Hello. Quite an easy one today ( thank you for being kind on THIS weekend, setter) but there’s one I can’t quite get all the letters explained: novel taken up when new paper is introduced. With the letters I have , unexampled, if that’s a word, fits but I can’t work out why. I’m sure someone will make me blush but what the heck….

Thank you, Captain 2. I thought of “ exam” but rejected it as it doesn’t really mean paper. But there we go .
It will soon be bath time and bedtime but it would be lovely to hear from some of my heroines/heroes. I.e you!

Stevenj, Chambers gives one definition of 'paper' as 'a set of examination questions', so 'exam' seems fine.

Thanks, stevenj - and I don't mind if you remain unconvinced!

There must be something good on the telly. I’ve still not been summoned

Stevenj, it didn't seem at all rude! I've been in similar positions - the 'h'mm, well...maybe' ones - myself.
