Just two short years ago I sat down to write my first blog post. (I'm going to need you to read that, because we'll be referring back to it another day.)
(I didn't celebrate my one year blogiversary because it would have been a bit of a con. After all, I didn't write anything else for three months.)
To celebrate I promised a giveaway, and a giveaway you shall have. Naturally one of the items in the package will be coffee, from the lovely Atkinsons Coffee Shop (just look at that picture! How can you not love coffee when you get to buy it from there?). Tea, or fruit tea, is available as an alternative to those of you freakish hippies who have a problem with coffee. I won't take it personally. Oh no no.
Also I will send the winner the item of their choice from my Green Metropolis books for sale list, which you can view by clicking on the icon on the right. If you don't like any of those I have loads of stuff I haven't listed yet, from contemporary literary fiction right back to Chaucer. Or tell me what you like and I'll choose something for you and you can hate it and moan about me behind my back.
Come to think of it don't ask for the Chaucer. The Chaucer is a massive book, and it would cost me far too much to post. What, are you trying to bankrupt me?
There. That's enough I think, I don't want you getting all emotional and thinking "It's too much! It's too much! I don't deserve this!" and not bothering to enter.
To enter just stick your name in the comment box.
But everyone wins! Because I can give you all fruit! (Well, all of you in the UK, anyway. I can't send people in other countries fruit. I'm pretty sure of this, because I saw it once in an episode of The Simpsons.)
The other day I ordered a Graze Box to be delivered to me at work - a little letterbox-sized parcel of fruit, nuts and dried goodness. Mine had cherries, dried pineapple, chilli almonds and big fat juicy raisins - very, very yummy indeed and beautifully packaged.
Anyway the company sent me a code to offer friends a free box (usually £2.99). And you are all my friends, right? If you want one let me have your email address and I'll send you the code. (I have to admit to not being entirely altruistic here. They give me some money off if you use the code. But, hell, I'm buying someone coffee.)
Tomorrow, July starts around here for real.
