I've just come across a bag of stones I've kept for years. I have a thing for stones I dint know why but I can forget time if I'm looking at or for unusual stones.
I also have gardening as a hobby that I think about way too much and spend hours on but I think that's a more socially acceptable hobby in a nt world
Some of my facinations are old historic buildings and the architecture, castles because I get a feeling of what it must of been like all them years ago whilst walking around and I always have to feel the stone they were built from. I love looking at the greeness of grass in the summer when its cut short and had plenty of water to help it grow healthy.
Collections are lots of old coins one particular dating back to 1896 an old 1 pence I have, shillings numerous different 50p coins with different pictures etc. I don't collect them because they are worth anything as they probably aren't, but I just love looking at them. I have also collections of mugs but they are just stored away as new I won't ever use them I just like having the collection also car statistic cards limited edition and Lego models still in original packaging that I'll never put together as i like to preserve them as new. I have many collections too many to list.

Yes! I love castles for this very reason. I like to think of all the people that lived and died there, what it must have been like, felt like and smelt like. I like to look through the archer slits in the turrets/towers and try to imagine what the fear must have felt like when an approaching army was gathering to attack..
I love historic buildings too. I used to love looking around castles. Now I'm stuck in the 1940s. I used to dress 40s and would love to live in a 40s house. I could easily be without technology
