Look at my lovely prizes!

I was just about to blog and call it 'I seriously need some Valium' after another morning stuck in the house because of the rain with 2 small children when the postman arrived (actually its a post lady - how sexist am I?). There was nothing exciting just a load of wet soggy bills as usual. Then suddenly 2 minutes later Izzy shouted 'the post lady is coming back' so I opened the door to find a box on the door step. It was only my giveaway prize from Emma at Jelly Belly Jelly Brain. Ages ago I won a giveaway on her blog for some Cadbury Creme Eggs. It was a while ago and when they hadn't arrived after a month or so I had this debate in my head about whether to contact her or not. I'm not sure what the blog etiquette is for missing giveaway prizes. I wasn't worried about not receiving it just that it might have gone astray in the post and she would think me rude for not saying thanks. Then I worried that if I did contact her she would think 'what a weirdo' getting so worked up about a couple of creme eggs (I think I may have 'issues' as these are the sorts of things I worry about!!) anyway I completely forgot about it until today when the box arrived and it was certainly worth the wait because it didn't just contain creme eggs, oh no, there was.........

1) The most gorgeous cupcake needle case with some cute pins inside. I practically hyperventilated when I saw it.

2) A gorgeous padded heart

3) A cute little button purse - Izzy bagsied this immediately

4) A cute little shabby chic heart with gingham ribbon

5) A cute little bunny hanging thing - Izzy has already put this in her bedroom

6) A sweet little badge and 7) a gorgeous button ring which fits perfectly

AND some creme eggs

Emma you have no idea how much this cheered me up today. You have stopped me turning to valium and for that I thank you!! I am no longer grumpy mummy but happy muumy who loves life again. I LOVE everything you sent. I'm off to find some more giveaways.........


  1. Lucky you! I love the button purse. I got a great swap parcel last week, it is so nice to get random presents! This weather is rubbish isn't it. Kate x

  2. Sorry it took so long to send them out, but I wanted to make sure I had stuff to include, and well, that's what took the time!
    By the way - have you noticed the "eat by date" on the eggs - end of July ... so get eating them!

  3. I know exactly how you feel - to contact or not to contact that is the question!

    Lovely give aways,

  4. I love getting things in the post. Not the bills obviously, if they fell down the back of the postie's seat I wouldn't worry too much about it:)

    And I know what you mean about the rain, we're going a bit spare around here too.

  5. Oh how I wish this box landed on my doorstep this morning! Lucky, lucky you, I would choose creme eggs over valium any day too (well, almost any day!). Enjoy your lovely goodies
