400+ posts and a Giveaway

I just looked up and realised that this is my 401st post.

What started as a whim and an experiment is now developing into something slightly more serious with people telling me I should do more.  My stats (a whole new world for me and I for one have never really looked that closely) tell me that I get hit on alot!!  A huge compliment when I think about it.

 Forever a work in progress, its been fun and exciting.  I love knowing what is happening around the rural traps and have been able to meet (if only through cyberspace) some fabulous rural women.

So to say thank you to my loyal followers who probably wonder about some of the things I blog about, I am having a small but stylish giveaway.

To enter make sure you follow me here, on facebook or subscribe to emails above , recommend me to your rural friends and leave a fabulous comment.

I will randomly select one of you in a week.

Also don't forget to let me know what is happening around your area.

Thank you rural girls, I think you are all grand.

I leave you with words from Janet Holmes a Court

I do believe that it is extremely important that each one of us is a participant in life and what's going on around us rather than being a spectator to it and if you do that, if you participate in the world, in your community, your school, your company, or your country, whatever.. they you will be useful and hopefully leave the planet a little better.
