One Word One Heart


this is the first year i have participated in this event, it all stated in 2007 by Lisa over at

"to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way."

i think its all about making new friends, visiting far away places from your own lounge room & having the chance to give away something.

so all you need to do is make a comment on this post by Midnight EST 15th Feb 2010
i have 3 prizes to give away to 3 random people.

Small Christmas Journal/Scrapbook. it has lined pages & 3 dividers, covered in plastic.

New Music
i first heard this song played by a group of year 10 kids [ they were very good] at S's year 10 graduation last year.
then again yesterday on the radio, censored of course
the group is called Mumford & Sons & the song is 'Little Lion Man'
i would describe it as Country/Folk
something a bit different & i like it
the album is called 'Sigh No More' & it is on my shopping list for this week
