Fat Face – Proud Sponsors of Life Outside the 9 – 5

Fat Face is capturing the nation’s images of everything they like do outside the 9 – 5 in a huge competition to win the ultimate weekend away.

The competition will see Fat Face scouring the country to find out what people really like to do in their spare time, whether that’s walking the dog, jumping 20ft high on a wakeboard or anything else they might uncover. In my case, it was a lovely walk by the river enjoying the sunshine! Maybe not the most adventurous entry but definitely how I love to spend my time outside the 9 – 5.

The competition will run throughout all of Fat Face’s 205 stores, on fatface.com and through a dedicated Facebook app. Fat Face will then sift through the images and award the winner with the ultimate get away prize; a weekend’s loan of a camper van in Dorset, an authentic airstream for the weekend, windsurf lessons at OTC Weymouth, £500 to spend at Fat Face plus there is the chance to win a Fat Face kit bag worth over £100 in their weekly draws!

The images that people share will be used to make a huge montage showing that despite the gloomy weather this summer the British public still know how to have fun and life by the mantra that Life is Out There! To enter just visit www.fatface.com/9to5

Now, to celebrate the launch of this fabulous competition Fat Face would like to give away a Fat Face giftcard worth £100 to one lucky reader of my blog! How fantastic is that? Entry couldn’t be simpler, all you have to do is leave me a comment here to tell me what you like to do outside 9 – 5 and I will then pick a winner at random this time next week. Good luck! And hopefully I will see some of your photographs over on the Fat Face gallery too along side mine!

Please note: In exchange for this post I was provided with a giftcard for myself as a thank you and also one as a competition prize. The blog giveaway is open to UK residents only – sorry rest of the world! I have one Fat Face giftcard to the value of £100 to give away and the lucky winner who leaves a comment will be picked at random using the trusty name in a hat method after midday on Monday 30th July 2012. I will contact the winner to obtain the address details for the giftcard to be sent by recorded delivery. No cash alternative is available. By entering into this giveaway, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions. Good luck!

    Great competition, I love Fat Face and look forward to sharing some pictures on the competition. Hopefully it’ll attract lots of outdoorsy type stuff. Anyway, as you probably already know we love playing in the woods.

    Fab competition!!!

    Outside 9-5 we love all things swings /slide / climbing frame related! The girls love the beach where my parents live and cycling (although bad for my heart sometimes) is one of my eldests favourite things!! Looking beautiful in your pics & your girls as always are just delicious!!! Xx

    What a great competition! Outside 9-5 for us Lowey’s it’s all about the outdoors – biking, walking, playing football…basically just getting muddy! Camping is one too – so seeing as we have the next few weekends booked for camping – cross your fingers for some more dry, sunny weather for us! thanks!


  4. Krafty Karen says:

    Thanks for the heads up about the competition. I spend my free time indulging in my hobbies of scrapbooking and cardmaking. Sadly due to mobility problems I can’t do much walking but I love to spend time sat out in my little garden – now the weather had turned dry and sunny I look forward to doing that a wee bit more.


  5. Kelly Innes (@domesticgoddesq) says:

    Wow, what a great competition: I have just discovered Fat Face and ’tis awesome! Sounds tragic, but outside the 9-5 I like to read. Half an hour, uninterrupted by smalls asking questions, telling tales, needing the loo, wanting food, or just hoping you will give them a hug. A few pages without being disturbed is the best thing I could ask for!


  6. Icklebabe says:

    Ohh I love fat face! Big fave in our house 🙂
    I like to spend my 9-5 painting and taking pictures, as well as cooking and watching trashy romantic films , I also like being at the beach lots! And my dream would be to live by the sea :))) ha, ha, i may have overshared ;)… feel like I’m on a episode of blind date now.. But u did ask, kind of ;D ;D ;D xxx


  7. Elizabeth Hendron says:

    As a sahm my outside 9-5 can feel pretty much like my inside 9-5!! But I try to carve out some time to myself – blogs, running, reading (if I’m lucky). If I’m really really lucky we get a sitter and go to the cinema or out for dinner. And I get to feel like a grown up again!


  8. Wendy McAuliffe says:

    I love Fat Face & what a great price. One of my favourite things to do, outside of the 9-5, is to have fish and chips on the clifftops near us, watching the sun set. I also love an early morning run along the beach, whatever the weather!


  9. Lee-Anne Tominey @sparklespink84 says:

    Great Competition. Outside 9-5 revolves completely around my little girl. We love going to the park to feed the ducks & play on the swings. 🙂


  10. Muddling Along says:

    What a great giveaway – I’m struggling with knowing that the rest of my family is out in the garden playing in the sun in the paddling pool – I want to do that!


  11. Tegid says:

    I modded my old pair of FatFace slippers, could do with a new pair….

