Dear Readers, you knocked it out of the park again! Congratulations to Susan, Anne and Fran and Bobby Freelove who all got 30 out of 30, with Mike at Alittlebitoutoffocus with 28 out of 30 (though he gave me the idea for the quiz so I am going to give an extra 2 points, that puts him on 30 out of 30 as well). Well done everybody! Let’s see how we get on tomorrow. And I am thinking of something fiendish for over the Christmas break, so watch this space….
