Who Won?



Last night we held the ceremony of the draw (!)...


I wrote everyone's name on a piece of paper, cut them out, folded them and put them in one of our nicest bowls.......




As it was Bob's birthday (thank you to those who wished him a happy one!) I asked him to perfom the honours....excuse my daughter's nose !








And the winner was...........can you make out the name from the very bad photo? It was the luckiest person I know in 'Blog-land', young Toby Attrill! So I shall pack up your little macaw today and he will be winging (haha!) his way to you shortly.



Sorry to the rest of you, I felt kind of bad that I couldn't send you all a prezzie! This was fun, I think I shall do it again in a few months' time, maybe a Christmas one.....

Actually, if you want to enter another draw, check out the 'Sparrow Fart' blog link to your left and Bronwen is holding a give-away for a rather nice pendant....

We had a lovely day yesterday for Bob's 50th - after the presents and cards bit, we went out for the day to Brooklands to see all the old cars, bikes and aeroplanes (it was Bob's birthday after all) and it was fascinating. We got to go inside several aeroplanes and Stacie even got to sit in the pilot's seat in a couple while someone showed her the controls. We then tootled home via Bob's home town (village?) which he hasn't seen for years so it was a real memory jerker and had a quiet evening at home with cake and wine. Unfortunately, Bob started to feel a bit poorly (even before the wine!) so it was just as well we hadn't gone out for a meal! Before we went to bed, we went outside and actually saw some of the meteor shower - first time in years that there has been an astral event and it hasn't been raining or thick cloud!

Hope the macaw puts a smile on your face!
Oh bugger-forgot about that meteor shower last night-don't think we'd have seen it here mind you-sky was very cloudy last night.
