Sono ritornato : Giveaway Winner

I am back in the land of rain, unhelpful taxi drivers and work, forgive me for not leaping for joy. On the positive, I have had the BEST 4 days away with my boy, celebrating a rather spectacular milestone in truly beautiful fashion. During our jaunt to Venice, I ate a pizza a day, travelled on various water-based modes of transport, admired the stunning architecture, marvelled at Renaissance art and modern wonders alike, explored far away side streets and discovered some great local wine hang-outs. In a nutshell, one of the best trips I've had in a long while, so I suppose it's fitting that we had such a good reason to visit.

Thank you for your recommendations and well-wishes, especially to Chuck who recommended views of the city from an alternative tower to the usual touristy one - that was much appreciated and we have some fantastic snaps to show for it!

My photos are being processed as I type, so they'll be appearing over the next couple of days; I was quite trigger happy and managed to shoot off a couple of reels of film on my new Holga. With any luck I'll have at least a couple of snaps to salvage that are worth posting.

Which leads me onto the most important thing to do today..... draw the giveaway winner! Thankyou to everyone who entered, and especially a big thankyou hug to Katie from Kakes Makes who I have teamed up for the giveaway itself. We were inundated with new followers and entries alike, so with the helpful utilising of drumroll please....

The winner is....

Eleanor from Pretty Much Penniless!

Congratulations! I will be passing on your details to Kakes Makes to arrange a delivery of your prizes.

Thankyou to all my followers and readers alike, I shall continue to do giveaways for as long as you keep reading, to give something back if you like. The next will be at 350 followers (300 crept up on me as you might've noticed).

Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for my Venice shots, I am so excited about getting these back later this afternoon! xox
