  1. Danielle Franklin says:

    Love this! Tunes in the shower and moisturising at the same time! Choc for later!

  2. PAIGE WALKER says:

    Toilet locks, what locks!!!!! sorry all you parents of toddlers, its doesn’t end there, my 12 year old and I can be together for hours and the minute I go to the toilet she will convienently remember she had to tell me something.

  3. Marji says:

    I feel like I can’t even remember the last time I went to the toilet alone.

  4. Annalise Mehrtens says:

    Such a common problem for every parent I know – just the same as the phone!

  5. Christine says:

    Cool prize! I was just saying to my hubby yesterday about how I try to sneak away so I can go to the toilet alone… but my little one always finds me! hehe :)

  6. Chelsea McLachlan says:

    Might have to eat the chocolates in the shower…efficiency is key lol

  7. Haley says:

    Chocolate in the shower sounds like a treat :-)

  8. Michelle says:

    Having a quick 5 minute is generally my only alone time during the day. What an added bonus to be able to listen to music and eat chocolate at the same time.

  9. Erin Sawyer says:

    Sounds fantastic!

  10. Hilary Stone says:

    Sanity . . . . what’s that again? I’d love some ‘alone time’. I wonder how old they have to get before they start to understand this concept . . . ..

  11. Kristyn Milson says:

    Love this! Chocolate, nice body wash and music in the shower, sounds like bliss! The music may even drown out the sound of “Muuuuum” for a few minutes :D

  12. Naomi says:

    Weekend showers on my own, while daddy watches bubs, are something I look forward to all week!

  13. Vera champion says:

    Nah the toilet door doesn’t even close in this house. Have to remember to do it when I have visitors!!!

  14. Angela Biggar says:

    DingDing – this so rings a bell in fact lots of bells!

  15. Alicia Necklen says:

    Great prizes! MoT, you rock!

  16. Becs Barnett says:

    Ha ha I said to my husband what a treat it is when I get to go to the toilet without my 3 year old getting her stool to come and talk to me or having my 8 month old sitting on my knee!

  17. Karyn says:

    I am definitely familiar with those moments! This pack sounds fab

  18. Helen Shields says:

    Thank Thank goodness for locks, although I have to drown out the banging on the door. Two minutes is better than none. This looks aaanazing

  19. PJ says:

    A radio in the shower sounds dangerously good- I can easily imagine myself saying – I’ll just get out after this song….alright, the next one…, the next one….

  20. Hannah Owen says:

    Love this! I dream about going to the loo by myself, Even the cat follows me in!

  21. Debbe Laurent says:

    LOL it always makes me laugh that as soon as I shut the toilet door, I hear Mum, Mum, Mum Mummmmmmmmmm (that’s if he doesn’t just walk on in haha)

  22. Michelle says:

    I have three kids under four.. going to the toilet alone is a distant memory. Some times I forget to shower for a few days in a row (Omg I can’t believe I just admitted that :-) My eldest even decided the she wanted to pretend to breastfeed from me again this morning spontaneously (not even my nipples are sacred) No point in locks as they just stand there bashing on the door and whinging until I open it :-)

  23. Kristina says:

    My 1 year old sobs her little heart out if I ever shut the door to any room (surely she must have been adandoned forever) I gave up a few years ago with my first – kind awkward when you forget and have visitors though :-)

  24. JoCee says:

    Locks are a must! The pack sounds lovely.

  25. Amy Cudby says:

    This would be total BLISSSS

  26. Mandy Phipps-Green says:

    Awesome prize!!

  27. Rhonwyn Newson says:

    My first day back at work I finished a hot cup of coffee and went to the toilet all by myself, it’s the little things…

  28. Claire Birks says:

    AWESOME!!! I end up with the whole family in the bathroom when showering, and my daughter and friends daughter in with me when going to the toilet, both are toilet training and both like to help get you toilet paper lol

  29. Danielle G says:

    a break? a holiday? What are those??? lol would love to be in the draw please :-)

  30. Jolie says:

    It’s the little things that make us happy these days :)

  31. Susan Stewart says:

    SO true!! lol

  32. Ishtar Cunningham says:

    i dont even know what it is like to go to the toilet alone for some reason my family feel its the perfect time to come to me and ask me all sort of interesting questions

  33. Aimee Gibson says:

    I could definitely ‘hide’ in the shower and eat the chocolates :-)

  34. Andrea Brown says:

    Please please please, I would love to win this :-)

  35. Tania Hitchcock says:

    A long hot uninterrupted luxurious shower…does this actually exist? Not at our house with a preschooler and new born. Would love to win this, turn up the tunes, a luxury shower gel and choccies to finish, bliss!

