Stuck on two:

8a Salad pincers. I have T?N?S. Thinking probably TONGS but would appreciate confirmation.

29a Craving. I have T?I?IT. Must have made a mistake as I can't think of anything that fits.

Valentine smooches to anyone who can help.

@Francis,
Many thanks, Francis. THIRST fits perfectly once an error I'd made had been corrected (I had COSIER instead of CLOSER).

And Izzie - thanks for stopping by. There's a joke in here somewhere..a Frenchman, an English girl and an Irishman...

Crossword is now completed; leaving ample time to prepare for valentine's day <stretches groin>

@lmur,
Is it this joke?

A Frenchman, an Englishwoman and an Irishman find a wizard on the top of a tall cliff. The wizard orders them to jump off the cliff, but he also promises that if they say anything while falling, they will get it at the bottom of the cliff. So first, the Englishwoman jumps off the cliff and shouts, "Pillows!" and so she lands on some pillows. Then the Frenchman jumps off the cliff, and he shouts, "Hay!" and so he lands on some hay. Finally the Irishman runs to jump off the cliff, but he trips on a rock just before the jump and says, "Aw, shite!"

Hi Dutchy,

Thanks for confirming. As usual, I'm leaving it to the last minute to do these things. Still have an entire "stinker" to complete with the closing date being next Thursday (my entry has to cross the Irish Sea!).

Hope breakfast was nice. Fruit cocktail? Wink

@Francis,
Grrr!

Here's one I've specially adapted..

Izzie had moved into her new house in Paris. On her first day, Francis, the local coalman, paid her a visit. "How do you deliver?" Izzie asked.; "You have a choice", Francis replied. "Coal-de-sack or a-la-carte."

@Dutchy,
Ah, no Dutchy, thanks all the same. I'll have plenty of time on Sunday. Plus my wife chips in as well - it's a sort of foreplay!

Razz Francis - you're cucumber-like in all respects (I trust you're familiar with the phrase?)!
