I recently posted about winning the first ever reader competition over at the lovely Amy’s lovely blog. I eagerly awaited the arrival my prize, although as a fallible human being, I was less eager to blog about it. That’s not to cast aspersions on the quality of the prize itself, merely to justify the tardiness of this post with excuses about having been busy recently.
