  1. Very enjoyable and very clever, tea tray took a bit of a bashing!
    Thanks Phibs

  2. Sincere thanks to Phibs for the puzzle which was very entertaining. I liked 11a, 31a, 34a, 1d and 18d. My grid is now full, but I am yet to arrive at the two new words.

  3. That was fun, thank you Phibs. I have my two words although there are still a few others where I’m unsure about the word play – maybe Google will help.

  4. Typical Phibs! All done and dusted. I found this tough but very rewarding and great fun. I needed several bites at it with a handful of clues submitting each time, and some of the devious parsing took quite a bit of teasing out.

    Well done again, Phibs, and many thanks.

  5. Reasonably sure that I’ve entered the correct answers but, like Robert, I can’t pretend that I’ve got everything fully parsed.
    Definitely a devious one from Phibs, allowing very little room for error – the prize will be well earned this month!

    Many thanks, Phibs, you little rascal!
