Well a few weeks ago i started entering lots of competitions, reckoned somebody's got to win them - anyway, it has come up trumps! I got an email a couple of weeks ago to say that we had won a family holiday to either Greece, Turkey or Morocco - i was a bit sceptical at first as you would be but then i realised i had actually entered this comp (it was through Lidl in associatio with Walkers crisps) and all the details matched up.

We decided on Turkey as we haven't been there before and everyone i spoke to said it was lovely - i've had a couple of emails since and we are just awaiting the booking confirmation to stay here - Arum Hotel -. We chose to go next summer in the school hols, so we are flying out 30th June from Glasgow for a week - I am so excited!!!!!

The kids had been asking if we were going anywhere but i had had to explain to them that we couldn't afford it for next summer, so this has just come at the right time - we've had a pretty crap year this year what with one thing and another so this couldn't have come at a better time - now i just need to win some spending money lol!!

No stitchy pics to show at the moment - working on a couple of Christmas exchanges so they will have to wait till they have been received.. as it is the start of the month tomorrow i'll set some goals -

1. finish F&S christmas square and post
2. finish Friendly Stitchers exchange and post
3. start back on rotation - birth sampler, joe's stocking, Chatelaine St. Pete's
