Dear Readers, we had a full set of perfect results this week, with 12 out of 12 for Claire, Fran and Bobby Freelove and Joanna Smith (who I think might be a first-timer for the quiz, but remind me if I’m wrong, Joanna!). Well done to all of you, and I shall be trying to catch you out again tomorrow ūüôā
