100 Followers On The Farm: Giveaway Time

I promised myself that if ever managed to make it to one hundred followers on this blog I would have a giveaway.  I realise that, in blog terms, a hundred followers is not huge but here on The Farm we are excited!  Yay!  So I have decided to celebrate with a giveaway.  Regular readers would know that I have the utmost respect for the CWA ladies.  So I decided to give away one of their books.

Look - isn't it lovely.

CWA - Cakes

To enter, all you have to do is follow Life In The Country and leave a comment or send me an email.  On 27th April I will randomly select a winner and announce it on the blog.  I am happy to post this book overseas too, so international entries are welcome.

In other baking news, I promised Fiona at Cattle, Kids and Chaos that I would link to the recipe for my almond cake from the last post.  It is a Belinda Jeffery recipe and if you press here it should take you to her website (which is gorgeous by the way....)

Congratulations on reaching over the hundred followers, and thank you so much for the link to the recipe. The cake looks beautiful and I've already printed it out.
Baking is possibly my favourite form of cooking and that looks an amazing book. Would love to add it to my growing collection!

From someone who has 29 followers, 100 sounds like a lot! Congrats! I love baking, the book looks great. :)

Congratulations on 100 readers!

You know, it's not quantity AFW, it's quality (that's what I tell myself as I cry myself to sleep).

You want readers who you can keep a grip on ... I can't imagine having 800 or 900 followers ... who would they all be? They wouldn't all comment, I can tell you that much!

Better to have 800 cows or sheep.

Sarah said...

Just think - you're already halfway to 200! Well done. I haven't seen this book but would love to flip through it's pages for inspriation for the next 'please bring a plate' country gathering. Thanks for the giveaway.
