Photo 4

I've always been a fairly quiet person, happiest in my home, with my own company, doing my own thing. I don't see this as a negative in any way. I'm not a recluse. I have friends, I enjoy socialising and I'll happily go out and try something new. If anything I see it as a positive. I'm glad I like myself - life is so much easier if you do, don't you think? 


Today I decided to 'play' with a birthday present and sat down to sort through the jigsaw pieces. It's a 500 piece puzzle and the pieces feel huge -  like something you'd get from the Early Learning Centre :)

I'm not complaining though. I have a few little charity projects on at the moment with time limits so it's a perfect size for me to fit in around everything else I've got on the go. 

The border is done and the picture is already taking shape. While I was sat my mind wandered back to when I was 10 and I finished my first 1000 piece puzzle which was a Christmas present. Dad stuck it on a board for me and hung it on my bedroom wall. I wonder if it was a 70's thing or if people still do that. 

When I think about it I've not changed much since I completed that first jigsaw 40 years ago. Deep down I'm still a homebird, happy with who I am, happy doing the simple things in life. Which is why a quiet afternoon with a jigsaw and a cup of tea pretty much sums me up.

  1. You can't beat a good jigsaw and a cup of tea. Lily loves doing jigsaws and it's always a pleasure to 'help' her.
    The picture is lovely and colourful. X

    1. I do love a good jigsaw and a cuppa. When I've got one on the table it's amazing how quickly I get my housework done so I can sit down to it. xx

    1. They feel huge after fiddling around with small pieces from 1000 jigsaws. But they're nice to work with and easy on the eyes so I might buy a couple of 500 piece ones. xx

  3. Sounds like the perfect pastime to me. I do jigsaw puzzles on-line. Of course, if I were to sit down with an actual jigsaw puzzle, which I have done from time to time, I'll have a kitty who'll be wanting to "help" either by batting at the pieces or plopping himself down on top of everything!

    1. On line puzzles are neat and tidy aren't they and the added bonus is pieces don't get lost! Aww, kitty just wants to help. xx
