Day 1095 - Give-away time!

Today is the third anniversary of Deep Fried Fruit.  

I have been writing every single day for 1095 days straight.  3 years x 365 days = 1095 .... it actually adds up! Let's just forget there was a leap year in there.

43 = 40 + Mickey Mouse ears

Given I started writing on my 40th birthday, it also means today I turn 43. I'd prefer not to be 43 though. I have vowed to stay 40 forever so let's just turn that three onto its side and I'll now be 40 with Mickey Mouse ears instead.   Happy birthday to me ... woot woot! (And a great big shout-out to Disney in the process.)

It's been a HUGE year.  A year I am extremely grateful for. A year I am very proud of. A year that has turned me grey and in turn made me very happy for my Nice n Easy sponsors.  But rather that list all the ticks on my "ta dah" list (because it will start to sound like I'm carrying a rather large brag bag) let's just celebrate my birthday and the third anniversary of DFF  with a give-away.  Yep, a Deep Fried Give-away is definitely in order ...

The wonderful peeps at Nice n Easy and Wella are giving away summer hair care packs to three lucky DFF readers. To get your name in the draw, all you've got to do is help me celebrate!

You could win this Wella and Nice'n Easy Summer Pack

Nice n Easy want you have summer hair that sparkles in the sun and looks alive with energy and personality.  Each of their shades has 100% grey coverage (sooooooo important for the deep fried peeps) without making the colour look flat. If you win, you get to choose what colour you want!

Wella recognise that around 71% of all women colour their hair, which means 71% of women need to treat their hair with extra special care.  Wella helps preserve the vibrant healthy look of hair colours with Wella Pro Series Colour which not only nourishes and protects, but gets hair all soft and shiny. Yep, I need me some of that.

We all know my party "cry" is WOOT WOOT!  So all I need from you is to hear your party catch-cry or celebratory phrase.  And if you don't have your own in-built party whistle, then feel free to use mine.  Can I hear you say WOOT WOOT?

Thought for the day: 
Age really is a mindset.  
You can be as old or as young as you like.  
It's really up to you.  
Mickey Mouse ears will definitely keep you young. 

Counter thought for the day:  Except for when you try to do cartwheels and round-offs at the age of 43 and your body screams "Oh no you d'n't!!!" After a half hour tumbling session with some wonderful cheerleading coaches on Sunday my body still feels like it's been hit by a truck.  But I did achieve my 43 year goal!!! I can now do round-offs ... and will never feel the need to do them again.

Come on ... Let's celebrate!!! Start blowing those whistles ...

Competition Notes: You can give me your celebratory catch-cries on the blog, my Facebook page, Twitter #DFFBirthday, text or email. Competition open to Australian residents only.  Competition closes midnight next Thursday 11 October.  Once winners are drawn I will contact you for your address and hair colour preference.  Winners who don't respond within 48 hours will be redrawn.

  12. You are an inspiration! Round-offs are totally out of my league, but maybe I could aim for a decent cartwheel by the time I'm 43? (Not very far away.)
