And the DUPLO winner is......


Huge thanks to everyone who entered the LEGO DUPLO competition. I had cajoling and unseemly begging and some people (no names, you know who you are) even threatened to come down and wrestle the DUPLO off me.... Can I just say that this would never be a good idea as tough grown men have been known to weep and run when Asbo gets his teeth into the, er, tender zone.


Anyhow, after a few abortive attempts to get Asbo to pick the winners from a hat, we tried another tack. We coated the names in gravy (outside, I hasten to add) and watched which were eaten first (all names were coated in exactly the same amount of gravy before anyone shouts 'fix').


First into the JRT's gullet was:

Pipany (with unseemly haste)

He then licked a few but in the end went for Amy.

So huge congratulations to you both. I have sent your postal addresses to the nice people at Lego who will be sending out your DUPLO kits as soon as humanly possible. Commiserations to those who were unlucky this time - I am trying very hard to figure out how to track down your various requests for future giveaways - ie vodka, donkeys, spa trips, cars....

Thank you for visiting me via our lovely Rob-Bear. Below is the link, sorry my blogsite is not that organised, I'm quite new to this and still feeling my way around.

I love the look and ideas in your old/new book. Very cheeky of them not to tell you they were publishing it! I hope it sells well, I shall certainly buy it.

Oh wow! Fantastic! Thank you Jane (and Asbo of course). Sorry for the unseemly haste, but you know how it is. Am so thrilled! x

Milla said...

oh well, you can imagine, I'm heart broken. Anyway, good that Pipany won, since she was Queen of the giveAWAY today.

Thank you jane and asbo! so excited to get the Duplo construction time here we come!

Maddie Grigg said...

Ooh, can't wait for the next one. I'm a sucker for Duplo. Never mind the kids, Number One Son is 20 today.

Nicely done, watch those spa trips come rolling in.

Joanne: thanks for dropping by and can quite understand your LEGO feelings!

Pipany: unseemly haste is fine - has never stopped Asbo!

Milla: yup, well you scored on Pip's so not feeling too bad (you didn't really want DUPLO anyhow, did you?)...

Amy: you're very welcome - sounds like it's going to a good home. Hope the girls enjoy it.

Maddie: you are a sad woman! Sure I've got some old Lego floating around somewhere...... :)

Erica: you reckon? Would need to be group expeditions, I think, don't you? I'd need a few different points of view of course....

Erica Douglas said...

We're a package deal nowadays :)

Exmoorjane said...

Erica: remember that when you're being offered that spa trip to the Maldives!

Milla said...

No, I most certainly did not, young miss. You said you'd put me in the hat. Had I won yours and missed out on Pip's as some sort of karma thing, there'd've been tears!
my word verif is subile, which I like sort of super and nubile. Those were the days.

Rob-bear said...

The contest really did "go to the dog." Is that a typical Exmoor kind of thing?

Calico Kate said...

Well done to Pipany and Amy. Hope AsboJ didn't get tummy ache!

Exmoorjane said...

Milla: ah heck.....what can I say? Will make it up to you when you come by next time....Duplo-shaped pudding?

Rob-Bear: Afraid so. Far too many godforsaken dogs round here...

Calico-Kate: you really don't want to know......!!

You should have a contest to see who wins ASBO Jack for a weekend. Who could resist that little dog? He looks like a lot of fun
