Places I’d like to see

Yet another jigsaw adventure, this time to the Writer’s Museum in Edinburgh, Scotland:

Strange, quirky buildings like this one are like a cattle prod to my imagination. I start wondering who built the building, in that spot to that style. And why. Was the quirkiness deliberate, or an accident dictated by the location?

And then, of course, I start day dreaming about the inside and how the original inhabitants may have lived…

Oddly enough the one thing I’m not curious about is the building’s current purpose. I mean, really…a museum for writers? What would it contain? Cabinets full of quills, pens and ink? Illegible, hand-written first drafts?

-cough-

Anyway, another beautiful building thanks to my jigsaw hobby. Now if only I were rich enough to visit it in the flesh. I could quite see myself as a globe-trotting old lady, maybe with my own Lear jet…

 

Every girl should have a little black number in the garage. ๐Ÿ˜‰

p.s. apologies for the lack of posts, but after being sick last week and going back to work this week, I have no energy left for thinking type stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

 


My new obsession – #jigsaw puzzles

I play games because I hate being bored, but sometimes the opportunity to be bored only lasts for a few minutes – that’s where these super-small, online jigsaw puzzles come in:

The one you can see in the screenshot above is called ‘Fox up in the tree’, and you can find it at the following link:

The #FREE jigsaw puzzles available on Jigsawplanet.com range from 300 pieces to just 4 [perfect for little kids]. The Fox puzzle shown in the screenshot is made up of only 12 pieces and took me just 36 seconds to complete…and I’m about 3 times slower than the people with the best times!

Another nice thing about Jigsawplanet is that you don’t have to register to do the puzzles. The only time you have to go to any effort at all – and that’s not much – is if you want to create your own puzzles. Yes, your own! My effort is not going to win any prizes but it was fun :

Basically, you:

  • sign up to jigsawplanet.com
  • click on ‘Create’
  • select a good quality photo from your computer
  • upload it to jigsawplanet.com
  • select the type of cuts you want – i.e. shapes – and how many and…that’s it. ๐Ÿ˜€

The very nicest thing about jigsawplanet.com, however, is that all the puzzles are created by ordinary people so the variety is never-ending.

If you have a few minutes to spare, try it out.

cheers
