I'm LATE!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know what to write... for some reason my brain is not forming words, for someone (that is me) who fills every space with inane vacuas chit chat, this is strange... I'm still waiting...
Crapola... nope... nothings coming... so here's what I want to do, I want to share one of the sweetest places on earth with you... it has pretty much nothing, oh I hear you say... what about the pub??? and isn't there a Fishing co-op where you can get freshly shucked (man I love that word... 'shucked'... & it's not even rude) yes... freshly 'shucked' oysters, from the river that runs along one side of the town of Wooli & fresh fish caught from the fishing boat that goes ocean bound each morn (weather permitting) the other side of Wooli... you see the town is on a peninsular about 4 houses deep at it's widest, & it's surrounded by national park... & the area contains some of the most secret fantastic magical deserted locations in Australia that still are within cooee of civilisation, it's a place where you drive your car along the beach or through the red dirt forest roads, it's a place where kangas & birdlife rule, where the Murdochs & Packers of the world will never be seen, McDonald's will never open there, it's where you can take your family, where the locals chat & discuss the weather with the knowledge of national meteorologists where the hardest decision you make is what you want on your burger (cheese with that?) or if you want a beer or wine with dinner... it's Wooli & the surrounding locale, it's sweet, it's got the cleanest water & the most fantastic stretches of beach... it's got nothing, & it's got everything, & as I said... I want to share it with you... this is where we spent our winter holiday, and this is the place that always calls us back...


Now, next item on the agenda... Firstly... I have been inspired by Martha (please visit her wonderful shop) from Ayala Art filming her winners (I was one & I will  post my wonderful aceos win to show you when they arrive) & although not nearly as well done, I found a way to film my "randomiser" winner from my blog giveaway, I didn't really know what I was doing, but I typed out all the names that left a comment on my 'Mad Tea Party' post, and although I'm totally late... just like that little rabbit... I pasted them into the randomiser & let it do the work...

This is pretty anti climatic but I took the easy way out & let the randomiser pick, I'll try & be more creative next giveaway LOL... congrats to Stacy from MagicLoveCrow YEY... YOU HAVE WON A VOUCHER FOR AN ITEM FROM MY ESTY SHOP!!! Sorry that was all in caps but I was excited... Alrighty then, I hope to have more giveaways soon, so thanks to all that entered and please try again next time!!! (Soz, Martha's video was so much better LOL)
OK until next time, thanks for joining me, take care & remember to hug the ones you love ;)

Shelle! What a beautiful place it is and I can feel the magick and the soothing calm that I feel from all of those beautiful photos. Thanks to you, I was able to visit there. You are so right, Shelle...a McDonald's just will not fit into this place!
Lucky, Stacy too! But I have no envy, because I am lucky enough to own one of your beautiful paintings too, which I adore!!!
Hugs,
Jan
