It’s Friday and you know what that means, my weekly LOGO QUIZ COMPETITION!!! Following on from last week’s theme of birds, this week I’m doing cats! I have a feeling there’s a couple here that might stump a few of you. But as someone asked me last week, ‘is it okay to ask other people for help?’, yes! If you are struggling, ask anyone, it just means you’ll have to share the prize with them if you win. Last week I gave away a big jar of sweets. What I didn’t mention was that I actually made up two of these jars. I had planned to give the other one away in a few weeks, but as Jane and Leah have been eyeing up the sweets like sugar-craving vultures, I’m having to give it away sooner rather than later. No tie-breaker this week. If there is more than one correct entry, I’ll just pick a winner out of a hat. As usual, email your answers to me at: email@example.com before 1pm on Monday. Good Luck!!!

Just under TWO hours to go until the cut off time for our logo quiz! Give it a go & also guess the number of sweets in the jar for a chance to win!
It's that time of the week again. FRIDAY LOGO QUIZ TIME!! This week, all the logos are birds. No particular reason, I just fancied giving it a theme. As usual, I'm giving away a prize of something I found around the office. This week, I found some jars that were leftover from an event we managed. So you know what I did? I filled one of them sweets!!! To enter, just email me your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. In case there are multiple people who guess them all correctly, as a tiebreaker, also include your guess of how many sweets are in the jar (have a look at the pics in the comments for a bit of guidance). Closest answers wins. Closing date is Monday at 1pm. Good Luck!
Throwback Thursday time! Apparently Leah is fed up of me posting pictures of her that she then just removes so has asked if I can 'mix it up a bit' and target Debby instead. I said I'd see what I could do. BUT, I actually have something better. I've managed to find a picture of our resident 'Mr Grumpy', cracking a smile. Drink it in people, because pictures of Del smiling are pretty rare. [Adam]

Seems that quite a few people enjoyed the LOGO QUIZ last week, so I'm doing it again this week. I've scoured the office for something to give away and I'm sorry to say, I think I gave away the best thing last week. No champagne this week. Instead I've found a bunch of 'desktop aquarium' things. It's a little fun aquarium that you fill with water and there are plastic fish that swim around it. I've found 7 to give away, so there's a really good chance you could win one if you enter. Send your answers to me at email@example.com. As before, closing date is Monday at 1pm. Good Luck!!
So apparently Leah really wasn't happy about the pic I posted up earlier and subsequently deleted it. If you managed to catch a glimpse of it, well done. If not, unlucky. I said I was just going to repost, but I kind of fear what sort of retaliation she would dish out if I did. Instead, I'm replacing it with another 'golf' pic. This one is from a few years ago when the MoF team played 'pub golf'. #tbt
"Despite what everyone might say, they're really not that simple". What do you think? #apostrophegate
Just back from a meeting, where they also had an office dog (well actually they had two, but I only managed to grab a picture of one of them). We really should have taken Louie with us, as he would have loved it. [Adam]
I found a bottle of champagne from Xmas in the company fridge and was going to nick it - figured I would just blame it on Leah. But then I had a change of heart and decided I'd give it away instead. Soooooo...it's QUIZ TIME!!!!! Attached is a logo quiz that I created. Feel free to have a go and see if you can guess the brands. Send me your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could win the champers. If more than one person gets all the answers correct, I'll put the names in a hat and pick a winner. If nobody gets them all, it will go to the person with the most correct answers. Good Luck!! *Edit - forgot to include a closing date. I'll give you the weekend to get them in, so closing date is 1pm on Monday 9th Jan.
It's time for Throwback Thursday #tbt, and this week's picture(s) I captured just before Xmas. I call it the evolution of a selfie. What starts as just 2 people, soon becomes 3 and then 4...[Adam]
