i Cryptic Crossword 1040 Virgilius

June 10, 2014

I took a long time to get going today, made swift headway, and then struggled at the end with a few of the short answers in the NE and SE corners. I also miserably failed to spot the theme, despite my COD being 13d – ‘Basic education, with a couple of spelling mistakes (3,5,2)’.

Lots more in the 2009 blog:

    By chance,13d was my second one in and it was VERY helpful to guess it might be the theme (Virgilius normally has one) and then go hunting for Reading, Writing and Arithmetic and then words with three Rs… However, you might have had more fun!
