    Well done, Sea! And thanks for setting us off on a monthly comp journey again here in the Den, Daeds.

    Ah, Daeds, you’re too generous. I didn’t expect that, and have, in fact, been checking the Den frequently today to find out what the theme for this month’s comp would be 🙂

    I’m delighted, of course, given the calibre of the entries, but hope no-one expects that same level of insight when it comes to October’s judging.

    Off to think of something to set…

    Well done Seagreen, fully deserved.
    Thanks, Daeds. Yes, I was in SA for the election. What do you mean by “on the nose”?

    Thanks John. Mostly I meant that you make us feel what it was like so well, the few places where you just tell us something directly stood out – e.g. ‘but the loss of his attendance bonus would have been intolerable’ – I would have preferred a sense of what intolerable meant to them. But it’s a seriously picky point for such a short word count and it’s a lovely bit of writing however you look at it
