A lot of you had fun last week coming up with 5, 6 and one 7-letter words that could be formed using only the letters from the word HEARTLAND.
"There's more of that where that came from," I said to myself! And so I went back to the alphabet well and found these 4-letter words - all of them common words heard every day (except 1, where I went back to the title of a Shakespeare play), and I've put together another puzzle for everyone to solve...
So here you go! Using only the letters H, E, R, T, L, N, D and the letter A (you can use A once or twice), fill in the one word answers to the clues given. (Hint - only one of these 4-letter words has 2 letter 'A's in it!)
