Over the time I had several ways to relax.
I used to build scale models.
I used to have budgerigar (my link with down under...).
I used to build websites.

Right now?

I don't relax... I shouldn't.
When I relax I just sit down and watch a movie, which usually leads to 2 hours of sitting on my rear end, not burning any calories at all and just gaining weight.

But still, I am planning on getting back to building scale models, thinking about some motorcycles and a large wooden ship.

What sort of bikes Freddy? Motogp/racing or road models?

I mainly build 1/72 WW2 aircraft in my spare time, which ain't a lot lately but yeah its good fun.

Lately though at the end of the day, college plus homework plus exercise I just relax by vegging out.

I have lots. :lol:

I like to paint and i'm in the middle of doing a Tulip painting for my sister for Christmas. I like to do cross stitch and scrapbooking too.

At night, to relax I sit down and watch Two and Half Men with a cup of tea. :x

I've done some fighter jets as well, but it wasn't too much fun. The best fun I had was when I was building Harley's :) I want to get back to building scale cycles, and was indeed thinking about the motogp cycles...

Ah cool I love Harley's too.

The last two years of Motogp have been great for schemes. The factory Yamaha and Ducati teams look fantastic in my opinion.

Once I finish my course I'll get stuck into em again, just finding time thats the hard thing

Cheers.

Yeah, I really should get back into it.

However, right now cycling has become my way to relax. I ride about 7 to 8 hours a week and I feel pretty good doing it. It allows me to think over each thing that needs to be thought over. Important things like moving to a new house, being able to save a couple of hundred euro's a month... And obviously the less important things ;)

In the past few years my way of relaxing (more so when hubby is away) is to drink a couple glasses of chilled chardy in bed whilst watching television re-runs! Terribly unhealthy I know! Besides that, reading a book or watching a movie is usually my way of relaxing.

Hubby has ants in his pants though and doesn't like to relax!

my relaxation is right now... laying in bed talking crap =) alternatively, if i'm feeling too bored i'll hop into my race car simulator and fly around bathurst a few times in a v8. basically anything that isn't thinking about work, money or relationship crap is my relaxing time 8)
