After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. I was wondering if it’s possible to somehow submit solved crosswords for your inspection before the big reveal. I like the new format much better as it really helped me get 2 and 10 down, which were otherwise unsolvable in my opinion. On the other hand, it’s much harder for the setter to come up not only with original clues but also with words that would fit into the rigid grid.Kudos to you for lots of really ingenious ways to nudge us towards the right answers.
