Anyone else fancy a brain teaser?




Inspired by Andrewr’s puzzler recently, I thought I would think something up. I would like to see a regular features of puzzles, guessing games from you all, anyway here go:-

My 1st is in trouble but not in strife,
My 2nd is in girfriend & also in wife.
My 3rd is the capital of a passion we share,
My next leads a shape, but it’s not quite square.
My 5th is in penny & also in pound,
My 6th starts “morning glory” with flowers abound.
My 7th starts the christian name of Andrewr’s frog,
My last is written by mistake on this blog.
What am I?
