I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Wonderful people and some fantastic giveaways

Well, hello again....

It feels like a very long time since I was last here, and it's even a longer time since I did some blog "stalking".  There are over a 1,000 blogs in my Google Reader... oh my goodness, how did I ever get so far behind! 

The answer is easy - I have been so busy at work over the last few weeks that I haven't had time to spend me customary 1/2 hr or so at lunchtime catching up on everyone news, and the weekends I have been too tired to even turn the computer on.  So, today I have been making a very concerted effort to catch up and visit as many blogs as possible.  And I will do some more catching up tomorrow...

While visiting blogs today I have seen that there are some very lovely people out there having the most wonderful giveaways.  I have posted links to some of the ones that I found below:

Giveaway Number 1:
Bec at Bec's Cross Stitch Creations is celebrating achieving 100 followers by having a lovely giveaway.   Lots of lovely things including a really pretty stitched biscornu and bookmark. Wander on over and sign up before she announces the winner on Friday 29th July 2011 (Aussie EST).

Giveaway number 2:
I found this blog today via Joyce's blog (Random Ramblings).  Measi at Measi's Musing: Ramblings of a Geeky Witch is having a summer fun giveaway.  Why not pop in and visit Measi and sign up for her giveaway.  If you also post a mention of her giveaway on your blog she will enter you for a second time in the draw.  This giveaway ends on 31st July with the winner being announced on 1st August.
