The days that have passed since Marija's tragic accident have been hard for me and for so many others. I have found it really difficult to blog and feel a little lost for what to post about. I want to continue staying in touch with this wonderful world of blogs and know that eventually the flow and inspiration will come back. I also know I am very late in announcing the winner of the 'High Tea at the Victoria Room' give-away. So sorry for this. I just needed a little break to clear my head. Thanks for waiting. xx

And as much as I'd love to have tea and scones right now. I can't have any... Not for a whole month, because I have just embarked on another round of detoxing. Yep, four whole weeks of restraint and an array of herbal supplements to allow all my internal organs to detox and take a load off. It may sound like I am some sort of junkie here. I am not, don't worry. My husband and I do this detox thing a few times a year in order to give our bodies a good 'rest' before the change of season. An early 'Spring clean' if you want. As promised last time I did this, I will do a separate post about the process soon..
Before I reveal the winner, I'd like to say 'thank you' to all of you who entered and to everyone who has given me such fantastic feedback. As always, it means the world to me when I hear back, and that you take time to read and leave comments on my posts! And now, without further ado, I am very excited to announce that Kimberlee, who blogs over at the wonderful 'Brown Button' has won!

And as you can see, I am not posting pictures of the 'pure' and healthy foods am eating at the moment. Instead I am loading this post with all the nurturing and comforting delights I can possibly find. I am determined to at least let my eyes enjoy what the rest of my body can't! :) In fact, I need a lot of 'happy stuff' right now and as part of that I have booked tickets to Sweden! Yay! Well, I say 'I' have booked, when in actual fact it is my super sweet and supportive husband who has treated me and the kids to a trip home to see my family and friends. Isn't that just the kindest and most generous thing!?! xxx

We'll be there from mid September till mid October and hope that Sweden will serve up some divine Autumn weather for us. It is a bit hit'n'miss at that time of the year and it can just as well be cold, wet and miserable. Not that the weather will stop us from having a great time and I can't wait to see everyone back home!
So that's it for now my friends - my news for this week in a stumbling attempt to get back into the blog groove again. Congratulations once again to Kimberlee. Please email me your address so that I can organise for the book to be sent to you very soon. x
Also thank you all for your wonderful support, emails, comment and general kindness over the past couple of weeks. You are the best!! xx
P.S. More give-aways coming up very soon. The next one is open to all corners of the world. x
