If you’re anything like me then you’re re-watching your favourite Christmas films, getting squidgy around the middle from all the end-of-year parties and counting down the work days until your holidays begin. It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
It’s been a tumultuous year but one I’ll look back on with heaps of good memories. If I had to pick three highlights of 2011, they would be:
1. Getting in to the One Book Many Brisbanes anthology.
2. Settling into my first house. (I’m still trying to erase the misery of buying the house from my mind.)
3. Walking a tiger for my birthday. Here’s the proof.
Well, walking is a strong word. It was a hot day and the lovely 4yo, Kaitlyn, felt like lying down in the grass rather than walking which gave me more time to chill out with her at Australia Zoo.
But enough about me. Christmas is almost here, and it’s the season for giveaways!
I’ll be giving away two copies of the One Book Many Brisbanes anthology on my blog.
If you would like to put your name in the hat (yep, I’m old fashioned like that), tell me one of your 2011 highlights in the comments section. The giveaway is only open to those with an Australian mailing address. (Sorry to those from far-off places!)
Get in quick. I’ll be closing the freebie draw at midnight on 18 December so I can mail the books out before Christmas. (Fingers crossed.) I’ll update this post when the winners have been announced.
If I don’t hear from you, then I wish you a lazy, fun-filled Christmas and a peaceful beginning to 2012. xo
**UPDATE: Well, I put the names in my straw summer hat and asked the boy to draw out two lucky winners. Congratulations to Lynn Priestley and Sara M! Email me your postal addresses for your copy of the One Book Many Brisbanes 6 anthology.**
