And the winners are...........!

It’s almost 2 weeks since I have been home ! How time flies ! There has been lots of bunny clipping, cleaning, paperwork (yuck) and spinning and dyeing again. It has also been raining almost non stop here which makes it a very dangerous exercise to feed the animal slipping down the slopes and ofcourse getting wet and cold. We have had about 100 mm of rain in the last couple of days! I call that excessive, so if anybody needs some extra water, please let me know ;-) Paul and I have been thinking about engineering a waterwheel to produce electricity from all this water that makes us feel like we are in the midst of the Niagara waterfalls. Even the chooks are soaked..lol

Anyway, life is back to “normal” …with hospital visits, cancer check ups, dentist appointments (all yuck..but necessary) and getting the flu that apperently is raging here there and everywhere. So now I am inundating myself with vitamins and long sleeps (yes I know! so not like me!,,lol) However, there was definitely something that still had to be done : picking the winners of the Bendigo Lottery ! Everybody who spent $50 or more received a ticket at the Bendigo Show in the Flowershed where I had my stall this year, with a lucky bunny number to fill out to get a chance to win fibre prizes ! And today is the day!!!!!! Are you ready????????drrrrrrrumm rrrrroooolllllllllllllllll.............................................!

the prizewinners have been picked this morning with the help of Gilderoy our gold angora boy who loves "reading" meaning nibbling paper :) I put the tickets in a huge tub and the tickets he had a nibble on were the winning tickets ! I thought that was the best way to ensure objectivity...lol Here are the lucky winners !!!
