My first hobby was collecting napkins! I collected many of them and when I was tired of that my family used them in a big birthday party. I was very happy for that ,like sharing my collection with everybody. After all it was an eight years old girl collection!
It was the winter of 1978. I was ill with the flu and I couldn't go to school. I was a ten years old student at that time. I was very bored and didn't know what to do. When my father returned home from work he had a present for me: an envelope full of stamps from all over the world! That was it! The next days I became better but I never got better from the microbe of the philately. I managed to collect thousands of them, put them in books, exchange my similar with other collectors. As the years went by I started a coin collection too, but not so passioned.When I got married I found out that me and my husband were sharing the same hobby so we add the two collections in one and had about 2000 stamps. We were thirteen months married when thieves got into our house and stole our collections (stamps and coins). Probably they would have thought that they were valuable. In fact their value was unimportant but not for us. I haven't collect any stamp or coin since then...
My hereditary hobby is kniting. Everyday I try to do my houseworks fast in order to have time to do my handicraft. It's relaxing, creative and...thieves don't prefer it!!!
I'm looking forward to hear about your hobbies...beside blogging ofcourse!!!
