Q: What does your hobby give you? How does it pay off?
A: As I mentioned I have more than 1 hobby. If it is sports, that is the time my husband & I get along & we can spend time together. Be it cycling, football on TV, Grand prix, off to England to watch a game & watching a tennis game at Roland Garros. The other would be travelling, again you are in relaxing mode & can enjoy the people around you.

Q: How would your life be different if you could not do what you love?
