I’ve always liked puzzles. I started off with wordsearches as a youngen, loving those kids puzzle books with everything in and the free pen. Graduated on to Logic puzzles thanks to a friend of my brother who would pop me on her lap as I watched her complete them, fascinated. Then like many people, onto Sudoku, happily ending up most recently at Hanjie which I’ve been doing for a couple of years now. This involves numbers and colouring in – perfect for me!
WHSmith, the only stockists of the Hanjie book*, rarely have them in stock. Bored of going in to Wood Green for nowt, I thought I’d go the whole hog and subscribe. And I got my first copy delivered to my door today.
However, I was a little perturbed by the advertising enclosed. For some unexplained reason, it made me feel a little old before my time;
- 12 Chances to WIN-A-FREE Craftmatic III Adjustable Bed!
- Your WILL is a vitally important document
- Take a look at the benefits of the Age Concern Guarenteed Funeral Plan
- And don’t forget the advert for a reversible, yes, reversible cape. ‘Elegant wear regardless of the weather!
Right, I’m off for a sponge bath…
*Which was previously called Tsunami but funnily enough they rebranded a year or two ago.
