On a Monday I can still remember the fun I had over the weekend, Wednesday is the middle of the work week, on Thursday I start getting hopeful and on a Friday I can taste the weekend. But what about a Tuesday? It’s so…. just there. Weekend memories are too far away and the upcoming weekend might as well be a year away.

What we need is a bit of colourful inspiration to get us going on a Tuesday, don’t you think? A pretty picture, beautiful scenery or colourful imagery. Yup, that’ll liven up Tuesdays and turn it into a terrific day!

From now on I will go through my photos and Pinterest likes every Tuesday and find us a pretty picture to add colour and joy to the day.


This morning I visited Boeresjiek (which translates to Farmer Chic) in Brackenfell, South Africa* with my oldest and dearest artist & interior decorator friend Tia Gerber. We’ve known each other for 24 years. She’s one of those people I can meet up with today and we just pick up where we left off when I last saw her in September 2010. I just love her to bits and she just gets me.



If you are ever in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, you should really visit this huge space filled with the most amazing decor items. You could spend hours just browsing, but you’re bound to walk out with a little something and you will definitely want to sit down for Red Velvet Cheesecake or Carrot Cake, or both, like Tia and I did.


*I’ve been on holiday in Cape Town since Friday and I’ll be returning to the UK on Sunday so it’s short, but very sweet, holiday with my friends and family.

Wishing you all a Terrific Tuesday.
