So. Today's the day. A Peaceful Day is one today.
♪♪Happy Birthday to Us! ♪♪
This is A Peaceful Day's first birthday. The virtual fairy bread is all prepared - see!
Richele asked me if we were having fun here. Yes, Richele, we are. Lots.
Richele said she was too. Are you?
And so on to the important stuff. The speeches.
The presents, silly! Has there ever been a birthday party without presents? Not at any that I've been involved with, anyhow. I love presents!!
We have lots of presents. We have The Great Aussie Living Book Give Away happening all month. You can still enter #1. There are our Lolly Bags. You can take a first peek at those now too.
Today though I have an extra present. The Actual Day Present, we'll call it.
The Actual Day Present is not a book. Today's present is this lovely tea towel, valued at AU$20.00.
You may recall that I told you when I purchased these tea towels. It's a gorgeous thing, isn't it? By giving away one of these tea towels I am able to support the work of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, one of my dear mother's great passions.
I know that it's a somber thing to read about during all the birthday festivities, but could I ask you to read my old post about this wonderful work and perhaps watch the video? That's all you have to do to enter The Actual Day Present Give Away - leave a comment on this post saying that you've read the old post and watched the video. If you really can't watch Youtube from your computer, perhaps you could take it on yourself to google a bit about this worthwhile cause instead. That's all.
This is The Actual Day Present, and so we will be drawing the winner of this gift tomorrow night. I'd say tonight, but today doesn't finish in some parts of the world until tomorrow, so I'll leave it until today is finished everywhere. Sound fair?
Your chances of winning are pretty good, you know...
