As I head in the direction of becoming a non-smoker I'm looking for stuff to do with my hands. This is real challenge because: a) I'm left handed so never did learn to knit or crochet - and doubt I ever will. For the same reason, I can't sew b) I don't have steady hands or much manual dexterity. Even threading a needle is difficult, so bead-work would be far too frustrating. c) I don't have talents for painting/drawing, nor any desire to paint/draw. Put it this way - when we paint, Mr. Japanfan prefers me not to wield a paintbrush. d) Weaving is most likely beyond my ability and I've no space for a loom e) It would be embarrassing to do paint-by-number at the age of 53 So what else can I do with my hands to keep occupied? Something that isn't too difficult but might be creative as well? I do like to cook and am doing more of that, but one can only chop so many vegetables and wrap so many filo pastries. . . Today a friend gave me a big strip of bubble wrap and I'm looking forward to popping all those bubbles, so I'm rather in need of some inspiration.
