I know that everyone is desperate to know who won ‘The Did I Win Yet?’ competition. It has been tricky picking a winner. I was swamped with entries, plus chairs arrived at my backdoor with quotes written all over them – sadly these had to be disqualified as this is a virtual competition – I now have a three piece suite, a kitchen stool, and some sort of rickety Ikea affair to dispose of. Thank you!
Before I disclose the finalists let me first deal with section 1 of the competition – the quiz.
Q1. Many years ago Ms Scarlet had a dream about Mr Lax. In this dream Mr Lax instructed Ms Scarlet to do what?
The answer is: b) Mind the gap. [Well done Rimpy!]
Q2. What does LX mean?
To be fair I have no idea. So any answer is a winner! Yes, trick question, cunning, eh???
And now, [DRUMROLL] the finalists:-
Starting with Melanie, with pertinent quote from George Eliot.
Very neat, Melanie. A gold star for you for composition, cursive, and a festive spirit.
Next up – Mr Devine with an even more pertinent quote…
With this entry you are spoiling me, Mr Devine! I like your style! Very individual.
Next is Rimpy, who actually remembered my dream about Mr Lax! Were you in it too, Rimpy? Were you on the London Underground that evening? Anyhow, this is Rimpy’s creative entry….
Shakespeare! And there’s a nice cursive beneath that rush job – take your time Rimps!
Finally, and with much fanfare, I bring you Mistress Maddie with plenty of glamour and some lively curlicues…. nice chair…
Of course they are all winners for simply entering the competition, and if they would like to leave their addresses at reception, then they will all receive something jolly through their letter boxes in the very near future. Obviously, I do have to pick an overall winner for this competition to continue, so… hmmm…I think it should be…. well…. who do you think it should be?
