Day 507

And the winner is:

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..." 

Yep, I'll let you ponder that little Dr Seussism while I go off and draw the winner of the "home office starter kit".  Thanks to everyone who entered my Day 500 celebration ... and helped me party like it was post 1999.

So I haven't put any effort into working out how to use a computerised random chooser thingimo so I've just gone through my comments and emails and grabbed all those who entered the comp, wrote their names on bits of paper and put them in my fake FBI cap.  Now I'm just waiting for one of my kids to wake up so they can do the draw.

Ho hum. Dum de dum.

So, what you wanna talk about while we wait?

How about we have a little chat about that whole Dr Seuss quote up there. I personally love it. I'm one of these people that reckon you create your own life ... that we all have the personal power to sow the seeds and reap the rewards.  Yeah I don't think our lives are an accident but that the meaning of life, or experiences, is defined by us.  Success is a choice and all that. Annoying little beast, aren't I?  I can be. But seriously, what's the alternative? Waiting around for stuff to happen to us?  Waiting for "luck"? Luck is not luck at all, it's merely probabilities which are within our control. People confuse luck and chance.  Winning this little 500 competition is chance.  I'm not much into waiting. I'd prefer to bloody well just go out there and get it done.  Just make it happen.  Create it myself if I have to.  No waiting for me ....

She says as she sits here twiddling her thumbs waiting for the kids to wake up.

Tahlia has her swimming carnival today.  She needs her sleep. Having said that she also needs a nice healthy and powerful breakfast to kick start her day!

So Dr Seuss, I'm with you. I'm gonna use my brain and my feet and steer this ship in the direction I choose. I'm off to wake up Sleeping Beauty so that (a) she can get ready for her big day in the pool and (b) so that she can draw the winner of the big 500!!

Let's get this show on the road.

Woot Woot ....

And the winner is .....

Drum roll please .....

Glowless @ Where's My Glow!!! 

Her woot woot entry was: "My Woot Woot moment today is definitely hosting FlogYoBlog Friday at Where's My Glow? and having so many awesome bloggers link up."

How appropriate is that given today is another Flog Yo Blog Friday! Luck, chance, or self creation? Hmmm.  Or maybe the power of synchronicity!! Now there's a topic for another day .....

Congratulations Glowless! You'd better email me your address so I can get this little package off to you.

Happy Friday everyone! I hope it's a lucky one ....

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." 

— Dr. Seuss (Happy Birthday to You!)

Check out some other fabulous bloggers as they flog what their Mumma gave them ... or something like that. It's over at the Glowy one ... who is currently celebrating her win ...
