Hobbies and Interests

Remember the thrill of opening the new cereal box to find what was inside. The photos below are Train cards that originally came in a box of Weetbix.

The cards bring back some childhood memories of collecting things like cards from cereal boxes, swap card and stamps.

    Hello Robyn and all, Sorry I do not enjoy your gardening hobby, For me it is OK if I can run a lawnmower over it. I have brown thumbs and tend to keep them that way. My hobby and passion is Photography, I teach photography at Computer Pals Doonside, I am at present developing a Photography for the Beginners course with U3A Online. I am a member of Blacktown City Photographic Club and qualified by the FCC (Federation of Camera Clubs) as a photographic judge to judge photographic competitions and exhibitions. I would be only too glad to answer anybodies questions on photography.

    I enjoy getting out in the garden and spending time creating my garden. There is lots to do as we are on a very large block and only moved here about a year ago with not much garden at all. I love a challenge and it is a wonderful way to get some exercise. My daughter is starting to get interested in the garden so it is great to share something I love with her.
