Very Bored

Although i have Ataxia for many years i was still able to get about outside and keep busy by attending things like college courses. Sadly over the last couple of years my mobility has declined and after a recent knee operation i am largely confined to home at the moment. And i am so bored with watching TV and reading books.

So any recommendations on things to do to help with the boredom ?
