Great idea - Blog candy

I can't believe it's 2 years since Sue started her certainly doesn't seem that long :) I can't remember when I started mine, I must go back to the beginning of my blog and have a look. I know I started it then dropped off, then restarted!

Sue says
"Can you believe that I’ll have been blogging for 2 years on the 17th July?

No?....Nor can I but it’s true! Right then, to be in the random draw which will take place on the 17th July you will need to leave me a comment on this post but it’s not quite that straight forward.
