Things to do while stuck at home

I'm 17, and it's half term but I'm spending most of my time on the settee cause my asthma's so bad- can't go to work at the moment either.

Usually I make little models out of clay, but yesterday I tried and everything was too dusty so I had to give up ):

Obviously I can't really leave my house, I'm sick of TV and everyone in my household will be out for most of the day.

Any ideas? Soooo bored!

I've just had 3 weeks of sofa surfing because of asthma and a little Disney game online called Ghosts of Mistwood saved my sanity! It is free, although you can pay out for things if you choose to.

How about wrapping a thin cotton scarf over your face while you make your models? Would this be enough to keep the dust out?

Depending on how your asthma react's to fine powder.

How about baking? I find as long as I go carefully and slowly. I can manage to get through the dry ingredient stage easily. Also if you use a mixture, you can just place a towel over the bowl (away from the moving parts) so you don't get a face full of flour.

How about other forms of arts and crafts? You could try making birthday cards or masks for kids or just decorating exercise books/folders?

Reading is great for me or if im not feeling up to reading i listen to stuff. I have various audio cds. Also have downloaded mark steel from his website marksteelinfo

Hope you feel better soon! What a rubbish way to spend half term. Why do we always get ill in the hols? Typical!

Reading is always top for me (Amazon is the instrument of the devil because I keep having to buy new books and even though I've now got a huge backlog I can't stop buying more), but if I'm feeling really rough it's the radio or audiobooks as they're easier to deal with.

Idiot internet / pc games are good when your brain has gone fuzzy.

ha ha ha that's what I find myself doing when my asthma is playing up. My kids tablet is in constant use during the night at the minute when I can't sleep.
