    Puzzle 4

    As my birthday approaches I start to collect leaves - a little bizarre perhaps, but I enjoy it! :D

    On the first day of the month I collect 1 leaf, on the second day I collect 2 leaves, the third day I collect 3 leaves, and so on.

    By my birthday I will have collected 276 leaves altogether. On which day of the month is my birthday?

    That would be my Mother's Birthday, October 23rd. Huzzah! :mrgreen:

    I assume you meant October, right? ...right? :oops:

    I think the birthday is the day after. The 24th. You would have to collect the leaves before your birthday, I think.

    I've got it, but there must be loads of answers

    To fill in the square:

    61 57 66
    57 58 59
    63 59 42

    Providing we can use the same numbers, it fits

    Puzzle 7

    A man is found dead one Saturday morning. He was killed while his wife was sleeping. The wife tells the police all that she knows. She tells them that the cook was cooking breakfast, the maid was cleaning and the butler was getting the mail. The police immediately arrest the person who is responsible. Who is responsible and why?

    The wife I think. Because if she was sleeping she wouldn't know what everyone else was doing.

    Yeah, gotta be the wife. Unless the wife was sleep walking, and the dinner that the Cook was cooking was supposed to be the husband. Lol.
