i Cryptic Crossword 631 Phi

February 23, 2013

I found this a lot easier than the usual weekend puzzle, and lots of fun, though I must admit to having spotted the words forming in the left and right columns about three quarters of the way through, which helped no end. COD 2d – ‘Feet giving indication of someone’s sexual preference? (5)’.

As ever, the old Fifteensquared blog and clues missed.
