I won the spa-day at Ragdale Hall which was the prize from a recent draw of members who completed the site use survey recently.

Although I'm probably not the target demographic for a spa-day, it is a day for two and I can tell you that my wife is quite thrilled at the prospect.

I tried to convince her that it was a birthday present from me but she wasn't fooled gringrin

Congrats PD from memory the prize was a signed copy, is it thus? smile

Purpledaffodil Thu 29-Sep-16 18:08:04

You are right Grannyknot. Good memory you have. I tried reading one of the stories to GS yesterday and he went back to the computer after a couple of pages saying "I can multitask Nana". But I shall persevere as it is a very attractive book.
Thanks Sorcha. I think a story with baking would cover GS's favourite occupations. Apart from faffing with the computer of course. grin

There are a lot of great subjects in the 19 books and they are sure to spark his interest and he'll no doubt learn a lot in the process. Thank you very much - it was a great prize to win.

Thank you Gransnet and Rachel.

NfkDumpling Fri 31-Mar-17 09:27:56

THANK YOU! A copy of Recipes from my Mother arrived via a neighbour yesterday! Wonderful! It's a lovely book which I spent a couple of hours drooling over yesterday and have just picked up again. I can't stand long enough to cook at the moment so can only read, but it's a lovely browsing book - and this way is very slimming!

It looks a good workable book with nice ideas and I think there's a good chance I'll buy copies for the offspring. I'm not passing this one on! Thank you!

Purpledaffodil Sat 01-Apr-17 09:23:12

Thank you so much GN and Soreen for wonderful voucher which arrived today. I chose a JL one as DD is getting married in the summer and I hope to choose an extravagant MoB outfit. Really thankful and excited. smile

Worlass Sun 02-Apr-17 14:23:12

Thank you so much for my copy of "Recipes from My Mother". I have not yet had chance to attempt any of the recipes, but have enjoyed looking through the book. My granddaughter has already requested linguine with crab, garlic, chilli and parsley, which is completely different from anything I would usually attempt, but here's my opportunity to expand my repertoire!

Mapleleaf Sun 02-Apr-17 22:26:12

Hello Worlass. I'm pretty sure that your granddaughter will enjoy the linguine with crab, garlic etc. I made it last night, and it was delicious!

Mapleleaf Thu 06-Apr-17 12:55:55

Thank you gransnet team for the giveaway book 21 rituals to change your life. Just arrived today. Will look at it and review later.
