passe-temps

#1
Hi, just double checking, but does " passe-temps" mean anything other than hobbies ?

For example, it doesn't really make sense in the following sentence, does it:
Dans mes passes-temps j'aime ...

It would have to be ..

Dans mon temps libre wouldn't it ?

Thanks

    You are right, Bob, dans mes passe-temps, j'aime' (without any 's' for 'passe by the way :rolleyes:) is not correct.
    I would say : Pendant mon temps libre, j'aime or Mes passe-temps favoris sont ...'
