Welcome to the Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where twelve of us write on the same topic. Today’s topic has been chosen by Rohit who I think is on a sabatical from blogging. The ten other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order, Delirious, gaelikaa, Grannymar, Magpie, Maria SF, ocdwriter, Padmum, Paul, Rohit, The Old Fossil and Will. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, do give some allowance for that too!
I remember the times when I used to interview candidates for employment. It used to amuse me no end to hear them answer the question “What are your hobbies?” with “Work, Sir.”
A hobby is a regular activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure, typically done during one’s leisure time.
Since I am on permanent leisure time, I suppose that all my activities can come under the term hobbies. That should include time spent in the kitchen making tea, cooking, washing, drying and storing away vessels and dishes, shopping for groceries, the odd occasion when I have to wash and dry the clothes, and so on and so forth.
If these are hobbies, then what about my eclectic reading and solving crossword puzzles? Do they become my escape mechanisms? How about blogging and surfing the internet? And the much looked forward to fellowship of the park?
I am confused. Can someone remove my confusion?
