killer 3/10

Morning all,

Has anyone else got Monday brain?

Took me about 15 mins just to get started (apart from the gimmies). Can only put it down to lack brain power. Wasn't too bad after that though. Maybe that is why they start us off gently at the beginning of the week!!

It did take a while to get started, because there were so many gimmes with 2 options and it just took time to go through them all before finding the key - once you have that it all falls out quite quickly. Not as difficult as last wednesday or thursday but still a reasonable standard, I thought.

I improved today in that I only thought I'd done it wrong where in fact I hadn't.

I agree with Dalek - could justifiably be called "Tricky" especially on a Monday morning:!: Just about managed it within the time suggested. Wonder when we'll get a "Tough" or "Deadly"?
