    Most of us at some point start a "hobby" - so whether you like DIY or painting or reading just list it here (ideally with a photo) as it's nice to share something about ourselves with each other :) - it will be fun! If you don't have a photo don't worry - just tell us about it. To kick it off here's my latest hobby.

    MY HOBBY:
    I decided last year that I would take up painting during my holidays while at my apartment in Spain. I've never really painted in the past but even so I decided to GO BIG as it might be my first and only attempt to paint. I'm using Acrylics.

    It's work in progress and when I go back out again at Christmas I'll do a bit more. It's quite therapeutic but slow going!

    So...tell me about your hobby :-D xx

    @Welshman1952 - great photos - love the picture of Burnham on Sea - a great place to live :)
    @ellagy - thank you so much - I loved to draw as a child but always used to spoil drawings when I tried to paint them afterwards but I decided to have another go 35 years later and it's fun! :-D

    Not so much a hobby, more a part of life. While there is food to be had I'll go after it and get some exercise. Fishing, mushrooming, foraging is all fun. This was the other night. Two meals there, easy.


    (PS I've had to crop this iphone photo so much because this site couldn't handle 1.2MB!)

    My hobby is singing and rapping mainly. I am a big fan of Mac Miller and Eminem. I like to collect room posters of different big rappers to get motivated. I also like to play games in my free time.

    Photography's my thing... Especially architecture/street photography and cats of all sizes. Preferred weekend activities will basically be visiting a museum, zoo or a cat café. Some cafe's have used my pics on their websites, social media or flyers, so I get to feel useful to boot. Yay! The pic of me shows what I usually look like: one camera bag, two camera straps with camera's hanging off of me. (This was in the Efteling amusement park, hence the sitting on a toadstool. Zoo was Blijdorp, Rotterdam NL, the cat is Ruby in katzencafe Milou, Aachen DE). P9150410a.jpg FB_IMG_1600319875505.jpg WhatsApp%20Image%202020-09-12%20at%2009.13.03%20(23).jpg

    Drawing is my hobbie! It's been a journey learning digital art!
    I also made a patchwork quilt over lockdown!
    Tried my hand at making clay skull and I'm currently turning a doll house into a fire station for my nephew!
