Oh dear – this could be the biggest waste of my time in quite a while (and makes me glad I no longer pay by the minute for my connection), but it does satisfy one of my mild musings about my game playing ability and 80’s computer adventures: I’m totally rubbish at them, and they are harder than lots of todays games. Here I was thinking I was getting ready for Tartan Slippers, and all the time it’s simply because the original writers were of that annoying breed of people who consider The Times’ crossword puzzle a mild distraction whilst waiting for the kettle to boil first thing on the morning.
Before they’ve had a coffee.
Or in this case, a nice cup of tea.
For the record, I can’t do crossword puzzles.
Or make a decent cup of tea.
