    • Eek! Yes you’re right, of course, it should indeed be 1,1,1. I’ll amend it, just in case anyone else wants to have a go.

      well, I’m pleased that this one wasn’t a walkover…. at least, assuming that was for the right reasons!

      (And I’m glad you liked 3 down, which is one of my favourites 🙂
