Just Typing This While My Ears Are Thawing Out After Our Walk .... (Yes, I Forgot My Hat & Scarf)

Not the photos of Claire's 50th (they will come), but a couple more jigsaws I have done this year, so far.

This top one has 1,250 pieces, and took a bit longer than I expected!

This one has (only) 525 pieces ... well, actually one less!  I attempted this a couple of years back before things changed for me, and I had to pack it away ... and I lost a piece :(

Still I got them both done ... 6 jigsaws in one month (and counting.

And, today is February 11th, so - Who was the most recent person to tell you they love you?

I suppose one of my sisters-in-law.  I know Mum used to say it to me a lot, and Dad would say he did if asked (his generation!).  My 20 year old nephew called me "his lovely Auntie" when he was leaving yesterday, so maybe that counts ... Thanks, Dan.

And, to finish ... just because I can, the little man -

Sorry for the delay in writing

I will admit with that Jigsaw I had to divide the pieces via shapes, so I had loads of boards around the place!

Those are really cool puzzles! And I figure it goes without saying that the doggo is adorable!

I have never liked doing easy jigsaws, my Mum ws the same.

Wow, those jigsaws look complicated. I don't know if I have the time or will to do one that big. LOL!

Jiffy looks like he is doing okay theses days. Such a little guy. I so want to hug him. Did you make his sweater? I could never do work like that. My mom did, but I never could make sense of it.

And I will say I love you cause you know I do. I miss you bunches. Wish I had more time to be on LJ. Hugs and kisses.

Oh yes, I miss you too.

I have had a bit of a run of ill health ... but also of drifting again. However I seem to be pulling out of it again.

My hours at work got cut, which is not good for the bank balance, but I am lucky that I have the money from M&D to bolster me up. Once I am feeling more settled I will look to build up the hours a bit more, as I don't want to just run M&Ds money away.

I do wonder how things are with you ... often pray that you are feeling more peaceful about the last few years ... Yet another hug coming your way

Happy Easter xx

Happy Easter to you as well. Allergies are a problem lately. We has lot of rain and then a warm up. Everything is blooming so allergies are horrible right now.

I know about money being tight and it does worry you. I hope the work improves for you soon. Living on less is easier now that I live alone. I just have to decide what is important and what can wait.

Give Jiffy a hug since I can't and know I am hugging you as well.

Only just got to this after months of disruption.

I have a 1,000 piece National Gallery Masterpieces jigsaw (Degas, Monet, Pissarro, Rousseau, Van Gogh, Manet) that I bought several years ago for someone as a present.

Let's just say Trump and Brexit and move on :-(

Anyway, I have just recently found it after a house move and, if you'd like it, I can arrange to post it on down to you.

Let me know and we'll sort something out.

Well my LJing has been a bit up and down ... I think that seems to happen to many of us at the moment.

If you have no one else who wants to do the jigsaw I would love to give it a go ... as you can see I do enjoy a challenge. However they are expensive, and not cheep to post either, so let me know and I can send you a chq to cover it.

Happy Easter
