I'm stuck on 4 across and down, also 5 and 6 down. I'll keep looking through previous posts but I haven't been here since 'the change'.

Not sure I can access any replies I get, it's all a bit weird- I should get on here more often.

Thanks for any help,
Dee

@deem42,
Hi Dee,
What are the clues? Any letters so far?

The new site takes a little getting used to but becomes easier with practise. I tag all lovatts threads I come across with the same word: "Lovatts" (yep, my cup of imagination floweth over). Here's a few - yours should be amongst them..

@deem42,
Hi deem42

I agree, the new site will take a bit of getting used to, but if you click on able2know, and then scroll down in the box on the left to 'trivia and words games' and click on that, you should be pretty right.

4a = SHRUB
5d = RAID
6d = BAILOUT

Good Luck.

@lmur,
Here are the clues and the letters that I have fitting- don't forget it's cryptic.

4 d- Jam with a squirt of lemon
7 letters **U*E*E
I think the answer is SQUEEZE

5d- It's right to help with bombing mission
4 letters **I*
Thinking it may be AIDE?

6 d- Graduate and I get oaf to empty water from canoe
4 then 3 letters **I*O*T
I think it ends in OUT (thin out?)

4 a- Bush says, "Stop talking and massage!"
5 letters first, third and fifth letter are the start of the 3 answers above
maybe shush but can't fit that into the clue meaning
And it would make it S*A**
