Look what I won ...

The very talented Linda over at The Funky Junkie was celebrating 30,000 hits on her blog a little while back. I entered along with sooo many other people all hoping and praying. And whilst I was away visiting my parents, I logged onto my dad's computer and spotted my name on her blog. I screamed and ran and told my mum and dad (just like a little kid!), my mum said "isn't that lovely", my dad said "What's the catch?!".
Well I just wanted to thank Linda on here and to spread the talent and love of Linda - The Funky Junkie :) , so a very big THANK YOU Linda, and thanks for your inspiration.
