BoatingWithin my family we havealways had a boat. There arelots of different activities thathaving a boat gives us accessto. These are things like sea &lake fishing, water sports(skiing, wakeboarding,biscuiting), and diving.Through this family occupation,not only can we provide food,but the catching of a fishprovides us with satisfactionand a sense of achievement.We always have an award for‘catch of the day’ which lasttime (refer to image) happenedto be me! It may be a small fishbut it is a trumpeter which isone of our favourite types.
ShoppingLife can be stressful or even boring at times so it’s important to have an occupation thatyou rely on for a bit of distraction and general ‘cheering up’. For me, that occupation isshopping! I always feel satisfied after a few hours or even a day shopping. It’s usuallysomething that brings my Mum and I together as we have similar taste in fashion andboth enjoy spending time together away from the boys every now and then.(Career Girl Network, 2013)
(Conde Nast, 2013)I love to try new foods from different cultures and also try out higherclass restaurants that have the ‘quality not quantity’ approach. I feelthat eating brings people together, whether it be a special familyoccasion, a friends birthday or a meal out with my boyfriend.
