Why do things go wrong when you are in a hurry?

You wait until the last minute to do some photocopying and the photocopier breaks down. Or you try and print something and you’ve run out of paper!

Since I closed my first ever contest yesterday things have not gone right.

Firstly I started to print off all those who entered the contest and the printer ran out of printer toner. So I had to go out and buy some more.

Then today it’s taken me almost 5 hours to upload this video to YouTube. Why? I just don’t know. It just wouldn’t load.

So I am very sorry to make you wait for the announcements of the winners.

Thanks to all of you who entered and to those who sponsored prizes. I really appreciate it.

The winners names are mentioned in the video and I shall now be writing to the winners. Thanks again and congratulations to the winners!

    That’s it, I’m burning the book! Although that would be kinda silly, as I’d have to blow uop my computer to do it…

    Anyhoo, congrats to the winners!

    Hi Andrew
    Bummer that I didn’t win a prize but it was great to hear your voice and find out more about you. My god, you have a life outside of the internet! Great garden! Mine is suffering at he moment because I spend so much time on the computer. Still I look forward to the day that I have outsourced my business and I can get back outside. It was nice to see the cool weather that you are having. We are suffering the eighth day of temperatures over 35 degrees C. Everything in the garden is wilting and dieing!
    Congrats to the winners, and I look forward to more home movies Andrew!

      Thanks John. I must admit, we have a gardener! He keeps it all tidy! Temps over 35 degrees C would be nice for a few days. We lost 2 fence panels in those winds later in the day. Have to go to the DIY store today and replace.

    I appreciate your effort for holding such a rewarding contest. I wished to be a winner too but the fortune!

    Hope you announce the contest again.

    and the winner is… drums please…

    hello there, at first i did not even want to participate but then i was lucky i did. i had the great fortune to come out of the ‘hat’ first! and chose the hostgator 1 year hosting prize. it came in really handy because my old blog had outgrown its name and i needed to move the content to a new domain name which will hopefully not only inspire myself but many blog visitors to so this was the right prize at the right time!

    thank you, Andrew, for this great gift!
