A bit of background,I'm being made redundant from the Armed Forces. There's nothing job wise I can or need to learn. So I'd like to do something just simply for me.
WWYD for a fun course if you could?

Think I would do a horticulture/design course or a paper making/ book no ding course.

Book binding, not a no ding course...

I'm doing a stain glass window course soon. I have always fancied doing it and I saw it advertised at our local craft school recently so booked straight on. Lord knows what my effort will look like as I am not the slightest bit artistic!

Making stained glass windows or glass blowing.

Ceramics. I'd love to learn how to throw a pot

Oh how I wish there were a ding course grin

I'm really not very artistic but do love making things, perhaps some thing feel good.

Something theraputic/crafty. If you were good it could become a future side line.

ICANSEETHESUN I do apologies but you just made me LOL then....I think you mean psychology not physiology.

And the course I would do would be a personal training course or nutritionist.

Creative writing...used to love it when I was younger.

Our local horticultural college did a course in how to use a chain saw which sounded great. But none of my mates would go with me so I am doing Cornish Pasties instead!!

Glass slumping.

Or something anthropological... Did a module of this at uni and it was fascinating.

Astronomy for me. Loved it as a kid (had my own telescope) and been looking wistfully at courses.
