Birthday give-away!

It was my birthday on Sunday and I spent a lovely day with friends - it was a beautiful day so we ate and played and chatted outside. I realise more and more that I have so much to be grateful for and I´d like to give something away...anyone who leaves a comment on this post over the next week has a chance to win my version of the bag on the cover of the Japanese book I mentioned in my last post. I´ll put all your names on bits of paper, put them in a box and draw a winner. I hope those of you who drop in without leaving comments (I have a counter so I know you´re out there!) will be motivated to do so, good luck!!!
Congratulations, send your address to me at kangoo1atgmxdotat and your little gift can be on it´s merry way!

I´ve decided to write about 8 things that have made me smile over the last few weeks...

A package from Darlene, my partner in the tea-towel swap and from Mirre because she´s a lovely and generous person.

A beautiful new magazine my boss bought for me on a holiday in France.
The film "Little Miss Sunshine. (I adore Toni Colette!)

Our amazing cat Larry who thinks he´s a human.
Eating breakfast outside.

My first Japanese craft book (atlast!) which I bought here. Now I know what all the fuss is about.
My new journal.
