It's a fair cop guv- spent so long on the clues-forgot to check the counts. I shall beat myself over lunch. Still it keeps arrse ticking over the weekend and keeps me off the dodgy websites.

So lets see, you're posting on ARRSE when you should be doing something else - nothing changes there eh mate!

More worrying is that devexwarrior would rather think these things up instead off looking at porn, what is the army coming to?

For CR....it's a 4 course starter, followed by a four course main and choice of 10 sweets...
Shouldn't the word 'choice' be deleted from the above post?
