Hobbies and Pastimes

I was reflecting on the fact that I do have a fair amount of hobbies and pastimes. I collect Holly Hobbie stuff, I like to write, I sew, I knit, I crochet (but nothing that requires me to crochet circles - I can't do circles),I have developed a liking for patchwork, I like to garden, I collect Jackie annuals and magazines from the 60s, 70s and early 80s, I like to cross fact a whole load of hobbies that make me sound like a mad old pensioner. Yet conversely I have a very technical job, involving telecomms and networking and internet related things and all kinds of weird and wonderful goings on. Therefore I am a paradox.Or is it quixotic? Or a paradigm? I think I will be all three....
And what do YOU do in your spare time?

Shallow? Moi?

My first real post. I have been reading a few other diaries on here ( I'm not keen on the word "blog" for some reason) and I have decided I am shallow. Pain? Troubles? Angst? Black backgrounds to your web page? Cheer up a bit. I get cross and depressed along with everyone else, but then I realise I am typing this on a BRAND NEW LAPTOP and I am happy again. Consumerist, socialist uber-hippy - that's me. :-)

Another hello

Well, I am now experimenting with this whole "blogging" thing, solely with the vain intention that people will want to respond LIVE to my ramblings. Lets see what happens then, shall we?

A new diary?
