What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?

I enjoy spending my time gardening especially spring time when I can help bring things to life and then see it flourish through to summer/autumn. I also enjoy taking my dog Bailey out on long walks in the countryside and I love eating out! (She/her)
