Pay It Forward Giveaway
Last month I recieved a wonderful parcel from Andrea over at Andrea's Easy Vegan Cooking as my prize for winning her Pay It Forward Giveaway.
Isn't it just brilliant recieving a parcel in the post? Such a treat and so unusual. It is normally bills that arrive at my house. It makes me yearn for the days of letter writing, when it was such a joy to open a handwritten missive and get comfy somewhere to read it. I remember friends often doodled or sketched in their letters. Email is so cold in comparison. I am getting sidetracked, so before I rabbit on anymore, back to my parcel.
Andrea sent me a pack of dried apple chips (lovely large slices too), a bumble bar (which I haven't tried yet), some lemongrass soap (which is lined-up to be used in my bathroom), a bar of organic orange dark chocolate (which I had scoffed within half an hour of opening the parcel, mmmmmmmmm!), some gorgeous local coffee beans (which I had a good sniff off and passed on to a friend, who said it was fab. I am not a coffee drinker, hate the stuff, but I love the smell. I resisited keeping it to smell occassionally as I thought that would be a waste and rather sad. My friend said it was truly scrummy), a rather fabulous greetings card (one of Andrea's own), a cranberry and orange health bar (actually I forgot about this one, must enjoy it tomorrow) and a lovely hadwritten postcard.
If you would like to take part in this Pay It Forward Giveaway, leave a comment after this post. I'll randomly select a winner using my wee independent adjudicator on the 2nd of August 2010 and post the winner on the 3rd of August 2010. I am happy to post my Scottish goodies anywhere worldwide. (Remember, by entering this contest you're agreeing to post about your parcel and hold a giveaway of your own to award a box of local treats to someone else.)
Good luck everyone and no you can't have the baby. He just chooses the winner and is not the prize!
