Good Morning, All. Sorry to hear of the need for fasting, Magworth. Nothing makes me feel more deprived than when I know the cupboard is full, and I cannot touch. Hope you survive well.
RT 16, I actually found quite difficult, which is often the case when I read of others sailing through it. My initial sweep of the easy clues came up with only five answers (one of which was wrong. I managed to get there in the course of the day, but progress was slow. I have never heard of 12 across, but I don't suppose she has heard of me either.
Anyway, on with the day. Taking my granddaughter to the swimming baths. She swims, I sit with my crossword. God is in His heaven, and all will be well with the world.
Best wishes for now.
