Geeks and Hobbies.
My hobbies are a mixture of uber geek and not so geeky.
Sea Fishing, Shooting, Remote control Planes and Helis (with youtube vids), computer games, Dog walking and training, kids.
Mainly the planes and learning to avoid the ground with helicopters at the moment. Though the guns come a close second.
So what do you guys do to let off steam, and yes certain IT equipment has made a brief last appearance at the business end of a .45 BP pistol before you ask.
Mine are as follows -
- Car Mechanics
- Playing guitar
- Collecting WW2 Weapons
- Tropical fish keeping
Mine are pretty geeky, computer games, anything archaeological, travelling and anything involving my daughter :)

My life outside school largely seems to revolve around rugby and hockey matches for my children!
However in my 'free time' (?) Family History, Sudoku, Gardening, Cycling and Theatre visits
I ran a Guide unit for 11 years, but had to give it up recently as I simply ran out of time for me.
Classical music (play French Horn in local orchestra) (no, not the same as a tenor horn)
Husband and children
Exercise (classes and running)
Walking the dog
Reading (usually while walking the dog!)
Watching my husband NOT get his remote control helicopter to fly straight!

That also involves some re-enactment
Football supporter - Season ticket holder at Cheltenham Town, also support Liverpool.
Xbox - PES, Forza, COD4
I was at one point involved in internet radio, and wouldn't mind having another go, but its all a bit too costly.
