Hobbies and crafts play an important part in our lives. In these turbulent times they bring a little sanity and peace of mind into our busy lives. They centre us and give us many hours of contentment and happiness. A good hobby gives us something to escape to in the midst of tension and turmoil. It isn’t possible to over-estimate the importance of a satisfying hobby. It can even sow the seeds of a future career. But mostly, a great hobby is something that we enjoy doing. It gives us something to look forward to and gives us happiness and peace of mind.
