  1. Well today is Armed Forces day here in the UK,:notworthy::notworthy:. I know some view it as 'just' a job, but all the same to me and many others I hope it is something worth celebrating.:jiggy: Though the main parade is in Edinburgh, it is to some extent being celebrated all over the UK, or rather it should be,:mad:. Out of ten newspaper headlines I saw this morning TWO had a major/minor headline outlining the fact. The rest were either about Andy Murray,:SLEEP:, or Ed Milliband admitting that Labour need to shape up. Oh well, just another day in Paradise,:mad: Just as a note, where I live there is not ONE parade or any kind of celebration, I guess the council see it as a waste of time and one of those things that because of the cuts have to go by the wayside. The Status Quo comes to mind. Cheers Tony.
  2. I imagine we all have things that we love doing, and I only put this thread up because I was listening to the radio this morning and they were discussing the fact that a very rare Robin was in the British Isles, 'Birders' from all over the UK were travelling many hundreds of miles to see this tiny bird, some took holiday from work, some just skipped a day, and some are camping out in all weathers to see this once in a life time sight. Now to me some of the people interviewed were obsessed by this type of hobby, it had fore all intents and purposes become their 'life', I can understand this to a degree because I am fairly obsessive about fishing, not in the UK, but overseas. I have and will continue I guess to travel (when finances allow) to the ends of the world to catch a certain species of fish. My poor second wife, :wubclub: was dragged from pillar to post at one time, often camping in the roughest areas, sleeping rough, in the middle of nowhere just to catch a Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, all kinds off species. Don't get me wrong she did enjoy it, and we also did loads of things she loved as well, but each and every holiday whilst sight seeing etc, would often see me tramp miles upon miles to catch a fish, it was and is an obsession, and in no small way did damage our relationship to a very small degree, because as she said, 'I want roots now', and fair play to her,:notworthy::wubclub:. I would like to point out that I was fortunate enough to be a self employed driving instructor at the time, so I would work absolutely obscene hours to allow us to take a break every two or three months, nothing flash, normally camping and the like, but it did allow me a certain degree of 'freedom' which I appreciate many others didn't or don't have. But does your hobby at times dictate your life. You could also say in the same breath seeing as how this is an Australian forum, has your desire to get out there affected you to such an extent that it dictates your life, has it become a mindset that is impossible to shake. So come on, train spotters, fishos, aircraft spotters, those on the Australian journey, has anyone seen themselves change in chasing a hobby or dream and it has manifested itself into an 'obsession. Note to Bob. If you put ONE picture up of a fish I swear I will close this thread down,:wubclub::biglaugh:. Cheers Tony.:wink:
  3. Hi all, Just curious what your hobbies are now, and what you think you will take up when you eventually get out to OZ. I currently spend a lot of time cycling, but will certainly hope to take up Surfing!! I would also like to become a keen bbq-ist!

    Dental Tech hobby & a job

    would you chose it as a job to enter oz ?

    Sugarpaste hobby

    Hi This might seem a daft question (with an obvious answer I'm sure!) but can anyone tell me if you are able to take opened tubs of food colouring paste and powder? My hobby is sugarcraft so I have stacks of colours that I have collected the collection has cost me a fair bit so i don't want to give them up if I don't have to. thanks Michelle
