Reading the Christmas Radio Times, with a glass of red wine whilst Michael Buble warbles Christmas 'toons' in the background, is like Christmas law in my family; it's necessary, it has to be done and Christmas REALLY starts from that point onwards - this is how I spent yesterday evening; marvellous.
If YOU buy a copy of the Christmas Radio Times too, then you'll be able to pick up a free Gruffalo Colouring Book just like I did yesterday afternoon.
- You're going to have to go out into the big wide world for this one
So, all you need to do is grab a copy of the Crimbo Radio Times - it costs £2.50 and covers all the TV, Satellite and Radio listings between 17 and 30 December - pull out page 58 and take it along to your nearest Mothercare of Early Learning Centre before Christmas Eve.
They'll give you a free Gruffalo Colouring Book and you'll get £5 off when you spend £25 in-store too - I won't be doing that, but I will be grabbing a free Gruffalo Colouring Book for my youngest.
If you can't get to a Mothercare or ELC you can cut out the coupon, on page 58, and send it off in the post (with a cheque for £1.99 to cover p&p) to claim your free Gruffalo Colouring Book.
Does this really count as a freebie, as you have to buy a copy of the RT? I don't know, but the Gruffalo Colouring Book is worth £3.99, so at the very least you have a pretty good discount on it.
Happy Gruffalo Colouring!
