Among the Gumtrees Prize winner!

First off I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who sent their warm wishes to me and assure you that I am fine, My leg has had an external fixiture on it for 3 months now and it is time for it to come off. I have a mild infection in one of the pin sites, which is why I was admitted to hospital early.

Just to prove that I am fine - I managed to talk the Dr into letting me stay home on the first day for my sons 1st birthday party and just had to have some IV antibotics before I went home, then of course my stitching day was on the 2nd day, so I talked him into letting me go to that, I just had to have some more Antibioltics in the morning and was admitted that night. So anyway, all is fine, I am just counting down the days until they will send me to Sydney to have my metal removed :) yeah!

Now as I mentioned yesterday I will be away and hopefully in Surgery on the day that I am supposed to draw the winner of my Among the Gum Trees competition so I decided to draw the prize a couple of days early. I truly appologise if you didn't get a chance to get your entry in, however I'm sure you understand my dilemour.

I am soooo happy to announce the winner of my competition! She is a massive fan of Christmas and even has a blog dedicated to it! Funnily enough I was just looking at her blog last night! (I was hunting around making sure everyone deserved their 3 entry's hehe) Amazing! Anyway without further ado I announce the winner is 'drum roll please'


Congratulations and thank you for entering my competition! I will be in contact soon!

And now, Until I'm back from Hospital I will say so long. Remember take a look at my fellow Gum Tree Designers blogs if you are after a good read! All their blogs are listed on the left side of my blog.
