A daily newspaper has been part of my breakfast routine all my life. I can’t imagine ever abandoning it to digital news, although the ‘Press’ these days is not as good as it used to be. It’s smaller, has many errors, and features large photographs that sometimes bear little relevance to the story they accompany. I like to read local news, and I enjoy the puzzles – plus I’m a fan of Munro!
I do the Code Cracker and the Cryptic Crossword, and usually manage to finish the latter on the second or third go. Stephen does the Quick Crossword and the Word-Builder, where his score is always Excellent, and sometimes Amazing. Often I also do the new Wordfit. This is rather mechanical, just a matter of crossing words off lists, but it can be relaxing. Which puzzles do you enjoy?
