Cross-stitching crazy Apr 3, 2009

Sleeping is definitely a good hobby... but mine are my cat Fluffy and cross-stitching (see photos on http://picasaweb.google.fr/Cilou1967).

Bike, big one... Apr 3, 2009

...I do love riding my BMW, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends, in the countryside.
Fresh air in the face, beautiful landscapes, sensation of freedom and control on the machine... you know, all that.

To Lucia: what's birthwatching?

My hobbies include among other things reading, sport, singing and cooking.
I also have a couple of voluntary activities on the internet, and I sometimes organise concerts for a foreign choir, which is a hard-work "hobby".

In no particular order... Apr 3, 2009

Not in any particular order: cycling, hiking, gym, walking.

Cooking, although I've been semi-banned from the kitchen after the Mrs and kids noticed recently how many kilos they've gained from eating my dishes.

Reading, even though I don't as much as I used to because my eyes are sore after a day in front of the screen.

Does watching documentaries (any kind) count as a hobby?

Haha, Juan, you made me jump! Apr 3, 2009

I think you're reading more quickly than usual today! I certainly wouldn't like to watch children being born... I even look away when I get an injection.

We go out with a group of people to spot birds in different parts of the country. Some folks take wonderful photos, I'm lousy. It's also a great way to be out in nature and visit different places. Somewhat of a slower pace than your hobby (although I couldn't see your son's video, apparently not available for my country).

Christina: I find cooking very relaxing and I enjoy trying new recipes, particularly for vegetables. But somehow the feeling is a bit different when all the family is hungry and I'm trying to finish a translation! Peruvian cuisine is famous, I bet your bakery is wonderful

All apart from drawing/painting! Apr 3, 2009

I have plenty of hobbies, but not much time to do them at the moment, due to work and family comittments. Good thing I love my family and work so much!

It is ironic that the things I most like doing are the things I spend the least time doing at the moment. I spend a lot of time doing the washing, ironing, tidying up etc, but they are NOT hobbies!

I suppose that'smpart of the joy of being a grown up!

a mixture of the above Apr 3, 2009

reading, listening to music, watching films... sorry, no sports, although I should.
It's hard for me to consider sleeping a hobby. I need to sleep, recharge batteries, it's inevitable.

Virtually all of them Apr 3, 2009

Collecting fossils, coins and stamps were childhood pursuits which are difficult to shake of even now. Patchwork, choral singing, hiking, cooking, swimming, birds, nosing around small villages, crosswords, etc etc. Of course, with two small children, I can now forget most of that! But I dream of having time to return to some of these. In the meantime I have to curb their urges to start collections of virtually everything!

Not at all surprised that not only do Prozians cover a wide range of hobbies, but that we tend to have quite a few of them - that squares with the thirst to collect knowledge which I think is probably one of our common denominators.

reading for sure, but never have enough time.
Movies, tv.
Running, cycling (the latter only in spring and summer), gym.
