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)

2. Heath and fen birds die quickly with bad hearts (5)

3. War paint for a watchdog? (9)

4. Attend dance outside hospital unit (9)

5. Gun dog, in shirt, prepared for going on stage, perhaps (6,7)

Hi jolan
I wonder if the lack of replies is because everyone else is as baffled as I am!

I hope to have a more detailed look later on, but I've also a fair amount of cooking to do this afternoon.
