Is there going to be no new monthly puzzles?

Very embarrassingly, I had completely forgotten about posting the new puzzle. Embarassed This despite it having been ready in November!! The January puzzle is now available, along with the solution and explanation to the December puzzle.

My apologies for the lateness, but fear not Hayley they will continue. Smile

Well done me, I remembered this month! Very Happy

The February puzzle (Occasion) is available, along with the solution and explanations for the January puzzle. Enjoy.

All the leaplings (new word to me, but let's go with it) have celebrated their birthdays and we can now move on to March. My grandmother was a leapling, so I can truthfully say "I attended my grandmother's 21st birthday party"! Cool

The March puzzle is now available to you, together with the solution and explanations for the February puzzle.

Apologies for the day lateness (my memory rather than not ready, honest!) but the April puzzle is now available along with the solution to the March puzzle. The explanations for the latter will follow shortly.

A small word of warning. My trusty hairy tester has declared the April puzzle to be my hardest yet. Surprised

It's May 1st, so there is a new puzzle (What You See) ready for you to try.

However, I am not posting the solution to the April puzzle yet. This is due to me making an error with one of the clues, which I spotted when I was constructing the explanations. The preamble states that "One of the clues reveals a helpful hint for replacements". Unfortunately this clue (11a) although one of my favourites, was the old version that did not contain that hint. The new version is now in place. I am extending the deadline for solution publication to Monday 6th May to allow anyone who wants to revisit the puzzle to do so.

With apologies for the original oversight. Embarassed
