It's been 3 years

since I started this blog - my actual blogaversary was last month but what with one thing and another I didn't post about it then. So to celebrate (albeit belatedly) I'm having a giveaway.

I'm giving away a set of Onya Weigh eco bags. You can see a photo of them on the website.

These are really neat inventions to replace the plastic produce bags you get in the supermarket. They are see through so the checkout operator can see those pesky stickers on the fruit and what sort of vegetable it is. They weigh next to nothing so won't add anything to your bill. Mine arrived yesterday and I'm delighted to see these ones will fit in your handbag. I'm all for things fitting in my handbag.

You can read more about Onya bags at their website.

So if you'd like to be in the draw to win a set of 5 Onya Weigh bags you know what to do*.

Actually... since I don't think one should get somethin' for nothin' I'm going to make you do something!

*throws head back*

In order to be in to win you need to tell me what is outside your window while you write the comment. In haiku format.

*rubs hands together*

Here's mine:

Upright in stacked rows
Silent until opening
Reference books wait

*NB: I will post overseas. Comments close on Wednesday 13th midnight New Zealand time.


  1. Congrats on the blogaversary! Those bags do look cool.

    Autumn colour sits
    Nestled in evergreen arms.
    Rain is coming soon.

  2. Daybreak.
    Gentle sun shines
    Birds call.

  3. Deserted, dried out pond
    Yellow, claret, orange leaves
    Abandoned chairs

  4. Rain pours
    Children walk
    Wet and smelly to their homes

    Not sure if that is one but congratulations on your blogaversary

  5. The bags are great aren't they?

    Congrats on 3 years of having a blog.

  6. rain streams down window
    blurred lights shining through dark night
    nice and warm inside

  7. 3 years! Congrats to you & Happy blogaversary :-)
    Those bags sound a great idea, but please don't include me in your draw dear, I will TRY and write something anyway ...

    concrete jungle abounds
    standing tall & proud
    in sweltering heat !

    is that one? lol

  8. splatters of rain fall
    the paving stones are mottled grey
    wintery May day

    yay on your blogaversary, from checking out that onya site...those bags are so cool.

  9. Congratulations on 3 years blogging. Must check out how long I have been LOL.
    I'm not good at poems or the like but I'll give it ago :)

    Sleet comes down
    animals sheltering
    Winters coming

  10. Happy blog birthday, Penny!!!!!!!!

    (Got eco bags coming out my ears here so will opt out and give the rest of the girls more chance of a win.)

  11. Hi Penny :) Congrats on your blogaversary!

    Those bags are very cool but the brain just can't think poetry at this time of the morning LOL

  12. Laughing at the haiku (ok not sall of them!)- perhaps you should give refresher course. How many syllables per line was that?

    And congrats on the blogaversary!
