Day 138- Give away Launch

Standard

Good morning, afternoon, evening. How are we all? Are the flags out? Things are hotting up in the rolling hills. Literally 1 and 1/2 hours to go before the opening ceremony. DH returned home with olympic posters, flags….you name it. To say he is excited is an understatement!

Anyway folks; down to business. An Olympic themed give away.

I decided to launch the giveaway as the deadline, which I will tell you about in a moment, will collide with the half way point of my 365 days. So to celebrate with all of you that have tuned in to read my witterings, I put my mind to the task of thinking up something that would be easy to do, but then would also give a lucky winner a reward.

So what do you have to do?

Well for those of you that have tuned in for a period of time, you will know that I am a sports widow. Since the 6th of July 2005, this summer has been planned…in DH’s head anyway. The Olympics has been growing in momentum since then and it is nearly upon us.

I know that some of you will not be bothered about this particular world sports day…but spare a thought for those of us that have to be bothered whether we want to or not! The give away is for you too….promise.

I decided that as this is a creative and making blog, then what you have to do should be along these lines too. There are therefore three ways you can enter, all doing nothing more than commenting under this post.

You will have two weeks and three days to enter. The giveaway competition will begin today and last until the closing ceremony.

After the closing ceremony all names will be entered into a hat and a Rooster will pick the winning name.

But what do you win?

Tadah! Feather filled, 100% cotton patchwork Union Flag cushion measuring 30 x 25 cm approx.  I love it so much I have made a large one and small one to adorn my sofa.

So what do you have to do?

  • Tell about a creative way you are celebrating throughout the olympics.  EG. An opening/ closing ceremony party, an event BBQ (eg Men’s hockey final), rejoicing in a gold medal win of your favourite athlete etc.
  • Comment on where in the world you are watching the Olympics. Telling the event that you are watching, and the time that you are watching…I know some of you may be up in the night or very early morning to see.
  • Don’t like the Olympics? Tell us about the creative ways that you are avoiding it all. Have you booked a 2 week cruise down the Nile? Decided to climb Everest?

You can include a photo if you want or email it to me at ayearonthemake@gmail.com and I will post it for you.

After you have commented, sit back and relax.  The winner will be drawn on Sunday 12th August 2012.

Good Luck xxxxx

  1. Love watching the Olympics so much! My friends and I always have a pre-Olympic party and we watch the Olympics together! 🙂 We’re in VA

  2. This is a great idea. Thanks for doing this give-away. The hubster and I are obsessed with the Olympics. But most of the time we root for different teams. He’s American and I am German. These small rivalries make for good entertainment and lots of shouting at the TV. We pretty much watch any and all Olympic events, but I am partial toward gymnastics, volleyball, and track and field while he favors cycling, gymnastics, and swimming. All in all, the TV is pretty much on throughout the whole Olympics, and if events are not shown on TV we’ll watch it online.
