In 2020 I’m answering a list of 52 journal questions. Read about it here.

How do you relax?
I don’t get much time to relax, but when I do I have a long list of things I like to do. Does that defeat the purpose of relaxing?

The things I think are fun to do when I want to relax include:

  • read (mostly cozies, police procedurals and fantasy)
  • play my clarinet (and occasionally the piano)
  • scrapbook
  • cross-stitch
  • crochet
  • sew
  • bushwalk
  • garden
  • play board games with family
  • do jigsaw puzzles
  • play mystery games or scrabble on my tablet
  • bake
  • visit art galleries
  • photography
  • catch up for a cuppa with friends

What do you like to do to relax?

    Oooo my whole summer is basically relaxing haha! I like to do many of the same things you do: read, cross stitch, crochet, knit, watch tv, edit photos, do my nails, lol

    • Ooh, envious of your summer. Our summer holidays are always quite crazy because of Christmas and New Year’s falling in them. Although this coming summer we have booked a holiday away for a week which hopefully will be able to go ahead.

  2. Bushwalk–now that conjures up pictures.

    • It’s funny, I guess it’s a word you don’t think about and assume everyone calls it the same thing. What do you call it – trekking?

  3. Relax? What’s that?
