Thank you @TheresaV 

If you do get another Red Thinker - two on the bounce - I almost feel sorry for @LukasB who will have to put up with your bragging rights joy

 

Thank you @Cleoriff 

Really pleased you think these are a great set of questions this time, as I tried to find some questions which are a little different this time smiling
