debris4spike: (Spike - face + body + my name)
As all of you probably know by now we had a terrorist related incident in London, and as ever random people walking through the city are injured or have lost their lives.  It seems small compared with other atrocities, but no doubt is meant to scare people away from the city.

No way - terrorists are not going to run my life ... or my country!

Anyway, enough of politics (etc) not something I usually even mention on LJ.

##########

I keep saying I am back and then disappear!  Last time I picked up a tummy bug (I think the kid who sat in front of me at Church the previous day was ill), and sadly my Chronic Fatigue set back in ... so I somehow lost a week.  I managed to work for 2 days, but that was all.

So, I need to focus, and get back on track.  There is no way I can skim back through your news, and I must yet again apologise that I have been a bad friend (I should get that sentence in the pc memory and that way just fill that line in each time! ).

So what I need to do is do a catch-up post incase any of you remember who I am, and want to know where I am and what I am doing!It's all about me - )

I do hope that you are all well ... any news, please let me know.
*group hugs*

Having had a rough couple of days where I have slept all afternoon again, I had a good day.

No work this afternoon, as some clinics were cancelled as the physiologist is off sick.  So I had lunch and caught a bus into the city and took some jigsaws to a charity shop ... I am re-organising my bedroom.

So happy to have made a start at that, and even happier to be feeling a bit better again.

I managed to get a few pictures taken over the weekend ... I finished a jigsaw ... it is stunning ...

Venice in 1000 pieces )


Dad was busy in the garage ...

Thirsty? )

And, well, lets just say, Jiffy was being ... Jiffy!

There's a lot of garden to supervise )

It's cold today so Mum and I didn't stay out for too long ... now I get a chance to spend some extra time on the jigsaw I am working on.

debris4spike: (Yay!)

Actually, I did about 1/2 of this last night, while we watched "Around the World in 80 Days" ... and finished the last 30ish pieces this morning.

I did tell you I like the more unusual pictures.

I think most of you know as much about me as you need to - and thus you know my hobbies!

I suppose the one I can talk about are jig-saws ... just so that I don't fudge this answer, like I did yesterday!
 
JIGSAWS

I started doing them as a baby - and when we were kids we had a huge box of them, and the 3 of us would have speed competitions on wet afternoons. My favourite was a view of Butlins swimming pool with 300 pieces, and I did it so many times that I think I could eventually know where each piece went anyway!

Since then I have progressed - my favourite size is 1,000 piece as it is such that I can move it, and reach each side. I always do puzzles on sheets of hardboard that slide under a bed, or settee when not being worked on.

I have done Impossipuzzle (baked beans) ones, silver foil ones, double sided ones and Wasgijs ... as well as "normal" ones. Unlike Mum I prefer unusual picyures - she likes the traditional cottage scene - I love anything.
 
At present I have-
1) - 1,000 here of a cartoon beach scene.
2) - 3,000 here of a painting done by Monet (that is going very slowly!)
3) - 1,000 in Bude of a pair of Dray horses delivering to a pub.

For those who aren't keeping up with this meme. the full list is -

Day 2 - Good Friday

Today is a good day - well it's Good Friday.  Remembering the death of Jesus ... but I am am just so happy that He came to this earth, so that He could die.

"God so loved the world, that He gave His Son."  John 3 v 16

But, there again today is great - I have had the day off, and was able to do some of my jigsaw, without feeling guilty that I should be actually working!!

Just got thie last few pieces in while I was having my cuppa when I got in from work!  The picture isn't great as I just cheated and used the flash - but at least I get it posted today!

Photobucket 


1,000 pieces, and so many colours it was reall hard.  For the observant, you may be able to see the R.N.L.I. Flag in the pic ... this is a charity supporting the Royal National Lifeboat Campaign.

Just a small catch-up.

I had blood tests today, again, but if that doesn't get anywhere, then I shall take[info]mad_brilliant_s advice and persue food allergies.  At least she has given me another way to go, which the doctor was running out of!

The snow has basically gone here, even if a few miles up the road is a different story!  I shall have a nasty drive to Plymouth on Friday if this continues .... but at least most of the main roads are open, and hope to stay that way.

Over the last few evenings I have done a jig-saw that I had for Christmas.  Most people like cute scenes, but as you can see, I do a variety of them - This is the latest -


Photobucket

Toni bought me that as one of a pair - the other is just Tiggers!

And, if you are still feeling those February-blues, she also sent me the following e-mail :-

BOB AND THE BLONDE
                                                                  
Bob, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm and sat down next to a blonde.   The news was about to start and so they both looked up at the TV above the bar.                
                                                                           
The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.  The blonde looked at Bob and said  'Do you think he'll do it ?'                                                                                                                                
Bob says  'You know what, I bet he will jump.'                                                                
The blonde replied  'Well, I bet he won't.'                                                               

Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said  'You're on!'

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building,

falling to his death.  The blonde was very upset but, without grudge, handed her $20 to Bob, saying 'Fair's fair.  Here's your money'.   

Bob replied  'I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5pm news and so I knew he'd jump.'   The blond responded  'I did too but I didn't think he'd do it again.'  

Bob took the money !!

Well, I suppose I ought to now get some letters written that are owed - Hope you all have a fun day.
