So, the post you've been waiting for - it's Monday evening and here are the answers:
I think everybody got this one correct. Just a starter to ease you into the game.
This one caused a few more problems. Incorrect, but plausible answers included polycotton (which I thought was very inspired).
Now I apologise for this one. Tea-leaf is hyphenated sometimes and sometimes two words and therefore not strictly a compound word. Mea culpa. But most people did get it right.
A few guesses of spotless for this one, which I totally see the logic behind.
Almost all guessed correctly.
Caused a few problems. Hey, they couldn't ALL be straightforward!
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Didn't think this would cause as many problems as it did. We had plum duff, fruitcake, fivefold (inspired guess) and plumline.
A tough one. Baywatch, stopwatch, snacktime, sundial, playtime, snacktime, daytime. All plausible, but not what we were after.
So obvious once you got it. But we also had dipstick, ubend, panstick and heartbroken (which took me a while to see, but oh, yeah).
Six clever people got all 10 correct with their original guesses - Sue, Amanda, Libby, Meg, Louise and Val. Bravo all of you! Look out for an email from me soon.
And to everybody, thanks so much for playing along. It was really good fun from my end and I hope it was for you too. Somebody suggested a festive theme for round 2, which might be fun - what do you think?
Also, thanks to those brave souls who have volunteered as photographers for the next round - if you feel you'd be able to photograph one of the words next time out, please do drop me an email.
