Well it’s taken six days but last Saturday’s Times’ crossword has finally been completed. Google was not required, just additional effort in the mornings when the brain is definitely more alert.
The Saturday Times’ big crossword completed before the end of the afternoon, having resorted to Google just the once! (7 down: Poncho like garment = ruana)
We’d never been able to complete the last half-dozen clues in the Saturday Times’ big crossword without resorting to Google. Yesterday we managed it apart from having to confirm there was a Tolkien novel called ‘The Silmarillion’ (20 across). Well done us!
Also in The Times there was a mouth watering review of Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles by Tom Bower, describing the heir to the throne as “utterly out of touch and addicted to luxury” as well as being “an Olympian whinger”. Can’t wait for the paperback edition!
I sympathised with Janice Turner’s article Labour has been lost to fools and crackpots.
