A blog to help me remember new, interesting or obscure words discovered while solving (mainly cryptic) crosswords.
The plan is to add them to static pages along with classics from my notebook.
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.
