Anyhoo, as I don't work, I have free time and I spend far too much of said free time on FB, Twitter, Klout and t'internet in general. I am not generally a very lucky person. I don't win competitions. I don't win sweepstakes and prize draws. However, recently, I have 'won' a few things. I won a poster from a competition on FB and it is now framed and in my hallway.
Recently I won a box of cookies & brownies from The Protein Bakery through a competition on Bella Vivere: Life a Beautiful Life blog. I was nice though and kept 2 cookies for myself and let Ben take the rest to his work. Although I am not entirely sure he is sharing them and I think he has kept them all for himself.
Winning a car would be good as our car really is rubbish, but it does get us from A to B. It's not a nice new car but it is not likely to get stolen by anyone! We only have the one car and Ben has had it for the last couple days so I've been home and not out on the roads terrorizing the South Carolina drivers. Just as well really as it rained a little bit yesterday. No where near as bad as the rain the Gulf of Mexico that has just hit New Orleans but it was enough for me. The back of our house now resembles a swimming pool. If I had a pair of wellies it wouldn't be so bad but I don't and I'm not standing in it wearing flip flops!
The kids have been back in school for a week now and I am slowly getting back into a routine. (I went out with friends on the Friday after school started and had a drink to celebrate the end of summer break! 11 week is a long time!)
I had planned to start writing again the very day they went back to school but circumstances prevented that. Tomorrow will be the day. It will. It will I tell you!
