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
If we were having coffee : I would have to admit that I have been preoccupied with the plight of my friend’s daughter who has been in and out of a psychiatric unit like a yoyo in the past fortnight. It has been a roller coaster for my friend, her other daughter and for the husband and myself. Trips to and from the unit, not being allowed to see the patient or even call without express permission from the patient . Even my friend could not get any information about her daughter unless she had allowed it first.
My friend has two daughters both beautiful bright young women and I have known them since they were little girls of about 6yrs and 8yrs repectively. So it has been a an awful and deep shock to see the younger daughter now 21yrs fall apart, in what looks like a fortnight. It was even worse for her mum who also had no idea there were any problems.
The sad facts are that she has been suffering for a long time, she has been self harming and covering her misery for ages. None of us knew none of us had any idea.
If we were having coffee : I would tell you that I have had my second eldest sister on my mind too. She has been in hospital since 24th April , she went in to have a heart operation, a double bypass and double valve replacement . Well since then she has developed an infection in the wound in her leg from where they took the veins use in the operation and somehow she has a bone infection in her chest, there has been a long catalogue of setbacks that have befallen her but the fact remains she is still very unwell and any prayers you may have to say for her would be appreciated.
If we were having coffee : I would ask if you would like more tea, coffee and cake? We have plenty and all is calorie free!
If we were having coffee : I feel I should lighten the tone of this post so lets see? Monday the husband and I went into town to do some shopping ( clothes shopping ) well we parked a 15min walk from the shops. Not a problem it was a warm day ….. well we only had 2hr parking so half an hour would be walking to and from the shops, leaving an hour and a half to pick, try on and pay for the goods. We accomplished that …. rather rushed but done. On the way back to the car the heavens opened up and boy did it rain. We got soaked to the skin!
Tuesday back at the gym then housework , ironing and trip to hospital with my friend , mentioned above. She and her daughter stayed for dinner.
Wednesday Core Lesson at the gym, then take friend’s daughter back to hospital, in the afternoon I met my gym buddy for a coffee and a chat, we arranged to go into town the next day ….. so I could change most of the clothes I had so hastily bought on the Monday!
Thursday after the gym my buddy and I caught the bus into town and took our time I changed my hastily picked goods for more suitable and better fitting ones, she also bought some tops and three pairs of shoes. Then it started to rain and we got soaked …. for me again! We went and had a cuppa and a cake in a department store, by then we had dried out and so had the weather so we carried on to the Apple store where my friend had some queries to sort out! After which we caught the bus home.
Soaked twice in one week, not very fair! So Friday I had the new drive again to the Pilates class, which I found with no problem at all I did not get even slightly lost in either direction and really enjoyed the class. Busy afternoon and evening.
Today was special because the Newbie and his Daddy came for lunch and we had a lovely time with lots of giggling and fun!!
If we were having coffee : I wowuld say it is time for garden round up!

Okay well that is about all there is time for this week so
If we were having coffee : I would ask if I can fill up your cup, or glass or get you anything else to eat it is all calorie free!
