Gee caretaker that's an easy and a toughy at the same time.
Very much depends on what interests you personally. Some people make out a "bucket list" of things they'd like / want to do.
I'm certain that if you think back over your life you'll remember things that you wanted to do but never got around to them.

And don't let your arms limit you - they simply mean that you may take longer to do things ( Hmm, that seems to be something very common with us oldies wink.png :cheer: )
and/or doing things a different way.
I could quote you some VERY colourful examples of that as involves myself - thing is that YOU CAN DO IT !!!! smile.png

And of course you might decide to explore a totally new direction.
I'd suggest you start making out a LIST of "may-bees" and keep adding to them over coming weeks. There is no reason to limit it and you may decide to explore a mumber of new activities at the same time where you can "shuffle" between them as you feel inclined.

Maybe collecting hot blondes, wood turning, stamp collecting, beer brewing, the list goes on & is only limited by your imagination & how deep you decide to delve ( or you missus permits wink.png )

Well, lets hear how you've progressed over coming weeks & what others you may be adding to your new lists. smile.png

You might try restoring old things. It’s a nice feeling making something old or ‘tatty’ look good again. You can take your time, fit it in when you feel like it. I clean up / restore old handbags bought at charity shops and jumble sales.

Online games can be all consuming.
Have you tried online puzzles?
You can upload your own photos to make puzzles in most programms and make
the puzzle as hard or as easy as you wish smile.png.

Vienna gave the response that I was thinking of.
I'm what some might call a 'culture buff'. I enjoy studying the culture and customs of people in other countries. So, quite naturally I study different languages as well. I am currently studying Spanish and Portuguese, and doing quite well, (if I have to say so myself). You can study in your leisure time and practice anytime. You can practice on your family or friends. It's fun. I'm well on my way to becoming multilingual.

One i've been pondering is clock repair. I broke my grand father clock, buy trying to man handle the weights and pulled the chain out, then tried man handling it, trying to re thread the chain and did more damage to the working of the clock. Any way the price, the repairs cost $1500 for the grandfather Clock and $800 for a clock i just needed cleaned from the 1880's. took him about 10 days and that's a nice chunk of change for 10 days work.
I had to take 3 counties over to find someone that does it.

MY REPLY

Sorry but not very musical I do have a wooden kit of an Antar, the turning I have a lathe but can not hold the chisels anymore.
I think a list would be a good idea, yes first make a list.
Thanks for all your replies but feel free to add to my list.
