The one thing that I have been promising myself I would do for the last 3 years was go to Hobby -X.
This year, I finally kept that promise and I went to Hobby-X on Sunday.
I was absolutely in my element. Luckily for me, I am quite strict when I budget and I am quite good at keeping to that budget, otherwise I would be finding myself in a precarious position right now.
There were a number of puzzle stands, and puzzles of every shape and size. Thankfully I don’t have the space right now to build a R32 000 piece puzzle. Budget or not- it would have come home with me.
I avoided the wool and knitting paraphanalia stands as much as I could. The one other thing that I do, especially when watching tv or movies, is knit. It keeps my hands busy. I’m always buying wool for the things I want to knit and although I knit, I still always have more wool than actual completed items.
They had a number of moziac tile stands and I am seriously considering taking this up as a hobby. At this point in my life, I really need to learn to relax more so the one thing that I need to do is take up a hobby. While I love baking, there is only so much cake a person can eat and I don’t believe in wasting food so the idea of baking merely to decorate the cake and then it goes to waste, does not appeal to me.
What I was really hoping to see was the baking stands and my budget and bank balance had a celebration of their own when there were no real baking stands other than the bakers guild.
For the people looking for the more expensive hobbies, they had a number of Harley Davidsons at the expo and out of all the stand, this was the only stand that I took photos of. Yes I love bikes and maybe when I am as rich as Donald Trump, I will get it over my hear to actually pay that kind of money for a bike!
