“Lady Jill” here again. Which one, do I hear you ask? The miser, as in Week 1, or the munificent one who showers you with points as in Week 2? Now, there’s a question…

Last week’s theme was a touch nostalgic; this time I’m coming up to date and thinking about all of us who play the MM Links game. Reading our setters’ preambles over the last couple of years I’ve been struck by the extraordinary range of interests of everyone here. We could be any age from under 30 to 90+; hints dropped from time to time suggest that advancing years are no barrier to developing old hobbies and taking up new ones. Travel, of course: from pole to pole with almost every country in between. We are artistic - photography is one of our favourites – and crafty (in one sense at least!): there are knitters, cross-stitchers, embroiderers. Obviously we do puzzles of every sort, including crosswords of different shapes, sizes and content. And of course we love sports, whether as players, umpires or watchers. Together we must add up to the ideal model of how to spend leisure time.

For the record, I fall into the photography (landscapes usually), knitting (Christmas puddings at the moment), crosswords (with a preference for cryptic) and golf-watching (The Belfry is my nearest major course) categories.

According to normal practice, for the everyday running of MM, I shall follow this rule on word length, in that each of my pre-selected link words contains at least four letters and at most eight letters. Stray outside this range and you will be wasting one of your attempts!

Each of the selected link words may go in front of, or behind my challenge word to make a new longer word or to make a well-known phrase or saying. The combination will never be a person's name.

The competition will officially close on Sunday Evening at 7.00pm, when gen2 will declare my pre-selected words and then apply the same rules for awarding points that have been applied during all MM Link Games in the past. My set of four words to have their links predicted should appear below at 9.00am.

Yes, Patchett. They're quite simple and surprisingly effective. The fiddly bit is the holly leaves; I used to use artificial ones but they would never stay in and as children sometimes bought the puddings I thought it might be an elf and safety issue... If you're interested I could post the pattern?
