Well I must say that things have gotten a whole lot better on the gifting front for some of my brood of busy teen age grand children. That annual nightmare – twice a year when you think that each has a birthday as well as Christmas . . . . I have discovered that each one does have a good, busy hobby. A couple do very arty things – getting involved with local art groups, another helps at a local theatre am-dram group. This not only involves much drama in it’s purest form, but there’s the opportunity to get involved with the scenery painting. Whooh, now that’s a massive undertaking for anyone, let alone a teenager. But in fact this sort of challenge brings out the very best in them. I help them with their art supplies for their home hobbies. This in turn fires their get up and go for community based projects – win win all round!
