Nothing new I don't think, just more regular golf and motorbiking.
I suppose walking/visits to the beach is new. Wasn't that far from a beach back in the UK but mostly freezing cold.
Was a very keen hill walker back in the UK and loved the thought of being able to do lots of tramping here but just haven't found the time yet.

It's when I'm narrating to myself out loud at home to break the silence that I realise I should get out more. Although, last night I did say good night to the dishwasher !

Like finishing a Yoga class and then going out to get very, very drunk?

I remember reading F1 champion Nigel Mansell was a golf fan as well, maybe racing just wasn't quite exciting enough for him.

Kitchen appliances are much under appreciated, it's sort of sweet . Of course talking to yourself puts you about half a step away from taking a selfie which is when you really cross some invisible line.

I hope you instead of giving it a kiss goodnight, you gave it some Calgon

That's an extra 30 years worth of life to a dishwasher

(I don't have Calgon and I've given up putting salt in it as it just guzzles salt like there's no tomorrow.)

So glad to see I'm not the only one talking to the whiteware ..... My OH thinks I'm going NUTS! Where's that truck of sauvignon blanc, merlot, beer, ethanol? (delete where appropriate). Anything will do .......
