there’s alway time for pinning …


It doesn’t matter how busy one is, I can always find time for a few pins.

I don’t follow a huge amount of people and so it doesn’t take me long to get back to the last point I was at and Pinterest’s iOS apps are such a seamless experience, it’s easy to pick up anywhere – in the airport, on the couch, at a cafe.

So a round-up of lovely pins from the last week or two.

I gave up carbs and I survived it


This is a “keeping it real” kind of post, I thought it might be nice to delve into something different every now and then.

The Mr and I have been altering our eating habits over the past couple of years in an effort to be healthier, eat better and not gain excess pounds [ie. lose weight - but I really hate that phrase ~ I just want to make sure I fit into my clothes!].

We gave up “sugar” a couple of years back and are pretty well on that train, full steam ahead. Now we have carbs in our sights.

We’re not fanatical when it comes to our food choices but within our own control, we watch we eat.

So the past couple of weeks we’ve cut down on bread, rice, pasta, crackers and the like.

This was no mean feat for me ~ and truth be told I don’t know what it was that fateful weekend when I decided “that’s it, no more toast for breakfast”.

I love bread. I love pasta. And for a long time I thought that was the only way to satiate my appetite.

But a couple of weeks in, it’s not as tough as I thought. Lots of salads, protein choices, nuts and cheese are getting me through the day.

But breakfast, breakfast is tough.

This was my breakfast today. Chia pudding with raspberries and a drizzle of rice malt syrup. I’ve long been intrigued by this concoction ~ gotta love Pinterest for times like these  ~ and finally gave it a try.

I love this idea because it’s a prepare the night before, eat in the morning kind of meal. It needs a few tweaks for my liking but I’m feeling full and prepared to give it a go again tomorrow.

Plus chia seeds are full of all kinds of nutrients.

Hey, tomorrow I might even convince the Mr to give it a go!

Got a favourite breakfast idea?

O is for … olives and oregano. One of my favourites.

My run with photo a day continues and bringing together f to s has a nice touchpoint with Mother Nature.

So we are in the home straight now and I do hope I can keep it up.

It’s been lots of fun shooting and editing with the same idea each day and seeing the way the different lights and times of day have affected the finished product.

And thank goodness for daylight saving which allows a little extra time to sneak in a photo!


F is for feather; G is for giraffe; H is for harmonica; I is for inch; J is for jug; K is for key; L is for Lego; M is for matryoshka; N is for Nemo.


P is for pinecone; Q is for questions; R is for Rose; S is for shells.

I’ll admit I’ve preplanned the next few days as I head back into the working week to make sure I keep up to date and pencilled down a few ideas for each letter.

Are you doing photo a day in October? How are you going?
