Hobbies that keep me busy

Have your say

Well it’s 2017 and I’m back into my routine of cooking after the Christmas holidays. I’ve made an orange and raisin loaf, crusty white loaf, and a Welsh rarebit.

I’m glad to say I’m also doing my magic, ventriloquism and juggling.

My main hobby that I love is magic, with my tricks of silk from handkerchief, back and front palming with ten playing cards.

I’ve got two new tricks to also practice on. One is a coin trick, the French drop and the other is the torn and restored newspaper.

I am not going to do that one yet. I have just written to a library for information about how to do that trick.

I’m waiting for a reply from the library.

There’s another hobby that I will pick up soon and that is drawing. All to keep me on my toes in my old age.

I’ve just about finished a model of Stephenson’s rocket by using a Bisto gravy box.

Whatever I’m making I like to work with cardboard, and funnily enough I also like to work with cream paper.
