the metro back home. Kids said it was the BEST day!

  88. Pat Kelly

    My sister and niece came for tea and I made a very scrummy orange cake.

  89. Ed B

    I had a long day at work and came home to find my girlfriend had eaten the last of my Easter chocolate! I was not impressed.

  90. Jade weeden

    Me and my husband would be really happy if I won this competition!

  91. bob clark

  98. Paul Chadwick

    A totally lazy day for me today,lounging about watching horse racing and snacking on junk food.

  99. Dean T

    Had the most mundane day imaginable, did some work, went to the shops for cat food and ate dinner with the family before watching the news and surfing the web a bit!

  100. romi

    Feels like the longest week ever! Got some bad news this week so I’m hoping things change and start looking up soon. Winning this would be a nice surprise!

    We’ve are planning on going camping this weekend to the Lake District. Very excited and just hoping that the weather turns nice for us.

  106. Emily Henley

  107. Karen R

    Hubby and I had a lovely day out in Hull last week. We followed the Fish Trail (although we couldn’t find quite a few!!) and enjoyed the old town

  108. Jessica Powell

    I watched series of unfortunate events on Netflix
    Thankyou very much

  114. CLAIRE TAYLOR

    Today is the first day I’ve left bed (except for trip to doctor) I’ve made it to the sofa. Dreaded tonsilitis has struck me down and have to say the worst I’ve felt in a very long time. Luckily the doctor took one look and the shock on his face said it all, I needed antibiotics. Still feeling very poorly but slowly on the mend, thank goodness the sun hasn’t come out yet, hopefully it’s waiting for me to get well.

  115. TANIA STANNARD

    I seem to have some kind of virus that is causing dizziness and have already managed to walk (or rather stumble) into one wall lol Hoping by tomorrow I will feel a lot better

  116. Marc H

    Spent part of this afternoon trying coax the damn cat out the tree in my garden. He’s discovered wood pigeons are nesting near the top and keeps trying to climb it. Little bugger. Still, got a couple of beers, takeaway is on it’s way, time to relax.

  117. Jay MacInnes

    I haven’t finished my easter choccies yet, and here I am trying to win more! Does that make me a choco-holic?

  118. Hayley Colburn

    Have had a terribly boring week so far but am really looking forward to taking the kids to Drayton Manor this weekend, really hope we don’t have rotten weather

  119. Caroline

  124. Carole Nott

    Not a very interesting day – just the usual trip to supermarket for weekly shop – has to be done!

  125. Kim Carberry

    I have got washing drying on the line….That is exciting as my weekend is getting. lol

  126. CHERRY Lloyd

    I had a surprise visit from my friends and their dog. They drove 5 hours from home to buy a camper from a farm. I made dinner for everyone then we all went to the pub for a drink. The pub is 5 doors up but despite living here for 6 years I have never been inside before. When we went in for our drinks we were the only people in there !

  127. Laura Chapman

    Today was my 5th day of exercise this week and tomorrow, I’m hoping to run another 5km to top the week of to 6 workouts. 2018 is going to be a healthy one!

  128. Katie

    Ooo that photo of the chocolate looks so yummy! It would definitely make a great pick me up after such a grey, dreary and miserable week weather-wise (although I did have a strangely lucky Friday 13th…!).

  129. Joseph

    CHOCOLATE! Chocolate! Chocola! Me me me. I would eat all of it by my self and may be let my wife sniff it.. or I’ll be a little nice and maybe let her hold it!

  130. Nicola Rupawala

    I went to visit family and took my nephew to the park as it was a sunny for a change!

  131. Natalie Crossan

    Not been mega interesting, I had to work today and then me and my daughter watched Ferdinand x

  132. Emily Niven

    This weekend I’ve been trying to get some work done however it’s been somewhat unsuccessful. I could do with some chocolate.

  133. Mel Turner

    Removed all 10 interior doors today arms ache now

  134. Emma C

    Yesterday I went to the gym for the first time in 6 months so today I can barely move!

  135. Margaret Clarkson

    Yesterday we visited Yorvik with a party of two adults, teenager and eight year old. We all enjoyed it enormously. Whilst queuing to get in, we were entertained by reinactors who did a great job of informing us about viking life. Once inside we had a splendid ride in a train which took us through the viking settlement with a good voiceover explaining everthing. Animatronics were used to great effect to portray the viking settlers, such as merchants, fishermen etc. After this we were able to look at the real artefacts (nothing less than 1000 years old we were told). We saw everthing from shoes to coins. Again there was a reinactor to explain everything. We were treated to a great talk about the viking money system, which the eight year old especially enjoyed. Thank you to all at the Jorvik Viking centre for a great visit.

