You may have noticed the little widget in my sidebar. Wednesday July 2nd will see me taking part in this year's Race for Life at Malvern. Don't let the word "race" fool you though, I shall be walking as sadly running is now beyond me - where to start, dropped foot, sciatica, dodgy hip, alas I couldn't run for the bus these days but happily the lovely people at Race for Life encourage walkers too, so I can still take part.
February is my bloggiversay month. I really can't believe I have been blogging for a year. I love my little blog, even though it was sadly neglected in the run up to Christmas.
I have decided to have a little competition to help me celebrate this auspicious occasion. So as well as the obligatory prize draw, I have decided to donate 50p for every comment made this month. At the end of February I will count up all the comments and add one gift aided donation to Race for Life via my widget on behalf of you all. This month for example I have had 23 comments on my blog which would see me donating £11:50. I hope to double, treble or even better this, so I'm going to try to make my blog as interesting as possible.
I know from my counter that I have visitors - so may I ask that if you are someone who just pops in and looks from time to time, can you also leave a comment for me. It won't cost you anything, but you will be making a difference, and a comment will give you automatic entry to my prize draw.
The prize will be a Forest Canopy shawl. I have some smooshy yarn from Socktopus I make no apologies for this - I need some holiday knitting and this will fit the bill perfectly. And for the draw purposes, it will be one entry per comment, so if, for example, you make 7 comments you will have seven chances.
So come on folks - help me to start off my fundraising, it won't cost you a penny and you will be making a real difference.
