Why not just have a sit-down in a comfy chair, enjoy a glass of wine and watch a bit of Wallander on the telly?
Why not indeed?
I'll tell you why not: because so much MORE fun could be had by attempting to set up a beading-the-legs-on-chicken-brooches session on a lap-tray in front of the telly and then DROPPING the box of beads at just the WRONG moment (is there ever a right moment for dropping a selection box of beads?)
and then spending 3/4 of the programme on your knees with a dustpan and brush saying "it's OK, you carry on watching, I'll only be a minute....just got to get the ones under the armchair..."
and then spending an hour the next morning washing the dog hair and dust bunnies off the beads using a variety of sieving utensils.
