My Blog's 7th anniversary giveaway No 1 Thorntons chocolates

On April fifth my humble little blog will be seven years old. Seven years of sharing the ups and downs of life, the growth of my family from two grandchildren to seven not to mention a house move and the demise of two pets.

So by way of celebration I am planning on running a series of competitions. Some of the prizes I am providing myself and some have generously been donated by various companies. So I have ten prizes so will run one every three days to spread them out over the month.

All the competitions will be easy Gleam entry form with one compulsory means of entry, a relevant eight word or more comment on my blog with other optional entries if you wish.

So first up is a box of chocolates from Thorntons, This prize I am supplying myself. The use by date is the end of August but I picked these up in their January sale ready for my giveaways.





Please note comments will show after moderation. Please can people answer the question asked with a minimum of eight words as requested as it would be a shame if the randomly chosen winner had to be disqualified as they had not done so.
