campers are way cool. have seen quite a few done up transporters recently and a few people in work have them.

Ive got way too many hobbies and no time to do them!

Theres the obvious planted tanks. Im secretary of Vale of Clwyd Bonsai which takes up some time and have quite a few trees although they havent been getting my full attention since I started back on the planted tanks. Also theres the photography which ive been doing since 2005 and my other main hobby is Skoda's. not everyones cup of tea but I really like them and like doing the odd non chav mod. im on my third now and on briskoda.net quite often.

Good cars are skoda's! I'd have one any day. I'd quiet like TDI's transporter 5 too, they're all VW's at the end of the day.

We have a Skoda Octavia Tdi Elegance , its excellent, we decided to trade in our Fabia for a little bit more boot space as once my daughter's buggy was in it didn't leave very much room for anything else. We wanted to get the Octavia Laurin & Klement but we couldn't find one in our price range. We would be very hard pushed to go to a different make now. Looking forward to seeing what the 4x4 Yeti is like when it comes out.

Since my late teens I started watching my rugby league team (Hull KR) home and away, and never missed a game in about three years. Then I moved away from home and missed a few matches before being totally exiled down South but manage to make the odd game.

Whilst moving away to Halifax, I was in search of something to fill my time with other than work. So, I joined the local rugby league referee's society and managed to progress fairly high up quickly before moving down South where the opportunities to officiate are very limited. Therefore, I've hung up my boots for the time being. I'll deffo go back to it should I move back Northwards, as fitness side apart, it was really enjoyable. So I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a sport to try and get more involved.

Here's a few photos of me in action...

A very cold and wet day as Touch Judge at Siddal, one of my earliest games I think.

And my only quote in a newpaper about me...
Pontefract & Castleford Express said:
Although the referee had a perfect view, he consulted a linesman who was 30 yards away before disallowing the try.

HAHA. Parkour makes me laugh. it just reminds me of watching rollerbladers without the blades.
I skateboard and during winter model make. Neither of which especially well these days.
