Our Very Good Life Prize Giveaway

Hello everybody.

It gives us great pleasure, to announce to you the start of our first ever prize giveaway.


The first prize will be an 'Our Good Life' vegetable growing hamper worth well over £20. It will include useful tools, seeds and invaluable equipment. It will be sent by first class recorded delivery.

Second prize will be thee packets of seeds.

How to enter
It is so simple to enter. All you have to do is solve the simple puzzle which we unravel over the next week or so, the puzzle is based on the story of the Dragonfly Maze at Bourton on the Water. It took us about half an hour to get out of the maze, but you won't have to naviagate around a maze in our contest. At regular intervals we will release a clue to help you solve the puzzle. Each post will only have 1 picture in it, and if you think logically about what the picture shows then you will be able to determine a word that will fit in to the sentence. There are 14 clues. Obviously, you don't have to log on every day, each post will be tagged with contest, and if you click the tag on the right hand side of the blog then all the relevant posts will appear.

The contest is about to begin...

A long, long time a go an old weaver lived in the mill at Bourton on the Water. You could say she was a peasant, but she had something that was the envy of the rich. The golden dragonfly which she wore around her neck. The golden dragonfly was stolen one day when the weaver had left home to collect a loaf of bread and it has been kept in the round house by the evil goblin ever since. There is high security in the round house, so you will need to crack the code to locate the golden dragonfly. It won't be easy!

The first clue is on the stone just ahead...

You will need to write down the word because it is the first word in the code.
When you have all 14 words you will need to EMAIL me with the correct code. My email address is  . If you have revealed the code correctly your name will be put in to the hat for a chance to win the first prize. The second name out will win the runners up prize.

It may take a while to get your head around the idea, so if you have any questions then please do not hesistate to ask by leaving a comment.

I wish you the best of luck. There are no stingy conditions, you don't even need to be a public follower of the blog. Just make sure your answers are in by 11:59pm on 30th July.

I will post a clue tracker for you tomorrow. I will also reveal the solution to the first clue so that you can make sure you are on the right lines.

Thanks for your continued support. This is just a small way of saying thankyou to our loyal, followers, friends and family.

Have a great week!
