My son, Jack, has been recuperating in hospital after an op, so I have been spending many hours at his bedside doing what any good mother would do, trawling through Pinterest!
I think the appeal of Pinterest is that you can almost create a whole parallel life for yourself with no constraints, financial or otherwise.
Of course in my Pinterest life I am slim and gorgeous with perfect hair and teeth.
I have impeccable taste and faultless style.
I live in an exquisite home
which I decorated myself.
I entertain beautifully and whip up amazing meals in my perfect kitchen
whether it's a dinner for a hundred
or a picnic for two.
I go on incredible holidays,
dressed in the perfect clothes
and with all the right travel accessories.
I am amazingly creative. I produce the most beautiful paintings in my wonderful studio.
I don my perfect linen apron
and make homemade gifts for my friends.
Not only are the gifts homemade, but so is the wrapping paper
and the gift tags.
There really is no end to my talents.
Now if only we could leave this hospital so that I can start living my Pinteresting life!
Till next time
