Look at this!

Look what I've won!

All this came today from Lisa Oceandreamer!

Somehow, a while ago, I ended up on her blog just when she was doing a giveaway to celebrate having blogged for 2 years. I felt a bit cheeky commenting at the time as I was only an occasional visitor there but I felt I ought to leave a congratulation on having blogged for two years and then it turned out that I'd won - so I felt even cheekier, oh dear. But its arrived today and its made me so happy!

Thank you Lisa Oceandreamer - your parcel contained such wonderful cheerful, fun, girly things in addition to the advertised wall-hanging (in my favourite colours)! What a surprise I really wasn't expecting all these extras. I wasn't expecting any extras! I'm so happy I really don't know what to say.

The No Diet Diet suggests today, day 9, one experiment with being more (or less) group-oriented than usual... and as I'm not working I was wondering just how to be more so. Then the doorbell rang and there was a parcel for me, all the way from the USA! I am part of the blogging community and am feeling it right now and here.

So how am I going to do something to spread the bliss?

I'm going to do a giveaway too.

On September the 4th I'll be celebrating my third blogiversary! So make sure you come by then and comment for your chance to win... to win what? You'll have to wait and see...

And thanks again to Lisa Oceandreamer.

Lovely loot, that wall hanging is so much fun. And you got a grow your own mermaid or princess! (I love those things). It's like a girly, whimsical Christmas!

Hi! I saw your crow link at Ellen's (it didn't work for me.Boo!) and realised it's yonks since I came by your place!
I'll say "congrats" now for your anniversary as I might not get back on the day.If I have any more printing dramas I wont even get to my own blog!
Love the rainbow photo, by the way.Very magical.

I know the feeling - I won something on Steve's blog and he sent me a bunch of comic books. :D

Moreidlethoughts - is that the blogger who used to be known as dinahmow? Thanks for popping by - I know I've not been a regular enough visitor to you either.

Lisa Oceandreamer - your timing was immaculate! Thanks again it really has made my week.

Janet - glad to hear you are still around and thank you it is certainly going well in this second week of it.

Tony - that's brilliant - glad you've had something fun too!
