Hello Soupers...my heartfelt thanks go to those who entered my contest, apart from the usual ones that had nothing to do with the theme they were all fabulous. Some just asked questions which was not the theme.

It seems most of us are very alike!

One or two of them could have been written about me ( maybe we share the same genes)... some were funny others were just heartbreaking, but I absolutely loved them.

You were all brave opening your hearts to yourselves and for that bravery I have decided to award all of you 1st place, (you all deserve it) as it is my last contest of the year.

Happy New Year to you all....
