I keep myself busy by volunteering here on this site and my mind active by reading if I can and learning new things online

    I work as a childcare provider 3 days a week. When I am not at work, I am playing with the children or teaching them.
    I also enjoy reading at night too. I find puzzle books are great for helping my brain work.

    I don't do anything lol. Watch TV, play computer games, go on the internet and take my dog out.

    I am a member  of a few sites eg Facebook, P & O Cruising, Accessible Holiday Group, which |I help run, and watch Netflix. Get out when I can, but not much.

    I love reading, and at this time of year some gardening and a couple of times a week go out shopping, I do my best to help the OH with the cleaning. All of this depends how I'm feeling but I try to achieve something everyday.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Oh and I do gardening. We help out on a community allotment. We also organise local community fundraising events to support charities and raise awareness.

    To keep my mind active I am studying Law which keeps me extremely busy as there is so much reading to do on subjects, as well as that I have animals that will come and lay on my work or books if they want my attention, oh and of course the housework which due to disability now takes me so long it can take up my day.

    @zebedee is this accredited course or are just learning?, if it is for a qualification how did you go about applying for this. I'm going mad with boredom stuck ar home and would love to gain some knowledge. Thanks.

    These are some great suggestions :)

    @nikkif, I believe @zebedee is studying via the open university.
