Thank you! No need to apologise, I really appreciate the feedback. I didn't specifically aim for easy clues (although I had a few people in mind who I wanted to give it a go), but I did want to make sure they were all as well-constructed as I could make them, without excess words, etc. Having said that, I don't have a feel for how to fairly make clues harder, so thanks for those suggestions. Symmetry and unchecked letters both seem like good things to try to incorporate into my next grid, I'll give that a shot.
Thanks again for your solve and feedback! :)
