What's this? Royal Ascot and a Giveaway.

I have had several questions about my last post, so I thought I'd tell you a little more about a "Typical Day at the Races", but first, I have a giveaway for you because .... well, just because really.  It's not my birthday, or my Bloggiversary, it's not to celebrate getting eleventyseven followers, it's just because.

There are some really nice people at a shop group called CSN Stores, based in the UK and the USA, who have given me the chance to give one of you a $40 gift certificate.  How cool is that?  These really nice people sell everything from a bathroom sink to a swing and from a bath to a barbecue.  I have been thinking of revamping our en-suite (sshh, Mr Fixit doesn't know yet) so I was having a browse round, like you do and I found they have some of the coolest bathroom sinks I've ever seen.

 They even had a red glass one which  would be a real economy actually, cos it would match my bath towels! Just head on over to CSN's website to see the variety of things they have, but don't buy the red sink in case they sell out before I get there!

So I had better stop waffling, and tell you how you could win this $40 certificate. You can have up to 3 chances:

1. Leave me a comment, telling me what colour outfit you would wear to Royal Ascot to meet the Queen.
2. Become a follower of my blog and then leave me another comment to say you have.
3. Post about this giveaway on your blog then leave me a comment to say you've done that.

Don't take too long to decide about your outfit though, and leave your comments by midnight on Saturday 19  June, and I will announce the winner on Sunday.

Now I think I've talked enough for this post, so I'll come back later and tell you about a day at the races.


  1. Well, I think I would have to wear lavendar to the Royal Ascot to meet the Queen. Of course the hat would have to be huge, covered in flowers and tipped just a little to one side. I promise to hold my little pinkie out while sipping from a cup ever so demurely.

  2. I'm already a follower of your all the things you do.


  4. Hey Sue, what a generous giveaway, but don't enter me in I only just came over and visit. It's a good giveaway though and some lucky blogger out there will win it -

  5. Good morning Ma'am, what a lovely giveaway.

    Like Nat, I don't need to win it seeing as our bathroom refurbish is already underway - all the walls are back to bare plaster and the plumber comes back on Tuesday for first fix.

    Hope you get lots of lovely comments

  6. Well I'd have to wear green. Very demure up top but either a high split up the side or a bare back just to be the naughty one that everyone talks about.....'remember when that trollop wore that slapperish green dress? Who the queen? No silly, the Noble one....'
    he he he

  7. I follow you. Especially when you go to the shops....

  8. Red, white and blue of course!

  9. I think I'd wear red just because it's my favourite and I wouldn;t want to get lost in the crowd!!

  10. I would have to wear purple! And maybe a big feather hat - you know how much i love feathers......


I love to receive your comments, so please do leave them and wherever possible I will reply to you by email.
