Morning Simon

Love your puzzles.

The answer to number 2 - the truck driver isn't in his truck =  he could be walking down the street and it wouldn't matter which direction he was travelling in.

I've got to think about the other two (might have to ask my colleagues - Sshh)  ;)

Hiya

I'm becoming obsessed by these problems - they're putting me off my work  :o :o

Number 1 - birthday candles - as middle-aged people lie about their age.
Number 2 - I answered above.
Number 3 - lunch, dinner, supper ................

How did I do?
