And a very pleasant summer’s day it has been here north of Wellington. A Christmassy puzzle has just gone up as this week’s offering, as if there aren’t enough crosswords already at this time of year.
Enjoy your festive season – back in the New year. Meanwhile, there’s my 3,000th puzzle in The Times on Monday, a Toughie from Kcit on the 30th to start the fourth thousand, something seasonal in the Independent on Ne’erday, with a Times Saturday Jumbo to follow the day after. I should also mention the Inquisitor on 9 January, just in case I don’t get the next update viewable on time!
