If you've lost your luck fairy I think I may have her!

Either the luck fairy was blown off course and has landed on my shoulder or...well, I don't know really but I'm starting to wonder if I'm due for a massive fall because wonderful things keep happening to me!

First I won Lucy Diamond's limerick competition

Then I found out some secret news (sorry, still can't tell you!)

Then I got myself an agent

And earlier today I found out that Clare Christian chose my photo as the winner in Caroline's Black Boxes photo competition!

My truly wonderful prize is a signed copy of Caroline Smailes's fantastic new book Black Boxes and a book bundle from her publishers! Caroline is a wonderfully talented writer (have you read "In Search of Adam" yet? If not, you should!) and I absolutely can't wait to start reading Black Boxes.

I'm kind of gob-smacked.

A lot gob-smacked actually.

Please don't hate me internet. I'm sure this run of luck won't last!

Hey, make the most of it and enjoy - I'm sure everyone is wishing you onto greater things.

PS - Have you bought a EuroMillions lottery ticket?!?

Calistro said...

Tam - thanks luv! And no, I hadn't bought a EuroMillions ticket but your comment just convinced me I should! ;o)

Kate Lord Brown said...

Ride the wave, Calistro! Enjoy every single moment - you've worked for it, it's yours.

Pat Posner said...

No, Cal, the luck fairy knew what she was doing. You deserved the luck so she rewarded your hard work.
Enjoy....

Leigh said...

Ditto Pat's comment.
You've worked sodding hard for this break, and you deserve it. Long may the Good Luck Fairy, and her friend, the Just Rewards Fairy, continue to do their stuff!

HelenMH said...

You are definitely on a roll. Long may it continue x

Bernadette said...

You know what they say, Cally.
"The harder you work, the luckier you get."

JJ said...

Yes, I'm with the 'you worked for this Cally' crowd. Enjoy it.

Debs said...

I agree, you've worked damn hard for all this luck you're getting. Hard work and talent, you deserve to be doing so well.

KayJay said...

Hurrah hurrah hurrah!

Enjoy it, DRINK IT IN! I'm so pleased for you. (Still can't wait to hear the secret news though...)

If you do have a good luck fairy with you, ask if they have any relatives that fancy a change of scenery... I could do with a visit!

Honestly though I think all the good things that are happening are down to one thing. You have been working bloody hard and have a talent for writing.

Now. About this secret news!

Caroline said...

Please ask your fairy to sprinkle some fairy dust on me.

You're a star x

Calistro said...

Thanks everyone! Am cloning my fairy as we speak and sending her dopplegangers off to different parts of Britain and the world!

Funny thing...

At the top of these comments Tam said that, with my current run of good luck, I should buy a EuroMillions lottery ticket.

I hadn't bought one but thought, "Okay then, why not!"

So I bought a ticket.

And today I get an email from the National Lottery saying there's good news about my ticket.

So I log onto the site and.....

I'VE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

£7.20

*grins* Better luck next time luck fairy ;o)

Tam said...

Every little helps ! That's almost a bottle of Chablis you've got there :-)

KAREN said...

You're just reaping the rewards for all your hard work, I'm sure! Enjoy :o)

Lane said...

I hope it just goes on and on. All very well deserved:-)

B said...

as everyone says - the harder you work, the luckier you get :)

now i should stop faffing and go do some work before bed!

:)

Kate.Kingsley said...

Aw, you totally deserve all of these successes ~ you work so hard.

Still dying to hear about the secret news (and wondering if its the same secret news that I received recently too ;-) )

I've landed here a couple of times now so I figure this black boxes widget wants me to learn something from you.

Just reading the categories for the chic lit competition you are in had given me one or two new ideas.

thank you

LadyinRed: My pleasure :o)
