    Default Hobbies

    I need to get myself a hobby. I'm not crafty or creative so find sewing etc a bit out of my realms.

    I'm a bit restricted with physical activity due to some injuries which drives me nuts and make me nervous to join a gym in case I can't really do it

    I enjoy colouring but have arthritis in my wrist so can't always do it.

    What do other people do? Doesn't have to be in a group, can be at home - just something to do in the evenings that isn't watch the TV!

    Drink wine and eat cheese?

    Sorry I will be serious now. I have lost all hobbies since kids. Do you enjoy cooking/baking? Gardening?

    Regarding the exercise - not sure what injuries you have but maybe see a physio/PT and they should help you out with exercises. I used to go to the gym and noone pays attention to anyone else in my experience.

    I am the same as Twinklify. I've lost all my hobbies since kids but I did begin to enjoy baking and such. I started to have a go at making cakes and desserts (and found out I'm not as bad as I thought). I also took up slow cooking and started to experiment with what can be done with those too. It's not much but it's been practical and something I could fit in with parenting young children.

    Default Hobbies

    Reading
    Sudoku or other puzzle games
    Gardening
    Cooking
    Painting your nails
    Meditating

    Like the others I have no hobbies these days. I do enjoy a good book or super sudoku but have zero concentration span. I'm not into baking (too much cleaning up!) and I'm not creative at all.

    My current hobby is surviving the day with my sanity intact. And I do that with wine and cheese too lol

    I have zero concentration too, I want to do things but by 8pm once the kids are in bed my brain is mush!!

    I'm not a baker despite my best efforts much to the disgust of my kids.

    What do people do in the evenings? That's when I feel the most at a loss, I'm sick of tv but don't want to get stuck into the computer as I'm a bit of an insomniac so need to do things that are relaxing not brain engaging.
