My 1,000th post....and my first giveaway!

One THOUSAND posts. 1,000 times where I've sat down and shared something....moments of sorrow, joy, reflection, hope and wondering. I've made some amazing friends through blogging, I've had some great times because of blogging and have learned so much about myself through this experience too. I'm so glad I started blogging in the first place, and so unbelievably grateful I get to continue to do so!

Thank you to all of you who read, comment and email. Inasmuch as this blog is for me as a record of my life and adventures, it's lovely to feel connected, and to have you along on the journey is both a pleasure and a privelege!

I was having a wee ponder on how to mark this occasion. A party? A song (Scarlet, I genuinely considered this, I know how you love a karaoke moment...)? A poem? All were tempting, but ultimately tricky to pull off. So instead, I am going to do my first ever giveaway!


A PARCEL O' FUN!


As I adore post and mail, it seemed only fitting to include this love in the giveaway!

The one lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a package in the mail filled with some of my favourite things - music, a DVD, a book, and myriad treats! I was going to make a pre-made package, but as my tastes are eclectic I will wait until the winner is selected to tailor make a parcel which I think they will enjoy, full of good things - movies, fun and candy, oh mys!

To secure an entry in this giveaway you can:

1. Leave a comment on this post (please and thank you!)
2. Become a follower of this blog (or let me know in the comments if you already are!)
3. Blog about this giveaway (let me know in the comments if you do so).
4. Tweet about this giveaway (let me know in the comments if you do so).
5. Mention this giveaway on facebook (let me know in the comments if you do so).

(One entry per item, maximum of five entries per person)

My first giveaway....I'm kind of excited! I hope you'll join in and that I can make a really fun package for whoever wins!

This giveaway will end at 9 p.m. GMT on Saturday, February 25th. I will then make up a parcel for the winner and mail it to them by Friday, March 9th at the latest. Bonne Chance, lovelies!

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
