Nothing happened, no falling out or anything - how can I fall out with you guys, it's impossible?!
Just don't enjoy the hobby anymore. I find myself sat at the workbench, modelling, wishing I was doing something else, or wishing I was somewhere else. What used to be joyful, fun and a source of enjoyment has slowly become a rather reluctant way to fill time.
It's just hit me very recently that I just don't enjoy it, don't look forward to it and plan for it like I used to.
I used to look at the stash and mentally build a few kits, but nowadays I find it all a little intimidating. I've turned into a bit of a collector by accident, and goodness knows why I've bought so many kits. It's bloody ridiculous and not very healthy!
I've imagined my world without my workbench, without the stash, without WNW's latest releases - and I find it exhilarating and a bit of a release.
I've rejoined the gym & booked a personal trainer. I'm taking a couple of weeks for a little UK tour - RAF Hendon, Fleet Air Arm, London's many, many museums (Natural History, Science, Imperial War, British Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Tate, to name but a few), The Tank Museum at Bovington, RAF Cosford, the Shuttleworth Collection - there's a huge list I want to work my way through. I'm even doing bits of DIY around the house and find myself enjoying it!!!
I also read a huge amount & find myself enjoying that. I've got a massive collection of books, more than enough to see me to the end of my days.
So, there you have it. Nothing wrong with the people, or the hobby - I've just fallen out of love with it, but it's taken me a wee while to realise it and accept it as a good thing, opening up time for so much else I want to do.
