A big round of applause please ....

Not for me but for Sian over at Diary of a Tinyholder who is working relentlessly at the moment to raise funds for the Alzheimers Society .... such a worthwhile cause I am sure you will all agree.  I should think every family in the land has been touched in some way or another by this cruel disease ... my own nan, mother in law and sister in law all succumbed to its evil clutches at the end of their lives.

At the end of last year I bought some tickets for Sian's vintage eiderdown draw via the Just Giving website .... I am not usually lucky in such things despite how many tickets I purchase but can you imagine my surprise and delight when I realised I had won!!!

With all the kerfuffle of Christmas and snowbound delivery peeps I told Sian not to worry about posting it till things got back to normal ..... then that law of sod came into play on Saturday, the only morning I had gone out all week and what happens ..... the bliddy postman tries to deliver it .... aghhhhh  ..... frustration, now I had to wait until today to go to the sorting office and collect it.

Well it was worth the wait .... excuse the quality of my photo as I have had to take them on my phone because I cannot find the download cable for my camera at the moment .... it seems to have disappeared in the black hole that is my home.

Are you ready ?????

Pretty pink floral cotton with a peachy frilled edging and feather filled and in lovely condition.

Don't be afraid to admit you are just a tincy wincy bit jealous and if you fancy helping Sian raise even more funds for some wonder Cath Kidston goodies visit this link NOW!


  1. What an amazing prize, and I agree that raising money for the Alzheimers Society is a great cause. Both my grandparents had the disease too, as you say most families have been touched by it in some way.

  7. That looks wonderful - if the snow returns you'll be cosy under that!! My MIL suffered from early onset of Alzheimers. Such a creul and heartbreaking disease. xxx
