A blog to help me remember new, interesting or obscure words or meanings discovered while solving (mainly cryptic) crosswords.
I allow myself a dictionary and the net to check if I’ve made up the name or spelling of that Welsh resort, river, flower e.t.c. (and yes there’s a crossword tautology there). If I’m stuck I use a crossword dictionary (Chambers Pocket) or a ‘list’ book (Bradford’s Pocket). If I’m still in the dark and a walk round the block or another glass of red doesn’t give me the required inspiration then I consult the mighty Big Dave’s Crossword blog for a hint.
