Last year, I added something new to my Life List – completing a puzzle book. It came about after I worked through a crossword with my mum and dad, and realised just how pathetic my general knowledge skills are. I thought a few puzzles couldn’t hurt, and seeing a Puzzler or two lying around reminds me very much of living at home.
I picked up one of the monthly editions of the Puzzler magazine, it just so happened to have Princess Kate on the cover – although I’m not really sure why. Does she like doing puzzles?
I immediately did the two easy puzzles, although I’m not 100% sure they really count as puzzled. Dot-to-dot maybe does, as you need to make sure you know your numbers and that you can cope with joining them in the right order. But is colouring in really a puzzle? Hmm.
Next I might try an actual crossword.
