Come and see the awesomeness that just arrived at my house (there's lots!)

Not too long ago, I entered a competition held by Laura at Stranger Than Writing, to win a writer's survival kit! All we had to do was tell Laura what writerly things we love, and she chose me as the winner! I must say, Laura went above and beyond to get some fantastic things for my survival kit, so let's have a look at what's inside!

                                                                   Pretty notepads!

                                                             Post-its,erasers and pens (oh my!)

                                                                 Coffee and chocolate!

                                                              My whole new set of supplies!


Isn't that the coolest thing ever? But wait, there's more! Not to take away from Laura's amazing gift, but look what else just (literally) arrived in the post ....

Yes, This is a paperback proof of Game On! I cannot believe I am now holding my own book in my hands! It's all shiny and beautiful and has that gorgeous new book smell! I have been doing the happy dance since it arrived and now I am going to curl up with the hot chocolate from Laura and check it over for errors. :D

Best Thursday Ever.
