Hi Mastro.

I think you are on to it there as teatime fits.

Hi JimC
Many thanks.
When you look at the remaining letters, it's
obvious but you get stuck down one avenue and it seems to 'blinker' you
Thanks again

Glad to be able to help.

Although, a dodgy clue as everyone knows that teatime is really at half-past three and involves cucumber & butter sandwiches made with bread that has had its crust trimmed off.

The clue-setter must probably be from 'up norf'.

Fondant fancies -- how deliciously decadent!

I've lived years north of Watford (mainly in Yorkshire & N-u-T), so have become slightly aware of the exotic tastes & meal times there.

Tea-time-wise, I've spent many an hour at one or other of the http://www.bettys.co.uk/">Betty's and can vouch for their fancies & teas (although I don't recall them ever serving cucumber sandwiches).
