And The Winners Are…..

Winners and runners up named at the bottom of this post!
Scroll to the bottom if you cant contain your excitement!

So, I have never been late delivering a post, but of course on the biggest competition day I have technical difficulties and no internet access ALL day.
BUT I am here eventually and I am very excited to be posting this!

Let me refresh your memories as to what why and when this is all about.
In celebration of my 100th post I got a load of goodies in to give-away to my readers in a fun competition-y thing. I left the post up for 2 whole weeks and here we are.
The announcement we have all been waiting for!!!

I have made a video of the event for everyone to view and have included a little explanation in that too!

So what did I do;
I used a pizza box (frugal thinking) to make a circle enclosure.
I cut 8 holes for the 8 entrants in the sides and labelled each hole with an entrants name.
I then placed a hamster in the centre of the circle and let them explore.
Whichever hole they exited the enclosure via would be the winner!!

Simple and ingenious right?! ;D
Now as you will see from the video, I had a few problems getting Casper a certain white hamster to play fairly. After a dedicated 45 minutes, I disqualified this certain white hamster and used Eve instead. She played fairly.

I feel like I am not making much sense. Just watch the video!!
Please note it is hugely sped up in parts, making it very wobbley. I didnt want to cut any part out πŸ˜›
Scroll to the bottom to see the winners as quick as you can! ;D

Spoilers ahead! If you want to know the winners before watching the video click for more!! If not watch the video, GET THE POPCORN OUT!!

As you saw from the video, or cheekily read before watching, here are the winners.
1st Prize (winner of the prize bundle pictured to the right)

Hutch a Good Life
Congratulations my furry friends! After the sad news I heard only hours ago of the sad passing of Bingo, I really hope this will cheer you up. You were Dexter’s choice of winner and fittingly receive all his goodies :))
If you remember rightly, 1st place gets a choice of the notebooks (out of these two designs which would you prefer) and a choice of the keyrings (out of these two designs which two would you prefer). As for the rest, all of it is yours!!! πŸ˜€
I shall be in contact via email in the next day so all that is left is congratulations once again!!

Runner Up #1Β 

Congratulations my dear reader!! You were Eve’s choice of winner for one of the runners up prizes πŸ˜€ She kept it very tense right up till the last moment! Your prize will be a selection of postcards and a Hamster Diaries keyring. If I remember correctly your comment on the 100th post mentioned about how you wanted the keyring for your Heston, therefore I couldnt think of no better prize than this πŸ™‚ I shall be in contact with yourself via email in the next day and congratulations once again! πŸ˜€

Runner Up #2

Quirky Books
Congratulations my lovely reader!! You weren’t quite Casper’s choice (as you can see from the video) as Casper’s choice was to do things the incredibly hard way πŸ˜› However, Eve jumped into the rescue and she chose you for the 2nd runners up prize woohoo!! Your prize shall be a selection of postcards and a Hamster Diaries notebook. In your entry comment, I recall you saying how you are a writer and would make great use of a notepad and as Eves runner up choice I think it would be a most fitting gift! πŸ˜€ I shall be in contact with you also in the next day and again many congratulations!

Thank you everyone who entered as well as newly follow and read the blog! There may very well be more such give-aways in the future so keep your eyes peeled and keep on reading πŸ˜€ Thank you again!
I kept the draw as fair as possible and the video serves as my evidence πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoyed it and I hope the winners will enjoy their gifts πŸ˜€

  1. Congratulations to the winner and runners up!!!
    If we were given that pizza box circle thingeh to escape from, we would definatleh have done it Casper’s way xD We like to be awkward! *Air high-fives Casper*
    Piggeh kisses,
    Poppy and Clover

    • Hahahah he saw the holes, he sniffed them and put a paw through but OHHH NOOO, he was going to go underneath haha πŸ˜› Such a cheeky one πŸ˜› xxxx

  2. Whee won! And Casper made us giggle! Thank you Dexter for choosing us (that bribe promise of fruit and veg will be on its way to you! Lol)

    Whee feel whee should make a speech. Erm . . . Whee would like to thank Mummy for working the computermabob. Dexter for climbing through the best pizza box hole ever. Eve for looking pretty. Casper for being funny. The hamsters hooman for having such a cool giveaway. And finally Bingo, the bootiful piggy who this prize will be in memory of.

  3. Chani @ pearls,lace and pancakes

    Yippee! Thankyou!

    Heston says thankyou very much to Eve for his keyring.

    Also, I will be emailing a shaming photo of Heston soon, as he did something very naughty last night!


    • I have sent you an email so you dont have to post any address details on here. I hope I sent it to the right email though hhaha ‘’ ?? I hope Heston enjoys his prize gift very much! Ohh goody I look forward to seeing it, naughty Heston ! πŸ˜€ xxx

  4. Hello. Thank you so much. I really wanted the notepad for my writing so that is just awesome. I have sent a reply to your request for my email but I will give it to you again. I am absolutely thrilled to be runner up number two. I watched the video and thought Casper was hilarious, I just couldn’t stop laughing. I hope I haven’t woken my housemates up with my laughter. Casper reminds me of my Guineapig Cinnamon who has a habit of climbing underneath his plastic housing and tipping his food all over in the process, rather than going through the exit hole and Daisy has been taking lessons from him, so between them the house usually ends up towards the centre of their cage rather than against the wall and I have to keep moving it back.

    • Hahaha, Casper just didnt seem to understand the idea of the holes. I didnt want to fustrate him so red carded him πŸ˜› hahaha Cinnamon and Daisy sound like a mischievous pair! Naughty naughty!! πŸ˜€ You are very welcome, thank you for reading and entering and for all your support toward the blog πŸ˜€ xxx

      • They are. I am trying to get all four of my guineapigs to have more exercise but it’s not working. I had them out in the hallway again yesterday and they all sit in the same place waiting to go back into their cages. What are they like!

        • HAHAHA such lazy so and so’s, thats ingenious though, they know they can just sit πŸ˜› I dont know what to suggest to get them running about… an assault course maybe, made out of books or seomthing, blocking the way to their fav corner. They must go through the assault course to get to their patch πŸ˜€ would be epic! πŸ˜€ xx

          • I bought them all food treats the other day and they pushed them out the way and wouldn’t eat them – All four of them and they are in two separate cages! I don’t think they like change, or exercise for that matter.

Squeak up folks! What do you think??
