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.
