Surgery is over,1000+ followers, and a giveaway to celebrate!

Thanks for your prayers and kind wishes for mum. She's home and resting after the surgery...
Her surgeon likes to write on his patients with black permanent marker. We hope we can get it off or she'll look like she has the weirdest tattoo! LOL!
~~~~~~
Mum would also like to thank all her followers! We have just noticed that as of today there are over 1000 of you!! 
Naturally this means mum wants to have a giveaway to celebrate! \o/
Just leave a comment on this post and you'll be in the draw to win a copy of this book (a favourite of hers!)...
She'll draw the winner on August 17th - the day her stitches come out. :-)
Hugs
Blossom

  81. So glad it is over and all went well. I guess a tattoo is better than surgery on the wrong finger, but so big???? Try Shout or Spray and Wash--it gets it out of white t-shirts. Why do I know that???

  145. I love the title of this book. "The gentle art..." mmm..I wonder if I can open this book with my fearless seamripper in hand. Sounds like my seamripper just might burst into flames!
    Your "tattoo" could be worse. It could be your phone number....with the additional words "for a good time call".... Hope you are feeling better!

  185. Good luck Jenny and congrats on all those followers. My suggestion re the "tattoo" is make the surgeon take it off. It's his mess and he should clean it up. lol

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
