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.
