[Edit: This is one of my early crosswords, where the clue “surfaces” don’t always make sense. Sorry about that. 🙂 For “proper” cryptic puzzles, skip to March 2019 and onwards.]
Here’s my January puzzle.
Quite a few 4s in this one, so maybe it’s a touch easier? Blockiness reduced to just four 2×2 squares. Hopefully tolerable. One clue might annoy some, but there you go. As always, feel free to let me know via Twitter if you’re trying/done it/liked it/hated it, and RT/share if you like.
