A great week for Woogs

Are you one of life’s losers? I used to be. Until the past week in fact. I was so shirty I did not get tickets to Oprah. You think she would have A-listed me for this one, considering I have written about her here, here, here and here. Am thinking of switching to Ellen. But never The View – Elisabeth Hasslebeck? No.

I am now seriously on fire in the luck game. And they say blogging does not pay! I won a pair of NYDJ jeans over at the Styling You giveaway. I am going to wear the shit out of those babies.

Mr Woog was lucky enough to win Jack’s Ballet School’s raffle prize, which he is totally stoked about.

Yummy. I also won a diamante mouse at the Sydney Blogger Festival last week when they pulled my card out of a box. No, not one of those.…..
But one of these! Am like Paris Hilton, if she knew how to blog.


I also won the fear and awe of my kids when I told them that Santa has a camera installed in every room of our house and will strike their names off the list if they fight again. Result!

But perhaps the best news is that I received this email, totally out of the blue…
