    Cooking has started to become a hobby, once a month I am trying to cook something new, mostly it's been baking but it's been good to go through the cookbooks and look at what I want to make next. Sometimes it depends on if there's any surplus veg at mums, like with the courgette and lemon loaf and the beetroot brownies, other times it can just be something I fancy making.

    I really like that idea, to get out of your comfort zone when it comes to cooking. Just do something extra, but also new .. it is a great way to not just learn or tweak an existing skill. But you might just surprise yourself!

    There's a new craft shop opened and they're open late tonight so I might have to go visit it.

    That sounds nice, don't forget to keep proper distance and to wear a mask :) Let us know if you found some fun things at the shop.

    I was rather underwhelmed by it, got a couple of bits for the Christmas shoebox, but nothing for me.

    @Nix how's the jigsaw hobby coming along? :p

    Still, a few things! It was fun to try at least ? :)

    My new hobby is just to find some healthy mindset and move on with life, trying to be there for 'me'. It's tough! But it will open up space for me to get things in order and then make room for hobbies to be more fun again.

    Baby steps right?

    Is collecting cookbooks a hobby, as I seem to have quite a collection now, especially as they're giving them away free! I picked up a Doctor Who one the other day, I've flicked through it and there's nothing I would make, but still a Doctor Who cookbook!

    I am doing "okay" with calligraphy, if I am motivated and am given the time. I no longer have a handwriting, computers have ruined that haha
