i Cryptic Crossword 1422 Quixote

August 31, 2015

What better on a grey and damp looking Bank Holiday Monday than a breezy Quixote to start the day? Not much here that should have given many solvers pause, apart from 13d perhaps. Solving time, handily, as long as the rinse and spin cycle on the washing machine.

COD? 8d – ‘Penetrate well with difficulty getting right inside – hoping clothes will be this? (5-9)’.

Many thanks to Phil and Andy who provided links while I was sunning myself on a beach last week. Both have kindly volunteered to take up regular blogging duties. With Cornick carrying on with his regular Saturday blogs, and covering when I can’t blog, it gives us a nice bit of variety. Thanks all! If there’s anybody out there who feels the urge to have a go at blogging, do let me know.

    It was kind of you to ask, Jon. πŸ™‚

    All the clues fell consecutively today without any referring back: if this has ever happened to me before I don’t remember it. Had it not been for a gang of bluetits clowning about and generally being distracting, this would have been a very quick solve indeed. A couple of appreciative snorts along the way, for 23ac and 13d.
