Just keep pinning…

Being a chronic insomniac, I have a lot of time where I don’t want to be doing anything that will involve my brain too much and keep me awake but lying in your bed when you can’t sleep is torture!

One of my default activities when I’m awake at 1am is to play freecell, one of the card games that comes as standard with virtually every version of Windows still in current usage. It’s not particularly taxing but the repetition of moving cards around is sometimes enough to make me drop off.  Although the fact that I’ve played about 5,000 games in a year does say something about the level of my insomnia…

But the other thing I have discovered which keeps me somewhere near sane (not entirely sure I can claim to ever have been totally sane) is one of the newer social media networks on the block…

Pinterest

For anyone who has yet to discover Pinterest, it allows you to create a virtual pinboard of images from the internet, pretty much any image you want, and organise them onto different boards. All the images are then available to repin and are categorised in to Art, Design, Home Decor etc.

Whilst in abstract it sounds spectacularly uninteresting, it’s actually a bit like a tube of Pringles. One you pop, you can’t stop! Or in this case, once you pin

I have ten boards and one of my favourite categories to explore is Home Decor as I’m moving into my flat in the near future (I’m getting there but procrastination is my favourite trick!) and want to do some redecorating. One of things I have discovered is that in an ideal world I want a really big, white, country style kitchen. I think I must have over 50 pictures of those alone.

But here are some of my favourite other pins which include a gorgous chair from Graham and Green, crafty ideas and what looks like the most incredible cake ever…

What do you do when you can’t sleep? And if you have ventured into the world of Pinterest, what are your favourite pins?

  1. I love the lemon DIY srubs. Lemon is fab to get any icky self-tan off!! I have a fab coffee/brown sugar scrub too I stumbled upon in internet-land.

    Unrelated comment.. But I love anything DIY. I spend a lot of time scouring the internet for new ideas and easy things to do (e.g. my lovely jewellery/cork-board organiser)

    • I wish I liked coffee as the used grounds are so useful! But if you like craft/DIY then really do check out Pinterest. I have a board full of crafty stuff and there is a whole category devoted to it! It’s brilliant for ideas and I have so many things I am going to do from there.
      Thanks for the comment and hope you keep reading.
