Finding a hobby

I know, I know, like I don’t have enough to do, but I really think I need to find a hobby. I need to find something I can do that takes me out of the house and allows me to spend some time to myself.

The only downside is that I don’t really have any real life friends and I’m fairly shy in person and going in to a new situation on my own terrifies me.

I also don’t know what type of hobby I want to do. I don’t really want to join a gym, but swimming could be an option and something I could do on my own and get me fit at the same time. I’d like to learn to sew, but I don’t know if there are anything like that round here.

It would be nice to make new friends. I feel quite isolated a lot of the time being in with the younger 2 children so it would be nice to make some friends with similar aged children or who understand what it’s like to run a business etc. It’s quite hard to find similar people to you and people you gel with. I think that’s why I don’t bother a lot of the time. It sometimes feels like a lot of effort, although I know deep down it will benefit me in the long run. Things can get pretty lonely on a daily basis.

I think a hobby and some friends would also help with my constant foul mood. I just feel so cooped up and I feel like I don’t know who am I….to be honest, I don’t even know if I’ve ever really known who I am but that’s a whole different blog post!!

Do you have a hobby that allows you time out from the household and children? What do you do?

    What about something you can do with the kids such as mums and toddlers? I moved to a new area when my oldest was 18 months and I was expecting my second child. They are now 18 and 16. I have made lots of friends in this area through the kids and still stay in touch with some of them. Some people I met through mums and tots and some just through walking to school. Plus, I’ve only to go for a walk or to the supermarket and I come across someone I know and have a good gossip with them.
