I won a blog makeover!


Now, in order for you to get the full story, I need to give you a little bit of background information......

First up is a photo of two lovely bloggy friends who I had the good fortune to meet up with in April this year. In case you didn't know, there was a large autism conference that was being held in Dublin, Ireland. I convinced the Hub's that it was extremely important for me to attend the two day affair, cough, splutter! Anyhow, nice man that he is, saw right through me but had the good grace to say that he would look after the kids ~ if I organised every minute of each day that I was away!
Candi, Di and Val
Ignore the teapots!

 Moving right along...

A while back (I think around a year ago), Candi sent me the link for a blog that she thought I would find interesting. AND, it wasn't an autism blog! I had never thought of looking at any other blogs besides those that focused on autism ~ very short sighted of me. Thank you, Candi, for thinking of me. xx

Ta Da........... introducing you to VegemiteVix. I love traveling and Kiwis, therefore this blog is right up my street.

Don't ask me how I managed to transfer the following information onto this page... it was a sheer fluke and I can't remember how to do it. :)
Vix story

One day, not so long ago, Vix posted a link for a competition that was being run by another wonderful Kiwi. You can read about Simone right HERE and also learn more about her blog by clicking on the button below. (Yes, I am seriously chuffed that I managed to add the code in order for her blog button to be on this page!). Thank you, Vix, for sharing the information for the competition. xx

Simone was celebrating the fact that she had written 1000 posts and had decided to give away some of her time and expertise. I entered her competition and then, much to my surprise and delight, I won the makeover. I can't tell you enough how thrilled I am with my new look. It's crisp and clean. Simple yet modern. I really like that Simone kept the sea theme, although recreated it to make it more up-to-date and edgy. 
Thank you, Simone for choosing my blog for a Midi-Makeover. You made my day, week and month!
