TODAY MARKS MY 4TH YEAR BLOGGING!  I can't believe I've been literally 'yakking' on the 'net for that long!  So, to  mark the occasion, I'm doing another giveaway.
To be in to win a Casserole holder and 5 cards of mine, all you have to do is LEAVE A COMMENT, and tell me :

- How much water (approx)  do I drink in a day
- What's me favourite colour
- two things I LOVE to do!

It's that simple!  If you 'know me at all' you will know the answers.

I will draw the winner on Friday night,  "Kiwi Time"!   Heee heee hee!

ABOVE:  The winner can choose one of the two Casserole Holders Stew is holding.   I will add 5 cards as well.

ABOVE:  And here's Stew modelling my cutting mat Bag/cover!   He has his uses eh?  lol

Right:  on with today.  Got some housework to do first thing, then it will be time to take Griffin to his Speld Lesson.  I will probably go to Pukekohe while he's there, to kill time.. and maybe shop... maybe...


OH!  BTW... I won't be publishing any comments today .. can't have you getting the answers from someone else can I???  ****    Obviously I haven't mentioned my water consumption much on me blog?  So... the answer to that question is on me sidebar (SOMEWHERE)... you'll just have to look for it!

I'm gunna make this easier AND BETTER!  If you answer 1 question right, you get one chance in the draw.  2 right = two chances, 3 right = three chances!   There ... now I feel better about it.  Everyone will get at least one right eh?

Anyone else been watching the Chilean Miners rescue as it unfolds ?  I have, it's awesome how they have managed to rescue them from such a depth!  Last time I looked at the live feed they had 24 safely up.
Off now to get the boy ....

ABOVE:  Well.... I found this really nice baby wear shop in Pukekohe this morning... how could I resist? 

Home now and it's neat reading the comments... so many of you know me SO WELL!  LOL

Shame I can't publish them yet...

End of Day:  so, lots of comments/answers coming in... keep it up!  You gotta be in to win.
I'm off to put me feet up for a while, my legs/feet are swollen heaps today.  nite nite.

    Hi Chris,

    I am desperate to wiun one of these have been looking for one for years..

    So here goes...

    1. I would guess very little water, i know you do try to drink some, but your chosen beverege would be DIET COKE, given the name of your blog and even the number plates on your car.

    2. Your fav colour is umm, BLUE

    3. Two things you love to do are... Blog and read blogs and Sew, which might I add on the sewing you make some pretty funky things.

    Hope all is well in your world. Take care

  9. Water? ZILCH!!!

    Favourite colour - orange?? No kidding - it's BLUE!

    Two things you love to do?

    And if I don't win I want to buy a casserole holder at some stage.

  10. Oh - you also love changing around rooms, furniture etc.... does this give me another chance?

  11. Anonymous9:05 AM

    Okay - fairly new to it all but will give it a go.

    1) Trick question because you don't like or drink water.

    2) Blue!!!

    3) - this is the guess bit.... you like shopping (like me!!) and you like sewing and you like it when family gets together... you like your feet licked by your dogs!! You also like reading and commenting on other people's blogs when you have time....

    How'd I do???

    Have a goodie!

    Kate Rogers ( or on FACEBOOK!

  12. 1. you don't drink water
    2. blue
    3. shoping (like me) and sewing

    I like your model (Stew)-he could just start modelling. :)
    How do you get him to model for you (and all of us)?

    Easy questions


  20. Happy Blogaversary!

    You drink no water, zero, none, nada... because, hello?? you drink Diet Coke!

    Your favorite color is blue, and

    You love to shop and sew (craft, quilt, etc)

    Yes, the rescue effort has been tremendous. Those miners certainly have courageous, indomitable spirits.

  21. 1. O on the water....It's Diet Coke for you.

    2. Blue

    3. Sew and Stew

    I almost answered these about myself-then I would have sounded like a real twit, though I am not a water drinker either.

  22. You ... drink water? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    That would be ... NONE!


    sewing and and anything sea related.

  23. Hey Woman! Congrats on your fourth year blogging! I am on a self-imposed blogging break, but I just had to enter your give away! :o)

    Okay, here are my answers:

    1. You don't drink any water at all!
    2. Your favorite color is blue.
    3. Two things you LOVE to do are go shopping and make cards.

    Not sure about the third answer because you love to do a lot of things, but those are my guesses and I'm sticking to them! LOL!!!

    Have a great day!



  24. Hey Chris

    So, lets see... you drink NO water at all, your fave colour is blue, and you love to make cards and do patchwork. How did I go?

    Well, you could add:

    Read blogs
    Write blogs
    play with your dogs
    be around your lovely model Stew.

    So, anyway, good luck to everyone and hopefully it's ME! It must be just about my turn to win something :-)
