Second week in May and Winners from April

Hi Peeps - hope your week has not been as eventful as mine! We have had some very extreme weather - not that you could tell today as it is cold but sunny and blue skies and calm. So deceitful of nature after what she did to Hobart a few days ago. However, we all survived - in fact, we didn't get much trouble here at Chez Hogan at all except for some water falling straight down the chimney for about 30 minutes - a bucket and towel solved that problem quickly. Thank goodness there was no fire in there at the time! Could have been messy.

Sunday is Mother's Day in Australia (and elsewhere, I know) so 

Happy Mother's Day

 to all the various Mother's and others acting in a motherly role! We hope you had a great day yesterday and were spoiled by your loved ones! 

Now, on to winners from April
