A 32-YEAR-OLD woman has coloured in a book of pictures, then had a moment of clarity and burned it.
Mother-of-one Nikki Hollis became a big fan of ‘adult colouring’ books after her divorce.
She said: “Over the last year I’ve coloured in literally thousands of highly detailed wildlife illustrations.
“I’ve got all the books from Rainforest Wonderland and Undersea Realm to Forest of the Relaxing Voles. Even Delightful Swirly Patterns, which as the name suggests is just swirly patterns.”
However after Hollis spent the morning colouring a drawing of an owl in various shades of mauve, she realised it was a total fucking waste of time.
“I took the owl picture, and all my other colouring in, and I calmly tore it up. Then I cleared an area of lawn, made a heap of shredded paper and poured barbecue fluid all over it.
“I could see many colours in the flames. The colours of a new life.”
She added: “Then the Amazon delivery man came with my new colouring in books, including Unicorn Island II: Land of Whimsy which looks really good.”
