Today........


Strong coffee to get me through this morning.

And no, it's not for a hangover. I just needed a caffeine surge this morning. Unusual for me to have such a caffeine hit so early, but needs must!

I have a ton of washing to get washed and put away. A food shop needs doing and I am sitting here faffing on the computer.

I need to get off Pinterest. Is there help available for pinterest addiction?!!!!

Anyone else feel like that?

The urge to pin and spend ridiculous amounts of time looking at gorgeousness is tremendous! I have too many boards to mention and don't even want to think how many pins I have pinned. If it was an old fashioned scrapbook, i'd have filled a whole bookcase full.

I'm here if you are a pinterest buddy and want to find me and take a peek at my pins.

Okay, I really should do some work now.

It's Friday at least, so have a beautiful weekend all and see you next week!

  1. Don't stop pinning! I'd have nothing to pin if it weren't for you!

    107 boards and 14,568 pins FYI!!!!!! Yes you do need help. What I mean is you need domestic help so you can carry on sitting at the computer creating drool fests for ME!

  4. Yes I completely agree about pinterest!! It's fabulous and I try to restrict my usage to once-twice a week...otherwise I'd totally get sucked in.

  5. I saw YOUR coffee machine this morning at a Homemakers Expo in Johannesburg, South Africa, and am actively campaigning to get one! It is lovely, and available in such nice colours.

  6. Cripes stripeymooka, these are your pinning stats::
    107 Boards · 14603 Pins (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    The numbers say it all, I do spot a wee bit of an addiction lol!
    I'm managing to stay in control of my Pinterest habit, but even so I do find I often spend time on there instead of crocheting in the eves, which irritates me but I still do it!
    Sending lots of love for a fabulous weekend

    ps I had the exact same need for caffeine early this morning, I'm having a hideous week actually.

    I made an account ages ago...never used it...set up another one...have made a few boards....I think I have about 6 photo's pinned...
    i think it is a brilliant idea, but I am a scaredy cat...resisting pinning...else I probably will not be able to control myself lol!
    Have a wonderful weekend
    LOVE PEACE enJOY your pinning ;-)

  10. I have to admit, everytime I log on to Pineterst you have been pinning away, but they are always so gorgeous so it is hard to give up, and you always end up coming across something else to search for, it is just endless hours of fun x x x x x

  11. Ah, a girl after my own heart - strong black coffee and a pinterest addict!! I am completely hooked, it's like having a huge pile of wonderful magazines that you just can't stop flicking through looking at all the great pictures. I keep telling myself, this is the last one, and then I see another I like......sigh! xx

  12. I love your pinboards. We are just in the process of buying a house and I have found some much inspiration on your pinboards - I have had to start up my own account now!! My 13 year old daughter spends hours looking through yours - lovely, lovely things.

  13. Your boards are mega pretty, haven't taken the plunge myself YET, maybe I should stay clear I'm already too much of a computer geek, need to cut down :S
    Coffee sounds good :)
    Have a sweet weekend Karen x

  14. I've resisted the urge to join Pinterest as yet! Although I have an 'account' just resisted getting started. I've seen what it does to other crafters!!

  15. Well, I joined Pinterest but I can't find out what to do or how to do it...perhaps I am just missing the point altogether?

  16. Hi Vanessa,

    I have been thinking about joining Pinterest too, but am glad to hear it costs you so much time. It makes my decision not to start pining easier. With the gardening season coming up I need every spare minute :-)!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Veel lieve groetjes,

  18. Am I the only person in the world not addicted to Pinterest?! I'm on there but don't pin much. I do love to look at the things you pin, Vanessa. Maybe that's why I don't pin - you do it for me! Have a great weekend xxx

    Fresh coffee is a lovely way to kick start your day, hope you get your list done.

  25. Oh I feel your pain/joy about pinterest! I have tried to stay away from it for months..I started a while ago and was so addicted...my brain just gets so full of lovely images I feel like it is going to explode! Plus the amount of time it takes is crazy! Soooooo I have been taking a break but every once in a while I need to pin something. Hugs to you dear one. xoxox
