My main hobby is playing electric guitar and writing and recording songs. I've been playing the guitar since I was eight. It's an absorbing hobby and has held my interest for 50 years.

Recently I decided I wanted to try something new so for Christmas I got a drum kit. I chose it online and my partner set it up and hid it under a sheet until Christmas morning. It's very sparkly and LOUD!!!!! Luckily I have no neighbours within a few hundred yards. I can already hold down a basic beat but there is so much to learn. I am doing an online course and following a talented drummer on Youtube.

I cannot say enough positive things about how much I am enjoying my new hobby.

We are never too old to learn something new and a change from routine is like a breath of fresh air.

Challenge yourself! Try a brand new hobby for the new decade and keep your mind active and your face smiling!

Totally agree with you Rain,you are never too old to learn,although I am most certainly not as talented as you musically,I cannot play musical instruments,
But any hobbies are good,if they bring you happiness.
No home is complete without the pitter patter of kitty feet.

I am going to do try to do that. I am starting to get too old for the hobbies I have now. I said I was going to
do it last year and never did. Today I made some calls about the cost of different hobbies. I will not stop
this time until I find one.

My main hobby is trying to maintain my independence.

Not sure if I want to take up another new hobby at the moment, but do have several I still enjoy, but have not done much with them for some time. So will try and enjoy them a bit more this year.

Slight tangent- Rain, have you ever been part of a drumming circle?

It is not a hobby of mine, is something I have only done once, but was very interesting experience.

learning new musical instruments is an excellent way to keep our minds fresh for sure.

My new hobby is a new dog. A rescue dog. It's nice to have him to walk with.
We go for a long walks everyday, quite often two. There are so many dogs that would love to have someone to take them on walks. I feel so sorry for dogs that are home alone for hours and hours everyday with nothing to do.
At least it keeps me active physically. He is a sweetie!

Dogs are an amazing addition to our lives and great at keeping us fit and helping us to socialise. I have two rescue dogs and they seem to be especially loving.
