@nextone,
So obvious when I see them - makes me feel like giving up Cryptics sometimes! Thanks Nextone - that's helped me complete the whole thing!

@vonny,
Hi Vonny,
The great fun of word play is that "click" when what you're looking at shifts to something else. Play with anagrams and alternative definitions often works.

@nextone,
I agree - and the Cryptics are my favourite, but oh so frustrating at times!
