Guess what Mum, we had 27 entries for our Giveaway, isn't that amazing?!
It sure is Henry. Come on help me write out all the names on a slip of paper and then fold them ready to draw out of a hat.
That's it, all the entries, now we have to fold them.
Oh we are going to use your travel case are we? Okay, that sounds like a good idea.
That's it, put all the folded up names in the case.
Count them all in Henry
Are they all there? Right, lets close the case and give it a shake.
Henry! What are you doing?
I'm giving the suitcase a shake Mum, like you asked.
I didn't mean over the top of your head Henry, you must be careful.
But I am really strong...look...
Yes Henry, you are a big strong lad, now put it down so we can get Mr Nearly 21 to pull a name out of the case with you.
Ooh, do you think he will? He doesn't usually want to have anything to do with us.
Well if I promise only to photograph his hand he will.
In the hand goes...
Out a name comes...
Give it to Henry
Thank you, can I read the name out please?
Of course you can Henry.
It says Sheila!
Does that mean Sheila has won the prize Mum?
Yes it does Henry.
Can we draw another name out Mum?
Why's that Henry?
Well it doesn't seem fair that only one person has won something.
Well that's the way things are Henry.
Oh please, Mum, just one more as a kind of consolation prize? Pllleeeeze
Okay Henry, that does sound like a lovely idea, let's draw another name out.
Who has won the consolation prize Henry?
Henry looks at the name puzzled.
It says Dormouse. Why would a dormouse enter our giveaway Mum?
A dormouse hasn't entered our giveaway Henry, that is the name the person is using. It is a pseudonym.
What is a sue doe nim Mum?
Well Henry, it is a name someone uses when they don't want their real name to be used. But it is okay I know who it is, it is one of our Sasha friends.
Oh that is all right then.
Congratulations to Sheila our first prize winner and Dormouse our consolation prize winner. Sorry there couldn't be something for everyone, but thank you all for entering our Giveaway...although laughingly I was actually one month early! It should have been May...buy we DID reach 200 posts. Please keep reading, who knows when we might do another one! We love to read your comments and hope you continue to enjoy hearing about Henry and his friends exploits.
If you could both contact me by email with your name and postal address please and whether you are wanting something for a boy or a girl and their name if they have one, that would be great.
I hope to get your gifts finished and posted by the end of the week.
