My 12 loves of Christmas # 11

Surprises!

We are all often surprised with Christmas gifts, acts of kindness, visitors, phone calls, cards and other fun things. It just seems the surprise ratio goes up around this time and they're usually all good.

I had one of my own making today. Our local radio station ran a Christmas CD giveaway, just call in and win, for the first callers. Well I tried during the first round and failed, but the second time around I was the first caller through!!

I was so thrilled and won the new Faith Hill, Joy to the World album. It made my morning totally and was totally surprising, especially as this is only the 3rd thing I've ever won!

Happy Christmas, makes me hungry when I see your favorite foods are nearly the same as mine. I ordered my mince pies from a Brit store in CA. Have eaten one box already!
Would die for a bacon butty, impossible to get here in Upstate NY..Thanks for 'sharing' Your writing makes me smile.

Wow Sarah---that's neat. I just found out today that I won a calendar from Peggy (another blogger who had a giveaway). I was shocked since I never win ANYTHING.

I enjoy Faith Hill---so I'm sure you'll enjoy her Christmas CD. She's got a great voice.

Have a wonderful Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy
