A few weeks ago the husband started using Pinterest. I had visited the site every now and again when I felt the need to look at some eye candy but never thought much of it. The last thing I needed was another site to keep up with. Or so I thought.
Since I’ve only had the use of one hand these past few days and I couldn’t very well write lengthy blog posts while a very irritable baby pulled at my hair, I thought of browsing the site a little to brighten up my days. Now I’m addicted to it. So that makes Facebook, Twitter, Bloglovin and Pinterest I’m keeping up with. I usually visit them mostly at night when the kids are asleep but Pinterest has had me stuck to the screen every chance I could get.
It’s a treasure trove of inspirational images and has spurred me on to look at the mirror (which I’d been avoiding for the past few months) and fix an appointment at the hairdresser’s. I am also determined to start doing yoga again (the classes I was attending last Autumn had been stopped but will hopefully start again soon). If I used to wake up at 5.30am to fit in a 20 minute session every morning when I was still working at the shop, then I can do it now too.
What about you? Are you on Pinterest? If you aren’t, go and have a look. You might find it’s the perfect place to escape from the stresses of everyday life like I have.
PS – I didn’t take note of the sources for the first, third and fourth photo. If you happen to know the source please drop me a line and I’ll credit duly.
