Does Anyone Have Non- Homemaker Type Hobbies?

Post  alec eiffel on Sat Aug 20, 2011 7:06 pm

Does anyone have any hobbies or interests that aren't to do with cooking, craft and housey stuff?
Just being nosey and seeing "beyond the housewife".

I like weight training, watching rugby league and ski jumping, mid century modern architecture, walking and coffee!

I do an adult tap class Smile I did ballet and tap for nearly 10 years when I was a child and re-discovered my love of dance over a year ago.
As for other hobbies.....well aside from learning to sew and craft type stuff I don't tend to have much time for anything else Embarassed

My hobbies are self improvement.......... I love to do on line courses on anything and everything, I love to keep up to date with computer courses and any other courses that take my fancy or interests me at the time.

Hi
Well apart form knitting and crafts, which are homemaker type hobbies, I am a dedicated family historian. Have researched both mine, and my husbands family tree :-) I enjoy church and love reading.

oh wow, I tried to search my family tree but stopped as it caused an argument with my Aunty.

The only Lily C I could find (my grandma) was born in different place to what her daughter (my aunty) thought. I was in so much trouble for trying to make up lies about my grandma.

I would never do that, it was just what I found out and didn't have any other finds to cancel it out. So 1) my aunty never spoke to me again and 2) I feel like I can't ever get to the truth further up the line because of this doubt. I have vowed never to do it again and that makes me quite sad.

It was very exciting while I was doing it though.

Aww frugaliciousness, that's sad :-( Some people can be over sensitive. I have to be careful what I say to mum, she can get a bit touchy when relatives are brought up. My gran had two children outside wedlock, before mum was born. THe children were adopted. Mum wouldn't want me to research them, not while she's still living anyway, so I appreciate that, and haven't looked in a big way into their births etc. Another reletive did, and mum asked him not to include the two previous children on his tree.

I love reading and going for walks with OH, kids and dogs. We are going to find out more about foraging as we love finding rasps and brambles Embarassed thats all we know for sure
I have discovered a love of exercise as well at the ripe old age of 39!
I do enjoy driving as well, not sure you can call it a hobby, but I love just going out in my car music on singing away...dont do it that much now cos of the price of fuel but it is one thing gauranteed to make me smile (love my car old banger that it is haha)

I find most of my time taken up with playing tennis. If you join a private club (not one of those run for profit) it works out as a cheap hobby and many clubs run lessons for groups of all standards during the day.

It has been a great way for me to make friends and now forms almost all of my social life

When I'm not fighting and losing against BD I love running, the gym, yoga, scuba diving and skiing. Also looking into starting a Zumba class when I get back - anyone tried it? Do you feel like an idiot?

I'm researching the family tree, do computer/web design stuff, enjoy card making, reading and music. Otherwise, everything else is homemaking related.

hi dolly
thats what we want to do when OH retires (another 25 years...so not long!)
buy a camper and just go when ever and where ever we feel like.
we have had two towing vans and now have a static on a beautiful site but love camping as well we have two different tents depending on who is all coming with us. We have never had a holiday staying in a hotel ever, just realised that, like to come and go as it suits us

I'm not a fan of staying in hotels. I think it's because I worked in the for such a long time I can never relax, I'm always thinking "they want me to bo out and about so they can get on with things". Not that we go away on holiday. We've toyed with the idea of getting a camper when we don't have rabbits and can get away but that all seems very far away so who knows.

I always wanted a camper van. A while ago I went past one with my daughter & said the usual, ooh I'd love one of them.
She gently pointed out that as an almost agoraphobic, who drives about 2000 enforced miles a year, because I'm now also scared of driving, (boring) it wouldn't be much fun. Then promptly wet herself laughing.
If only I had a drive I could buy a camper van & go on holiday, without leaving the confines of my home.

Gosh that could be worrying.
My Great Uncle & Aunt used to take their caravan over to France, he was well in his 70's maybe even his 80's & they were still going over for the summer. He'd given up driving here by then. Their first stop was always to a vineyard to stock up, unfortunately that meant they often got no further than the nearest lay by for a week or so until they ran out, then they'd drive on a bit further & find another vineyard.
Despite spending several months a year in France, I don't think they ever got very far.
