Alice, Alice who the hell is Alice?
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.
Lets join everyone here and all the other “IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEES”
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
Well you will have to excuse me if I am dashing around and out of breath! So lets sit down here in the easy chairs! I have been busy again this week and to be honest it all seem a bit of a blurrrrrrrr!! Monday was housework, gym, more housework and I had to escape early evening and just go for a walk ! It was a lovely evening and I just wandered the long way around the local area and surveyed gardens and fileds!
If we were having Coffee: Tuesday the hubby and I were invited over to his Mum’s and we also picked up my honourary sister ( ex sister in law and great friend since I was thirteen ) and her grandaughter on the way over. This is one of the mother in laws great great gandchildren, she also has great, great, great, grandchildren!! Well she is 95yrs….. when the Newbie arrived she was pleased but not as enthusiastic as I was. She informed me she was used to it as she had so many!……
Well we all had a lovely day I was surpised it was warm and sunny and we had a pizza and salad lunch followed by strawberries, meringues and cream! We played a game where we had a name put on our forhead and we asked questions untill we worked out who we were! I was Queen Victoria.
If we were having Coffee: The sunflowers I bought last Saturday are looking amazing! they are adorning the conservatory right now, so far they have been in the kitchen and the living room. Travelling sunshine, a movable feast. Friday the husband was up in London all day out for lunch with other retired collegues of his. I dropped him off to catch his bus then set off on a magical mystery tour! My Pilates teacher has moved fro my local gym to another one ( same chain) but not to far. It was somewhere I had never had reason to vist so it was a bit of an adventure! The hubby had been over the route with me but I did manage to get lost twice!! ( on ,off then on again the motorway!!) but that said I just kept calm and did not panic and I found it in the end!!
The lessen was great and I drove home feeling relaxed and fit!
If we were having Coffee: Our middle son is on holiday abroad with friends right now and even though he is a grown man of 40yrs I was uneasy until he rang to say he had arrived! …you never let them go as my friend at socialbridge will attest in her lovely blog here
Would you like more tea or coffee or some cake? do help yourselves it is all calorie free!
Guess what sheridegrom – From the literary and legislative trenches ( well worth a visit) is here and has offered to make a homemade batch of chocolate scones (the old fashioned way) and bring along a couple of her favorite US wines. Now isn’t that kind, thanks Sheri!
If we were having coffee : I would ask Tangental what he thought of the cricket and did he enjoy it or did he blink!! We actually thrashed the Australians and boy are they upset! read here! and here Rejoice Geoffle!!
