who'd have thunk it?

Pin It Today was just the darndest day. One of those who would have thunk it days when random strange things happen. It all began with a distinct lack of caffeine.

Yesterday my coffee machine ran out of coffee - I KNOW!!! I can hear you gasp from here. To top it all off? I was stuck at home!!! I honestly wondered if the world was going to end. How was I to get through the day!!!!

Fast forward to today. Standing in the kitchen still hrumphing because I had been silly enough ( probably in my caffeine free cloud) to forget to send hubby for coffee on his way home! When little Miss 4 walks into the kitchen, bag of coffee beans in hand "here you go mum"and walks off.

What the?

On further questioning all I could get was a "they where just here"out of her and an "It wasnt me" from Mr owl. Random or what? whoever you are mystery coffee bean provider - I love you in ways I cannot explain!!

Having enjoyed not one but two delicious freshly ground coffees ( I know I know but i had to make up for yesterday!!) I loaded all 4 children into the car to take them to my brilliant sister in law for their haircuts ( Dani at Tryst for all those playing at home in Perth in need of an awesomely awesome hair stylist!!) When Master 2 who has been slightly backwards in coming forwards when it comes to the spoken word pipes up from the backseat "Scuse me my mum, my have my haircut today to"  I almost crashed the car!!! WHere did that come from?? I KNEW he had it in him!!! little sneaky talker!! and at such a random moment!!

Then to top off my day of weird random events comes my final little quirky story. I have been an avid "pinner" for a while now over at Pinterest ( thankyou for introducing me Mrs Elephant!!) and have to date "pinned" 398 pins on 16 boards. Every so often I get a little email notification - "joe blog has repinned your pin" or "mary whosit has liked your pin" - It excites me a little. I feel a moment of fame - someone liked my pin!!!! yes, I admit - someone ELSE pinned it first but still. THIS IS MY MOMENT!!! it doesnt happen all that often so you can imagine my surprise this afternoon when I logged into my email and had FIVE PAGES of notifications - 162 people ( and counting)  have repinned my pin!!! what the??? What on earth could I possibly have pinned that 162 other people would pin as well?

wanna see?

Yep!!! random or what?? I have pinned so many cool tutprials, crafty things, awesome pictures, inspirational quotes, laughs - you name it! and what do 162 other people choose to pin? How to grow an avocado tree!!

who'd have thunk it?

Thought of the moment: ( a just for fun! )
