The Winners and the Changes

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Thank-you to everyone for their kind words and ideas when entering the giveaway. I have read through them and will give the suggestions some thought. It appears that the kids stay in the blog. Which is just as well, because I have often have very little time for anything else.

Viv has suggested that there be more about the books I’m reading. Viv has seen me regularly turn up to Monday night sewing with a new crafty library book under my arm. The little ones have me trawling through the picture books too. Once I get over my initial “If you haven’t any thing nice to say..” expect to see a little more on the books we are taking home. There are some reserves in my name at all my local libraries. I will even try to include the ones I will not be taking home again with some sort of objectivity.

It has been suggested that I include something about the job I commute for. I am treading this area with caution as I am very aware of the pitfalls. Bear with me as I choose my words carefully on this post. My profession does tend to leave its finger prints on most things I do. It is very important to me and I have had to make some big decisions this year, so expect to see some words on this in the near future, and some very cool links.

In the mean time I will be doing some tidying around here and updating some links. The local love and admiring from afar links need a refresh. Some are staying but some are no-longer active. You can expect some new and exciting blogs to meet there. I will let you know when it has happened so those using reader can stop and have a look around.

Now for the bit you have been waiting for – the winners:

National – Miss Smith

International – notice only two entries there so..
They are both winners , Joanna at Appliqué Today and Jules at Relish

  1. I am so excited to have won! Woo Hoo!!! I didn't know how good the chances were! And I look forward to seeing the new exciting things you have planned!!

  2. Lucky Miss Smith! I had never heard of "dooced" before - but I can well believe it! I always remember the words of Miss Smith "blogging is like opening the curtains in your living room and inviting anyone passing by to have a good gawk. No, make that the curtains open AND the light on."

    I like to err on the side of private, I've read some real confessionals in blog world that have left me feeling dirty afterwards.

    Word verification agrees with me, the word is "nonscio" which in Latin means "I don't know." Better not to, in blog world, when it comes to matters that should stay private (messy divorces, custody disputes etc).


Your comments make my day. I would love to hear from you.
