Tomorrow we'll be travelling home and then visiting our daughter for dinner so I might not have time to do a news blog. We haven't been immune to the news this week as we have a TV and we get a newspaper each day. I like the Times as it's fairly accurate with its reporting and it has a great puzzle section.
Having had two close relatives (my Mum and her sister) succumb and pass away to Alzheimer's I can be forgiven for being a bit paranoid about going the same way. I do a lot of crosswords and puzzles. I particularly like the killer sudoku in the Times. There are usually two, one harder than the other and they give a time for completing them. This week has been frustrating as twice I have messed up on the harder ones. However yesterday I managed to do both but the easy one was supposed to take 12 minutes and it took me ages. The harder one was quoted at 54 minutes. I nearly didn't start it but I love a challenge and I completed that one in much less time.
Now, should I just bask in the satisfaction of completing them or worry that my brain seems to work differently from the norm? That's a rhetorical question, no sassy answers required.
