Important to keep active as you get older

Have your say

In my old age I’m going to try to keep myself busy with my hobbies to keep my mind working.

I’m not a skilled person who has the right stuff to make models from wood, but to me this is the next best thing, cardboard. I am making a yacht.

I have already made a pedal car, the Beverley Hillbillies truck and Stephenson’s Rocket and H G Wells time machine. Of course my models don’t have moving parts, as I don’t have the skill. After the yacht, I am thinking of making a plane, a sea hurricane.

My other hobbies include cooking and I’ve just made an apple cake, also magic. At the moment I am doing two tricks, French drop and the back and front palming. My limit of tricks is six. And I am still juggling.
