Hi Si,

I've been logging on to the BBC site for two weeks wanting to find the answer to the "What did I get" riddle, with no joy - in fact, all I got for my efforts was another riddle! So far these have been the first two I've not been able to crack, and it's driving me nuts! If the answers aren't going up on the BBC site, can you please post them here and put a sad man out of his misery?!?!

Many thanks (for a frustrated Christmas break!!)

Pete

I hope the BBC will be sorting it out soon! There appears to be two mitigating factors:

1) The Magazine Monitor came out of hibernation on a Tuesday (rather than starting on the usual Monday)

2) The editor of the Magazine has flu!

In the meantime, the first riddle was based on a My first is... type puzzle, the second is just a case of indexing.

Hope that helps,
Si

I'm afraid it is...

Over these past 50 riddles it has become increasingly time consuming to think up fresh ideas and has become more of a stress than the fun it started out as. Hence I have called time on it.

I hope it was fun whilst it lasted Smile
