a winner and a star (in my eyes anyway)

I have the winner of the Vignette magazine
but while I have you here (captive) I'd like to tell you
about a winner in my family .

My beautiful daughter was invited
to sing at one of the local vineyards .
The vineyard was once a shearing shed
and still has the old floorboards and rustic charm .
Just another one of the many reasons
I love living in country Australia .


My daughter sang like an angel .
Besides the fact that I cannot hold a tune , really,
cats have run howling from my singing ,
I think it takes great courage to get up in
front of a crowd of people and speak
let alone sing .
Proud mother is a little understated for how I feel .


I think I've probably held you here long enough with
my family tale so here is the winner ......
Monika is from Ireland would
you like to hear about my Irish heritage ?

Thought not !

Thanks to all who entered there will be
another giveaway very soon .

Monika would you please email me
with your details .

A pat on the back for your DD. I used to be in the debating team and I always had butterflies before my turn even though there were 3 of us! I couldn't have done it on my own iykwim. Congratulations Monika on your win :).

Proud mothers are allowed. And daughters who can do that are amazing. Enjoy

I cant sing a note either, but I suspect your daughter gets her brave gene from you Clare.

And congratulations to Monika on winning the giveaway.

I’m taking a punt that you were the mama with the wee lump in the throat and the bright starry eyes? With you all the way, lady.

Sue said...

Yu have every right to be proud of your daughter. That's a wonderful achievement.
Congratz to Monika for winning too.
With a name like Clare we would expect Irish heritage.
