@gumpy01,
Yes, I saw it, gumpy01, but haven't so far managed to sort it out. Have tried anagrams, synonyms (Bradford and Roget) and one theme, but inspiration hasn't struck so far. Thank you, I'll keep trying. Apart from 32 - and I can never do those so I don't even try - I've done the rest. (It should be 'we', actually, as there's a group of us attempting to keep the grey cells silver-polished).

@gumpy01,
That was the first one I tried, and got the 'no matches' response. So i'm obviously looking at the wrong words. Back to the drawing-board.

@gumpy01,
I haven't tried doing that before - very interesting (particularly 'gallstones'). However...I must be particularly stupid this evening because I still can't see it. Thank you for your patience; I'll persevere tomorrow, though I'll probably wake up shouting out the answer at 3 am, which should surprise husband and cat.

@gardengnome,
If you've got gallstones you have gone far too far down the list. Hope you've warned hubby and cat

@gumpy01,
Thank you! I'd ignored that one because I'd never seen it as more than a two-word phrase before. Glad to have learnt something new. In the unlikely event that you need any clues yourself next month I hope I can repay you with some help. And husband and cat will rest easy tonight.

@gumpy01,
24 - do you remember a semi-comic song by Perry Como?; 33 I found by listing both author's books; 43 came from a friend who used to work for the GPO many years ago. Can't think of a better clue for 45 than the one given already.

@djmple,
I'm probably missing the obvious but cannot marry that song with the clues of the question

@gumpy01,
Do give any more detailed clue would just be stating the obvious.

@djmple,
I'm getting absolutely nowhere with 32. It's driving me round the bend. Anyone got any hints?

I will exchange a hint 32 for 33
