Cross Words

We've now been getting the international Guardian for a couple of weeks and it's well worth the subscription. Not so much for the articles - which are of Guardian quality, but appertaining more to international news as opposed to UK stuff (which makes sense I suppose) - but for the crosswords.

There are two - a quick one (yeh, right, really quick !) and a cryptic one and we are finding them most enjoyable. My parents used to spend endless hours with cryptic crosswords and, as I occasionally wandered through the living room, I would join in. But not with the same enthusiasm as I seem to have dug up from somewhere.

All eyes are now on the postman's arrival today as he brings the latest issue with the answers we need to check.

In my degenerate youth, when not out partying, I remember staying up all night pondering upon cryptic crossword puzzles. I find them easier than the 'easy' ones, as you can work out the answer, you dont have to know it!
