    Thanks to Quaiteaux for the entertaining puzzle. My favourite clues were 8a, 4d and 13d.

    Thank you Quaiteaux for the quite tough challenge, I hadn’t heard of 19a and 2d, even though the solutions were very clear from the wordplay. I liked 15a, 18a and 13a, not least because I can see the border of the latter from my window.
