Moons, trees, stars and a giveaway.

Moon and Trees and Stars

Oh look, what a surprise. Last time I checked in I said I’d be back in a couple of days and here I am over a week later wracked with guilt as usual. Ok, maybe ‘wracked’ is a little strong, but I do sort of feel as if I’ve been cheating on you guys with those floosies over on Tumblr and Twitter. Serial blog adulteress, that’s me.

So here I am with the proverbial bunch of flowers, hoping to earn some small iota of atonement for these weeks of neglect and excuses...  There I go with the drama again, but you get idea. Anyway, it's time for the previously promised giveaway!

Especially for my Blogger friends, I have one A4-size print* of the picture above and each of the two below to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning.

Moon, Tree and Stars

That’s three prizes, so three winners. Unless by some freak of chance someone gets picked out thrice. That’d be a bit heebie-jeebiesish.  Unlikely as it may be, it could happen, though, for I’m going to stick with what appears to be blogger tradition and allow extra entries. Just do any of the following:

- share a link to this giveaway on your own blog;
- follow this blog;
- follow me on Tumblr;
- follow me on Twitter;
- or add me as a contact on Flickr (alternatively, to be fair to those who don’t use Flickr, you can just tell me which of my photos over there is your favourite).

Shameless self-promotion, I know. But sure you can’t blame a girl for trying ;) Anyhow, in your comment let me know if you’ve done any of the above and for each one you’ll get an extra magic ticket in the random-number-generator hat.  And don't worry, all you lovely folk already following here will automatically get an extra entry. I realise a lot of you are already following me elsewhere on the web too, but I’m a bit scatter-brained about these things so don’t forget to remind me!

Now for the timeline. Since I’ve giving up fooling myself and accepted that I just don’t have as much time to blog these days as I used to, I’m going to leave this giveaway open for a little while. I’m due in for surgery in a couple of weeks too and, while I’m expecting it to go well and be back on my feet pretty sharpish, I don’t want to make promises I can’t keep. How does a month sound?

Ok, so I’ll leave it open until the end of September and on Saturday October 1st I’ll announce the winners. Thanks folks and best of luck to you all - though I know that’s a wee bit impossible. Believe me, if I had lots of money I’d send you all something :)

Hello! I know what you mean- I'm slowly trying to resuscitate my blog as well. Summer just got busy and gainful employment really put a cramp in my blogging life. ;-) I hope that your surgery goes very well! Sending lots of happy thoughts your way. All the best to you until we both make it back to blogland again!

micflan said...

Love these!

JJ Beazley said...

All the best with the surgery, Roisin. Hope it eases some of that nastiness you've been having to put up with. If I were a religious man, I'd say a prayer for you (honest!) But since I'm not, er... it's the thought that counts?

sarah elwell said...

Beautiful pictures. I have added you as a contact at Flickr, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. I already promoted your weblog a few weeks ago, I love it here, I love your pictures.

Good luck with the surgery, I hope it goes well and that you recover quickly.

Lizzie said...

These are beautiful! I follow you on Tumblr yo.

Danni said...

Hey ma'am! I'm in the same slacker boat as you these days, I just haven't had the time to blog as often as I used to or would like to. Such is life I suppose! I hope your surgery goes well and you're back to feeling good in no time flat! *hugs*

Danni said...

I'm also officially following you here, twitter and on Flickr. Yay for cross platform friendships! ;-)

Jackie in UK said...

Hi Roisin,

I hope you surgery goes well and you will soon be 'fighting fit' again. I have only recently discovered your blog, bt have added you to my RSS feed - great blog, thank you!

I would love a chance to try and win one of your lovely prints - thank you!

Best wishes for your surgery and recovery, Roisin.
Your pictures are all beautiful!
I'm afraid I don't flick, or tumble, or tweet, otherwise I'd be more than happy to pass the word along.

(Regardless of the lipstick on your collar, the bunch of flowers is graciously accepted.)

AlphaBetsy said...

So much gorgeousness!! Please put me in the running.

partialto said...

These are so lovely, especially that first one! I will throw my hat in the ring since I follow you on tumblr.

In the meantime, I'll be thinking good thoughts for your surgery. Hope procedure and recovery go smoothly and quickly! xo

Róisín said...

Thanks for joining in everyone! Looks like I'm going to have a lot of counting to do come the end of the month :) And thanks for the well wishes too. My doctor reckon's it'll all be fine and hopefully this will be the end of the whole carry on once and for all. Fingers crossed!

Oh, and one last thing, I just want to say sorry for not getting round your blogs much recently. Everytime I sit down for a good blog hopping session the phone rings or someone calls in. Or in the case of last night, I literally fell asleep at my keyboard! I've a lot of catching up to do.

Well, hope all is good with you lovely people and thanks once again for taking part. I really do have the best internet friends :)

Roisin x
