Sometimes being a bit obsessive is a nuisance: can’t go to bed with a messy house, can’t have an untidy office, and when I get into something I can’t let it go. It also has its good side. If I start something, I finish it as I can’t let it do until it’s done. Quilts, projects, study, DIY or learning something interests me and I can concentrate on it solely until I see it through.
My current obsession is learning French. Normally, I can get by with tourist French but I want to learn properly. I found this and a few other French books in charity shops along the way. If your teenagers have left school and have finished with revision books then drop them into a charity shop, not only will other students benefit but oldies like me who want to learn something for a bit of fun will find them too.
So, I learn sat on my bed, with a dog by my side and study four pages a day.
It keeps me busy whilst costing very little and it’s definitely fun learning something new.
Over to you, have any of you got a hobby that you supplement with cheap charity shop additions?
