And the winner is .... still helping me to declutter!! As you will see further down this post ;-)
I decided to do the draw the old-fashioned way, with strips of paper and a hat. Every time I use the automatic number generator thingys I can't get them to publish on my post and it looks like I've made it all up!!
So after much writing down the names of those of you who entered, checking and double checking I snipped away and folded the slips ..... then I went in search of a 'hat'.
I couldn't find one upstairs and being in a lazy Monday morning mood decided to make use of whatever I laid my eyes on first in the bedroom.
Now as we don't have a po/potty/gazunder/chamber pot under the bed (aren't you really glad about that one!!) I decided to use one of the wooden bowls on the chest of drawers.
Looking at the top of the chest of drawers through my new 'declutterers' eyes I thought 'what a mess'.
So I whittled it down a bit and gave it all a good polish in the process.
But I can't make my mind up about the lamp. We've had it there since we moved in last Christmas, but it has not been switched on even once. So the vote is going to you. Does it look better with the lamp ...
... or without it?
Anyway .... back to business, the little slips were put in the smaller bowl and held up by my left hand to a height where I couldn't see the slips and then my right hand (which is much more unbiased than my left one) was asked to do the draw.
The winner is .... insert fanfare, or drum roll ... or just scroll down, depending on your Monday morning mood ...
(I chose the fanfare option.)
Who by clicking on her name I found out has her Blog over HERE
So Vivien if you could drop me an email with your full postal address I will set the book of on it's journey to you. And as Vivien is as big a declutterer as me it might be worth keeping an eye on her Blog because no doubt the book will be travelling on again pretty soon.
Many thanks to all those of you who took the time to leave comments to be entered into the draw and indeed to all those of you who leave comments on any blog post I write. Your feedback sometimes keeps me on the straight and narrow and always makes this blogging world a delight to be a part of.
So four more items from the top of the chest of drawers to go into my charity shop bag, which means four less items in the house. I'm making it my mission to take a bag of things into town whenever I go in from now until Christmas.
Happy Monday folks ..... and here's to lots more decluttering.
