I Won! I Won!


When I turned Iris the Ipod on this morning to check my email I found this message:

Hi Ann, you've won a copy of my children's book - please can you email your address to me crystal.jigsaw
I'll send it off asap.
Thanks, CJ xx


I am still in shock. I won!!!
OK time to get a grip.

Kathryn over at Crystal Jigsaw ran a competition. All you had to do was leave a comment on her blog. Commenter's names were placed in a hat, and Amy her beautiful daughter and my new good luck charm drew the five winning names. The prize...a children's book written by Kathryn. How great is that!

Check out Kathryn's vlog of the proceedings. Didn't Amy do a super job!! Well of course she did. She pulled my name out of the hat.

Congratulations. It's really cool to win something, isn't it? I can't remember the last time I won anything, though. Enjoy the book.

Jan Morrison said...

Ah, winning is always good and entering so you have a chance,even better!
By the way, I'm intrigued about the fact that you spend time in Ireland - can you tell us or me about that?

Hi Ann, Told you we were all on a lucky roll, your heading came up on my blogroll, and I was thinking has she won the lottery, the nobel peace prize, what has she won? But I think winning a book is better than all of those put together, long may your luck continue !!

Congratulations! I love winning books! I've won several in this manner and I keep trying lol! I'm thinking about doing a book giveaway in honor of reaching 100 followers, which I"m pretty close to. Judging from your response to winning a book, I think that might be a good contest to honor my followers.

I never win anything....but of course I never enter either. Congratulations to you. May your good luck continue all the way to Vegas, and may you share your spoils with me.

How awesome. Congrats!

Well done Ann, , your blog is really coming on isn't it? Plenty of accolades, all well deserved. Thanks for your kind comments over on my post about my mother, really appreciated all the lovely things people said. I responded over there but just repeating here in case you didn't see it. I will try to get back to normal blogging now, I find the writing very therapeutic (even though that sounds very new-agey - which I'm not!)
It's nearly countdown to Immrama 2010 after Devonshire Day on Sunday!
Best wishes, Catherine

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Well done indeed!! I feel very honoured to be sending a copy of the book to you. Amy did do a grand job didn't she!

Thanks again for entering, and for this lovely post.

Congratulations. I won books two weeks in a row this month. I don't understand the sudden run of luck, but I love it.
