    There is a shop in Cardigan that specializes in doll's houses and fittings. It is very much a back street outfit but still a fascinating place to window gaze.

    My daughter used to have two houses like those crammed full of Sylvanian animal families living in each room, good memories. When she was teenager and updating her room she gave the houses to me to give away and she cried. They are in my mothers loft wrapped up, hopefully for her child.

    I collect vintage wristwatches, have 2 scooters including a 1962 vintage Vespa, a motorbike (love riding two wheeled anythings) and then it's "normal" stuff. Football, hiking, boozing and procrastinating, I am world class with that combination and can often set off for the football, call at a pub and never actually get to the football.

    Similar likes to you but I draw the line at getting my bits out. Bad enough when Mrs Dave laughs......Im not having strangers laughing as well.
    Sold my kayak now......after selling the caravan.
    Re beach fishing.....do you remember the old Abbu 484 and the multiplier that went with it ? I still have mine in the garage.

    The Abu multipler was the small red 6000, if you were posh you could afford the black 6000C with ball bearings. They were only designed for salmon / freshwater and as you probably know the side plates corroded.

    The 7000 came along in the mid 70's, larger capacity, but not such a good casting reel.

    I thrashed my 6000 cod fishing.

    The ABU 484 and the Garcia Mitchell 602AP multiplier were the best combination at the time breaking many distant records around 1975
