IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: NANO POBLANO DAY 30

Well there  you all are  welcome, come on in it is lovely  to see you! We have decided  that as  we are not  putting a tree or  decorations up  this  year ( in the real world )   that I could  put up Christmas  decorations in our virtual one! …all I want! So here we go!

If we were having Coffee . Come on in the fires are lit  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea and the cakes and sweets are set out. Paul  and  his guests  are all here  and they are enjoying  the warmth  and food and drinks. We  have  tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you .

What  can I get you, how about  some Christmas cake?  They  do look good  don’t  they, Holly

and Penguins.

If  we were having coffee:  I would  say  I need to think hard  about positives and happy things  because I am low , but hey you don’t  want to know that!

More coffee or tea anyone  or shall we go mad  and have a drink ..why  not  lets  get hung for a sheep as a lamb!

If  we were having coffee:  I ‘d say  there were some high spots in the week where I managed to forget  the real world. The visit to Canterbury  and West Gate on Sea was wonderful  and the husband and I  were bowled over  by the fabulous Cathedral! We spent three hours wandering around  this wonderful palace of God.

It was not  hard  to see  why the pilgrims of  the 10th century  and forward  were amazed  by the sights. They  must of  felt  they were in the entrance  to heaven. It was  so other worldly  and huge  how on earth did they  manage  to build it  , if  you are interested  you can find out here! .

  1. It is the cathedral of the Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of the Church of England and symbolic leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Its formal title is the Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of Christ at Canterbury. Founded in 597, the cathedral was completely rebuilt from1070 to 1077. read  more about it here.
    The  Next day  we met up  with friends  we have known for 48 yrs…that is a long time isn’t it ! We sat around chatting  all day then in the evening we went out for a meal.. then drove home , a two hour drive , well worth every mile!
    If  we were having coffee:   I would ask if  you would  like to see some more Cathedral photos. You really  do not  have any  choice  here they are ready or  willing or  not!

    If  we were having coffee:  I would  tell  you how behind I am with  Christmas preparations, no  decs  or tree  this year  so really  it is just cards and pressies . So far I have only  written about  10 cards  which means at least another 200 to go! 😦  So  after  I have finished  this  I will really  have to  set to and get them written  today.

    Carrot Cake

    If we were having coffee: I offer  you another  cuppa  and ask you what  has happened in your world  this week? If  you are American  you will have celebrated  Thanks Giving. I do hope  you have had a wonderful  time. It  has been a long  week packed  with busy things. I even managed  afternoon  tea with a friend . That was fun we took a bus  to the nearest town  and had tea and  naughty  cake !

    Well I do need  to go now  so I will apologise  for for  not being  myself  and probably  just rambling ! I promise I am going  to pull my socks up  and sort myself out! No one likes  a miserable  toad so I am not  going to be one!!IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  I would say  lets  go and see what Paul’s  guest are up to lets  all mix  and have fun.  I would ask you if you would  like another  cuppa, or  another cake . !   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/

    Wow Willow, those photos are amazing. Both the pics of Canterbury and the Christmas cakes and decorations. Love the photo of the fireplace and tree – it looks so inviting. The cakes made my mouth water. Please include some more Christmas photos in future posts/ I love decorations and Christmas trees – the more the better. It is one of my favorite things about the season – the decorations and cheerful presentation. (And of course the cakes and cookies – Yum!) I truly hope that things get better for you and tthat maybe you are allowed a few decorations anyway. Hang in there Willow, we’re all supporting you. 🙂

    Love the decorations. Feels so relaxing and Christmasy and the fireplace is toasty.

    Hope you feel more like yourself soon. It’s energy sapping to be so dragged down. ❤ ❤

    Your photos are outstanding and the cathedral magnificent. I can't believe it only took seven years to build. 😮 Amazing.
