Random Thoughts on Crosswords Cryptic and Concise + Recherché Times Crossword Clues Considered
On the move
In case you were wondering where I'd got to, a good part of my day is currently taken up with the business of moving house. After nearly 37 years in our present home in North Ealing, Janet and I are moving to be nearer Janet's twin sister in West Ealing, and in 37 years we seem to have accumulated an awful lot of memorabilia - or junk, depending on which way you look at it. Janet is much better at parting with things than I am, but I'm steeling myself to the task, and we've at least managed to rid ourselves of enough to make house (and garden) look presentable. All this has left me with a backlog of crosswords to be tackled, but we've reached the point where we've had an offer for the house we're selling and have made an offer for the house we want to buy, so I hope to catch up a little in the period before we exchange contracts. Nevertheless, with all the other things that have had to take a back seat in the last few weeks, it still doesn't really leave enough time to write about crosswords, so that will have to wait until we're firmly settled in our new home.

Wish us luck.

Good luck with that, Tony, which can be hassle, but I hope you can still make the S&B on 19 May.

Thanks, Anon. I'm hoping to get to the S&B, but I'm not counting on it.

Yes, good luck from me too. I can't think of anything more stressful than moving and I'm married to someone who never willingly throws away anything. I have a sort of mental pic of Ealing because my pupil master in chambers in Lincoln's Inn years ago had a very nice house and garden there. He moved to Sussex upon retirement and unfortunately I no longer have or can remember his Ealing address. It does sound as if the crucial part of the sale/purchase are in the bag for you. I hope the puzzles remain a pleasure rather than a chore.
