Microcosms Hiatus

Apologies to all those of you who support Microcosms week after week, but I have sadly had to make the decision to suspend contest posts for a couple of months at least.

The operation which my wife had on her shoulder was not successful; in fact, it has left her in more pain than she was experiencing before. This may, I hope, be just the effects of the procedure; time and physiotherapy may provide some improvement. In the short term, however, I need to devote my time to looking after her, our dogs and the household.

If anyone wishes to take over administration of Microcosms in the meantime, I would be happy to provide guidance to facilitate this.

Countdown to midnight - a New Year and a New Contest!
