    I sing professionally at the weekends, very different from my 'day job'.

    my weekends are very boring at the moment.

    most saturdays i play football for my local team and last year i was playing rugby.

    i did take salsa lessons last year on saturday mornings which was pretty cool and i am planning to do that again in January.

    other than that it's mostly nights in for me; trying to save up money for moving out of my parents home at the moment.

    i've grown out of the stage of going out to a nightclub, getting drunk etc.

    i am also looking at volunteering on weekends as well.

    Having bought a house not to long ago the better half finds many jobs for me to fill up my weekends but when I'm not putting up shelves I do ballroom dancing and have done for about the past 14 years.

    Kite board and buggy (even manage to do some at school in the summer)

    Weather has been totally useless recently but I'm coping with the lack of kite flying by using MW2 as a substitute.

    Also going to the gym and swimming.

    My GF sings professionally at weekends so i either go along with her to help out or am cocooned up at the moment studying for more certs. Can't go out and do anything with cash as we are saving up for a house at the moment. 20k deposit so far and still going.

    On a saturday I am trying to read up for a certification but something always pops up, which means that annoyingly its not gone to plan.

    I work sat night in a bar from 21:00-04:30.

    I tend to sleep most of Sunday.- There are a few exceptions, ie F1 race weekends

    I am tempted to give the night job up but with it being an extra source of income I keep hanging on, much to the frustration of my mum.

    I dont really have much social life due to lack of time. If I do eventually leave my night job I want to join my local IAM driving group and train to become an observer.