  36. Pippa B says:

    The shower radio would be a perfect addition to our home, would drown out the the persistant knocking when I attempt to lock the door to have a shower in peace :)

  37. Renata Rossi says:

    Would love love love this and I have forgotten what it’s like to go t the toilet alone but I love the company! NOT :D

  38. Sarah says:

    I so need this! Singing in the shower with a mouth full of chocolate while cleaning myself with the Nivea body lotion. Challenge accepted!

  39. Lucy Knight says:

    Wonderful! I can’t even remember the last time I used the bathroom without people yelling muuuuuuuuuum through the door. So nice to be wanted ;)

  40. nicola says:

    Brilliant, this morning I was asked to play mummy snowies (the neighbors cat) whilst in the shower.

  41. Nikki S says:

    Totally agree an uninterrupted shower is total bliss.

  42. Casey Bartz says:

    This is just genius ! Love it

  43. Kirsten Newton says:

    Nothing like 11am lunchtime

  44. Rachel Henderson says:

    This is something we all face. I try to shave my legs in the bath by myself but my boy thinks it fun to sail his boat in the tiny bit of water I use !

  45. Kelli Najafi says:

    Just finding time to have a shower would be great lol.

  46. Claire L says:

    Better still when they’ve started going to the toilet by themselves and you enter later to find poos all over the seat. Nothing like having to clean when you’re busting to go

  47. Charmaine Willis-Croft says:

    Ha ha, yes, I can relate! For the past 14 years it feels as though every time I go, I have to sprint to beat that crawling baby or running toddler and now I have older children as well, I compete for time in the bathroom then I fight off the babies and toddlers… usually always end up with an audience… sigh. These kids are too fast for me

  48. peter ocarroll says:

    This is great! A must

  49. Kelsi says:

    Yes yes yes! I definitely took toilet time and showers for granted before I had kids, its so bad now that if im I do snatch some time in there alone I feel a little lost – wondering what is missing!

  50. Angela Pickering says:

    Master 4 was locked out this morning after I did the mad dash up the hallway to get to the toilet and lock the door before he could get there. Still not alone though as he tried to use his hammer on t he door and then to push a tissue underneath the door………. And work wonder why I spend a luxurious long time alone in the toilet on work days.

  51. Jules says:

    Sometimes (admittedly, not often) if they haven’t all followed me to the loo, I find myself yelling to them, because there must be something wrong…. groan…

  52. Jules says:

    Or worse, remembering something I need to tell them and calling them in… I’m my own worse enemy!!

  53. Denise McIlroy says:

    I’m so used to the kids barging in on me in the toilet I now leave the door open when I go. It’s usually only later that I remember that my Dad now lives with us!!! Hahahahahaha!

  54. Kylie says:

    Would love to win this :)

  55. Ange Beaumont says:

    Oooooh this would be fab!!! :-)

  56. Charlotte says:

    Tbh it doesn’t bother me in the least when my kids are in the bathroom with me. But I’d prefer they didn’t discuss my toileting with others…

  57. Miriam says:

    I love singing in the shower – perfect!

  58. Lisa says:

    Mmm chocolate in the shower… Wouldn’t have to share it then hehe

  59. Stephanie Carey says:

    ummmmm…. a shower uninterrupted AND chocolates! Bliss….

  60. Kelsie Brophy-Watts says:

    The one thing I love most is having a shower by myslef ! x

  61. Daina says:

    For some reason Mr 5 must always urgently need to go to the toilet when I am in the shower.

  62. crystal says:

    would love to win!

  63. Leanne Le Sueur says:

    I hear ya. I just leave the door open now because everyone just comes on in anyway LOL

  64. Ck Smith says:

    i hear you loud n clear and know the feeling well, also have a little with me when on the lou

  65. Jackie B says:

    I have 2 kids and a husband who always need me when I am in the bathroom!

  66. Jean Britt says:

    My granddaughters can’t understand why I shut the door when I go to the toilet, they bang on the door and call out “Nana Nana”

  67. Shelley Wood says:

    I love when they are watching TV or busy playing so you think I will quicky go toilet and no longer have you got up off the couch when ‘mummmmmmmmmmmmmm’ or they come looking for you – can’t get 2 seconds alone!!!

  68. Amanda Henriksen says:

    Three sons, a husband, a dog and a cat – the only way I ever get to shower in peace is to use the one at work. Seriously!

  69. Kayla McNamara says:

    what an awesome prize, don’t remember the last time I showered alone without mmmmmuuuummm being yelled

  70. Alison Donley says:

    Must say that kids watching you have a wee does seem to make quicker toilet training. Would eating chocolate in the shower start them off on some bad habits?…I’m sure it would be fine if I drew the curtains.

  71. Kate Seamer says:

    This sounds lovely :-)

  72. Jude Arbuthnot says:

    That would be just perfect. Going to the bathroom is a spectator sport in our house!

