I was feeling very cross and out-of-sorts yesterday morning and nothing was going right. I stomped down to the letterbox expecting a slew of bills – and discovered a nice surprise instead.

One of my daily online must-dos is visiting I’ve Blogged on the UK Food Bloggers Association website. It’s how I’ve discovered lots of great blogs and made some lovely blog friends. It’s also how this crisp new River Cottage Diary 2011 ended up in my letterbox. Janice (aka Farmersgirl), who set up I’ve Blogged, organised a giveaway to celebrate having 100 members – and lucky old me won it.

So thank you Janice, thank you UKFBA and thank you to everyone who posts on I’ve Blogged. You’re an important part of my day (especially when I’ve got the grumps)…
