IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE : AUTUMN DOGS NEWBIE FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

Welcome here we are in October already. Who stole the rest of the year where has it gone! Paul and I are so glad that you could make it here today . Come on in we have the coffee and the cakes all ready the heaters are on and the Marquee is all warmed up. The sofas and armchairs all have their cushions all plumped up! So go on spoil yourselves we have stocked up on hot chocolate now and brought in some good books for you to read too! I can hear Paul has all his guest here many of whom you will know so lets see, what have you been up to this week.IF

WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I’d tell you it has been another busy week here. My sister has been into hospital and had an operation I have been very concerned for her but I am very glad to tell you all that the operation has been a success and she is now recuperating at home, taking things easy and doing her physio! Actually I do not know what to make of my sisters ! Another one is recovering from shingles and pleurisy together, yes together she never does anything by halves! My eldest sister not to left out is having heart problems I really need a magic wand to make then all better! OH! I have two brothers too and one of then is having serious problems with his leg! As far as I know brother number two is doing okay and on a holiday! ( Vacation to our American and Canadian friends)

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask if any of you remember Cat Forsley she had a blog on wordpress . She is a music maker and is in a musical partnership with Ashton Price known as “The City Rumbles Underneath “ they have made several videos . Cat stopped her blog a while back because she was so busy with music and commitments that she just could not cope , I kept her email address and kept in touch occasionally. Well imagine my delight when Wednesday morning while I was at the gym I looked up at the screen and saw ” The City Rumbles Underneath” Hearts Expire come up on the screen. I was so excited I stopped my treadmill and rushed over to tell some of the friends also at the gym that I know that singer I know Cat!

I emailed her and told her the news she was delighted and she also said they were having more success over her in the UK than in their home Canada.
Here is the video I saw at the gym.

If any of  you remember and want  to contact Cat  here are some of her places  http://catforsley.me   http://asthecityrumblesunderneath.com

Thursday’s Pal

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE I would tell you that I had a good afternoon on Thursday visiting a friend  who was at home doing a 4 day  dog sitting stint  for her son  while he was away . We  spent a lovely afternoon chatting and   looking after this charming if not huge  chap! He kept us very  busy demanding we play  ball with  him! Such a lovely  dog only  one problem he likes  to nibble, your  arms, your legs! Only  gentle  tiny  nibbles  but at 20 months old  and  with sharp  teeth he did manage to bruise my arm!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE Ask you if you’d like another cuppa  or another  slice of cake or biscuit even, they are  all home made and totally calorie free! Everything here is!
Friday was Pilates  then shopping and cooking  nothing special  but Saturday  well ! The Newbie, my son and his wife, visiting  my friend and her hubby and dogs, a walk by the river followed by a glorious sunset  are some of my favourite  things  and to get them all in one day is just so wonderful.
The Newbie  and parents  came round for lunch, they tried out the high chair  and cot we had procured. The husband  had lovingly painted  up the cot and  I  had cleaned  up high chair.   Both were a success ! After they left  the husband picked  some of our crop of tomatoes then we headed over  to see our friends  and their lovely dogs, when we left there  we went for a walk along the river . It was lovely in the late afternoon, Autumn sun glinting off of  the river. Then on our way  home  we saw  some amazing  skies!   Here are some photos!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask you if you would  like another  cuppa, or  another cake . I’d  tell you I have really  come to enjoy  these chats  and I’d  love  to hear  what you would  tell me. Please feel free to stay  as long  as  you like  and don’t  forget  to visit  Paul’s  post  now  while  you are  here!   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/

    Awesome post Willow! Just chock full of news and visits and newbies and dogs (is that black one a black Labrador? The ears look it.). I wish the very best for your family and hope they get well soon. It sounds like you had a busy Saturday indeed. I listened to Cat’s song and I really liked it. I haven’t heard it here in Canada yet but it sure sounds like a top 10.

    Great post Willow. Thank you so much for sharing.

    I’m not a dog person by any stretch, but that black dog is handsome.
    Sorry to hear about what ails everyone in your family. Hope resolutions are soon.
    Loved the tunes. Thank you. I don’t know this singer but enjoyed your selection. 😛

    What a lovely tribute to sweet Cat
    I know that I don’t see her on my
    Space anymore but that doesn’t
    mean that I have forgotten what
    a very dear friend she used to be
    and I wish her very well 🙂

    She is brilliant isn’t she Willowdot? 🙂

    If we were having coffee I would
    probably like a few biscuits Willowdot
    but I would be sharing them with
    you my sweet and lovely friend 🙂 😉
