I have been wanting to get on here and share something ALL day....ever since around 6 am in fact.

I woke this morning and did my usual rounds of facebook, entered some stuff into Etsy, checked my email......Checked my EMAIL!!! I WON!!!!! No, it wasn't one of those Nigerian Lottery scams. I actually won something. I never win anything.

Do you remember last year....November to be more precise.....we officially switched over to this 'all shiny and new' blog so that we could take advantage of a 10% discount off our ABR machine hire each year? If you need a refresher, just click HERE:) Well, I have been steadily blogging away and I received my 10% of machine hire at the last workshop. But I had been enjoying the cathartic nature of blogging so much that I had completely forgotten about this little gem:

In this 'blogging campaign' that's being undertaken by the parents there is an opportunity to win our machine hire FREE for 3 months!!! That's the incentive we are all going after I'm sure. It's worth $1086AU, and when you're paying up to $25 000 per year for a therapy (including flights and accommodation), that really is worth blogging about.

WE WON! WE WON! WE WON! I nearly fell off my chair this morning, when I read that message. Do you wanna see it? OK!

Hello Families!

I hope everyone is doing well and practicing your new exercises! Everyone has been working hard on their blogs, and the results are really showing. The time has come to announce the winners of our first bi-annual blogging campaign competition! As everyone knows, the winner of this bi-annual blogging campaign competition will receive 3 months of machine rental for FREE. But we have a surprise for everyone! Everyone worked so hard on their blogs, so we decided to give out ANOTHER award! This award goes out to the most progressive blog-- the blog that has gone above and beyond to try and make their blog successful. The winner of the most progressive award will receive ONE month of machine rental for FREE!

The winner of the BEST blog is Melissa and Ayla Luxmoore!

And the winner of the most PROGRESSIVE blog goes to Jenny and Kirrily MacMohan!

Congratulations to the both of you!

As for the rest of you, don't be discouraged! As long as you kept up with the blogging guidelines, you will receive the 10% discount off for machine rental for each month that you participate in the blogging campaign! Great job families and keep working hard on the blogging campaign! The next winner will be announced in October! I look forward to reading more of your blog posts. :)


YeeHa! I can't believe that all of my public whinging and whining (ahem....sharing) has saved us $1086! As our Kiwi cousins across the ditch would say....Choice!

Lis How absolutely fabulous for you and your family. I came out in goose bumps and nearly cried because I was so happy and excited for you.

I wish you all the best with your wonderful prize and I will continue creating the funky everything that we do. Have a super market on Sunday.

With much love and light

Congratulations on your wonderful blog, always enjoy reading it. I was also very excited.

Melissa Luxmoore said...

Congratulations to you too Jenny! It's so nice to finally save some money on ABR! I hope to finally meet you guys at a workshop one day :)

Melissa Luxmoore said...

Thanks everyone for your congratulations! And thanks for reading our blog and supporting us both emotionally and with our crafting!

Nikki, I'm so excited that you and the girls are so excited about the crafting too. Will let you all know how we go on Sunday.

Well, Ayla, Your Mummy has a lovely Mothers Day gift. Not only you, but 3 months free for your machine. Great to read of your success Lis and Steven. The Creator of the Universe has a Hand in it too. There's a bunch of people here down below the mountain who care. Love Auntie Rob.

yay! I'm so glad for you. You know, I've been so busy lately that I haven't e-mailed but want you to know that I think about you all so often. really, like several times a day. I'm amazed at your strength, even with the whining (lol). I can't wait to meet up again!

Melissa Luxmoore said...

Thank you know what I'm really glad for you glad you have finally finished tripping around and can have a few months break. We think about you guys too. Steven thinks you were 'way cool!' :). If I don't speak to you before....have a beautiful birth. Big love.

Melissa Luxmoore said...

Thanks Rob....yes, the creator of the universe probably did have a hand in 'creating the universe', that creator being the ever powerful Mother Nature. But it's Steven and I that deserve full credit for this one. We work bloody hard with Ayla.
