My Favourite Hobby – Being a Football Referee

Michael Usher's favourite hobby is being a soccer referee

I love my job, but it can be very stressful, not only for my clients, but for me too. After all its part of our policy to hold our client’s hand every step of the way when they apply for a mortgage.

So my stress buster is to go running around on a Saturday or Sunday (and sometimes during the week) refereeing a football game.

When I gave up football a few years ago, I missed the dressing room banter and the general camaraderie. Being a ref is the next best thing, although sometimes you are the bad guy for someone on the day – because you make decisions all the time and one side will agree, the other wont and believe me it’s a different kind of banter!!

But I love it, it keeps me fit, stops me from lounging around at the weekends (although I can tell you my wife has lots of jobs for me to do when I am at home) and after the game, everyone leaves as friends – most of the time.

In case you are interested my other favourite hobby is being a Deejay…Yes I don’t know where I get the time either.
