It we were having Coffee at Gene’O’s place!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: 

Well this  is so nice of you Gene’O  inviting us  all over  to yours  for a coffee , I am really pleased to accept  not least  of all because I have been doing  the Sunday, ‘If we were having coffee’ along  with your  Diana , who is part of your  group  at  partimemonsters  for  a good  few  weeks  now. Recently Paul Curran  blogger extraordinaire of  no fixed  blog  has been making use of  my garden  to hold  a coffee gathering  and meeting of  minds. So if it is Okay  we will join you and all your  other  guests!

I do like  what  you have done with the place Gene’O  it is very, very  you! It feels odd  to be sitting here instead of handing cups and cakes  to he the guest.

Okay  what’s been happening  this week so IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  blogging  wise,   Johncoyote got  me up on to my  soap box  and  I dug  up  some old posts  and wrote  a new one or  two  on the subject  of how badly we are treating  our beautiful plant. Taking  her for granted, burning and deforesting her, raging  wars on her belly  and her back  killing  not only each other   but all her flora and fauna  and any poor creatures trapped in the war machine’s  way! Mining, covering her  with  concrete so she bleeds  and is starved of air. Time is running out  and we are  the only ones who can do anything to save  mother earth/ mother nature  for our  children  and our children’s children!

Oh! you have all gone quiet, I got up on my  soap box  didn’t I …..sorry I did mean  to get carried away! I am not a raving loony  honest!

New Shoes

New Shoes

Right I  am embarrassed, what else  … IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would  tell you that on  Wednesday  I went shopping  with  my  friend . I needed shoes, thanks  to a bunion  on  my left  foot I now appear  to have difficulty  finding  shoes that  do not  hurt!

So we  went off  in search of sensible  shoes.  It was a hard  job  but  someone had to do it!  Was it a successful trip I hear  you asking.

New Dress

New Dress

I  managed to buy three pairs of sensible wide fitting shoes  that did not look too awful!  Not  to mention  a pair of pretty platform sandals….. well they were in the sale  and so pretty. I also bought  a lovely floaty pink and  white polka dot dress it was not on the shopping list  but it is also very pretty, also not on the list was an outfit  for the Newbie, buy outfits  for the Newbie well that just goes without saying!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would  tell you  that while I was at Pilates on Friday  my  phone  rang  and it was my  youngest  son asking  me  where I was, at pilates,  I replied, where is dad,  he asked  he is not  answering  his phone, polishing  my  car I replied  OH!  he  said  we are  coming to visit  you ! Hooray I  thought  returning to pilates  excited  about  an extra chance  to see  the Newbie  and his mum and dad! It  was lovely  to see them  they were on their way out to lunch  but  it is always lovely  to see them flying visit  or not!

 

strange flowers

Today after my  core  class  we went over  to see them , two  days in a row  such  a treat! We  spent  the afternoon gardening, while I was tiding up one  of  the flower  beds I spotted  these  fabulous  flowers  does  anyone  know  what  they are ? I certainly  do not recognize them. I have had  a lovely  time  with my husband, my youngest son  and his family.

Now  just  before I go IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would  ask if you remember  me telling  you that I have been looking after   our friends cats  while  they are away on holiday. The cats  have been staying with us  for 3weeks so far. Well they are lovely  cats, house cats  which  means  we are not allowed  to let them out at  all. Well I have to report  that  they are very mischievous animals. One of them has made several escape  attempts  luckily  we have foiled  them all! ( so far) , here are some photos of them at play!

Kissy kissy

Kissy kissy

Well all that remains is f0r  me to say thank  you  to Gene’O for having  us  we have  aha  a lovely time!

        Thank you, but, my waistline couldn’t possibly stand it; I’m stretching my belt as it is…. One has to be enough, the doc says…. I wish I could, though, it’s lovely cake… Perhaps a bit more tea?….

        😉

        Okay tea it is but every cake is absolutely calorie free here in the garden and that applies to Gene’O’s cakes too. 🙂 xx

    Thanks for the compliment on the new blog 🙂 and I love that last image of the coffee with the eye.

    I don’t mind a little soapboxing now and then. I do it myself from time to time. I think we’re probably passed a tipping point on the environmental stuff (not that we shouldn’t take steps to do better) and some massive environmental changes in the next century are inevitable whether we like it or not. The sea level is going to rise and there’s nothing we can do about it, I believe. Of course I could be wrong – I’m not exactly a geoscientist – but I don’t think I am.

    I appreciate you and Paul joining the linkup.

    Cool post Willow. It must be so good to be seeing the Newbie regularly. Those are neat flowers you pointed out but I have no knowledge of gardening.

    I’m glad to see that your furry visitors are enjoying their visit! I’m a cat lover although I don’t have any at the moment.

    Thanks for the coffee Willow and Gene’O and your Lemon Drozzle cake is to die for.

      Thank you Paul I am never sure if thoughts and moments from my every day are of any interest but they seem well received. 🙂 It is great to see the Newbie especially the odd unexpected visit. The cats are a source of amusement but very demanding of attention. I am so please you enjoy coming here and I am so pleased to see your posts going from strength to strength. Xx
