10 was wrong. I just (!) have 7 of the 3-letter words to do now.

Me, too: I wonder if they're the same 7!

I'm down to 2 now, but have no idea (36 and 45), but not confident of several others. Might your 7 be written in either direction, GK? Of course I may be way off!

Hi Chris,

36 and 45 are beautifully fair clues, however, I do agree they're not the easiest to get. Real penny drop moments with both I feel. For aristo's 36 you may have to brush up on your hip hop twang and for Marty's 45, the surface reading is eloquently written.

I'm gonna send the wordplay & Solution files to AB soon so he has them for when you guys are ready. Maybe in a few days, you may have to bribe him for an early publish..

If anyone is really scratching their head over a clue's wordplay even though you have the answer, then send me an email and I'll try and get back to you. I'm getting picked up at 3:30am but am taking my laptop with me cus I've found out we have wireless in the chalet. I'll still send files to AB in case that turns out to be a rumour, you'll soon know by weekend cus I'll pop back on and let you guys know.

Be good, Les

Hi les
Just 45 now, though there are probably mistakes elsewhere. I'll wait until the wordplay is published for the explanations.

Have a really great time!

Might 45 have also been given with punctuation included?

@chrise: no, sorry, my Nr 7 solution cannot be read either way!
Still struggling with 6 shorties: think I'll have to google hip-hop slang for Ixion's 36......
