Rington’s Through The Years – a jigsaw puzzle

I was very lucky this Christmas in that I received a new jigsaw puzzle from a friend from the north-east of England where the company Rington’s is something of an institution, they market tea, coffee, biscuits, delicious teacakes and all sorts of tea/coffee related goods. The puzzle design consists of a collage of their wares over the many years they’ve been selling them, including commemorative caddies and teapots. Lots of them feature royalty so the Queen is here from 1953 youngster to just about the present day I think.

This is a difficult puzzle! I was so bored during our very quiet no guests Christmas Day that I was glad to break open the seal and begin it, there was absolutely nothing worth watching on TV on the many channels that we have, mind you we don’t have Netflix, that might have helped but I don’t really want it – I think. Progress so far has been fairly slow but it’s not driving me around the bend – yet.

  1. I remember once my sister offered me a puzzle – 1 000 pieces ! I don’t think I ever finished it, lack of space to spread it out, but it was fun while it lasted. I just hope you don’t have a cat, mine would have a field day with this 🙂

    • Iza,
      We’re a pet free zone! I never thought a cat would be attracted to messing about with puzzle pieces. This one is 1,000 pieces so it’s just as well we don’t have a cat.
