and the winner is...

"take it away Miss Ruby"


"what's that Miss Ruby, you can't see the 'entries' properly...they are all blurry and keep moving around"


"i missed that, you'll have to speak up"
"you are feeling a little queasy and the room is spinning?"


"have you been DRINKING, Miss Ruby ?" (gasp, shock, horror)

"i see, yes, yes...it was quite a lot of responsibility for a wee bunny to take"


"oh Miss Ruby do not start to cry, i will do 'the drawing' for you as our #4 is at school, but let this be a lesson to you...drinking and 'prize giving' responsibilities do not mix"

"right here goes"



"and the winner is"...


HURRAH for 'barefoot no knickers' aka Debi...here is Debi's alter ego...

AT LAST...aint life grand when you're 50 years old and just starting over...hurrah for old age and an understanding old fella who shares my life dream (thanks Chris)...RESOLUTIONS; intend to start a blogg in the new year and post lovely photos of our new life for all you lovely people to share with us old wrinklies...and finish all my sewing projects lying around in messy heaps ofcourse... wish us luck x x x
