    Nice one Lesley :thumbsup: Me and Vicki and Eric would love a motorhome to go around britain and beyond.I see what you mean with 7 whippets a bit of time there (w00t)

    Keep me in mind for a staff or walking stick,I think i'm gonna need one in the future! For sure.

    My OH is retired, and I now only work occasionally, so we are quite lucky. We enjoy caravan and narrowboat holidays (the dogs always come with us), and I am learning to play the piano. OH and I also play the concertina which we started about 4 years ago.

    My other interest is my marine fish. :wub: :wub:

    We love our caravan and all the better that we see friends when we go to it now, it great because we can take the dogs and they are used to it now so its just like normal for them, the whippets were the ones who set us off with the hobbies I was always looking for collars and I thought why dont I make some and Andrew started with the sticks because he got one from a game fair and thought I could make one better than that, he looks like the dog whisperer when hes out lol but the staff does work for keeping the pack in line as a guide and a steady for him(dont tell him I said that) :teehee:

    Lovely fish Sarah really pretty :))

    We also caravan, I make collars and coats for sighthounds and we also sail model yachts. Between us, we have 5 sailing boats and 1 motor boat. The largest sailing boat weighs in at about 45lbs!! We sail on a large lake and its so relaxing and peaceful.

    Juley do you have any photos of your model yachts? A real coincidence but earlier today OH and I were talking about remote controlled helicopters (he has one that he has never flown :- ) , and I happened to mention you having model boats (I think you put a photo of one a while ago if I remember correctly).

    really interesting topic :thumbsup:

    we do coursing most sundays with the dogs,

    my OH is into tech and gadgets, hes forever buying broken laptops, mobiles whatever and fixing them, i like baking and am very slowly learning pole dancing.

    like most else have said would love a caravan havnt had a holiday in a long time and caravaning would be ideal :)

    cant think off much else as most of the time is taken up with kids homework and school run/clubs lol

    oh and i dabble in photography :)

    Besides the whippets i have 21 Chinchillas and some Degu to clean

    and care for. I have 3 grandchildren who i like to spend time with.

     

    I am on the committee for a group of Adults with learning difficulties,

    we have our club meetings on Friday nights, we also have a fair few

    day trips and disco's and such in the evenings.

    There are also more formal things connected to it that take some time.

     

     

    Oh and Thursday's is my day, i meet up with my mates, we have a bit

    of lunch and then spend the afternoon/evening in a pub or two :lol:

    I work part time for now but in my spare time I do alot of walking with Penny and I also have my guinea pig and 4 ferrets. I also enjoy taking photos but wouldn't call myself a photographer. I love music, I play violin and piano and I also love listening to music I enjoy just sitting back and relaxing to one of my Sarah brightman CDs. During the cold winter nights me and my mum enjoy sitting up watching old movies, my favourites are the 1940s dramas but my dvd collection ranges from 1922-2010. Nothing very exciting lol.

    This is really interesting - finding out new things about eveyone :thumbsup:

    I enjoy photography and belong to a Camera Club. I also play violin in an orchestra and piano/organ in church occasionally. Governor at our local primary school and now also a trustee of Scruples Whippet Rescue. :) I also follow Cardiff City FC although I'm unable to travel down to their games very often as it's too far! :(
