Mayhap it is and mayhap it ain’t. Who knows? Definitehap I received two freebies in May, and here they are.
That’s all folks!
….and may all your Christmases be shiiiittteee! I hope everyone has roasted their nuts suitably and are waiting to put their hand’s on Santa’s sack! Here meanwhile, I was provided with these lovely festive extras.
It’s lipstick. Shocking!
It’s eyeliner. Lasting!

September, September, the most hated month in the Western world, scourge of kids forced to return to education after months of freedom, despised by everyone else who dreads the coming rain and snow. Thanks to Amazon, my month was made brighter and better by a nine-item bounty, including toys and DVDs. What more could I ever want?
Starring my beloved Neve, this film was pretty dreadful, with irritating characters and… that’s about it. But Neve makes everything better.
A decent Mexican film focussing on one family’s struggle with drugs, violence, and corrupt cops. Well acted and with several brutal scenes, it doesn’t make for easy watching.

Woo hoo! The sort of ring I always wanted when I was a kid, this one has a number of features to make play all the more exciting.
A fun tool for arty types which my kids are still a little too young to apprecitate.

A great little remoted controlled car which zooms through water as easily as over land.
So, I went a little over the top in August, thanks to the Last Harvest tab. For those who don’t know, I’ll recap. Every month, Amazon Vine offers me a selection of items to select, keep, and review, all for free. The 3rd Thursday of each month I can select 2 items, and every 4th I can select 2. Each month a new list of items is offered. However, there is also the Last Harvest, which is infrequently updated. There are hundreds of items, and I can take as many of them as I like, at any time. However, I still have to review them before the next official Vine newsletter, or I can’t select off that new list.
So, my first newsletter this month didn’t offer my anything exciting, although a quick look at the Vine forum showed some others were offered cameras, laptops, and other impressive things. Naturally, I felt inadequate and jealous. Not to be outdone, I decided to hunt through Last Harvest for loot, and now have the buyer’s remorse (made even more strange by the fact that I paid for nothing). Last Harvest typically does not have the expensive items, instead it’s mostly books and smaller, cheaper items. The 4th Thursday I did a little better, but missed out on some game tablets for kids, which I’ve been wanting to get for my eldest daughter for a while now. Here’s what I picked up in August:

This month I really only wanted Anti-Virus software as mine was about to run out (though a TV or a Neve Campbell would have been nice too). As the old saying goes ‘If thou shalt ask then thou mayhap will receive AVG Internet Security’.

Cool, two years of top notch freedom, although it did cause my laptop to collapse when I restarted the day after installing. All good now.

This looks like good fun for the bambino, though reviews have commented that it falls apart under the stress of a ghost’s breath.

We have another bambino on the way in a few weeks, so this should come in handy over the next few months.
