I have got a few good reasons for a give-away with this post! Firstly, this is my 200th post; they seem to have gone by in a flash and I have really enjoyed writing them! Secondly, another birthday is just around the corner and I don't want to think where that time has gone! Thirdly, this month sees our 30th wedding anniversary and what an amazing 30 years it has been. Sadly, we will be spending the day in different countries, but we can drink to each other over a video call on Skype. Celebrations will come later! What would we have done without Skype during our long periods of separation? - life would have been even more difficult, so a big thanks to them! I would like to say thank you so much to Nigel for a very happy 30 years, I hope it will be very soon that we are together in France and separation will be a thing of the past. We have done so much together, but so much apart; retirement, hopefully, will be a long and happy period of togetherness.
I have made the choker, bracelet and earrings, shown below, to give away; all you have to do to win them is to be a Google follower of my blog and comment on this post. Easy!! I will then select the lucky winner in two weeks time with random.org and notify you all of the result. The winner can then provide me with their postal address and I will send the package off!
I will finish this post with a few interesting statistics from the last 199 posts and my thanks to my loyal followers:-
All time history of page views = 26,890
Number of comments to date: 6,953
Blog with the most views = Mystery French classic car update 401 viewings
Second = Some bugs and insects around our Charente garden 205 viewings
Top 3 page views (by country) =
United Kingdom 6,245
United States 6,124
My blog has been viewed in 105 different countries; I am amazed and delighted but I think there are still another 60 countries out there which I must attract!!
At this milestone, my sincere thanks go to all my followers for their dedicated interest and comments to date; however, the most viewings from one person, have been made by my blogger friend Jean , so my thanks and appreciation go especially to her. I hope I can continue to find and write about subjects which will continue to attract and interest my followers.
Good luck with the give-away competition!
