One day, in late 2016, Michelle decided that she wanted to have a go at watercolour painting. Her lack of artistic talent up to this time was fairly well known, so she only told her husband – because he lived with her! – until she’d had a go and decided she was doing okay. She found ways around the limitations of her fatigue and arm weakness by mainly painting in the morning and painting small things so she didn’t have to move her arm much!

When there’s time, painting is a great stress relief, no matter the outcome.
