I can't believe I 've done 100 posts already!!

Doing my blog has given me so much pleasure. I am fascinated that anybody even wants to read about me, my life & I. When I first started my blog it was really only just for me a record of happenings a view of where I was at that time in my days & something for my family & I to reflect on.
Fortunately though it has become much more than that. I have "met" some wonderful wonderful people, one I have had the pleasure to met in "real life" and hope to meet up with again soon. Despite being warned by DD15 that it could be a dangerous axe murderer. (you know who you are & I'm sure we will laugh about that for many years to come)

To my wonderful 29 followers I cherish each & everyone of you. Thank you for showing such interest.

So to help me celebrate doing my 100th post I am having a mystery giveaway.

Well mystery to you that is.

One lucky reader will be the winner of my mystery parcel, regardless of where you are in the world I will send it. So international bloggers please comment too.

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me which out of my 100 posts has been your favourite.

Hi Caroline. This is my first visit to your blog so to be honest I haven't read all 100 posts, yet.
But the one I found very interesting, AND devastating too, was the one about the bush fires in Victoria! I am particularly interested in them because I have lived in the Melbourne region (Balarat) for some 2 years.

Would love to enter your fun mystery give away.

Hugs and g'day from a "fellow" Aussie, lol.
No I am Dutch but Australia is still in my heart.

Hi Caroline, first of all, congratulations on your 100th post. I have only started to follow you in recent times therefor I cannot comment on my favourite post as I have not read them all. Hope to do so in the near future. Like you I started my blog as a personal diary and for my family to read and recall things in the future. My daughter introduced me to the land of Blog after she came across Shey's Blog and saw how it bought so many people together from all over the world and yes we have also met so many wonderful and thoughtful people from all over the world. Looking forward to all your future posts.
Love and hugs XXXXOOOO

Hi Caroline-my favourite post is The One Where Chloe Falls In Love With The Knitted Santa. That second picture of her on top of Santa(ahem) is adorable.We used to have a dog who was a bit like that with dirty washing.Enough said, really.

Hi Caroline,
How exciting about the giveaway. Well... I always like your posts about your family, and one that really brought a tear to my eye was the post about Lane's birthday. It was the gentle way you described him and told us all how proud you are of him and how you accept him and his ways. It opened my eyes, and I thought it was just lovely, so that is my favourite post by you!

I like your post "My Crazy Days" from oct. 24. I love horses, too, so I enjoy reading a barn manager's perspective on things!

Caroline,Congrats on your 100th post!! What a good idea for a give away. (I'll have to wait for another significant # myself,maybe 150??) Anyway, though I loved the fabulous egg pie post, I had to choose between Jan.12th,"Visiting Gran" and Oct30th,"Happy Birthday Gran". She seems so sweet and you can see your love there. I choose "Happy Birthday Gran", final answer!! Blessings to you!

Congratulations on your 100th post. Like you, I started blogging to put down my memories for my family - but it turned out to be so much more. Such incredible women I have met through blogland! I just found you a few posts ago - and read about the Australian fires. I guess that was my favorite post, because I was concerned about the fires - and because that was how I found you. :)
Smiles to you!
Just Ruthie

Congratulations on 100 posts and on having so many followers!

I am pressed for time so I don't know the exact title of the post that is one of my favorites, but it's from early on when you shared with us your occupation. I still mention to my hubby now and then how cool I think it is... and I always love seeing the horse pics!

Hi Caroline.... My Fav-O-rite is absolutely Wednesday Word. I just get so darn excited on Tuesdays and miss Wednesdays so much. I'm sorry to hear your bad news. I watched it on the news, terrible stretch of road there near Gympie, I use to travel that road alot to get my kids living up there, seen and been involved in many a near miss. Thinking of you.

What IS that gorgeous red flower? I'm and avid gardener but I'm sure it will probably not grow in my Washington State garden!

Will surely visit your site again.
