300,000 hits and a Prize Giveaway



Well who'd have thought it?
My little slice of the Blogesphere has reached the magic
300,00 hits!!!

I also missed "Don't throw a 1's" 2nd Birthday back in August, how could I forget that?

A while ago myself and Fran had the idea of getting some special "Posties Rejects" dice made up.
They were a little more expensive than we thought, so we roped in
 some other Rejects to help pay for them.
Postie the tight git didn't want any, but soon did when they arrived,
so I lost 20 of mine straight away!!!

Anyway me and Fran (Click here for Fran's draw), are both giving some dice away in our posts today.

If you'd like to win some of these unique Posties Rejects dice all you've got to do is comment 
below and say that you'd like to enter the give-away.
I'd prefer if you followed my blog,
but its not compulsory.

There will be 3 winners in the my draw
1st 10 dice
2nd 5 dice
3rd 5 dice

You have until Midday Wednesday 17th, to enter the draw,
so make sure you've entered before then.
The Winners will be announced later that day on the 17th.


So if you fancy some new dice, just comment below!!

    Enter me in the contest please! Here's why I deserve to win (get your violin) - *ahem* I'm just a lonely little housewife, who wants to game with her family on a Saturday night. My children are growing and will soon be out of the house and starting families of their own someday, leaving me with an empty nest (tears are welling up in my eyes, /sniffle, sniffle/) If only I had some really cool dice to play Zombicide with....... <----look, I even put dots in the comment to annoy Anne.

    Congrats on 300,000!!!!

  84. 300,000 hits as they - Im not worthy Im not worthy - however please include me in your drawing and I am a follower of you blog several minths previous to this. However if you get too many entries yah may need to add some more dice to the mix (how much were they a piece) you can never have too many dice. When I was in Scotland it would have been nice to be able to purchase some club dice. I know a convention in Florida that does that.