  136. Emma Thomas-Higgs

    I’ve had the most relaxing Sunday – lunch out with my finace and now chilling on the sofa reading blog posts – bliss!!! Happy Sunday 🙂

  137. Richard Brandt

    I went to Starbucks and exchanged the gift card I got for my birthday for a pumpkin bread and a hot chocolate.

  138. Abigail Cullen

    Getting fitter for summer, so was on my exercise bike, which We keep in the conservatory.

  139. Lorna Ledger

    Today, I have visited my 82 year old Granddad in hospital , and then we have had takeaway, now we are chilling, love to all x

  140. LOUISE HEATON

    At the weekend I was moving my wall clocks about to make way for my new one – I have 15 now! All in my bedroom! My cat had been sitting with the new one, looking at it, then looking at the main wall of clocks as if to ask ‘where on earth is this one going!?’ I knew what she meant though as my wall space is diminishing fast! Haha! However, I did manage to find room for it on the main wall of clocks and move my biggest clock to another wall, taking place of a glass picture which was also moved to another wall….Talk about giving myself a bit of a Mike Reid! All in all, it didn’t take too long to do and my cat was happy with the result, as was I. Haha!

  141. leanne weir

    I had the absolute pleasure of trying to remove wood chip wall paper today.

  142. Rebecca F

    Great comp. After giving up chocolate for lent I’m still trying to top up my chocolate levels so this would help a lot.

  143. Tabs (@LTabstar)

    I haven’t been feeling great lately, and really needed comfort food, so I cooked the most amazing cheesy pasta dish. A great pick me up!

  144. Louise

    Being born around Easter time I think I naturally love chocolate ;0)

  145. Rich Tyler

    Who doesn’t love chocolate! had to share mine with little 1s, it’s kama! lol

  146. Jen Oconnell

    Today we enjoyed the sun! I had my little boy in September and I swear he is yet to see any proper sun!

  147. Fiona Johnstone

    It’s lambing time at my sister’s farm. So I’ve been helping out. I got all the pens cleaned out, all ready for the new mums. Lovely feeling to change a wet and dirty straw pen into a lovely clean one with fresh clean straw. I fed some pet lambs too. So cute. Then fed the outside mothers in the troughs. It’s been a lovely sunny day too which was a nice bonus.

  148. lesley renshaw

    I had a very productive day today. Woke up and the sun was shining. Little one eager to get dressed and go to school which was refreshing. Headed to college and the rush hour drives seemed happier than normal. Had a giggle at a pair singing at the top of the voices with their windows rolled down. Passed my mock exam with flying colours. Headed home to tidy the garden after winter. Mowed the lawn, done some weeding and emptied the shed of all the rubbish (broken toys, furniture, electricals, etc) we’ve collated over the years and got on the phone to a local waste disposal company to arrange for them to take it. Picked Mini Me up from school and enjoyed an ice-lolly from the ice-cream van (was very hot around this time 22oC). Played in the garden before OH came home from work and when dinner was cooking and now relaxing after a nice soak in the bath. Lovely day all round and I hope you’re having a good week too x

  149. Susie Wilkinson

    I amazed myself so much yesterday when I declared ‘let’s have a salad for tea’, even the dog looked shocked!

  150. Susan Hoggett

    Well dinner last night was the first summery meal of the year, new potatoes with chives from my garden, peas and pan fried salmon with a tomato and olive sauce, delicious!

  151. Ursula Hunt

    This weekend I sold some of my handmade toys and childrens cardigans at a craft fair, it was very nice to see them sell so well

    Well today has been a bit of a struggle thus far. I had a headache yesterday and felt so ill by the evening I collapsed into bed early. Feeling better today, but headache still hasn’t gone and it seems to be getting worse again – I really shouldn’t complain I know, but I’m blaming this weather – I think it’s the brightness! So I’ll tell you about my weekend instead, which was fairly eventful as I ended up on a 12 mile walk with the dog – she was back to normal by the next day, I’m still suffering! lol
    (Nothing I like better than a chocolate surprise!)

    As I’m a bit of a food addict, yesterday’s weigh-in at SW surprised me as I lost 2 n half and bang on target, went off plan as it’s my treat day, browsed Mediterranean book that I bought as a treat as getting fed up with some of the normal meals that I’m cooking and in the afternoon chilled out in the sun as it was gorgeous

    I could really do with these chocolates, my husband recently had a knee op, so between looking after him and our 3 children I could do with a little treat.

  183. Libby Alexander

    Such a stressful day but I have reminded myself to be in the moment – and it has got me through. It’s now the evening and I am taking some “me time”. Feet up, browsing blogs/ internet and realising that life is best enjoyed minute by minute.
