It is If we were having  Coffee  time  again how  are  you all  and  what  have  you been up  to this  week!

So  come in it is lovely  to see you all here again. The fires are lit  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea on  the go  and the cakes and sweets are all set out.  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.

If we were having  Coffee: I would ask  you what  has been going on in your world this week, has  anything  deeply affected  you, have  you need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry  on or  just  needed someone  to make  you laugh! If  yes  feel free to talk it out  here  with us. We will all help if  we can.

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster  

If  we  were  having  coffee : I’d  tell you  that I have just  done  another ‘ 1000 voices for  compassion ‘ TanGental he  did  two posts  on Bullying ,

The politics of the playground #1000speak @1000speak


Plastic Bottles and the Kaiser – a plea #1000speak @1000speak

This  second  post by Tangental  reminded  me of  my  very favourite   videos.   Andrea Bocelli  Canto  della terra.

and  my  post  on  bullying  was

1000 Voices Speak for Compassion : Bullying

If we  were having Coffee: I would  offer  you another  cuppa  and perhaps  some cake?  Go  on  it is  all calorie  free!

It has been a very  busy  week this  week I have  been out  to lunch  with a  friend, to the  gym  four times, not  as  much fun as usual as  my  gym buddy   is  still away.

The  husband  has been out  two days  running  out  lunching  with  old  work  friends . It is  good  to see him  going out  as I hope it is  a sign  that  he is on the mend .

If we were having coffee: I tell you  that on Friday I got to see  the Newbie. His  other  Grandma  was babysitting  him  and  she invited  me round  to  see him. I was delighted  to accept. I was  a little upset  that he wanted  to cling  to his other Grandma  more  than me  but  then he sees  more of her  and so knows him better! Anyway I loved  seeing him even if I did not  get  many cuddles . It  is  his birthday  next month ! Yes  the Newbie  will be one year old. Where has that year gone. We have been invited  to a tea  party  and I have already  accepted on my and the husbands  behalf!

Do you know  he is crawling  at  the speed of light  and and is eager  to stand up. His other Grandma  has two cats  one  that  is  very  good with the Newbie  and one  that just  goes out! .. I can’t  say I blame  him I would not  want  my  tail pull and  my  face  poked!

If  we were having  Coffee: I would  ask you if  you are comfortable  and  could I  get you anything ? Today  we are  visiting  our  eldest sun ,  he lives near  the sea on the east coast. The  husband is  helping  him fix  his bath….. the husband  is fixing his bath!  We are going out  to eat  when  he finishes . The  weather  was lovely  when we left  home  but  as we neared  the coast  it  got dark  and dull and there was some  rain…. He  ho!

Solar Eclipse 2015

If  we were having  Coffee:  I’d  as if  you saw the solar  eclipse  this week, unfortunately  it was  so cloudy  were we live  we did not see a thing. It  did get  dark  but  it  didn’t  go as dark as night , disappointing really. Wales , Cornwall  and  the Isle  of Lewis  had  spectacular  views!

here are  some  good  views of  the event  here  are some  more.

Well as  I  am out  today  visiting  I had  better  wrap up  now  or  they will say I am unsociable !!

If  we were having Coffee:  I would  say lets  go and see  how  Paul  and his crowd  are doing . I am sure  that  they will have lots to tell us !

And of course  the

    I think as he gets past the 1 year mark, the Newbie will have enough love and cuddles for both grandmas and grandpas, Willow. He’s just a little guy now, he can’t help his cuddle proportions. 😉 Have a great week, my friend.
