A joint activity / Hobby

(18 Posts)

So my OH thinks it will be a nice idea for us to start a joint activity, something we can learn together. Lovely idea however I cannot think of anything other than the norm! He already does a lot of sports. I am very girlie. We have kinda settled on cooking classes (he is not keen on horse riding I am not keen on rock climbing!)Does anyone has any brilliant ideas or activities they currently do that they would like to share? NB we are both very competitive so preferable something where we won't be kicking a ball at each others heads!!

We go hiking together - exploring new places, and rockpooling/crabbing in the summer.

What about learning a new language with the aim of going on holiday to that country in a year's time?

Kayaking? Not too strenuous but sort of a sport

Yes, what Hermione said - learn a new language and go to that country for a holiday.

Wine appreciation? A language as suggested above, genealogy? Some form of dance class?

Second the dancing suggestion - maybe salsa or something?

We're learning Spanish together and it's quite good fun

DH got me a 2000-pc puzzle for Christmas one year. Took us about six weeks to do, three nights a week for an hour or two, with a beer and a catch up chat. It was a great bonding activity. You can get puzzle mats to roll it p and keep it safe if you don't have space to leave it out (or curious toddlers to rip it apart by "helping"!)

We got another, but we moved and I started working and we haven't really had time since.

Gardening/ fruit and veggie growing?

LARP or historical reenactment.

Ballroom dancing. All that practicing and home, keeps you fit. Keeps you close, keeps you intimate and is great fun.

Ballroom dancing - my DH wasn't sure but loved it once we started. We've taken a few medals and were going to do comps before DS came along.
