Our Birthday Party and giveaway winners

There was so much excitement as we started to gather for our Blog Birthday Party, we had all been in to have a look at the Sales Display and give a big thumbs up and thank you to the wonderful job of setting up that the Thursday night girls had done.

And what do you think Janet is smilingly casting her eye over?
Why this luscious cream sponge of course, complete with sparkler.

 As luck would have it, there was quite a stiff breeze blowing yesterday, making lighting that sparkler quite the challenge.

Lorraine and Sheila, snaffled the sparkler and used the building as a windbreak, and success was theirs.
There was much singing, of happy birthday, and then a resounding rendition of 'for he's a jolly good fellow', words slightly changed to 'she' and 'blogger' was a bit overwhelming actually...........but greatly appreciated.  Thank you Sheila and everyone there yesterday for your very kind words of support, but really, our blog is only a success because of the fantastically talented work that you girls do.

Lorraine then kindly cut the cake into pieces for us all to tuck into, and Sheila and Patricia, poured us tea and coffee and just generally worked hard at making the day a wonderful success.

And so home to await 5 o'clock and have a go at the random number generator. 
It worked beautifully, I took a pic of each and every winners number but folks, I hope you will forgive me, I'm just loading the one, after all, with all those lovely goodies to drool over on yesterdays post, who wants to scroll down past 12 pics of basically the same without further ado............the first prize winner is................
