Queensferry Harbour – a Jigsaw Puzzle

Winter is jigsaw puzzle season for us but we hadn’t done any for over a year, it seemed that we might have a jigsaw free winter because I just didn’t see any in the shops that I wanted to do, but when I saw this Queensferry Harbour one I had to buy it. At first – as often happens – I despaired of being able ever to complete it, but in the end we managed it within five or so days.

On Sunday the day dawned bright with a blue sky – and no rain. We had been looking forward to going to an annual book sale for ages, south of Edinburgh but it was cancelled at the last minute. Presumably the organisers thought that not many people would turn up due to the coronavirus being around. It meant we felt at a bit of a loose end so we decided to drive to South Queensferry – the scene of the puzzle – and had lunch there. I took just a few photos.

Yes, by then it had started to cloud over a wee bit, but it was still a nice wee change.

On the way back home we dropped in at Tesco supermarket intending to do our normal weekly shop and were greeted by empty shelves. Such a sense of panic with many people and I couldn’t help thinking that they probably didn’t have enough room in their freezers to accommodate everything they were buying – there was no meat left, or even eggs. I suspect a lot of the food would end up being wasted. Crazy.

Lah di dah, lah di dah. Can you tell that I’ve been watching Annie Hall?!

    • Margaret,
      It certainly looks that way, it should mean that the TBR stacks will go way down, especially as we won’t be going around buying even more books as we usually do!

  1. Congratulations on finishing that puzzle! It looks challenging. As you know, my Jack and I have been working on puzzles again this winter. Now that we’re self-isolating (I hate all this new terminology!), we’ll have puzzles – and books! – to keep us entertained.

    • Joan,
      It’s just as well we have plenty of books, and we bought a box which contains four jigsaw puzzles recently, London, Venice, Moscow and New York. The simplest and safest way of travelling!
