Hobbies? I always say that all those who go to a gym dont work hard enough !! .

My personal hobbies are..if you can call them hobbies.

Rebuilding a 1936 vintage car. A long term project due to divorce ,kids and grandkids.
Attending to my 3 cats needs. (constant)
Looking after a large 4 bed house plus gardening on a large garden..
Collecting coins.
A decent long haul holiday every year plus city breaks.
I service and maintain my own cars.
I go out on the town at least once a week until the early hours and eat out at least once.
I even built my own conservatory in 9 days as a retirement gift to myself just to see if I could do it.(and saved £10,000.)

Much of my time however is filled like most peoples lives with an increasing amount of paperwork created mainly by governments rules regulations and any other crap they can think of. Has anyone else noticed that many things are being transferred to people rather than companies. Like taxing your car online reading your own electric meters etc.

Before I get attacked !! My life after divorce was abysmal. No money. Just had a heart attack. No social life. The recession belted me hard. I rebuilt and got back to the position I was during marriage. I then retired but I did all my hobbies listed above plus ran a business. Im busier now than Ive ever been and the gym is the last thing on my mind !!

I am in my 20s, but I took up Knitting. I always thought it was an old lady thing, but well I love it. I only know how to make scarves now, as I just started, but hey, those will be my Christmas gifts to everyone!

My son and I snowboard together. I've also really gotten into cycling as I find it so cathartic. Plus, when my marriage failed I lost weight, then piled it all back on + even more (got to 16 stone). So a balance of cycling and running is a good distraction and has helped me lose a load of weight too
