#Listography - Hot Chocolate Award

The biggest frustrastion about being an expat is the competitions, promotions and events that either I'm not eligible for because I don't reside in the UK, or I'm just not there to participate in. When Kate Takes 5 announced that prizes had been offered for the Listography posts about our favourite mugs, I noticed that there was no smallprint. I wrote to Kate and told her that if I were considered for a prize, it would only have to be posted to London (rather than the Middle East) and I would pick it up at my sister's house in April.

Reader, I won one of the prizes! For this post:- Mugs I Have Loved. When we got to London this was waiting for me:




Along with this:


The hot chocolate was indeed frothy top! It was delicious made with water (made slightly stronger) but positively decadent when made with hot milk. So thank you Kate and Galaxy for awarding me the prize and for not being expatphobic.

  1. I know - I'm on a roll! Unfortunately I'm not eligible for the MADS Best New Blogger Award as I've been in the blogosphere for over a year. But I did appreciate your award and the sentiments expressed - thank you :).
