I like walking but am unable to go far now without a walking frame. If the weather is favourable then I hop onto my mobility scooter and go for a ride but as winter is fast approaching the scooter will spend more time in the shed than out on the road.
I have no garden to potter about in so during wet weather I have just Bob my budgie for company. I have neighbours but this Covid thing is keeping them well clear.
Never mind I,m sure there are many more far worse off than I am so I have nothing to grumble about.
Hi Ben I am sorry you are bored I get bored very quickly too so I know how you feel but I do have a garden and can still walk quite a long way so take the dog and Mr M out everyday .have you got Netflix ? There are some good filmes ( and lots of crappy ones ) on some are so awful they are funny .like The crown i wished you lived near here you would be very welcome to potter in my garden blooming thing looks a sight i do a little bit if the weather holds
But today only managed one flower pot stuffed some bulbs in before retreating to the house .
Why not get another budgie they fine to watch and it would be company for Bob when you go out .
You could sort out your old photos ( although this can be depressing ) i keep meaning to do that too!
There are those colouring books for grownups that look quite interesting .I draw myself when I can get my rear into gear but if I didnít those books would be something I would like to do they are said to be very good for stress . Have you considered one of those tops for your mobility scooter so that you are protected from the weather and can still use it in winter ? Do you have mate to call preferably a lady we ladies love talking !
Model making ? model planes maybe ? i used to love doing models of soldiers but hang on i remember that was problematic. The glue tube was always drying shut - yes now I remember why my models were always half finished .
I will try and thing of something else .
Mean time come on here more
