Re: things to do with little brain

HI there, I also am doing a lot of sudoku, though I find my arm goes numb from being in one position for too long (on the affected side). I have also started sewing again, with little projects like trousers for my toddler granddaughter, and for a change, some crochet.

They are all easy-ish things that can be put down and picked up as the mood takes me.

Hi - during my treatment and operation last year I found Suduko to be a great brain exerciser and also enjoyed adult colouring books for helping to relax.

Likewise I wa bored but couldn’t concentrate on anything too much. I enjoyed reading the Miss Fortune series by Jana De Leon. Jigsaws too.

Hope you’re healing well Mx

Re: things to do with little brain

My sister was given a Pom Pom maker. She’s hooked! She’s even got an Instagram page for her creations it’s called Pomtittypom.
She’s not got cancer but it’s helped her cut down the fags!
I’ve been learning Spanish on a great free app called Duolingo. Es muy bien!
I hope you find something diverting.

things to do with little brain

Post-op I find I have enough brain to be bored, but not really enough to be able to do much. A friend sent me 'Paint with stickers' which is great! I have also been reading Nancy Drew and Mills and Boon.

Any other suggestions?
