Being a busy working parent doesn’t leave a lot of time of hobbies, but making time to relax is a must, and I have promised myself some more “me” time this year. Sometimes I just need some time to forget about everything going on around me.
Writing is probably my favourite hobby, and having this blog is a great way to distract myself when I need to.I am also a fan of trying out new crafts. I have dabbled in sewing and crochet recently, and am hoping to improve my skills in both those areas. The bulk of my time however is usually spent on the laptop or tablet which means that I can often be found doing an online activity. I am a fan of entering competitions, and have recently been lucky enough to win a couple of nice prizes. All of these hobbies take time and energy to complete, and sometimes I just need to not think when taking part in an activity, but at the same time I don’t want to just sit in front of the TV like a zombie.
Playing online bingo is something I have done for years and it doesn’t take a lot of my energy. I’ve learnt that it is something that I can choose to be focused on, or have it playing in the background whilst I am doing other things.Each month I allow myself a small amount of money that I can deposit should I wish to into a bingo account and once it’s gone, it’s gone! The great thing about playing bingo online as opposed to going to a bingo hall is that there are always great offers around for new players, and it seems that a new site will pop up almost weekly. This gives the customer like myself a great advantage to glean the best offers with bonuses.
I have been quite lucky in the past with some small wins, and have managed to treat the family to a few meals or day trips out which has been nice. Thankfully I am a disciplined person and I know that when I have spent my allocation then it’s time to close the browser and do something else.
Reading this, I have realised that I do in fact have quite a lot of hobbies, and it’s not wonder that I am always rushing around doing something or other.
What are your hobbies?
