January Giveaway

It's here! After the fall, redemption. Or something to beat those winter blues, anyway. Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer is hosting another bloggy carnival.

href="http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/reviews/fall-yall-bloggy-giveaway.html" target="_blank">Photobucket



Now here's the thing. I had my giveaway item planned months ago. I put it in a safe place. A very safe place. So safe that I can't find it anywhere. I won't tell you what it was; I know it'll turn up one day and then it'll be ready and waiting for the next one. Instead, I tried to find items from my house, which would give an idea of who I am. Hmmm. I came up with two possibilities. Actually, I came up with lots of possible items to represent my life, but I thought that disposeable gloves, empty medicine pots, piles of nappies, and general clutter just might not be terribly attractive to others. And almost certainly not worth the postage.

So, here's what I've got for you.
This is a Christmas present which never got sent. That's fairly representative of my life too. I know the person who would have received it will not now want it, January and February being the traditional eat nothing sweet and sugary months, so here's hoping it'll be attractive to one of you.

This is a tin of Luxury Biscuits (UK biscuits that is - cookies, not scones!). Made by Border, they are handbaked Scottish Biscuits - "9 varieties of chocolate and plain biscuits baked to our original recipes using only the finest ingredients". Don't fancy the biscuits? It's still a very nice tin; enjoy that and pass the biscuits on!

To enter, just leave a comment. If you don't have a blog, please leave your email address.

Last month's biscuits/cookies don't offend me at all. I'll gladly have them with my morning coffee, and I might even share them with my kids! ;-)

BTW are US entries accepted as far as shipping? I'm in the US. And I would gladly take a pile of your (clean) nappies as a prize if you happen to lose this tin of biscuits. I have 2 in diapers/nappies still. (For 3 months in 2006, I had all 3 kids in diapers.)
