We had five days away while in Hobart, a holiday within a holiday. My bright idea this year was to ask Santa for a jigsaw to puzzle over now my kids are finally old enough to know not to eat the pieces or touch the bits I've slaved over.

I did slave over it in between beach visits and managed to complete about an eighth of the one thousand pieces. The bright red bike was easy-ish and the straight edged outsides of course... The rest? ... well they're all muted shades of grey... 
So the pieces, the puzzle and my holiday pastime are all packed up in the box and back here next to me whispering... urging me to go away somewhere again.

I think we might need a three week holiday this time. I think that's how long a mostly grey 1000 piece puzzle takes.... listening Santa?


  1. This reminds me of a puzzle we couldnt finish that was a photo of the start of the New York marathon. All it was was a sea of muted faces, thousands of them! It was awful. I'll never forget it :)
    Maybe you could get a 2000 piece puzzle as that would require an even longer holiday :)

  2. we are about to spend a month at a cold beach near dunedin - I've packed two puzzles that came at xmas - should be fun :) le

  3. I would expect santa to give you the holiday AND the puzzle - I'm sure you deserve it! Lovely blog you have here...x

  4. You don't need to be on holidays...just start it up again and every time you go past...! Of course nothing else gets done until it is finished but then that is half the fun!! xx


Thanks for taking the time to write, Ann x
