Aside the first two that you've mentioned. Airsofting is one of them. Cycling and hiking - when I get the chance and that normally includes the pups. Reading is another - with a dog on my feeties to keep me warm. I dont do much without my dogs lol

Photography is my main hobby, but I also like to read.

Also I study peoples handwriting which is very interesting.

I love to cook and my son is getting the bug too.

Since getting the pup of course we are spending lots of time outside.

Sounds like you are a busy lady! I wish i could paint. Drawing is most definately not my strong point
Also i think my OH wishes i could cook

I'm trying to get a bit better at photography, especially as OH has offered to buy me a really good lens for Christmas. Mostly practicing on the doggies at the moment!
I also like to sew, I've made a couple of doggy bandanas lately but I've made a mix of things - from bags to 'scoodies' (scarves with hoods, handy for winter dog walking!) to cheerleader costumes for Halloween
I used to be into drawing but I've not done much lately, probably very rusty. Need to get a faster computer so I can get back into digital drawing, my big drawing tablet is going to waste.
I like baking, but ingredients cost money, and baked goodies aren't so good for my waistline! I did make some cookies the other day and I will crack out the cake pans for birthdays and special occasions, but gone are the days where I'd bake most weeks (back then I had a house full of housemates willing to share the calories with me!)
Other than that, I'm a sucker for rubbish TV and have been quite addicted to the Supernatural series lately. OH has been drawn in too We're being a bit boring lately because we're saving for a house so no more shopping trips, evenings down the pub, etc - everything costs so much these days.

I like sewing too, not got a machine though and hand sewing takes a long time! I'm not good enough to make clothes or anything too technical. I have made some beds for my guinea pigs, they are very expensive in the shops and you cant toilet train piggies so need plenty so they can go in the washing machine!
Here's little wendy in hers...


We spend alot of time at home too as we are also saving to move house! We buy box sets of series or record things to watch. Not seen supernatural, will have to give that a try. We watch house and csi and dexter.

Thats a fab bed Grommit!!

Sadly no dog at present, but when I am not on Dogsey I tend to be with my horse, either riding or poo picking his field (more often than riding these days!). Or playing with my mouse and gerbil.

When I find time I enjoying going to the gym for a swim or reading/watching japanese anime.
