Condom roses are the ideal gift for Valentine's Day. Think about it - they are the ultimate 2-in-1 present.
They combine a reliable contraception, with a romantic gesture of love (because lets face it, just buying your partner a packet of condoms for Valentine's Day, isn't a good idea). read more
Believe it or not, maths is actually one of my strong points. I worked this out quite quickly.
Once you've compared tables 1 and 3, and realised 1 plate of toast = 2 cups of tea, you've basically done it! read more
Hands up who ran straight for the fountains first time? This puzzle seemed so simple, but as I'm starting to realise, there's always a twist.
The complicated maze at the top works as a distraction to the real solution here. read more
Hidden in the bushes near the hotel, This is far and away the most difficult puzzle yet! It had me thinking for a good 10 minutes.
I think the key is to work out the first 3 tiles underneath the starting tile. read more
Again, this puzzle was pretty straight forward. I was thinking about numbers, and which numbers have a flat top (as you have to go across to start with, unless you want to backtrack on yourself). read more
Easy-peesy puzzle, this one. Managed to work it out straight away, using no hints. It is only worth 10 picarats though.
I'm loving the animals on the bikes, The cat looks like he wants to eat the rabbit. read more
Like most men, I just dived right in there without really thinking this through. After about 3 minutes of shuffling random pieces of cheese around, I decided perhaps I actually need to think about this one. read more
After this brain teaser I thought I really must stop over analysing these puzzles. My first instinct was thinking that each number was a curtain.
So 1 would be a straight curtain, and 3 would be a tied curtain. read more
This one confused me. I managed to get the correct answer after about 10 seconds, but it was more luck than judgement.
I got the part where you have to follow the laser beam around the mirrors, but didn't realise it had marked out a large arrow. read more
I thought this was the most difficult puzzle yet. I actually had to get the pen and paper out to try and work it out.
I got to 9 mops for 27 days easily enough. But then struggled on the last 3 days. My first guess was 12. read more
Another Tetris type puzzle. I immediately realised it was a negative-space word. The shapes really didn't look like letters until you work it out.
This is the US version of the puzzle, I believe the UK version is called Letter Box Plate. read more
This puzzle is based on the classic fox, goose and bag of beans puzzle from the 9th century. I've done similar puzzles before so managed to work it out first time.
I was tempted to leave a lone-chick by itself just for the crack. read more
Always was a master of Tetris. Plus, I used to do a lot of jigsaws as a child (not really out of choice, it was all grandma seemed to have for entertainment).
So this puzzle was a doddle. As grandma always used to say, start with the corner pieces first, then try to work out the rest. read more
Finally a puzzle I can do! This literally took me 10 seconds to work out. I got a little distracted at first, thinking that the '???' boxes must be an identical colour.
But then I swiftly realised that the colour was irrelevant, as some boxes can't have other boxes next to them or above them. read more
When I saw this puzzle, I was thinking sheeez... this is going to be a long 170 puzzles. I got distracted by the animals, started thinking along the lines of which animals belong to the tourists.
I mean, the dog is across the water! It must be a different day. read more
The very first puzzle! Believe it or not, I actually struggled a little on this one. Perhaps it was the pressure I was facing, to get off to a good start.
I definitely over complicated it and started searching for codes hidden within the text. read more
Elementary my dear Layton! I bought this game at Christmas and have only just got around to opening it.
For those that don't know, The Spectre's Call is the 4th instalment of the excellent Professor Layton series. It's a charming little puzzle game that will keep you entertained for weeks. read more
This time of year can be very emotional if you haven't yet found that special person in your life.
Following on from my EasyCap review, I thought I'd go into more detail on exactly how I got my EasyCap working.
In 3 days of faffing around with this thing (and getting quite frustrated!) I eventually managed to overcome the driver problems, software issues, and audio quality problems I was facing. read more
Burrrrh... The office was as cold as a snowman's right testicle the other day. So, I decided to put together a wish list of 10 items that would make all our lives a little easier this Winter.
So here it is... 'The List'. In no particular order, other than that of my own imagination of course. read more

The birds are-a-tweeting, the bees are-a-humming, the ladies are-a-swooning and men everywhere are-a-panicking.

So Christmas is over. Yay! I hope you survived. But you're no doubt tired, hung over and sporting a newly acquired pot belly. You just couldn't leave those mince pies alone, could you? Naughty!
So why would you want to subject yourself to a manic shopping trip on Boxing Day? Because it is the first day of the January sales of course! read more
