Goodness, the past two weeks went so quickly! My Jury Service is all done and dusted and so, too, is the giveaway. I have to say I have felt like the most popular girl in class, it's been lovely (and flattering) that so many of you entered, thank you for giving the old self esteem a major boost!
There has been many a family discussion about just how the winning name should be picked but, as promised, it was left to the children to dream something up. There were a variety of suggestions -
- attach the names to snails and get them to race, however that would mean finding around 80 beasties which, even in our garden, would be going some
- put the names in the 'elefun' game and see which was caught in the net first
- leave the names out on the lawn overnight to see which one the foxes didn't eat
My 'hilarious' husband suggested that had the giveaway ended during the week, I could have asked the judge or, better still, the defendant to choose a winner. Hmmm.
But the method chosen unanimously was to pile up the names and turn on the hairdryer, the winner being the name to travel the furthest distance. Only as MLF was going up the stairs, large silver bowl filled with folded name papers inside, the temptation was too great and she opened one up.
So congratulations to Scented Sweetpeas. Well done Zoe, please email me your postal details and don't forget to let me know if you prefer the original daisy earwires, or plain, gold filled ones instead. I'll get them off to you this week.
Apologies to those who didn't win but this has been so much fun and I'm already thinking about what to offer for the next one!
Have a lovely weekend x
