What I'd be doing if I didn't have kids

I've been spending a fair bit of time on Pinterest lately, pinning all kinds of awesome DIY stuff, like raised garden beds, knockoff Anthropologie tops, beautiful desserts. However, like most people who are frantically pinning these beautifully illustrated tutorials, I know I won't do 99.9% of these things.

Because children. I love the little buggers, but there is no making things, no sewing, no fiddly baking, no gardening, no home improvement with them around. & once they're asleep in bed, I'm too tired to do much other than veg in front of a screen with ice cream or popcorn.

Maybe someday I'll be able to do this stuff, someday before I'm old & even more grey. I'm hoping it'll be just a few years. Though I have little hope for Linnaeus wanting to do anything crafty with me, as his attention span for such things is about two minutes. But maybe Bronte's interest in scribbling & stickers will translate into a love for DIY & she'll let me work on my projects while she does her own.

In the meantime, I'll be on Pinterest, daydreaming about home decorating, fashion, gardening, baking... oh, & bikes. Lots of pretty bikes on there.
