'40th Birthday' Celebration - Grand Birthday Blog 'Prize Giveaway' Win yourself the opportunity to have a drink on me!

To help me celebrate my imminent 40th Birthday, I would like to offer my 'Blog Followers' the opportunity to win one of 4 prizes. 1 for each decade of my wonderful existence.  The prizes are very typically me and are the sort of prize I would be happy to receive and rapidly consume.  A 'Lucy Style' Teatime!

Each prize will consist of:

 A 'Time for Tea' China Mug
 '40 Fine English Breakfast Teabags (A cup of tea for every year of my life!)'
 A packet of traditional biscuits (One of my favourites)
 A Tea towel, with which you can keep your highly valued, commemorative, keepsake in prisitne condition.

I will select four winners at random, by allocating each of my Blog Followers a number and employing an able assistant to 'do the deed' on Saturday 5th March.  (To be in the competition you will need be registered as a 'Follower' by Midnight on March 4th).  I will announce the winners on my Blog and as soon as I have the winners addresses I will dispatch the much coveted goodies ASAP.
Good Luck


  1. I love the tea theme of the prize! Happy impending-fortieth-birthday :)

    I would enter/follow you but I don't have a blogger blog. I do have an unused wordpress one and an actually used LJ...

    Good luck peeps :)

    ps - ooh I see I can comment with my wordpress account. Does that mean I can follow a blogger journal on WP then? I'm too new to get this blogging malarky!
    pps - This is Hannonle from Ravelry btw

  3. Hi Lucy the big 40! its very exciting, as you know I had mine last year and marked it by the big journey to buy and collect in person my SpinOlution Mach 2 spinning wheel "Julius". Love the tea party idea, not very good at signing up to be a follower of blogs, I have all my friends blogs via RSS feeds so I know when they have been updated then in quieter moments I can relax and read your words :) Think I have added you to the 'following' list now though, thanks for the hint.

I appreciate and enjoy reading all of the feedback from your comments. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and sharing your thoughts. Sadly I have found it necessary to enable word verification, something I was trying to avoid...but I am receiving an unmanageable deluge of Spam! We don't want that do we? xxx :)
