Have you heard of this thing called Spare Time? It sounds fantastic and lots of people seem to have it. I have a very vague memory of having some when I was little and then again when I was a student and actually, up until the time when I had kids I'm sure I had some knocking around somewhere, but I just cannot seem to lay my hands on any now. I've even looked on eBay and they don't have any. Amazon don't stock it and neither do Tesco. Which leaves me a tad puzzled.
The reason why I'm looking for this elusive Spare Time is because I never seem to have enough time, so the prospect of having some 'spare' simply beggars belief. Imagine having some 'spare' time. Brilliant!
And what would I do if I did get some of this Spare Time? Well, I'm not entirely sure to be honest. It all depends on whether it comes in bits, or whether it's in one big lump that you have to use up all at once. I suppose I could use it to sort out the permanent jumble sale going on in the cupboards, drawers and wardrobes dotted around my house. Or I might use it to have lots of uninterrupted cups of tea, or to read some books, or to actually write the bloody book I keep threatening to write. Then again, I might be tempted to just keep it hidden away in a special, pretty box somewhere and just look fondly at it every now and again to remember the good old days when I had loads of it.
So, if you know where I can get some Spare Time, even if it's just a really tiny bit, or maybe you have some of your own that you don't want any more, please let me know. It would be going to a very grateful and very careful owner.
