What else do you like doing when you're not writing poems?

I love to go walking, especially over hills if possible and I really enjoy working in the garden here and I've also become very fond of painting which I started to do recently. My husband gave me my easel and oil paints for a birthday a couple of years ago and I was really pleased with these and I thought I was doing quite well - quite the painter - and for my first painting set out an aubergine and a pepper on the table. I did this painting, spent ages over it, then I showed it to him and he spoilt it - he thought it looked like a bottom.
