I had almost decided not to consult this site until I got on with the crossword a bit better, as I know so many of you can do it in X or N number of minutes!! Whereas for me it is going to take me X number of DAYS!! Am now getting on slowly but still stuck on first one across even accepting the hint (from Magworth, I think) that the adverb represents a noun.

Hi Mondrian - Think of the names of 3 people in a Christmas carol - they bore gifts

Hi mondrian
I had trouble with this too. Note that the full answer is (6,8,3,9) and the "3" is a very common little word. There is a blatant Christmas connection.

Chrises e and g. You so often come to my aid. Thanks for that suggestion. I will have to go and look up the spelling!! But I should be able to get on a bit better now. All in all I am glad that the Xword is going to take me ages. It will give me something to think about instead of worrying about what I haven`t yet done though of course I`ll still worry about that!! See you later.

In case Caravaggio and Old gal read this and haven`t read my posting in last week`s forum, I would just like to say a very very happy Christmas to you. We still miss you both.

Checking the spelling isn't straightforward - there seem to be lots of variant spellings!

Although there are variant spellings the answer to 11a and 16a is an anagram of 5 words in the clue

Good Afternoon, All. Quite straight forward this one, but I did take a bit of time to get 26 across. I spent ages trying to get another word for lunch, and somehow to get it to fit into the answer. Then it occurred to me that it might be something that actually happens after lunch.

Weather here a bit dreich but certainly milder than it has been of late.

Best wishes to all. I hope we find some other crosswords to fill the space between now and the next issue of RT
