Blogiversary: where the presents go to you...

Happy six month blogiversary to me!

Happy six month blogiversary to meeeeee!!!!!!

Yep, that's right, Delightfully Ludicrous is now six months old!  

*pops party streamers*

And in celebration of this very important event, I've decided to have another giveaway!  Those of you who've been visiting me for a while will remember a couple of reviews I did a few months back on two vintage books very descriptively entitled "Don'ts for Wives" and "Don'ts for Husbands".  They gave some ... shall we say interesting ... advice to the matrimonially blessed, such as making sure not to hire good looking servants in case your husband decides to get a little handsy, and to not let the little lady spend too much on her own lest she waste a month's housekeeping on some silly frippery.

Well if you ever wondered what other absolute gems of advice were contained therein, today's your lucky day!

One lucky reader is going to get a copy of each of "Don'ts for Wives" and "Don'ts for Husbands", as well as "Don'ts for Mothers" and "Don'ts for Weddings"!  That's right, four whole books of outdated, misogynistic advice.

How could you resist!  

So if you'd like to be the lucky winner, just leave a note below and I'll randomly draw a winner from the hat of fate!  You have until 10am AEST on Thursday 8th November to enter, which I believe is 8pm Wednesday 7th November New York time.  

Thanks again for all your support over the past six months, guys.  It's made writing here a joy and a delight.  Here's to the next six months!

  11. Happy 6 months!! I love advice from long ago, such a fun read! I remember seeing an ad in an old magazine where they advertised Lysol as a feminine hygine product. Yikes, makes me cross my legs just thinking about it!!

  17. Congratulations! I wonder what the percentage is of people who start blogs and never make it to 6 months. Pretty high, I'm guessing. So good job on sticking with it, and all with great content!

  22. Wow... amazing. You and I started our blogs within a couple of weeks of one another (my 6 month anniversary is on Nov 16th), and yet I'll bet you've posted double if not triple the number of posts as I have. You, my dear, are a writing machine!

    As for outdated misogynistic advice... yes please!
