And you can watch tv or listen to music at the same time.
Ethelmay - have you tried the adults colouring books? The designs are quite complicated - think William Morris wallpaper - and totally engrossingm
Yes Jo300, they are great. When one of my sons asked me what Id like one Christmas a couple of years ago I asked him for one. He didn't even know they existed. There are some brilliant patterns to colour. Sometimes I'll colour one page while my grandson colours the one opposite :-) I love anything arty or creative and these books are really super :-) x
Love and hugs
I find doing Codewords (rather than crosswords) very absorbing too. For anyone who hasn't seen them they are puzzles with a grid which looks like a crossword but has a number in each square. They fill in 3 letters to start you off and you have to work out all the other letters. Tesco do a monthly called Handy Codewords. Its pocket size and has 60 puzzles in. I find I can get lost for hours doing these x
Sound good. I must look out for them
Sorry, the site keeps duplicating my posts
Librivox, free audio books...too many old classics and nothing new or up todate but...if you dont mind a good Sherlock Holmes story, I recommend finding the stories read by David Clarke. His name is usually shown on the book ad cover. He is by far the best reader and he gives his characters different accents. Well worth a look at, or a listen to xx
Does your local library have an elibrary? Ours does, so u can borrow ebooks n e audiobooks for free- eg from Borrowbox. I've just borrowed one but must admit I prefer to have the book in my hand lol
Hi Buttercup, I might enquire about that, thanks Like you, I do prefer a real book but sometimes, if I need to chill, I can be painting or doing embroidery or something and have my earphones in and listen to a story being read at the same time. I find it very relaxing. Daytime tv is usually mindless and sometimes the radio gets just too much, even though I love music.
Just seen a "Sticker yourself happy" book in the Book People catalogue. It's sticker- by- numbers and is a 64 page paperback. Worthlooking at Ethelmay?
Ooo..well worth a look-at Buttercup.. I shall investigate tomorrow Thankyou
Hi buttercup01, have just googled 'sticker book'and there are loads! Will have a wander through them tomorrow. I like one Ive seen though, it shows you a lion's head. The same book has an elephant and a peacock I got sidetracked into colouring books. I didn't realise there were so many. There are fashion ones which are tempting,the 20's to the 60's. I love all the art deco stuff so some fall into that catagory.
Hope u enjoyed having a wander today Ethelmay x
I did thanks buttercup01. Tooo many to choose from but I think Ive narrowed it down lol. Going to make my final choices tomorrow, too many distractions today
Those adult sticker books are very tempting. I could get my granddaughter to help.
