I have become obsessed by Sudoku - even though I haven't finished one yet. But better, is Japanese-English: Let's go to WHSmith, clasping £2.75! Yes, let's.

I think it's good for my brain: I read somewhere that crosswords and the like can stave off Alzheimers, even though it's - probably/hopefully - a way off. So I'm still training on the Evening Standard easy crossword - it's basically just vocabulary - and I never get more than 75%. Call myself a wordsmith. But last night's ES sudoku, I couldn't even get started. I've been doing them here, and at least I can get started, but I can't finish those, either.

And I market myself as a completer-finisher. That could be a lie.
