Titles in Mini-competitions

There has been some confusion as to whether the titles are included in the word and line counts in the monthly mini-competitions. No…titles are not counted. You can have 10 lines of poetry or 100 words of prose as well as your title 🙂

Thanks everyone for the support…Sandra 🙂

Thank you everyone for the emails and letters…they really help!

The repairs on the house have continued and, hopefully, will be completed in the no-too-distant future. I am really looking forward to being able to unpack all the saved items we boxed up in a rush after the flood and there are sure to be some surprises.

My ankle is out of its moonboot and although a little tender, I am getting around much more easily. I am driving again and was finally able to go to the bank a few days ago. A couple of people worried that their subscription cheques hadn’t been received when they weren’t processed but they have all been deposited now and should show upon statements.

I am endeavouring to catch up on the backlog but please email me if you have any concerns.

Thanks 🙂
