Slabbing, last time I did that I trapped a few fingers!!!!! I too love doing rough stuff but as I said, I get stuck inside doing cleaning things, when I put my glasses on I see dust, cobwebs, finger prints, leave them off when I want to relax ;D

Reading, pottering in the garden... browsing the internet...preparing stuff for the occasional craft stall. If I'm particularly bogged down with work (proper work!) I find I watch a lot of mind-numbing TV in the evening.! It stops me thinking too much but saps my energy at the same time ... not good! I very much look forward to the long, light evenings so that I can get outside and do something constructive.

Free time.... not sure what that is!

Really in all honesty, the goats are techically my hobby. The bit I enjoy most though is showing, I love spending time with them at shows- although its hard work getting ready and packed etc to go to a show.

I enjoy pottering around in the garden, growing things, walking the dogs and would rather be outside than in. However, I do like some tv shows, any property shows especially Grand Designs, but also things like ER, Mash, Survivors (original series), Frasier, Angel. I like some computer games, but rarely take the time to play them. Oh and I really enjoy watching Formula 1- hope to get to a Grand Prix again this year.

Reading again I love, and can get through 2 or 3 books a day, but I just don't get the time. The OH believes I don't actually read books and just look at each page I read so quickly. I browse this forum, and F1 one, and also an Autograss racing forum. I also run and maintain a website and forum (which is hardly used) for the Scottish Goatkeepers Federation.

mountain biking, building custom motorbikes, foraging, fell running, climbing & generally doing anything that gives me a huge adreneline buzz to go with the buzz of growing me own stuff & farming a few sheep, pigs, chickens etc.
Luckly I work part time (now also getting paid more than when I was full time??!) so long weekend for me every week - huzzah!! ;D ;D
