Hello everyone welcome to the garden we have a marquee and heaters, all the garden furniture has been washed and I have put out cushions for your comfort.
Well what do you think shall we chance it . Now as always 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: Well it has been a very busy week again, tell me please where has half of this year gone ??
Well settle down with your drinks and cakes and I shall tell you about the big plan! What I hear you asking? Right the hubby has suggested we have a new kitchen and I actually agree! Even though it will mean a lot of upheaval it will be worth it. So far we have waded through the catalogue of the manufacter that we have chosen. We have picked the unit and narrowed the colour scheme down to three colours ( Ivory, sage or light blue) . We have spent hours choosing which white goods we want and also spent ages researching cooker hoods.
We have decided to have the hob on a central island which means the extracter hood will be suspended above said hob! Well I hae to apologise for all the slips of paper with drawings on and the catalogues strewn all over the place ! move them out the way and make yourselves comfortable…. watch this spot.
If we were having Coffee : My gym buddy and I have been working very hard this week and we have signed up for another course of extra lessons to see us through to the end of the year !
Can I refill your cup or get you a calorie free treat we have some gorgeous cakes this week.
If we were having coffee: I would draw your attantion to Paul’s blog this week it is exstremely thought provoking, do read it believe me you will not regret it! If we were having coffee: I tell you that the garden is doing fine but I have no photos today because I just have not had time to take any this week Hooray I hear you all shouting!! … But hey I have some lovely photos of some of my flowers!
Now I have to admit I do not know what the yellow flower is called but isn’t it lovely!!
If we were having coffee: I have to go to bed now as I have to be up early as we are off to see the Newbie early tomorrow!
Once again I thank you all for visiting me and Paul too we love to see you and hear what you have to say and we hope you will join us again next week! Hugs to you all! Do all stay and be comfortable we love to see you all.

Love those photos!
Not bad eh??
Great photos Willow. I googled your yellow flower and it is called Hypericum calycinum or Rose of Sharon or Aaron’s Beard. Very beautiful pictures Willow.
Amazing looking kitchen Willow. Renovations can be trying but the end result will be wonderful. Your choices are very attractive. You know I was watching a reno show the other day and they had put the cook top in the island as well. They had a ventilation system that raised out of the island when the cook top was in use. Then it retracted back out of sight when not in use. Wolf makes professional quality appliances in North America – here’s their version of what is known as a “downdraft ventilator” http://www.subzero-wolf.com/wolf/range-hood#/Downdrafts
Thanks for looking the flower up for me, I like Aaron’s Beard best! We looked at the wolf retracting hob lovely but a tad over the top … Still looking so watch this space! 😉
OMG, have you not learned anything from my recent posts about household renovations? They. are. absolute. HELL!
But if your kitchen actually ends up looking like that, it will be well worth it. I’m loving my “new” house, despite the grief we went through for those couple of weeks.
Good luck, Willow.
I know, I should know better we have been there before and the memory lives on! Plus I have heeded your words but madness wins out. I am delighted to hear that all your travails were well and truly worth it?! 🙂
Yes, truly worth every penny. We still have some things to do – like painting the new window frames and putting curtains up, but that’s minor.
It is always worth it in the end
Wish I could join … 🙂
All the best and a happy and joyful Sunday!
You already have joined, pull up a chair let’s have another coffee 🙂 xx
May be you accept this small token of Old German Apple Pie? 🙂
Oh! thank you I love apple pie, all apple pie regardless of its age or nationality! Are you joining me. 🙂
Just searching for my travel documents … 😀
Hooray look forward to seeing you soon. 😉
Checking airline departures … 🙂
lovely; wish it wasn’t November here though!
Yes sudden drop in degrees! Definitely winter vests on. 😉
Willow, I wish you well with the kitchen. I’d love a new one but without the hassle.
I think the yellow flower is Hypericum ~ that’s if it’s on a bush/shrub.
You and Tess have both come up with the same name for the flower and I think you are both right!! If only we could wave a magic wand !!
WOW a new kitchen..a major decision………..and your yellow flower looks like the flower on a Hypericum shrub. I hope you had a happy visit with the Newbie!!!!!!
Yes a major decision indeed! We had a lovely time with the Newbie will send you some photos!!
I do think you and hubby deserve that dream kitchen, Willow! And I hope your visit with the Newbie was grand, too. ❤
The visit to the Newbie wa lovely thank you!!
