camera trouble and a giveaway!

Aaargh!!! i have taken a whole load of pics this week - my outing with trashy, the lovely shops we went into - also yesterday morning took part in a knit in public day - had great pics but my blithering camera will not download my pics - unfortunately it seems to be the camera and not the leads or the computer!!! am soooooo cross!!!! Will have to take it to a camera shop and see what they can do and just hope for the best.

Something completely different - its my BLOGOVERSARY this month - i can't believe its been a year since i started!!! I used to joke with Trashy about blogging and just didn't get it at all - how wrong could i be!!! I have loved it - loved meeting you all, making new friends and seeing all the lovely things you create. I have been inspired by you, laughed with you and sometimes cried too.

So, I will be having a giveaway near the end of the month - i have not decided what yet, but it will depend, i think, on who is the winner - if their passion is knitting, crochet, then probably some wool, or if they are a fabricaholic, then that's what they will receive - you get the idea! I will pick a winner from comments left on any of my posts from now until the end of June.
Couldn't leave you without some pics - so here's Molly trying to get into my laundry bag!

and Lilly's favorite pastime!!!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

But I'm not sure I agree with Trashy's comment! Maybe this is the one and only time you should follow her example!!!! ;o)

Happy bloggiversary!

Hard to believe that it's a year already - an yet, still feel like you've been here from the start! (and that's a good thing!)

Re Trashy's comment: don't let her fool you into thinking that the authentic version of Brunswick Stew is a fab new discovery! (blech! can't even think about eating squirel)

ps: flashbacks to my youth! my word verification was "starske" and I immediately thought of

Ahhh the '70s - so glad that I was too young to really understand but old enough to remember.
