Still Here

Posted by MANDI at 8:11 PM
I've spent most of the day following the doctors orders.

I did overdo it slightly this morning, gave myself a wee fright and spent the rest of the day trying to make up for it. So, all from the comfort of my bed I've played board games, been adorned with jewellery and joined in with some crazy made up game that involved tiny little toy puppies and the girl-child being their mum who had to go to work, shopping and out with friends. A lot. I totally took that as the guilt trip it was intended to be. I also watched tv, read and played on my laptop. Oh and I fitted in a nap too.  Hubby has been wonderful, sorting the kids, organising meals and hanging up load after load of washing.

I 've got tomorrow to get through in the same way so while I have you here... got any suggestions for blogs or websites that I should check out? Are you on Pinterest? What's your name over there - I'll check out your boards and follow you. Or if you're not on and want an invite leave me a message in the comments and I'll take care of it.

 I did launch into a big whinge here then came back and deleted it because I sounded like a total brat with first world problems. I am ridiculously lucky to live in a country with great health care, to earn enough to be able to pay for private health insurance and see the doctors of my choice in the hospital of my choice and to be able to afford to have a few days off work while I get better. So whinge over. If being bored is the worst of my problems then I'm doing just fine.

I tried to ring you earlier but I guess you'd already left for the beach?

Oh dear Miss Mandi! How horrible for you. Sorry I've not got any suggestions for you on how to keep busy - except for a good book? My juggling skills are pretty woeful so that's no good. Keep your chin up and hopefully you'll soon be back to your normal self. See --- turning 40 was a mistake! Take care. Fi <3

Really hope all goes well!
Is Pinterest mostly about crafting?
I´m trying to get tired, so I keep it kinda short... On my blog I have the category "Links" - "360 cities" is awesome (I think), "Awkward Family Photos"... well... funny :-) As "Black and WTF" and if you wanna travel some more, try "earth album". I love most of the "Cheezburger"-stuff, too.
Or "Mensa Figures" might be interesting for you? For you, not your kids ;-) And "Totally Cool Pics"... well... cool :-)
Hope you don´t get bored too much and get well very soon!

Thanks Fi xx
Iris, Pinterest does have craft but there are lots of different categories - art, clothes, hair, recipes, gardens, etc. You can click the 'everything' link which should give you a heap of different stuff or select a specific topic to look at (hover over 'everything' at the top and the dropdown menu should appear.
kj, I'll do it now!

Hmmm, well, maybe I give it a go? Can you invite me, too, so I can check it out?
