Windsor, Pinterest and Facebook

Thank you for your kind good wishes on my last post. I'm gradually getting better and I had a lovely weekend. A sunny Sunday was spent in Windsor catching up with my eldest and her family. Here we are with my youngest and baby Maisy and that's the castle peeping through the trees in the distance.

We didn't visit the castle but had a nice lunch in a pub catching up on all the news.

Last week was spent mostly at home, skipping through the amazing site called Pinterest. I'd heard of it many times through people's blogs but I couldn't see the attraction until that is, I gave it a go myself!
I am now hopelessly hooked. For instance, I can collect all my favourite artists in one place.

Another new venture for me is my new Facebook Fan page. I wanted to do one for ages but wasn't sure how and kept putting it off. With time on my hands off work I had a chance to set it up. If you haven't been to visit me there, please do come over and say hello. I'll be thrilled to see you!

Glad you had a fun weekend and that you are feeling better. Hmmm.. Pin interest yes, I can imagine is very addictive. I think I'll steer clear for a little while longer! x

Trish said...

Glad you are feeling better, there are lots of horrible chest infections about...
I can imagine that if I went on Pinterest i would get lost forever!xxx

Looks like you had a fantastic day, Jess. I'm glad you're feeling better. I used to live near Windsor and went there often. I loved sitting on the benches in front of the castle and watched people walked by. Oh, how I miss that. Thanks for bringing up old memories. :)

Sorry you have been poorly but glad to read you are feeling better.
Lovely, happy family photo.
I've not joined Pinterest or Facebook, spend too much time in Blogland and Ravelry already!

Thanks Karen, it's nice for those moments when all you want to do is to look at inspiring images. :o)

Thanks Trish, yes, you might! ;o)

Wow Amalia, fancy that! It's a lovely place to walk around, we stumbled upon Eton. I don't know if it was open to the public but no-one told us off!

Oh Fluff Master, don't be shameful but I wonder what your username is. :o)

Thanks Carol, I know, we can only spread ourselves so thin that we disappear completely! ;o)

I am glad you have shifted your illness. All we need now is a little more sunshine for those fat buds to open on the trees.

Glad you are up and running again. Apparently I was born in Windsor. It looks nice, ha, ha. And thanks for the reminder of pinterest, I had forgotten about it.
