Are you like me, enter raffles and prize draws run for good causes in the CERTAIN knowledge that you’ve really made a donation as you never win anything? Well my mantra is going to have to change from”I never win…” to “I sometimes do!”. English reticence prevents me from running around shouting “I WON! I WON!” ……. “I WON!”.
What did I win? Oh boy. I came home on Monday evening after a L-O-N-G day at work. I thought I’d better check my emails and there was a Facebook message from the lovely Adrienne owner of Williams Wools saying:
“Your Big Pink Pig is ready for collection when you are! Congratulations! xxx”
Of course my response was suitably subdued:
“OMG!!!! I can’t believe it, wow…. best cheer up after long day at work ever. Thank you the pig is AMAZING. I’ll be in on Saturday!!!! Mxxx”
I have kept you in suspense long enough…this is what or should I say who I won
beautifully knitted in gorgeous soft wool by talented knitter JCo to raise money for Linda’s charities during Mintfest say hello to the latest addition to my household: a lovely big Frickel pig of my very own.
I hadn’t gone very much further – just reached the market – when I saw another woolly friend LSt and Big Pink had a more suitable name. I’ve decided to take him with me on my travels – an adventure yet to be revealed – as a reminder of Linda, my home town of Kendal and my friends woolly and otherwise. LSt thought as he is to be a traveling pig his name should be Lawrence (Laurie to his friends) after Lawrence of Arabia. Laurie (or Lorry!) it is.
Lorry has been checking out his new home and seems particularly happy in the garden
keeping an eye on my sock making.
This week happily destroyed two of my personal myths, Mondays are ‘orrible and “I never win anything”. Love it when that happens.
Hope you too had a good week. Roll on Monday morning….
Until next we meet, Moke x
