      I spend a lot of time playing Xbox, or watching comedy shows (probably OLD comedy shows, as far as your concerned) like Spaced and Black Books on DVD. I have far too many films on my shelves.
      I spend a lot of time, while I watch telly, drawing cartoons and pictures; silly stuff, but it amuses me and a few friends who are kind enough to comment. I didn’t used to read, but then I won a Kindle in a short-story competition and since then I’ve been reading loads! So many great stories that I’ve been missing out on…
      Sometimes I play the guitar, but less since I started doodling cartoons.
      I also just spend time hanging out with my wife; we enjoy each other’s company a lot. Plus, we just adopted a pair or kittens from a rescue shelter and trying to build up their confidence and teach them that we’re safe to play with feels like a full-time occupation at the moment!

      Edit to add: I would love to do skiing, but…well…I’ve tried roller-skating three times in my life and three times I have broken my arm. There is a strong correlation. I think skiing would end at least as badly. I claim that this is because I am tall and my centre of gravity is a long way from the ground. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

      I like to snowboard (or ski sometimes), just working my way onto backflips now but im still a few degrees away from landing properly. When theres no snow I usually surft and wakeboard. I play footy all year round for a university team and also for a team of drunk idiots I know from my local pub. In the summer I like to hit the track on my motorbike too 🙂

      I guess i spend a decent bit of time on my sofa too, not as much as id like though! playing xbox or my ps3 and watching films

      I like riding my bike (and i bike back and forth to work every day), reading, travelling with my wife (we got to go to spain few weeks ago and will go to the USA later this year!), watching TV (i loved the latest Sherlock series on BBC), normal stuff. Anthony seems pretty serious about snowboarding, i can’t do flips, but I do like skiing and tries snowboarding once, it hurts when you fall!

      @Dan – Sherlock was excellent – i can’t wait for the next series!

      I like getting out and about in the outdoors. I’m running quite a lot at the moment, but I also like to get out cycling, swimming, climbing, walking and caving too.

      I went snowboarding once, but I fell over a lot 🙁
