That's right folks this is my 1000th post and no is more surprised than me that I've made it this far.

I started this blog way back in December 2003 when blogging was just starting to get popular and I thought I should give it a go.  At the time I was a full time Mum working part time in retail and didn't really have much to say about anything and didn't have a camera to be able to post pics either so for several years nothing really happened with it.

For at least a couple of years I used MSN live as a place to waffle about my life and now it sadly no longer exists and those posts are lost (just thing had I copied them over then I'd of been writing this along time ago!) but I did transfer my favourite post ever over and I'm so glad I did.

I started getting fed up with MSN in 2006/2007 I really didn't like some of the changes they made and so I came back to blogger having forgotten I'd already set up an account here.

I made my first 'proper' post here on September 17 2007 and haven't been that quiet since.

To celebrate the milestone I decided to do a little giveaway and started looking round for something to make for it and this is what I came up with.

To enter just comment on this post and make sure you leave a way for me to get in touch with you, that's it no jumping through hoops or having to post on your blog to get more chances but those folks that have commented in the last week get entered anyway.

I'll leave it open for a week so you have until midnight GMT on March 9th to enter.

And on to the next 1000 posts

Congratulations Lyndsay - that's a lot of blog posts. Please don't include me in the giveaway since I won your lovely beaded needlecase the last time. It's still one of my favourite needlework accessories.
