Brentwood, 4.54am: 15°C, overcast clouds

Could this be the answer to those “lockdown blues”?

In our quest to look out for activities you might want to consider taking up during the current lockdown conditions, how about a nice jigsaw puzzle?

And none come bigger or more complicated than Kodak’s “27 WONDERS OF THE WORLD” which consists of no less than 51,300 pieces!

It weighs in at 18.5 kos and covers 16.47 square metres so not something you could assemble on the average dining room table.

Each of the 27 individual puzzles are separately packed.

There’s also a large reference poster, information about each location and helpful instructions and tips.

And the cost? Well a snip at the equivalent of US$500.

As a possible alternative, why not consider the 2000 piece jigsaw from Japan which is called PURE HELL.

To make this, well, PURE HELL, this gem has no picture to work with, so there’s no way of working out where any of the pieces fit.

The box bears the warning that you should not even attempt the puzzle if you are a beginner. 

This puzzle is a steal at just £25, but you’ll have to import it yourself from Japan!

Another alternative comes from THE LITTLE FLOWER POT SHOP.

Starting from just £10 they offer four totally different transparent puzzles having no reference points from which to work.

The top 500 piece puzzle will set you back £125.61.

Personally I think I’d rather relax by listening to Margaret Mills who took us back to the Essex of 1724 as described by the author and poet, Daniel Defoe.

Listen again here to what Margaret had to say on this subject: –
