So today is the fifth of April and my humble little blog is 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 giveaways. 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 third day as an average to spread them out over the month.
My second giveaway is a lovely selection of £70 worth of books from Dorling Kindersley. These have been supplied by DK for me to giveaway. I have to say I am tempted to hold onto the embroidery book but ssshhhhh don't tell them. This is the biggest value prize I have to giveaway so decided it was the approproate one to share on the actual date.
The five books I have on offer for today's giveaway are
