I don’t watch a vast amount of TV these days (health permitting – more ill = more TV to break the boredom) so I’d like to think this list should be easy!
- Knit, crochet, sew, bead, … I could have listed these separately, but where’s the challenge in that?
- Listen to an audiobook (which you can, of course do at the same time as crafting)
- Garden. Even if it’s a dry plastic pot perched on a windy balcony with one barely-clinging-to-life geranium in it, it’s still gardening!
- Bird watching. Again, you can bird watch from practically anywhere and sometimes you get to see falcons nesting in city centres or geese flying over suburbia.
- Star-gazing. Although this is best undertaken in Autumn or Spring (longer nights, but not so cold you get frost-bite) and with minimal light pollution, even without optimal conditions you can still pick out the brightest stars and even a planet or two. My favourite are meteor storms!
- Listen to the radio. My personal choices are BBC Radio 5live (primarily a news and sports station), Radio 4 (spoken word for drama, documentaries and comedy) and 6Music (erm … music, really!)
- Play Facebook games. What? Don’t look at me like that. I’ve always been a gamer.
- Watch stuff online. Well, it’s not really TV, is it?
- If you are able, go for a walk. In the winter this can constitute making out onto the back step and in again for me, but I do like a nice wander/meander.
- Fire-gazing. You don’t need a fire, or even a candle, but sometimes your brain just needs to park up for a bit while you gaze of into the middle distance. To be honest, I’ve found myself doing this while I’m allegedly watching TV, so that’s why I suggested it!
Woah, that was tougher than I thought! Sorry for the lack of photos this week but I finished this list at 00:20 on Tuesday. Oops! 😀
