Merry January. The Results Are In...

Today is Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Wait, come back. Apparently Blue Monday was completely made-up for some PR thing. However, we organised Merry January back in December as a small way of brightening up everyone's January. And what better day to draw the winners than today?

So, earlier on, in a completely sterilised environment, adjudicated by the spirit of Norris McWhirter, the draw was made. And we are delighted to announce the winners here.

First of all, a big thanks to all that entered, and to everyone who sent pleasant messages thanking us for making the normally depressing month of January just a little more exciting.

The winners (drum roll)...

A night for two at the Hemel Hempsted Travelodge: Winner - Mark Earls 

A screen-printed poster by excellent illustrator and
