I took up Tai chi a few months ago - love it and it helps with relaxation.

I have a horse - I'm too heavy to ride him at the moment but hope to be back in the saddle soon.

I like reading too but seldom have the peace or time to do it.

My pets are my hobby and keep me busy. I've got 2 dogs, a westie called Angus and a shih tzu called Archie, 2 guinea pigs, 2 cockatiels, 3 corn snakes, 2 royal pythons, 1 western hognose snake, 1 crested gecko, 1 New Caledonian giant gecko, 2 harvest mice, 17 various tarantulas, 2 adult tailless whip scorpions and 15+ taillesswhip scorpion babies. Plus a feeder cockroach colony.

All of them are in my room, well apart from the dogs, though they generally sleep on my bed. I have a chronic illness and spend a lot of time in bed so love lying watching all the various enclosures and vivariums in my room. They are sometimes the only things that keep me going.

Hi all, I have a bedside book. Can't get to sleep without it. I knit and crotchet. I used to make cards etc but stopped it to do a degree part time. I've been known to paint in the past. I should just have written all things crafty
I love to cook and bake all things pudding and cake shaped but I guess I'll need to put a bit of a stop to that one.
Apart from that I'm a movie freak and a gamer.
Having said all that I'm lucky if I get an hour to myself each to actually do any of that

Thisle what a great idea having so many incredible animals to watch whilst you're in your room. I recently recovered from a couple of operations and was stuck in my bed for weeks. I ended up watching tv the majority of the time. I can imagine it would be so much nicer watching all those little lives.

Thistle whilst I don't like snakes I do like dogs and lizards I can imagine the relaxation side of having pets in your room for you to watch too.

We have a pet turtle (a small one - about the size of your hand), who is quite comical as she tries to rearrange her tank every now and then and loves to attack a big juicy prawn now and then. she's lovely to watch. Though she belongs to our eldest daughter who is 16 the turtle is in the lounge.

JaquiE I used to love reading before bed, but got out of the habit when I moved in with my now husband (we've been together 17 years so that was a long time ago). My daughter loves reading before bed and reminds me of myself at that age, she was up still reading at 2am the other night when I got up for a pee. lol

Baking is also a habit I had to give up on due to the increased calories it brings.. maybe when the girls are grown I can bake to give them a cake to take home - so no calories left in the house! lol

I love walking my dog and pottering in the garden. I've always got a book on the go, usually a crime/thriller, and love watching films and tv of the same genre. I'm half through a crosstitch but haven't done it for a while as I've been outside with the better weather. And though I love baking, it's something I've had to put a stop to because I was eating it all!
