See subject.

I have several, my main one is reading, which I have done for many years, another is cooking, I have always enjoyed cooking my own meals. My latest hobby is electronics, I finally went out and looked at the prices of setting up a basic electronics workshop. Anyway, I now made an electronics workshop and have a doorbell to trial the equipment, I still need to buy a switch though, I had to use a 20 cent coin to check that the circuit worked.

What's your hobby?

Collecting die cast Routemasters. I have about 50 of them, so I had to stop buying them, because I don't have enough room, for any more.

For me I'd probably say it's drawing. :) A lot of people think I'm really good at it, and I think it's really fun to do! :D

Collecting DVDs. At the moment, I have 17 DVDs of live-action movies, and I'm trying to think of more to add to my collection. I used to have around 50 anime DVDs, but I sold most of them after I quit obsessing over it.

Currently I have been baking yeast bread. I've taken it a step further and have been learning how hydration, salt, yeast, fats, and sugars in various amounts affect the texture and crumb of the finished product. I've only been baking with white "bread" flour, but eventually I'll move on to low gluten like spelt or rye.

Music is my profession, but I play many instruments as a hobby. Photography is another hobby of mine.
