Today is the day then - the announcement of my blogoversary candy winner - are you excited?
But before we get to the tedious stuff like who has won (you're not really interested in that are you?) I have to say WOW! 297 entries for the candy - that's a HUGE number! So, a very big thank you to everyone who has taken part, bloggers and emailers alike. I'm overwhelmed with the number of you who have also signed up to "follow" my blog. I've received some heart-warming comments from some of those new to my blog but some wonderful messages from my loyal and longstanding followers too. This blog would not have succeeded without your support fellas so a heart full of thanks to you for sticking with me. My only hope is that I can create enough of interest to keep the new followers coming back and they won't disappear now the candy has ended.
Anyway, enough of my waffle. I had a word with Vince and said how do you fancy picking the winner. He flicked his whiskers at me and went off to find a biscuit so I had to call on Mr RNG (that always makes me think of Jack Coleman's character, HRG, in Heroes) to do his stuff. I loaded in the numbers and here is what he came out with
There was a lot of whirring and grinding noises but Mr RNG has generated entry number 25, and that person is ......... RUFUS! Congratulations sweetie! Email me (you know where) your address details and I'll send Vince off to the Post Office on Tuesday.
Rufus, bless her little cotton socks, has been following me since about day one and has stuck with me through thick and thin so I am thrilled to bits that Mr RNG has recognised that.
So that's it guys, all done and dusted. Mind you, I am thinking about a little candy to celebrate my umpteenth birthday in July so keep an eye out.
Thanks again to everyone who took part, hope to see you all soon.
