Unpredictable Winner!


With the names of the six competition entrants spread out on the floor, I attached to each name a small but highly valued kitty treat.

When I let Lily back into the room, she went straight to the one that looked best to her.  (She's always extremely particular about which of the identical biscuits she'll go for.)

With little fuss, Lily selected a clear winner.  Congratulations Mags!  You'll receive a signed copy of Eileen Cook's debut novel Unpredictable.

Well played everyone else.  

And a special thank you to you Eileen - this was really fun!

What a great way to choose a winner. Wonder if I do this with cheese and my man it will work? (I don't have a pet).

I agree with .girl ferment. - original and hilarious. And makes the sadness of not being the winner much easier to bear. Cool comp!!

Hi Naomi,
How are you?
Sorry I just haven't had a chance to do much these days: between being pregnant and being made redundant it has been a bit of a whirl-wind. I finish work in one and a half weeks so I'll be emailing all the time and reading your always-entertaining blog. Speak to you soon and hope you are both well.
