My Blog's 7th anniversary giveaway No 3 - More Thorntons chocolates


On April fifth my humble little blog was 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 will have ten giveaways over the month, so one every third day to spread them out over the month.

So as I know chocolates always go down well we have another box up for grabs in today's giveaway. Again I have provided this myself.





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.
