On the fourth of May I ran a competition for a surprise package of goodies from Kiwidutch.

All you had to do to be in to win was to make a comment telling me which has been your favourite recent post, and why.

I’ve packed a bag with some Dutch goodies and all it needs now is the address of the recipient.

Since I was delighted with all of the replies and never want to play favourites, I used a random prize selector (i.e. my impartial children) to assign each comment with a number and then used the programme to pick one of those numbers at random to select my winner.

The kids persuaded me that all comments on posts I posted during the time that the competition was running should count, with the logic that if people cared enough to take the time make a comment, then they must have really liked the post.

Arm twisted by my two kids and two visiting cousins who were here for a sleepover,  we scribbled all the names on bits of paper, put them in the hat  one of my baking bowls, and after some squabbling about who got to make the draw, got the littlest kid to draw a name.

Thereafter (Drumroll…) I am delighted to announce that :


of    http://navywifechronicles.com/          is my lucky winner!!!

Congratulations to her and a huge Thank You to everyone who took the time to make a comment… (there will definitely be more competitions in the future on this blog, so for those of you who didn’t win this time, please  do try again!) . I appreciate each and every reader to visits my blog and for me there’s as much pleasure in running these competitions as there is for one of you to win them.

For Navy Wife, I will be contacting you to get your address and then your package will be in the post soonest. Yeah!!!! I hope this makes your day 🙂





  1. Please thank your littlest kid for us! Thank you kiwidutch! We can’t wait 🙂
