Linda’s challenge this week
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “puzzle.” Use it any way you’d like!
I’ve mentioned before that my reading craze started on my first honeymoon in 1977 when I read 5 paperbacks, all horror stories, in the week we were away (poor bloke).
If you backtrack to the summer of 1976 when Kiki Dee and Elton John were at the top of the charts with Don’t Go Breaking My Heart and it was the hottest summer on record at the time, the tiance-to become-ex-husband and I had a caravan holiday for two weeks…….. alone!
We should have realised then that the relationship was doomed, as the first week I had chronic toothache and had to get an emergency appointment, and the second week started my puzzle phase. I completed about 5, though they were only 350 or 500 pieces not like the 1000 piece puzzles Hubby and I do today.
MSM (Maggie’s Surrogate Mummy) always had at least one puzzle on the go, and it’s addictive. You find one piece that fits and before you know it, you’re looking for more, sitting down at the table, and engrossed for about an hour!
When we stayed with her, we completed a fair few, one of which was a gift and is hanging here in our lounge together with two others we have done since we arrived.
