Just Another Day in Paradise...

Or, at least,
it would feel and look pretty much like paradise if
only it wasn't so freezing cold..!

I finally got round to making a list of all those eligible for my
Birthday giveaway

The lake this morning (air temp. -8°C) looking towards Veyrier

So, with the help of my girls, we cut the list into strips, folded them tightly
and popped them all into an old straw hat...
The hat was shaken several times before one folded paper strip
was selected by youngest daughter
(who, incidently, wanted to select a winner plus two runners-up - not just one winner..!)

And the winner is...

Do check out her delightful blog
Oh, and I've decided to list all participants below so you can visit
their fantastic blogs too...


As I post, I'm listening to the soundtrack of the Ballet we enjoyed
(despite having already seen it several times)
at the Covent Garden Opera House just before Christmas,
I'm still under the spell...

My photos of my ticket, the programme...
