Phew! What a party! Thank you all so much for coming along and helping me celebrate the launch of Surfing in Stilettos. I could barely keep up with you all and managed to chat to some of you in the chat room. At one point I could follow conversations but couldn’t get into the room because it was full!
Thank you too to everyone who tweeted and shared the party and to all of you who put up posts and linked to it. Just to let you know that the blog got 4,441 hits yesterday. I’m surprised it didn’t crash!
Finally, huge thanks to all of you who entered the competitions and again to those of you who generously gave prizes. It was very tough to decide who to award prizes to and I roped in some judges who don’t know you so I couldn’t be accused of favouritism.
Without further ado here are the winners, with winning photos where appropriate. Please could all winners contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with their postal addresses so I can get prizes out to them in the next day or two?
Congratulations to all the winners.

There wasn’t a prize awarded yesterday but one had been given earlier this month for discovering my Fakebook person. Congratulations again to Dizzy C who took away M&S vouchers and a bouquet of flowers :
