Yesterday, for one reason or another … perhaps due to an early morning start and an appointment in deep suburbia … I felt a call towards a nostalgic past. I was quite powerless to do anything but follow. Finding myself at a little newsagent, my feet led me away from the fashion, entertainment and decorating magazines, and instead took me straight to the ‘puzzle’ section.
My purpose? Apparently I wasn’t interested in just any puzzle, I suddenly felt the need to rekindle my passion for crosswords.
My favourite crosswords used to be the huge double page versions in my mum’s monthly copy of ‘Women’s Weekly’. I happily found some similar versions today … and potentially even more exciting, there have been some amazing innovations in the world of crossworld building since my last visit.
There are now left-handed versions! This means the puzzle is on the left, while the clues are over to the right. Being a left-hander I find this to be a wonderful thing indeed. I’m hoping these squares of black and white will keep me company on my travels to and from work.
Have you reconnected with anything of late? If not, maybe you’d like to?