  73. Tori Kent says:

    I dont remember the last time I had a peaceful toilet trip, even hubby talks to me while im in there!
    Granted sometimes I go there to hide!!!!!

  74. Kerry Armstrong says:

    Toilet Locks hah!!!
    I lock my toilet but then my boy grabs a chair climbs up and grabs the pin which we have hanging up to unlock the door in emergencies, then manages to unlock door to talk to me.

  75. Angela S says:

    Being able to take a shower without thinking…” is that the baby I can hear.”… is always fantastic. This looks like a fantastic prize pack!

  76. Rochelle says:

    Never get a moment of peace. This is perfect. :-)

  77. Rebekah F says:

    Pick me!

  78. Di says:

    AWEsome prize – tbh I just give up and leave the door open now :-)

  79. Darren says:

    This would be awesome!

  80. Belinda D says:

    wow that sounds awesome. Forgot what its like to have a peaceful shower.

  81. muffinmum says:

    I keep reading it as sanitary pack. Your version is so much better.

  82. Amy McCallum says:

    I would love to win – sounds bliss!

  83. Simone says:

    Me time? What’s that! Could definitely so with a pamper item or two – all disposable income is spent on rat bag these days!

  84. Erin F says:

    Cool! I’d love a shower radio!

  85. Debbie Woodroofe says:

    I know that there is no chance of me time for the wee while at least. I have four little lovelies and yes they all come into the bathroom or talk through the toilet door…. so know how you all feel.

  86. GM says:

    A really nice shower, without the “guilty” feeling that I’ve been in the shower for toooo long, can actually make me feel refreshed and energised! And then the moment I step out of the bathroom, I see my husband trying very hard to rock our baby back to sleep! Lucky to have a hands-on husband! =)

  87. Teresa says:

    I’ve taught my kids to believe that I can’t hear a thing when I’m in the shower! Good thing I don’t have long showers LOL ;)

  88. Ginny says:

    My husband is deployed so with 2 boys (2yr and 5mths) i litterly have no me time. Sounds in the shower would be mean as to drown the banging on the doors.

  89. Kim O says:

    Pre kids the toilet was just that, after kids it did become the place to go for 5 minutes out – until they could walk then no way! Still they find me in the toilet or shower and keep on asking for things etc.

  90. nicole dempsey says:

    One of these would be perfect in my house i have 4 daughters who love each other to bits till i go to the toilet or have a shower then its like they turn in2 a pack of ferral cats who have started world war 3 lol

  91. April Tooman says:

    I can’t even get peace and quiet when DP is home, they only want “mum” when I’m in the shower. Grrrrr

  92. Alison says:

    This would be lovely to win :-)

  93. Tina says:

    Some me time would be amazing.

  94. Leanne says:

    Yay! Something just for us mums.

  95. Liz says:

    My daughter would love this.

  96. Ange says:

    Oh oh! Even as an empty-nester this would be great.

  97. Anita Erceg says:

    It’s not the children who follow me everywhere in this house, it’s my two cats. In the toilet they sneak in the door and sit watching or climb around the edge of the bath if i am having a shower – oh for some privacy!

  98. Emily Lee says:

    my favourite when i’m on the toilet is “what you doing mummy?”

  99. Emma Slieker says:

    I’ve always wanted a shower radio!

  100. paula hudson says:

    Sounds great “me time” i never get this.

  101. Cara Thompson says:

    Sounds great! – I so miss going to the toilet by myself lol

  102. Wendy h says:

    Would love these goodies! They might even get shared :-)

  103. Kristy Dekker says:

    This would be a dream!!

  104. Jessica Cusiel says:

    i really need this

  105. lena says:

    i need to escapeeee with this and my singing to go with the radio

  106. Kp says:

    “muuuuuuuuummmmmm” “I’m going to the toilet” “but I’m busting”

  107. Emma K says:

    What a gorgeous treat, I would love to be in to win, thank you

  108. Emma Keesom says:

    Might b a gift I could wrap up for myself for xmas, that way I wouldn’t have to share with my 3 little boys and my 1 big boy!!

  109. Joelene says:

    awesome….. would love to win!

  110. Anne M says:

    You had me at ‘Muuuuuuuuuuuum’!!!

  111. Jessica says:

    My wee girl isn’t at this stage yet, but she will be one day! What a lovely treat for a special mum, I would love for it to be me!

  112. Trudi says:

    Might as well not have a door on the toilet in our house – they would come right up and peer into the toilet bowl mid stream if I let them!

  113. Maria says:

    Haha 10 years between 2nd and 3rd children made me forget this, now we have a 2 year old I’m remembering what it was like before.

  114. Rachael says:

    Ohhhhh – how lovely for a mummy to get a gorgeous pack like this!

  115. Megan says:

    Yes please
