Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stay and enjoy reading about where I've been and what I've been doing!

I don't mean this to be a replacement for personal emails, but it gives me the chance to put up photos and my scrapbook layouts, so I don't block up your in-boxes, or have to send the same photos and stories to everyone separately!
Thanks, and welcome, to the followers of my blog. I'm very honoured that you enjoy it. Drop me some comments from time to time! It's good to hear what you think about the posts. Come back again soon.

Thanks also to Mary of Mary's Mixes for doing all the work on the blog's heading. You are great, Mary!

Back to Pinterest

Just a few short lines after I had a comment on my last entry from Margaret at BooksPlease.  I would hate to be accused of putting people off joining Pinterest, as there are some fabulous ideas and things collected by lots of other subscribers.  Here’s what I said to Margaret: 

“ I suppose there are ideas and things on the internet that you see and want to save, so perhaps it IS a good idea to have them all in the one place. Alternatively of course you could save to a file in your own Documents. The difference is that other people can look at your Pinterest board/s, and you can search theirs! I still call it a time waster, but it IS nice to see what other people are interested in and you do find good ideas that you never thought of!” 

What I mean is that you can get sucked in just looking at everyone else’s boards and collecting stuff, that you never have time to look at, far less do, any of the things you have pinned on your own board!  I could easily be sucked in, but I’ve been sucked in to all sorts of other stuff already and could, and sometimes do, spend hours in front of my laptop screen instead of getting up off my backside and doing things! 

Margaret, I am looking forward to looking through your blog.  I love your part of the world!

Talk again soon.

PS It’s snowing again and I am going up to Edinburgh this afternoon to take my sister for afternoon tea, courtesy of a Groupon voucher I bought recently. It gave me 55% off the normal price!  However my problem is, do I drive into town or take the bus. If the weather got too bad later, the buses might stop running, but if I drive my car in, I might have difficulty getting back.  No, I won’t be a wooss!  I’ve driven in worse conditions than this!  I’ll go by car! -

Well, I forgot to post this this morning!  So now I can tell you that I took the car up to Edinburgh and it wasn’t a problem.  By the time I was half way there it had turned to rain anyway!  More of that story next time.

Evee you haven't put me off Pinterest at all. It's just that I take quite a while before deciding to take the plunge to actually do something! I was like that with writing my blog.

You summarised what I was thinking about just making files in my own Documents, which of course I do now. Maybe I'll try it - it will have to wait until the weekend as today and Friday are very busy days for me this week.

I'm glad I didn't put you off Pinterest, Margaret!
