Happy April everyone,

We hope you had a great Easter break and are enjoying spring with its blossom, baby lambs, daffodils and rain! And for some of us, a water drought until Christmas time! It's been busy here at DeskDemon - did you read in our Forums about the PA who was sacked for being too short and too young? Whatever next! What's New at DeskDemon is chockablock this month - so let's get cracking.

We have two fantastic competitions for you. You could win a luxury weekend at a 16th century Inn or £100 M&S gift cards in return for feedback on DeskDemon. Your thoughts are really important to us in the continuing development of the site, so please spare five minutes filling out our DeskDemon Survey.

In our 'Get Organised' competition we're giving away a Dymo LabelManager PnP labelling machine every week for ten weeks. Enter your best organisational tip and, as well as, the opportunity to win the Dymo LabelManager PnP, you'll also be entered into a draw to win a £250 spa day!
