... strings of tension waiting to be struck.

I too have prayer beads in hand.
They have been very useful
ever since I realised last night
that I'd COMPLETELY forgotten
ALL ABOUT MY VACCINATIONS!
Which gave rise to a lovely discussion between three girlfriends
about all the horrible diseases I was likely to catch while I away...
If I wasn't vaccinated
... did I mention my car's broken down
and has been for two weeks?
Lucky I have a bike
and strong shoulders
Anyway, I don't need a car to announce the winners of the giveaway.
Thanks to the horsey, arty, muddy fingers of my 3 messmonsters
We drew 3 lucky numbers!
Once I had wiped the smudges off the paper
these are the names I found:
Julie, from Being Ruby!
(A chic chick whom many of you know already, and if you don't you should)
Helen Lewis, from Illuminating Words
(who popped by for the first time to join the game - and won!)
Caterina at La Dolce Vita
(Whose fabulous talent I very much admire)
I do wish I could send something to all of you.
Maybe I will when I get back from India
Create a giveaway where everybody wins
a trinket, a colour, a thought, a word
Just for fun!!
In the mean time I'd better get to bed with those prayer beads
Or more than one messmonster is likely to strike my own chords of tension
tomorrow morning ;-)
Bonne nuit and love to you all
PS - don't forget to email me your addresses tomorrow girls!
