    I have a rather addictive nature when it comes to hobbies. I jump in head first with a "new thing" then get burnt out quickly and move onto something else. I'm sure there must be some super long medical term for it.

    Currently I have my tanks to keep me busy, Photography, learning to play guitar and piano. I also make candles with the Mrs although that has kinda turned into a little sideline.

    My most recent interest has come from my all time fascination with roller coasters. Now I want to start playing around with marble machines and rolling ball sculptures. I have stared ordering the bits to start making one of these.



    Eventually, I would like to get around to having a crack at something on this kind of scale and maybe larger.

    Carp fishing, which is insanely time consuming and expensive, imagine how pleased my missus was when she realised my new hobby the same!!!

    Im into emersed plants and I'm getting into plants with medicinal properties now. Im also into diy, anything I can make myself I will even if it costs the same as just buying from a shop. Im also into computers, fishing, kayaking, rugby, and stuffing my face full of food till I feel sick.
