The Big 200 and My Give Back!

I have now reached an amazing 200 followers! To celebrate this mile stone I am going to have a special giveaway, or as I read on another blog recently, a 'give back'.
In view of recent posts 'give back' seems much more apt as I have been overwhelmed by all the kind thoughts and advice so many of you have sent me.
 All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post and be a follower of this Blog.
I have a 1/48th dolls house kit all ready for three winners. I saw these a couple of weeks ago at a craft fair and they look ideal for a mini project. I will also send a couple of surprise treats with each house because it is nearly Christmas!
The draw will take place on Monday the 7th of December so the winners will receive their packages before Christmas. Good Luck! 

We met with a number of professionals on Friday and I have to say the sense of relief I feel is huge. I have done all I can now and have found the best care and advice possible in view of the situation. The rest is out of my hands, other than to try and minimise any social effects that occur if the **** truly hits the fan. 
So, time to look forward and there is always Malaysia to escape to!
Happy days!!

  4. Hi Janice, Congrats on the 200 followers!! what a wonderful idea to have a 'give back' those kits look like they will be lots of fun for whoever wins them :o) Im glad you can breathe a sigh of relief at last, tis very stressful keeping it all in. Its good that you have a plan in place even if the situation isnt ideal, at least you can move forwards a little. I'm always here for you if you need help xxx
