All my life, I’ve been a creative person. Not just with writing, but reading and art. I used to love doing Paint by Numbers, which was a great activity to help me with my nerve damage. My hands shook quite a lot, when it got worse, so that had to stop. So I turned to jigsaw puzzles – not tiny little ones, but big massive 1000 or more pieces that took weeks. But, then my nerve damage for bad again and I’d end up in a mess or with unfinished pieces – or a mountain of finished jigsaw that had nowhere to go.
A great new thing that is compact, easy to use and can be carried around with you, are Adult Colouring Books. All the rage now, it’s easier to find something that appeals to you. From movie related – Harry Potter etc – to elaborate designs or animals, there’s a little something for everyone.
