I like to play the spam oboe once in a while too...!

Seriously, I don't have hobbies anymore. I'm either recovering from work or gearing myself up for the next stint. I do like cooking and eating though, but need to stay away from the kitchen until my waistline diminishes.

I'm especially looking for the Lofty Peaks Recipe Book, if anyone has one kicking around ( Lofty Peaks was/is the own brand flour from the Scottish Co-op). I want to find the recipe for Florence Cake ( an old family favourite), and I know this book has it!

Oooh, yes, me too - LOVE old cookbooks. My mum has this book from the '50s that has recipes for 'mock cream' (you force milk and butter together), and has recommendations for the perfect bridge party - lots of finger rolls and ghastly things in aspic. I'll keep an eye out for the Lofty Peaks recipe book in second-hand book stores.

I used to paint, but my hands are too bad now to( cant grip a paintbrush well), so I do digital art now, I love arts and crafts, and sculpt in the summer when my hands are a bit better.
Of course I love to cook too, I am not italian, but I love the big family kitchen ( sadly haven't got one) Idea, with something always bubbling on the stove for people when they drop by.

I have two original Mrs Beaton's books - one was my grandmothers (1930s) and the other was my mothers (1960s). They make a fascinating read, although the recipes are quite scary!!

Some of these old dishes are actually very tasty. Mutton is a great example.

I have a fascinating cookbook from the seventies .... Business Womans Cookbook by Elizabeth Craig.
It contains a chapter called 'Handy Hints for the Busy Bee' and gives all sorts of wonderful time saving techniques which enable the working woman to serve a nice cooked breakfast to her husband before he and she go off to work .....

.... Like lay out the breakfast table the night before and remove the rind from the bacon rashers, prick the sausages and slice the black pudding ....... then she only has to slave for an hour or so with breakfast and with packing a nutritious home made lunch for the old fella prior to her doing a full days work and then coming home to prepare a nice wholesome meal with home made pudding for her wonderful husband. It's full of recipes that take HOURS of prep.

It tires me out just READING it ...... and the funniest part is that at weekends, whilst she's off ... 'OH HAPPY DAY'... the woman can devote much MORE time to cooking endless hot dinners for this geezer .... :eek: :eek:

I find it hard to comprehend that any woman working full time could keep that up for more than a day! :chin:

I have had many hobbies, stamp collecting when I was in my early teens but I don't know what happened to my collection.

I have played chess on and off for many years, I occasionally play chess on Vista and on lever 3 my current winnings are about 45%.

The sport I was most committed to was dinghy sailing, I was a member of a club for 10 years and we used to race about twice a week, sometimes at major events in the lake district, my last boat was an Olympic class 470, it was great fun but I couldn't master it.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever

oddquine! :wave: welcome back! :yippee: :yippee: really great to see you again. :) :elephant:

I've been doing my family tree for over12 years now - from way back when nothing was online and it all had to be done from first hand research through archives. Its much easier now - although the brick walls are still as frustrating whichever way you do the research! ( I have a line from Thurso)

Chess - I play to a fairly high club standard. Was school champion. Won best of age group prize in a tournament when I was about 14. Played at university. Now play occasionally on Facebook, and Yahoo once in a while but I don't like going there 'cos of all the cheats

Stamp collecting - got a stamp album for my 8th birthday, that was how it started. Got quite a nice but modest collection. Not avid now, but I always make sure I keep any new stamps I receive. Sadly a lot of mail are franked now with those stupid boring printed sticky labels. It's going to be the death of casual stamp-collecting I fear.

Music - I play piano to a competent fairly high standard. Started when i was about 8.

I have a few other hobbies too but that's enough for now :)

You have some very upper class hobbies.....Can i guess you went to a private school?
