Belated Birthday Celebrations

“It’s my birthday, it’s my birthday, I’m gonna party like it’s my birthday…”

Birthday treats

Well, only like it’s my birthday, because it’s not actually.  I missed the blog-anniversary here last month, so I figured I’d wait a bit and do it properly…  So a year and a month since my very first post, today is such a great day!  The sun is shining here in soggy England, the Olympics kick off tonight, and I am hosting my first ever giveaway!!!!!!!!!  😀

It’s been a fabulous year, and is only just over halfway through!  We’ve had the 60th Jubilee, the wettest summer, now the best week of sun, and of course, the Olympics.  I’m looking forward to seeing some great sport and thoroughly committed athletes show us their stuff!  What about you?  Are you going to be hiding from the TV for the next 16 days, or will you be watching your favourite sport?

Back to the giveaway, birthdays mean presents!!  😀    I have a copy of Winnifred Aldrich’s Metric Pattern Cutting; two un-used Burdastyle magazines, March and July 2011; and a little surprise bundle.  All you need to do to enter is leave a comment below stating which birthday present you’d like, and which if any, event you’ll be looking out for over the next couple of weeks.  All comments to be received by Midnight GMT on Monday 30 July.

March and July 2011 Burdastyle magazines and Metric Pattern Cutting. I’m not showing the suprise bundle, ’cause then it’s not a suprise!

I’m going to be on the lookout for a team of skippers (jump ropers??) called Get Tricky who will be part of the Sports Presentation at the basketball events.   They consist of members of 4 Jump Rope teams from the UK, Belgium and the USA.  See if you can spot them on the TV coverage!

I’ve had a great first year, met loads of other bloggers doing loads of different things, and I’ve learnt a few computer tricks too!  Still have far to go, but I’m loving it!  Here’s to the next year!  Ching ching!  😀
