    Is Debi reading these comments? Can I ask the size of the painting, please?

  6. Jill Mansell

    Whoops, forgot to bid! £110.

  7. I’ve just asked Debi to confirm the size and will update as soon as I know.

  8. Debi has confirmed it will be 300mm wide x 420mm tall.

  9. Oooh, bidding against yourself, Candy. I like it… (except that I’ve been outbid). This is the thing i most wanted on the whole site… but I’m glad it’s raising lots of money.

  10. Hello! I think Candy wins the Internet. And the bunny too…. This is SUCH a brilliant communal effort, it’s completely restored my faith in the industry. Love to you all xxxx

  11. Debbie, I don’t think it’s over yet! x

  12. But Debbie SAID I won so it must be TRUE!

  13. Okay, I raise myself £170.

  14. Clare Bell, what are you DOING?

  15. Please stop trying to win it! £176

  16. Candy! Please YOU stop trying to win it!

  17. £180. But I won’t be able to eat. Though that’ll be good for the diet, right?

  18. what can I say? I love bunnies

  19. I love bunnies too- heck, I’d’ve thought that was pretty obvious but….
    I LOVE you all much more. People- you’re utterly brilliant. Thanks so much.
    I’ve got to go off on a variety of trains across the UK now to promote a non-bunny book, but I’ll try and check in as often as possible till the bidding is over. Good luck! Xxxxxxx

  20. Oh man. I think I’ve been outbid. But if it goes to either of you too, perhaps I might get to look at it one day!

  21. Debi, I’m on trains all this week, too (in fact, I made that bid from one) – maybe we will bump into each other 😉

  22. £210. Now I’ll have to give up wine as well as food

  23. Banrock (the bunny) made me do it!

  24. Jane Churchill

    £235 Love the bunny too!
