If I were ever to have unlimited funds I would most likely surround myself with gadgets - I love anything remotely techie, regardless of its usefulness quotient. Trying to save money to go to Antarctica on a survey trip, but having a daughter in University is hampering that plan!
I'd like to be more practical in terms of building/repairing things. Or even just have an ability to sew might be nice. I'll always have a go, but usually am horribly embarassed by the result and don't want anyone to see! Would also love to know why it is that some people are just natural bakers? I couldn't make a cake if my life depended upon it, although I can pretty much knock up something savoury from the few limp leftovers in the bottom of the fridge, so I guess I shouldn't complain really. Anyway, I don't often eat cake!
I like the rain and spring/autumn days, but not when it's windy. There's nothing more frustrating than sideways rain that sneaks up on you and wheedles its way through the gaps in your clothing! I think that there should be a natural law that states rain should never be allowed to move horizontally!
