Thing #1: Complete a crossword

Earlier this year, I fell ill and had to take a day off work (shocker).  It is a weirdly exhilarating  feeling to see a full day of nothingness stretch out before you, even when you are under the weather.  I spent my free time drinking  lots of fluids and doing crosswords online.  That is the badassery that is my life.

I understand that crosswords are the dinosaurs of online pastimes- doomed for extinction- but I urge you, the next time you’re faced with an expanse of free time, ease up on the facebook thing (it’s not real life) and do a crossword instead.  Good clean fun.  Your Mother would approve of my advice.  She’d nod her head in quiet understanding.

€5 has been donated to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland for the completion of this ‘thing’- in loving memory of my Granny, the crossword queen.  Click here if you would like to donate online.

Really really good advice. You're absolutely correct - FB is not real life and it always leaves me feeling super depressed

crosswords make me feel dumb at times...but maybe if i did them more often, they wouldn't!

I do the crossword puzzle in my newspaper nearly every day. People always look funny in the tram.... ;)
I think it's great, that for every done crossword puzzel the Alzheimer Society gets a donation!

I used to do crosswords with my gran but I haven't attempted one in years - probably, I'm ashamed to say, because I'm afraid I won't be able to finish it xo

Thanks Ashley, I'm in the business of making up words.

And I needed a lo-ot of practice before I could finish one Emma!
