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!

    Sorry to hear this, Geoff. Even though I haven’t been participating in recent times, I’ve popped in now and then to read some of the stories. You’re right to take the time you need now. Loved ones take priority over everything. I wish you and Mrs. H all the best and I hope Mrs. H feels better soon.
