Susan and Sian, you are doing so well on this! I rarely manage to get all the words, about once a week is my average.

  2. Hah, only made ten but I dont’ care cos I am writing all over blogs again!! Hah hah!!

  3. Well you will never get as many as Sian, Minx, that’s for sure;-) And you must be pretty desperate if you are reduced to doing puzzles with us nerdy types — so glad blogger is back and you can get back to being creative and dazzling us all. But well done for giving it a go — polygon might give you some weird new words to put together in a poem, as there are often words neither I nor Susan’s dictionary have heard of.
    (And well done Susan!)

  4. Thank you Maxine, too kind but I don’t think I’m feeling very dazzling tonight – me feet hurt!
