IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: ANZAC DAY, DAFFODILS, TOMATOES AND CHAT

If  we  were having  Coffee  :  time  again to ask how  are  you all are   and  what  have  you been up  to this  week!  Come in it is lovely  to see you all here again. The fires are lit and  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  

Right  now I am exhausted  it has  been a  busy  day  set  at  the end of  a very  busy  week! I am not  really  sure  where  to start!

Yesterday  was Anzac Day, and  there  was  a  full day’s  worth  of  Remembrance for  those who  fell .  Read  here.  Princess Anne  her  husband  , the  Queen  and Prince  Philip  all took part  in  the services  today,  read  here . Prince  Charles  and Camilla  traveled  to Anzac  Cove  to  lay a wreath read  more  here .

THANK  YOU  TO ALL ANZACS

Sunny Daffs

If  we  were  having  Coffee  : I would  tell  you  that  our  tomatoes are  growing  well  and  soon  they  will be  ready   to  put out  into  grow bags! I have  also  put up  a photo  of  my  beloved  Daffodils. I  do  love  them  so for  their  colour  the  freshness  and  their  hopefulness!  There is  not  enough  hope  in this  world  that  we cannot  enjoy  the  sunny  Daffodils.

The Rockery

If  we  were having  Coffee:  I wold  share  with  you some  photos  of  my  week of  the unseasonable  sunshine  and  the  joys  of  nature! All  this  month  I  have  been  very  busy  keeping up  with  April A  to Z  Challenge   which I  had  decided  not  to  do  but  when it  came  to the  crunch I  could  not , not  pick  up  the baton  and  run  so  all  this  months  I have been  writing  a  Nonet  to  correspond  to  the  letters  of  the alphabet yesterdays  was V  and  with it  being  Saturday it  was  conjoined  with LindaGHill‘s  SoCs  with  the prompts  being  Very or  Vary  or  derivatives there of!

It  has  been  fun  but very  hard , finding  a  subject  each  day  beginning  with  the letter  of  the day  has  been hard  but I have  done  my  very  best!

If  we  were having coffee : I  would  replenish  your  cup  and off you  a cake…

Coffee and cake

I  do like  the  though  of  chocolate  and strawberry  cake! What  type  of cake  do  like  best ? Do  let  me  know  even  send  a photo  or  recipe  or  even  both ! I  could  display  them  next  week.

Now it is  getting  very  late   and I  need  to get  to bed  so I  am setting  this  up  now  to  go out  tomorrow  which is in  a few  minutes  time !I  need  my  sleep  and I have  to admit  that  I am very  tired  so I shall have  to  bid  you all farewell  for  now  and look forward  to seeing  you all again  next  week!

Okay  lets  all go  and join  Paul  and his  guests  now  for  a  chat  and  more  coffee!

And of course  the

    The garden looks awesome and your tomato plants healthy. Nothing like a sun kissed tomato straight from the garden to a sandwich in your kitchen.
    Wish you a good upcoming week, Willow.

    I love all the garden pictures and I don’t think I have ever seen daffodils that color! They’re beautiful! I agree with you on A to Z. It has been much more difficult than I thought it would be. Perhaps I should have bowed out when I found out I was having surgery this month. I’m glad I didn’t though. It has been difficult but it has kept me focused on at least putting up my daily posts. I fell behind a few days but I’m all caught up now!

    Love the pictures of your garden, beautiful. I think my favourite type of cake has to be either chocolate, or lemon drizzle cake. Might attempt to make one this week. I’m not sure it will be calorie free though. Thanks for the coffee 🙂

      Well it a pleasure to have you join us for coffee. It is a shame that only the cakes here are calorie free. I also love lemon drizzle cake, perhaps you could bring some for next weeks coffee morning!!
