Dear Readers, we are all doing very well this week, with Fran and Bobby Freelove and Mike from Alittlebitoutoffocus both getting 15 out of 15. A special shout out to Molly who completed her first quiz this week and also got 15 out of 15! And an extra special shout out to Rosalind and her husband, who had a jolly good bash at the quiz in spite of both professing ignorance on the subject of little brown jobs – you got 8 out of 15 which is more than half so that still counts as at least a silver star in my book. No wooden spoons here (unless you are short of one in the kitchen, in which case I’ll see what I can do). Well done everybody, and thank you for having a bash. 

Here are the answers, and I can promise you that tomorrow’s quiz will be a little bit different…
