Good morning friends. Hope the week went well. Here are this week's clues. Hope they prove sensible and challenging. I'm taking a friend for an eye test at midday and may not be back by 5. I'll look in when I return, probably in the evening. Have fun! J
I set clues just for pleasure. I wonder if some of you excellent regulars would like to try a few? Since they're new, no letters!
Please withhold solutions till 5 pm (GMT) to allow others to have a go.
1. Over repaired? It doesn’t start! (5)
