Winnie the Pooh giveaway!


Winnie the Pooh was a favourite of mine as a child, and my own children were brought up with the "real" Winnie the Pooh, not the Disney version. We went to play Poohsticks in the Ashdown Forest at the original location. Even Disney has its good points though - like this personality test!

Leave a comment telling me which character you are most like (you don't need to use the Disney test if you already know) and you will be entered into a draw to win a brand-new CD of Winnie-the-pooh read by Alan Bennett (it was a freebie with the Guardian recently).

Have a second go by following me on twitter and leaving a separate comment (yes, it's ok if you are already a follower)

I will use random.org to find the winner on Friday - and to start you off, I think I'm a mix of Pooh and Eeyore, I bounce between being happy and enthusiastic to occasional bouts of feeling everything I do is bound to fail...oops, I used the word bounce, didn't I? There must be some Tigger in there too!

I thought I would post here today as everyone beat me to commenting on your last post after your twitter appeal.

Your blog is great. Almost no one comments on mine ever except for the giveaway I had.

Don't enter me because I already have it - I can recommmend it though! I gave it to my youngest (aged 11) - he sniffed and said he was too old. Then last weekend he wasn't well and I found him tucked up in his spare bed (having been sick all over his own..) happily listening away. A miracle cure!

Well according to the test I'm like Rabbit - pernickity and precise! It's probably fairly true. I do like things to be organised and neat and tidy.

Before the test I would have said I was definitely an Eeeyore, but apparently I'm a Piglet! (oink)

Conni said...

Lyn said...

I just did the test and I am a Tigger-I don't think I have quite as much energy as him though!

I'm Rabbit... my mom always said I was and when I took the test it proved she was right. :)

According to the personality test I am like Rabbit! I suppose I do like to plan things before I do them - although I rarely stick to the plan!! :-)

amylane said...

Oh, and I already follow you on twitter and shall RT your tweet about this blog post :-)

Pips said...

That was fun - so much fun that my 13 year old had to do it (pooh)
My husband just walked in from work and had to do it (tigger)
My six year old son (owl - very disappointed because he wanted to be tigger!)
And I was pooh! 6 year old then said "is that because you are fat like pooh?" *sigh* time to get the Wii Fit out I think!
