Something a little different

June 24th, 2009

Whilst the sun is shining, I’m pretty realistic that most of us aren’t going to be doing too much mini-ing. The fact is that you can’t always take this hobby outside, parts of it yes, but not the whole thing.

So today I thought, instead of talking about dolls’ houses  I’d talk about something I do instead of mini-ing, or maybe that should be as well as. One of the best ways for me to relax is with a four legged friend, preferably one with a mane and tail, but I’ll take a wagging tail and wet nose too. Whilst dolls’ houses inspire my creativity and allow my mind to wander into past and future times, horseriding and dog walking help me to remember that there is a world outside home, work and four walls.

I think it’s something to do with comunning with nature and having a connection with another animal. This connection doesn’t always work perfectly, my horse bolted down the tarmac road with me this weekend and gave me horrific visions of us both sliding down the steep hill looming.  This was shortly followed by a momentous break through when she walked past the offending pile of fly tipped tyres which had caused her to shoot off in the first place. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to the way animals act, we just have to take it our (and their) stride. Another little lesson learnt.

I also think it’s pretty healthy to have a combination of hobbies, things that provide different distractions for us, I’d love to know what everyone else gets up to besides dolls’ house collecting so please do tell me in the comments slot below.
