WE HAVE A WINNER


This morning I got a phone call from 'Your Home and Garden' magazine. Ages ago I entered one of their competitions (you know, fill out your contact details on the back of an envelope, post it off and never hear anything). Well today I heard something.

I've won $1000 worth of my choice of linen from Wallace Cotton! $1000 - wow! When I looked at their website I discovered that their lovely range of linens are very reasonably priced. That means I'll be able to get duvet covers, sheets, cushions and maybe a throw rug or two FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!

I told Elliot. "You can choose a new duvet cover for your room."
He cried. "But, Mama, I only want to keep my Spongebob duvet cover. I don't want a new one."

Guess the guest bedroom gets a makeover, then, too!

Wow, I'll bet that was a nice surprise, I guess it does to keep filling in those forms! $1000, that'll do that house just nicely, just had a nosey around the site, some nice products there. Me, my husband is still miffed that I removed the Holden duvet cover from our bed, in favour of something a little more tasteful!

Oh fun! The last time I bought a new doona cover my mum liked it so much she had me go buy the same one for her too. We figure it doesn't matter as, apart from the grandkids, there's no-one likely to be going in to both our bedrooms.
