We have a winner!

Drumroll please...

Hey!  It's time to draw the name of the winner of the big Giveaway Bonanza. Remember that? Thirty-three Australian residents signed up for a chance to win a package of goodies designed to inspire their writing muse.  Microsoft Office 2010, a beautiful journal, a pen to doodle in said journal, irrelevant heart-shaped stickers, some books to read, coffee and tea to imbibe, and a gorgeous 5-year-old child.

Can we have a name please?  Reach in deep, shuffle them around, stop smirking elder child and...

Anna, can you show us what name he pulled out?**

Tenille from Help!Mum!!  Yay Tenille!!

I'm so excited! Love Tenille. She lives in Wollongong. Or Sydney. Or somewhere between Sydney and Wollongong.  Anyway, she sometimes blogs - cover your ears children - about dildos (not making this up).

Okay, (packing packing) is that everything?  And remember what I said, baby?
If the customs guy tries to take the coffee just bite his hand.

Be a good boy okay?  Send Mommy lots of postcards with pretty pictures.  I like
Uluru.  Lifeguards are good too.  Mmm, really going to miss you sweetie.

Okay Tenille.  I just need your address now.  Can you send it to me at kb@flaghussy dot com?  Microsoft guy will mail you the software and I'll mail you the rest of the loot. 

Danny will love love love your little girl.  He's great with toddlers.
Will probably need a potty break first thing when he arrives.  And a sandwich.

Thanks everyone for participating in the giveaway!  Let's do it again sometime (and let everyone play, regardless of whether I crush on their countrymen)

* For those of you who read something last night about a video, er, that didn't quite work out.  Something about 5 hours of sleep, a kid's birthday party and me sucking at technology.  Maybe next time hey.

** Full discosure: name actually chosen by and planted in hat.  Just to be totally fair.  This may explain smirk on elder child's face.  Don't judge me.

  1. That's fantastic! I'm going to be laughing all day.

  2. Hehe... nice work. Tenille will enjoy all that. Especially the small child. Oh, but not the coffee... she can give that to me :-)

    Not too many lifeguards here right now though - a bit cold this time of year.

  3. heck, good thing I wasn't eligible! Not wanting any munchkins at my age! lol

  4. Congrats to Tenille!!! :)

  5. Oh my goodness! Way too funny! It looks like your kids were having lots of fun too! Super cute!

  6. Congratulations, Tenille!
    Kristin, your son looks ready to go! LOL!

  7. Ooh I hope you poked plenty of airholes in the box! Any maybe found one of those astronaut nappies; it's a long trip.

    Yay for me! That's very awesome, thank you :-)

  8. You know, Tenille lives in one of my favourite spots in the world. Wollongong and the Illawarra has a big piece of my heart. Congrats, Tenille

  9. @ Watershedd, you know I may be spreading gross rumors and crediting her with living somewhere she doesn't actually. How about I just publish her address when I get it and we'll put it all to rest? Good.

  10. Random hates me. Hates me.

    Yay Tenille!

  11. GELLARSSE!!!
    She won my giveaway last week as well. She is one lucky sod. I wanted this prize lusty! Especially your son. Mine have become lazy-asses and I need a new one to train up in cocktail making...

  12. @ Veronica - not really, it picked you on the 4th try (playing, playing, couldn't stop playing with it).

    Don't worry peeps, I went with the first one!

  13. @ Woog - WHAT?! She won yours TOO?! So random is rigged?

    Tell you what. Remember that email I sent you. That little deal-eo we worked out? Remember that?? You get to work on MY, ahem, *prize* and I'll draw your name out of a hat for a fanFUCKINGtastic prize. Kay? Kay?


  14. Look at you hot mama you. Hehe.

  15. YAY Tenille.

    Had to laugh at the goodbye kiss!

  16. @ Everyone else but WOOG - the *prize* referred to above has nothing to do with blog giveaways. Nothing untoward going on. It's entirely, well... Just. Nevermind.

  17. Congrats Tenielle!! Enjoy the kid ;)

  18. Hey Tenille - can I send you my kids too?

    Wanderlust - you'll have to explain this random org thing to me one day...

  19. How much was the postage? Do they charge more for a 25 year old?

  20. Haha... this is just too funny... and next time let us all play Kristin please....

  21. ex-shnay on the draw-yay lusty.

    Tenille go by a lottery ticket, you lucky cow!
