How awkward when things go wrong. I was rattling away this morning on a crossword when one of the words I was using just would not work out. It gave me no connection whatever to any word on one of the down spaces..
I had to completely change and opt for a different one. Having already chosen 4 words that incorporated letters in the forbidden one I had to refrain from using some options because they had an I or a U. as an ending to the word suggested.
However all's well that ends well.
Managed at last and can now watch my saved tele programme from last night.
Made up for the delay - did one complete in a fraction over half an hour.
