Thu, Dec 16, 2010


I owe so many people a big thank you for standing by me over the past year or two and even more for nominating me in the BMB Brilliance in Blogging Awards.  What with health issues and learning to live as a single parent I’ve had very little time to read and keep up with you all, but you are a fabulous bunch and I feel so lucky to be part of such a huge and diverse community that is the blogosphere.

So I have prizes…

Firstly a stunning Fire Engine Ride-on Speedster from Variete Stores, where you can find everything from lights to furniture to toys. Check out their blog for practical advices on home and garden decoration, and great shopping tips.  (RRP 62.99)

Second a cool bundle put together by myself, Miss E and Miss M, courtesy of the lovely folks at Toys R Us including :

And last but not least I have a £50 voucher code from , so if you really want a bit of Mr Depp you could purchase this lovely Jack Sparrow costume  or get yourself a pirate wench if you so desired.
