    What new or old hobbies or interests would you try or spend more time for if you had more free time on your hands?
    PS: This does not mean that you suddenly recieved 100 million bucks and could do absolutely anything. Keep it somewhat real.

    I would like to learn English so I could write the Big American Saga.

    Attend more F1 Grands Prix, thus far my attendance has only been limited to the British Grand Prix (albeit 27 times in the last 28 years!).

    I'd take a proper full-week holiday. Preferably in Italy or France, by the sea. I haven't been on one since 2002.

    On the other hand, I never work on Fridays, so I get 52 extra days off and often take long weekends.

    Now seriously, I´d take K.J. Apa (the guy in Gabriel´s sig pics up there who happens to be my husband) and would dye his hair back to dark brown. Then I would teach him how to spell "I love you" in 700 different languages and then...oh I just realized his chest is hairless, so I´d give him to Gabriel as a birthday present. :re:

    If I had more time on my hands, I would finally have time to read what I WANT to read, instead of what I HAVE to read. I'd also have time to watch all those 500 dvd's I have. And do all the small projects I envision that I want to do. Paint, knit, decorate...

    I might do some more walking. I visited a wonky pub (due to mining subsidence stuff) and I fell out of the entrance without even touching alcohol. But I’d find more unusual places, parks, nature reserves, disused railway lines and waterways to stroll along. And places of refreshment along the route. I like a little stroll.

    But internet-English is not the same as novel-English. And since my saga-family would be a foreign (not Dutch) family, I couldn't write it in Dutch language, it just wouldn't feel right.

    As a child I fantasized about my "best-sellers", I even created the various dynasties and all their names (but not much plot, I'm afraid).

    Spend more time sticking pins in my Voodoo dolls. And I would like to get back into baking, but it's just not as fun with diabetes.

    Homemade cakes are so much better than the ones from the store.

    I was told this morning that my blood glucose control has “massively improved”, due to moderate exercise.

    So I’ve been eating lots of homemade chocolate orange cake and gingerbread people/sheep to celebrate.

    I'd definitely learn to horse ride or play a musical instrument.

    I would like to learn to play a musical instrument. Maybe something like the triangle. But I just don't have the time, what with all the partying and sex I have to cram in. I would also like to do a lot more sumo wrestling than I do although, to be honest, I can't find anywhere that sells those really big nappies that they wear.
