A very exciting development in my life

After years and years of blogging (well if you count the Diaryland account I had way back when) i've finally been sent something free to try out and review! It's not the reason I blog (if it was the reason i'd have given up by now) but I have always wondered how other people seem to end up getting so much free stuff sent to them. Perhaps it's because other people post more than once a month and have thousands of followers. This does not seem to have bothered the people who sent me a freebie, and the fact that I already love the product I got sent will in NO WAY influence the totally un-biased review I will give of it. I bet you're wondering just what it could possibly be that has made me so excited?

A giant cardboard box arrived on the doorstep

Inside the box was a basket full of treats

A whole family of Vimto products for my delectation!

My standby pop of choice ever since I moved to Cornwall

Look at the riches that have befallen me!

All tucked up again in their lovely basket.

Now so far out of this bounty I have drunk one of the cartons of still Vimto- which was yummy, even if the straw had got smashed up in transit, and i'm half way through a bottle of fizzy Vimto. I normally drink fizzy Vimto out a can so this actually has been a new and exciting experience for me...Sadly there is some Cherry Vimto included in the package and as the world knows I am fussy and do not like Cherry flavoured things, I like cherries, just not the flavouring, so i'm going to donate those two bottles to our grand fundraising tombola at the WI hall soon...

I shall continue to document my love affair with Vimto over on twitter where you are free to join me.

Wish we leved near each other, I love fake Cherry flavour.

Hope Spring is treating well my dear. I'm being jollied by the opening of my Cherry Blossom, hey, more Cherryness.
