Would you mind showing your workings on that one, helena? I can't see where ladder comes from!

The ROPE bit is obvious but I'm also confused about LADDER. How about BRIDGE for the "Rum" bit. I'm not a bridge player myself but is there a connection?

I suspect a typo. If RUM is really RUN then the answer is obvious. Perhaps Helena knew this or had an inspired guess.

Aaaah! Not wearing hosiery (well, not lately) that wouldn't have occurred to me!

Bullfrog,
When you do, do you prefer hold-ups or suspenders.

really at first i mis-read it as being run, but after the second reading i presumed it was a typo error, but bridge also fits, perhaps zed could provide us with some of the letters towards the answer

Sorry that was a typo
Reading your interchange proved more fun than seeing the answer though.
The only letter I had was the 'l'.a

Yikes another typo - that 'a' just came for the ride.
Could one of you also tell me the significance of "About to work inside?".
