Recently Lady Pondside of the blog Pondside held a contest in which she offered to give away a book called Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle. All you had to do was leave a comment. I became a big fan of Downton Abbey this year and tried never to miss an episode so I just had to enter the contest.
I was just thrilled when Lady Pondside emailed to tell me that I won. Last week in the post I received my winnings. A lovely handwritten note, a box of Library blend tea from Murchie”s, a tea importer in Richmond, British Columbia and the book. Such a lovely gift.
I look forward to reading this book in the next few weeks. My husband starts radiation and chemotherapy next week and I will be spending my time sitting in the waiting room for him.
