for The Australian (British) Red Cross Bushfire Appeal 2009.
It has taken some time for my poor old elbows to unfreeze after all that virtual folding of virtual tickets and lobbing them into my delightful purple plaid tweed fedora.
Knowing how to really live the wild life CK and I spent Saturday night cross-checking and collating the list of donations with the spreadsheet of ticket numbers and names. And to celebrate our imminent wedding anniversary we 'drew 20 names out of said glorious headwear' which translates as I used the Random Number Generator to get my 20 numbers but Ck was v. excited that it was a proper random 'interger generator' (He is such a science head!) I have emailed all the winners and things are in motion to get prizes out to their new homes.
Annabelle is off to live in Australia at the purplepaisleypatch.
Stine's sweet little monkey is heading to Julie in central England.

I got a reply to the 'you're a winner' email that thanked me very much for the prize but asked if it would be alright to offer it to the Toy Society so that they can find a much needed home for him with a child who needs a new friend. Aren't people nice?
This had such a good response and the need for assistance is going to be ongoing that I thought I might do another raffle later in the year.
Sorry this has taken so long to post but it is tricky typing with just one hand.
