Book Prize Winner

Hello all!  Sorry I've not posted as regularly as usual.  We've been down south since Saturday on a long awaited family holiday in our favourite little town, Denmark, as Paul has this week off work. However, we're back home now (and with Internet access again) so once I attempt to make a dent in the mammoth pile of washing currently sitting on our laundry floor (the worst part about returning home after time away), I'll be back with a few photos of where we stayed and what we got up to.

In the meantime, I wanted to thank everyone who took the time to comment on my last post.  I appreciated your feedback SO much and found it helpful to hear what you liked, to read the suggestions you gave and to come away even more motivated to make a few small changes here. One of the things that pleased me the most was hearing that this space was very 'me' and that my sharing snippets of daily life around here doesn't bore you all too much.  It was also great to have some new faces introduce themselves as it's always nice to know who's reading my posts.

You'll have to bare with me as I slowly try to spruce things up and work on a new blog banner for this space.  Changes will have to be done bit by bit during my 'precious time' while Sophie naps so it may look a bit hotch potch here while I'm in the process of my bloggy makeover.

As for my book prize (which I've since realised was an appropriate prize to give away seeing as this week is Book Week here in Australia), I popped all the names of those who were kind enough to leave me some feedback into a bowl and gave Grace the honour of choosing the winner who was...

I'll be in touch with you soon Belinda to find out which book you'd like... Now it's time to stop procrastinating and to sort out some washing...


  1. Glad you had a great little holiday. Denmark is my favourite little town too! I live in Albany so it's nice and close we visit there all the time and the park near the river is my kids most favourite playground! :)

    1. Hi Evelyn, I agree, it's so beautiful down that part of the river - a really pretty spot. We actually took a drive to Albany and stopped for morning tea at a great cafe at Emu Point- the playground there was one Grace loved - it was a really nice spot!

  2. Congrats Belinda :)
    So glad to hear that you had a lovely weekend away. Boo about the washing pile though....the never ending saga :)

  3. Sorry I missed your giveaway Amanda, I'm just getting caught up after a busy week. My husband was off work too and we had a weekend away to the mountains. I'm looking forward to seeing how you spruce up your blog. I love reading all of your posts, hearing about your family life, your home and craft projects and anything else you feel like posting about. Your blog gives a good sense of who you are. Don't change too much! x x

  4. I'm one of your's nice to meet you..glad you had a good time on holiday!

  5. Hope you had some lovely weather in Denmark! I'll be looking forward to hearing about where you went and stayed to note down for ideas for the next time I'm there :)
