Firstly, I'd like to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments you've left while I've been away and I will try to get around to visiting you all.
I had a lovely time on holiday on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus and came back in the early hours of Monday morning - but am now nursing a bad back due to lifting my suitcase up a little too quickly! At least that means I have an excuse to delay some of the household chores awaiting me - the unpacking and washing is done, but all that ironing - doh!
I bought a few extra souvenirs which I'm offering here as a giveaway. I've never done a giveaway before (apart from the OWOH event) and am a bit worried in case no one enters, but thought I'd chance in anyway - I'd really like to give something back as I get so much enjoyment from blogging and all the inspiration, learning, friendship and fun that comes with it.
The giveaway consists of the following items:
A sturdy cotton shopping bag
A bar of pure olive oil soap with a fridge magnet of Aphrodite (I think!)
A natural leaf notebook with paper made from bamboo pulp
A pack of little twig pencils
... and there's even a few Cypriot Euro coins in there for good luck!
If you'd like to be in with a chance to win, just leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner at random a week today - 15th September. It's open to anyone here in the UK or overseas.
I'll be celebrating a special birthday on Friday 10th September - mine and I'll no longer be able to say I'm in my forties - sob, sob!!! Please say something to cheer me up - and I'll send this additional bar of olive oil soap with magnet to the one that makes me feel better or makes me LOL.
Anyone want to see a holiday photo of me? Well, there is one I could show, but for some reason when I uploaded it onto my computer it came out as though it had been taken with a wide angle lens!!!!!!!!! I'm surely not that wide! So, after the birthday cake and drink I think that ever elusive diet must start - and then I can use the holiday photo as the before picture - LOL.
Here's one I took of my niece and nephew anyway
Don't forget, to be in with a chance for the giveaways, leave me a comment and I'll announce the winners next Wednesday 15th September.
Cheers, or as they say in Cyprus, Yiamas!
