There’s still time to enter the 2000th post Giveaway. Please comment on last week’s post [click here] not this one!
I have put together a small parcel of goodies which are all flat and postable, so that the giveaway can include international friends as well as UK ones. Some cookery booklets, a book of poems, a coffee coaster, some pretty postcards and a handmade beaded ‘book-thong’ to mark your place.
Last week I read a rather sniffy comment on another blog deriding people who ‘have so-called giveaways which are things they already have, and not new stuff’ If you think she is right, please don’t bother entering my giveaway! I would love to be able to go out and buy a basket of expensive goodies to share with my friends. But I can’t afford to do that.
My ‘celebration package’ contains books which I have previously read and enjoyed, a couple of new handmade items, and some stationery which isn’t new, but still perfectly usable, and a few other bits beside.
I am not into sponsorship or advertising on this blog, so publishers and manufacturers do not give me freebies to pass on to readers. You can find plenty of them elsewhere if you want them.
I’m just a simple soul who gets a genuine thrill out of receiving a tiny parcel of treats from someone I love – they don’t have to be expensive things – just a package saying ‘I care about you, this is to brighten your day’. From the comments I have had on these past 2000+ posts, I think most of my regular readers feel the same way. Let us not apologise for sharing the blessings we have!
So do not forget to make your comment [like I said, here] before Friday night.
btw, if anyone from Royal Mail is reading this, what’s happened to the little package that STEPH posted to ME from London last week??!!
