The winner and runners-up of this contest were announced last night, and you can read the winning entry HERE
It's an excellent piece and full of really good advice to anyone who is thinking of moving to another country.
The contest itself turned out to be not quite what I had expected. but I'm glad I was brave enough to enter. As most of you will know by now I'm not a competitive person, so for me to even think about entering something like this is a bit out of character...done literally on the spur of the moment, almost at the last minute befure I had chance to change my mind!
(And if I'm totally honest, the prize money was an incentive!)
I'd like to take this opportunity to say a massive thankyou to those of you who took the trouble to leave such lovely, encouraging comments on my entry.....words that mean so much more to me than winning.
Congratulations to the winner and runners-up..very well done.
