I'm new here and thought I'd try to get to know people by finding out more about you individually, if that's okay? So I'm really into animal behaviour. Having previously been a vet nurse it always fascinated me & was obviously a big part of my job so that was a bonus. As a result I have pets... currently 2 house rabbits and a lovely gerbil. I'm also into motorbikes... having grown up around them I just love to be around them & riding them. So what interests you?
I haven't posted on here for a while. I find the forum controls a little confusing sometimes. But overall I like the forum, and think both it and the NAS are pretty okay
This is a really cool thread. It's good to share what people like, and what interests them. Thinking about disability and life's stresses and strains can be a bit tedious and upsetting, and I can be a real complainer and belly-acher lol.
I notice some people like music. I like that too. I have always listened to a variety of genres, and really like baroque music, early music, and pop. You Tube is good for both watching and listening to music vids. I've been revisiting a lot of ska - the specials, bad manners, and reggae too. I've been listening to a lot of Jerry Williams (she's an amazing talent - I love the guitar and her song, Mother), and also Suzanne Vega.
I like messing about with musical instruments, especially folk and 'ethnic' or 'world music' ones. There is a music shop in the city near me, and I got a djembe there - an African drum, and also an mbira, which is a little, hand held harp with meta keys. I love them both, and have come up with some cute little ditties from time to time. I find it's a good way to relax and unwind.
Someone here is into bikes. That's good. I don't have a bike, but I see lads in my area razzing around on quads, scooters, and scramblers, and wish I could have a go with them. I think they're dead cool.
The nature photos are top too. I have a camera on my mobile phone, and I take pics of the local beauty spots and parks I walk around with my Dad. I take pics of lakes, monuments, swans and birds and such like. I almost got a pic of a deer once - but I wasn't quite quick enough. Perhaps I will be luckier next time.
I also like walking, and do lots and lots of this; antiques; and going round galleries and museums occasionally. I like films too, especially sci fi, horror and good period dramas.
I also talk my ass off, and like the sound of my own voice hehe
Thanks for this thread
