Just in case you missed the Wikio excitement, I'm flagging this link up for you to see too and appreciate now while it's there. Please don't ask me to explain how these things happen but I'm naturally very excited and honoured that we are there for this month at least, and in amongst such esteemed company.
Except, to be very honest that sort of thing terrifies me slightly too. In fact I think it might be best to forget all about it after today and carry on as usual, but my sincere and grateful thanks to all of you for getting us there. Please share the moment and have a little jump up and down where ever you are and
help yourself to some celebratory Tinker birthday profiteroles (go on, a bit more chocolate won't hurt) and there might be a drizzle of champers left....or I'll put the kettle on and we'll have a nice pot of tea instead.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter and feel rested and refreshed . We had a fine day with the Tinker celebrating his 85th birthday and thank you for all your kind comments and good wishes, he was very touched and is now packed and raring to set sail on his adventure.
We have a bit more housekeeping to do because the gold envelope has arrived and there are two more first places to report for one of you. We have a double quiz winner... Mary Greene was the name in the gold envelope as the winner of Rhys's last quiz and here are the answers
and Mary also the only person to score 9/10 in Erika's quiz and get two of those three last few very tricky questions right....here are the answers for anyone still tearing their hair out over those.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
The Little White Horse, Elizabeth Goudge
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin, Beatrix Potter
The Wind in The Willows, Kenneth Grahame
Swallows and Amazons,, Arthur Ransome
Little Women, Louisa M. Alcott
Gub Gub's Book, Hugh Lofting
The Little Duke, Charlotte M. Yonge
The Black Riders, Violet Needham
So congratulations to Mary, a little prize package on its way to you very soon.
