Have just collected B1's rented flute (yes, I said no more instruments, and I'm not quite sure how this has happened) from the county music service. Could not resist putting it together and having a little toot. Very impressed that I could make a noise that was vaguely musical.
Cleaned it, buffed it with a cloth, and popped it back in its case - she will never know.
It's just so shiny .... I think I'm in love...
I think you need a flute.
Seriously - you're always doing down your ability when you post on here, but I honestly think that you are
musical but haven't found your instrument and have had bad past experiences which have put you off. The flute seems to have attracted you and seems to be asking to be played.
You've got a reasonable sound out of the flute without having had any lessons, and it can take people a couple of months of lessons to get that far...
Don't be put off by the flute being your daughter's 'thing'. She's got other instruments as well (particularly her violin which I think is unique to her in your household). If she wants to play the flute then your learning won't put her off - and if it does then she clearly isn't really that enamoured with the flute in the first place.
