    The little one is old enough now that I am able to make time for my hobbies again. I have lots of homebody hobbies which works well as DH has lots of going out hobbies. Plus I now have a dedicated 'she shed' in our new home for all my pursuits.

    Sewing (quilts, appliqué, clothes, bags, cushions), knitting (rectangles only lol), baking, cake decorating, photography, painting, gardening - veggies, bulbs and general pruning etc (even put flowers into a flower show this year!), reading articles/researching, house reno (planning, researching and doing) and yoga.

    It's hard when the kids are under 3 though. I found with both of mine it was mostly just baking and the occasional bit of knitting or sewing while they were little.

    Things I currently do: reading, sewing, cooking, renovating, camping.

    Things I miss that I want to get back to cycling, exercise in general, volunteering, further study, travel (or at least planning).

    There are also some great service groups out there that would love your spare time (meals on wheels, rotary, kids activity groups etc).

    I'm also a member of Toastmasters. Great for self esteem and learning new things. Most clubs are pretty social and it is such a supportive group.

    I'm a bit the same too. I do study interior decoration and love watching decorating renovating and building shows and talking about it but those are hardly hobbies.

    Can you maybe look at 'types' of hobbies first to narrow it down.

    I'm thinking like:

    Team Sport

    Individual fitness

    Adventure sports (thinking more hiking, kayaking

    Art and Craft

    Writing / blogging

    Studying something

    Gaming

    My hobbies are

    Travel (travel a lot overseas every year) and I also write a travel blog

    Reading. Been a huge reader since I was in primary school and read every night before bed.

    Going to collectible and rare stuff auctions in case a cool item turns up for the collection!

    I feel the same when people ask me what my hobbies are! I say, I don't have any but what else do I do with my spare time? I guess my hobbies come and go and depends on what's happening in my life but generally the consistency things are decorating and some gardening. I do read when I can or listen to podcasts. Very patchy though so I can understand the difficulty in categorising or defining what a hobby is!

    I've just started back at karate after taking about 10 years off. I was a 1st kyu brown belt when I stopped, but I've started with a brand new school and starting from scratch. I've done 4 lessons so far and they want me to grade this weekend and sensei has mentioned double gradings in the future, so it's all a bit exciting.
