When Life Gives You Lemons. My philosophy has not changed. I still think 'When life gives you Lemons you should make a 'Lemon Drizzle Cake.' I love the way cake solves everything! (If only the politicians ate more cake!) In fact I have plans to make a 'Lemon Drizzle' next week to celebrate a year of blogging. I hope to make a beauty with a candle and everything!
In a year I have posted over 300 posts, phew don't I have a lot to say for myself! I have made loads of 'Blog Buddies' and to date have 174 followers from all over the globe. I am very grateful to you all for joining me in my
I have a small obsession with my 'Flag Counter' (a bit like stamp collecting) and check it a couple of times a week. I have had visitors from 121 different countries with Qatar being the last new country. (I still have to look up where that is!) Fancy I have had visitors from places I have never even heard of! My Geography knowledge must be bad! We must not forget the 'Extraterrestrial Visitor. (Hello, smiles and waves - we know you are out there).
Now I love me a good 'Blog Give Away'. I won't be celebrating for my birthday this year with a 'Give Away'. I may celebrate '200' Followers at some point in the future, and '100 000' hits feels like it will be a benchmark, I still have a long way to go for that though (currently I have 67 000 hits). If you can't celebrate your 'First Blogiversary' what can you celebrate? It is not just a 'Big Year' for my Blog it is a 'Big Year' for Britain! (Though most of us would not know it with the state of the economy!) Her Majesty will be celebrating her 'Diamond Jubilee' in June and we will get an extended Bank Holiday weekend. I am all for those!
Ooops Sorry, wrong picture!
Here she is in all her Glory
We are also proud (but very poor) hosts to the 2012 Olympics.
What a super 'Official Logo' It looks even better if you wear your sunglasses!
I thought it befitting that my 'Give Away Prizes' should have a touch of Great British Patriotism about them. I will have One 'Lucky first Prize Winner' and Three 'Runner Up' prizes for the 'Grand Blogiversary Draw'. I have a selection of these fine 'Tea Towels' to give away. The first prize will be the much sort after set of all three. The runners up will win 'One Randomly Selected' tea towel each. They are sure to add a touch of glamour to your daily drudge! I know they do it for me!
My Personal Favourite paying homage to The Great British Egg!
(I am sure you get eggs in the rest of the world though?)
My Day would not be complete without the Great British Cuppa.
(All the way from India!)
Doesn't the Union Jack look much better in Pink Patchwork. I may write to Her Majesty and The Houses of Parliament to start a campaign to get it officially changed to this. Much much prettier, don't you think?
I can't promise to iron the prizes but I am sure the 'winners' could do that for themselves. To be in for your chance to win one of these fantabulous 'Tea Towels' you simply need to be a 'Follower' of 'Lucy In the Sky' and leave me a comment on this post. I would love it if your comment could explain why for you, 'Britain is Truly Great'. I will draw the 'Winners' by 'Random Number Generator' on my Blogiversary Day, 29th January 2012. You need to have entered by 28th. Let us eat 'Drizzle Cake' and be merry!
Good Luck and thanks again for following and all your lovely comments X
