First things first, thank you to everyone who entered. A great man once said that people who suggest messages to be written on the bottom of bottles will go far in life, and great men aren't to be argued with. From nearly 1000 entries we deliberated, procrastinated, pontificated and debated our way to a shortlist. And then we had lunch because we were hungry.
After lunch we deliberated, procrastinated, pontif- you get the gist - again. And our shortlist became a bit shorter. But we couldn't pick an outright winner. So we had a cup of tea and a biscuit and thought, hang about, why don't we just have three winners? And that was that.
Your three winners, who will each see their words on thousands of our bottoms in the not too distant future (as well as winning a fridge full of smoothies) are...
Have you tried looking behind the sofa? (Chris)
G'day from Down Under (Nadine Dawes)
For rescue: Insert note. Throw in sea. (Tony)
Well done to Chris, Nadine and Tony, and thanks again to everyone who entered.
