A special day....

Hello again

I know 3 posts in 3 days - you'll be getting tired of me soon ;)

Just seems like No7 buses blog posts come along all at once. Some times I can't think what to write and other times like this week, I've a list of things that I want to blog about - lets just say today isn't the last you'll hear from me this week!!

Well the reason today is special? I've reached another bloggy milestone - 250 posts and now over 250 lovely people who follow & comment on my wafflings.



This of course means it must be giveaway time. I've been collecting bits & bobs for a little while and when I laid them all out I noticed there was a theme or two amongst them;



Red, white & blue - a brooch, threads and ribbons


It wouldn't be a giveaway without a hint of Cath.


A pretty box with a spotty lining and some gorgeous embroidery scissors


A button for you to add to your blog if you so wish.

As usual there are no rules - just leave a comment below if you'd like your name to go into the hat. I'll leave this open until Monday April 11th @ 6pm (then I can post the winners name that evening)- oh and I will add chocolate to the final parcel but won't buy that yet in case my teenager chocolate eating mice find it (so far they've not found my birthday stash ;) ). There may also be a few other bits added - again I've just not found them yet!!

See you again very soon - I've got the contents of a fabulous swap parcel to share with you.

Any CK I can get my hands on I love - we don't get her stuff here in Canada and I have to import through Ebay or her website - very expensive.

Thanks for taking time to write.

I have been directed here by the noseyness of following others on MSE, Pootle Flumps list has had me delving. I am a bit of a Cath Kidston nut, but not able to purchase unless I am ebaying!. I am new to blogging. But its becoming addictive reading! Well done on 250 posts.! I will take a bit of time catching up on them all. I may learn something new in the bargain too! Happy Blogging.
