Then, when I finally got around to doing it- three days ago - I opened to the page with the contest and realised I had certainly kept it late.
I could have tried to complete the puzzle on Tuesday night, slam my entry into an envelope with a first class stamp on it and then post it on Wednesday morning in the hope it would have had a chance of getting there on Thursday.
But, I couldn't.
It wasn't worth the effort.
With Royal Mail striking today; the closing date for entries - I did not want to risk any chance (and the price of a first class stamp!) the envelope didn't get to its destination until after the winner had been picked.
Not that I would have won. Still - 'you've gotta be in it to win it' they say.
It's my own fault, though. I had five weeks to get it sent out. I kept finding ways to put it off.
I'm certainly not going to leave the next one late. Or the ones after that.
