Flattered as I am to be singled out, there are many others on this site that do as good a job (or better) than I do. I won't mention names as I am sure to leave someone out!

@Laura

Welcome to the site. I used to do a lot on another site (whose name I won't mention) but so many of the people on there seem only to be interested in how quickly they can post as many answers as possible and then get ratty if you add an explanation of the wordplay. Here, it's much more friendly and leisurely.

And yes, DT is shorthand for the Daily Telegraph, although this gets confusing on Sunday as ST can mean the Times or the Telegraph. If you get in touch with me via the Contact page on my blog, I could send you a few (recent!) Telegraph crosswords to supplement your supply.

Thanks Laura for putting me out of my misery. I have been wracking my brain on the Welsh Dressers clue since MD first posted it.

Interested to note you dwell in the land downunder where I spent a couple of years in the mid sixties (writer pauses to stroke long white beard) with time in Adelaide, Alice Springs and Melbourne. Mind you in those days they didn't have the magic box of tricks known as the world wide web which is, to an old codger such as I, well, magical and so forums such as this were just stuff of dreams.

As an avid "Grauniad" fan (like yourself?) I have yet to see any queries from any with calls for help. Are we more cliqueish than DT solvers?

Best wishes

@ Big Dave - thanks heaps, haven't attempted the DT in quite a while - will contact you when I get back from my weekend away

@Jim B - No doubt you will be hearing from me soon with some tricky Gaundria clues! (wish I had a long white beard to stroke- I'm sure it must make thinking easier)
