Had the urge to enter a couple of competitions lately. One was to do a video featuring a cooking dish involving the use of some sherry for a Leeds Tapas bar running it in conjunction with Gonzales Byas sherry producers. Don`t usually do videos but thought why not as I didn`t anticipate a huge number of entries and might have a chance. Only went and won!

Won a lovely hamper of meats, tapas dishes and sherry so well worth the hour I spend doing it. Not Nigella but close
Then I entered a Yorkshire Evening Post competition on the theme of " Home is Where the Heart Is" showing a favourite family shot. Entered one of us messing around last new years day and , without asking family members permission, submitted it. Just got the call this morning to say I won that too
. The prize - a cartoon version of your picture by usually political cartoonist Graeme Bandeira. Just seen the artwork copy and it made me laugh. Everyone else pretty much hates it but it`s typical cartoonist style and I think i come off worst in effect! i`ll share that when I can for a laugh but can only do so once it is published in the newspaper on Monday. The guy asked if i`d be using versions of it for next year`s Christmas card. I said only if I wanted to end up living alone!
