Once again I am unable to sleep so I'm watching some home makeover show and I've just discovered something I never really knew about myself....I really envy crafty people. I am useless at all things craft-like. Give me a knitting needle and a staple gun and I will have 3 or more people in emergency 10 minutes later. They get a drill, snap, snap, snap... look! its a to scale replica of the Eiffel tower that the kids can have sleepovers in. Two dowels and a piece of shade sail and they have an awning that can be opened with one hand. They are the McGyvers of the DIY world.
I always like to think that I am crafty. I have a box with over 50 balls of different coloured wool because I just know I'm going to knit all the kids their own personalised sweaters one day soon. I also have a box full of scrapbooking supplies because those photos can't stay on the camera forever and I want to show them off in the most decorative way possible. I have a sewing machine I don't know how to use and an overlocker I'm not even sure how to thread. I have cake decorating equipment that has never seen the light of day. I even went and bought 5 poles, 90 x 90 x 300 because I actually think that building that dream cubby house for the kids won't be hard at all. I even went so far as to mark the measurements on the poles. Now I just have to cut a 45mm housing. What is a 45mm housing? I am stumped and even You Tube and Google couldn't help me.
Oh well, they are in the driveway right now making great blocks for the tyres so my car doesn't roll out into the street. My driveway isn't sloped in the slightest bit but what else am I going to use them for? To build a cubby house????