  12. Danielle Askins says:

    Outside the 9-5 I like to have a nice family day and a picnic with something for the little one to do as well such a park or feeding the ducks (not the most adventurous but we don’t have a garden so it’s great to get outdoors), also we never pass down the opportunity for a nice BBQ!


  13. Kathryn Walshaw says:

    Great competition and I’ll definitely be downloading the app as we live in Fat Face!!

    Outside 9-5 my 10 month old and I love going to the park and going on the swings, although days like today we also get the paddling pool out 🙂


  14. MinkyMass says:

    What a fabulous giveaway!

    Well, outside 9-5 is family time for me.

    It doesn’t matter what we do really, but if we’re all together then it’s going to be a great day!


  15. bubbablue says:

    Great prize. Out of 9-5, we love to spend time outside with the rest of the family on the farm. 7 cousins, 4 families – madness with lots of fun and playing outside.


  16. Kara Guppy says:

    What a fantastic giveaway!! I like to get out and about with the kids and as we live in Poole, Dorset we are really close to lovely beaches, the jurassic coast and the New Forset!! If pushed I would have to say fossil hunting is my favourite!!


  17. Zoe Hurley (@ZLouiseH) says:

    Eek I am obsessed with fat face so am very much liking this competition, outside 9-5 I love going camping with the family which last week involved running around our tent trying to stop our 18 month old escaping and pulling our wellies out of the muddy field! xx


  18. Alli Marshall (@AlliMarshall) says:

    What a fab competition – I love Fat Face clothing.
    Outside the 9-5 I exercise a lot doing three 6.15am bootcamp sessions a week and a further three 8pm sessions. Aside from this I spend my other waking hours being a Mum to 4 children which is a full time job in itself!


  19. Caroline Davy says:

    Hi Mostly,
    Well my new husband and I love going for walks on the South Downs, exploring the local countryside where we have just moved to!
    One day we would love a dog so that he could join us! We have also recently discovered some amazing National trust places nearby.
    Love, Caroline x


  20. Anna says:

    Come rain or shine we try and get outdoors whenever we can – on the beach, in the woods, taking in the scenery at the top of a hill, n our bikes cycling along the Thames. We have three children with lots of energy so ideally somewhere with lots of space!


  21. Jojo B says:

    As i am currently 28 weeks pregnant, most of my time outside of 9-5 is spent catching up on some relaxation time, putting my feet up and sleeping. Other than that i like to bake and am constantly printing new recipes out and putting them to the test – my friends think its some weird form of nesting, given that I have a severe allergy to housework 😉


  22. Neil Wanless says:

    Outside the 9-5 we mainly like to walk the dog for miles through fields and woods. And a spit of mountain biking on the side


  23. Leah says:

    Outside 9-5 we love to be outside! Both Hubs & I run but generally we’re mostly out having fun in the garden; barbecuing (sun not required for this – boxing day barbecue last year in snow was lush) or in the park with the baby bear. x


  24. Jo (@2starsandaswirl) says:

    This summer the beach is our thing. Last year the boy had a complete fear of it, the sand, sea, pebbles, you name it. This year he has been up to his neck in the sea. And last week we were the only (idiots) being truly ‘British’ who stayed on the beach when it rained.


  25. Maria @ Feisty Tapas says:

    I used to cross-stitch, way back when I was single without kids, I kept it up when I moved in with my husband but now it’s just impossible with a kid, so I relax writing my blog, I wish it was taking a walk in the lovely summer weather but husband is hardly ever at home on time after T is in bed for me to be able to go out for a walk. I spent a fortune at Fat Face a couple of weeks ago, I love everything I bought, got great service and came out feeling more confident. I’m lucky we have one in town.


  26. Glenda says:

    I am very lucky in one sense that i do not have a 9-5 job (well out of holiday time anyway) as i run my business from home so try and work around my girls! Also as an ex-primary school teacher i know how important play is so we do lots of things – one of our favourite is anything to wander around the field behind our house with a large board, sheet of paper, pens, tray and sellotape and we sit and create our own picture!


  27. Jess @ CatchaSingleThought says:

    Ooh fab competition! Outside of 9-5 we like to visit country parks and local farms (my daughter is a big animal fan!). I like to spend my time reading, preferably with a glass of wine in hand(!), and OH likes to play football.


  28. Diana Cotter says:

    I like to walk, but it’s a long time since I climbed up anything more than a small hill. We used to do a lot of fell walking before we had the children, but somehow, we’ve never got back into spending a whole day out. I’d like to do that again – picnic and flask packed, waiting….

    What a fantastic giveaway – I’d love to be able to treat my son to something special, and encourage him to get outside more than he does 🙂


  29. School Gate Style says:

    Great giveaway…I’ve just been lusting over a load of Fat Face stuff in the Belfast shop. Outside the 9-5, I love blogging and visiting National Trust properties – cannot believe we didn’t join the NT sooner. Some amazing places out there.

    I always love reading or curling up with the husband to watch a movie, Or going for a nice walk with the dog
