Come on  in  it is nice  to  sit  and  have a  chat  after  all  the  hustle  and  bustle  of  the past  few days.   I  can  still entertain  you  all  with 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  say  welcome  and  do  come on  in , find  a  seat  and  help yourselves  to  what  ever  you fancy. It  has been a  very  busy  week  with  Just Jot  It  January    nearly into  it’s third  week and  all organized  by  the  extremely talented Linda G Hill   over  at  Life in Progress . It  has  been  very interesting  and  not  without it’s  trials! Worth  checking out  so  many talented  people  joining in!

If we  were having Coffee:  It  has  also been  a very  busy  week  in  the  real  world  too  where  I have  been  busy  getting  back  to  normal  after Christmas  and New Year! Back  to Pilates, this  term  with  a new class  and instructor. The  new  instructor  is  very  different  to  the previous  one, but I  do like  her so  watch  this  space. Also  it  was back  to  core  class. After  two months off  it  was  extremely hard!   Still I am   determined  to get  back into  my  routine   and  my  gym  buddy  L  is  up  for it  too!

If we  were having Coffee:  I  would  ask  you  would  you like  another  coffee  or  something  to eat? Today  is  a  busy  Sunday  as  we have  the hubby’s  mother  coming  over and  we  are taking her  out  to lunch. Not  only  that  but  I  have  a  coffee  morning  with  the  girls  I  used  to  work  with . There  is a  monthly  Sunday  Morning  gathering  at  one or  the  other  coffee  shops in  the  town. It  is  always  a  noisy  and  fun  affair  with lots  of  news  and  catching up  to  do!

If we  were having Coffee: It  has  been  a  busy  week  with  our middle  son  finally  deciding   to  sort out  the  many  boxes  he has been  storing in our  garage  for years! This has involved  him making  many trips  to  the local  municipal dump! Unfortunately  for  me  he has  found  lots  of  his  clothes  that  he had  thought  he  had  lost  and  so  who  has  been  suckered  in to  washing  drying  and ironing  them??? Well he  does have  the  biggest  brown eyes!!

 If we  were  having  Coffee:  I would  have  to  say  we  are  all  sill  waiting  patiently   for  our  dear  Paul  Curran   to  rejoin us here at  the  coffee  share   but  until he is  well enough  and up  and  running again  we  shall  have  to  bide our  time!

For  now  everyone  Be  well  and  happy!

THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE 


I have  seen  this  film  three  times  and  read  the  book. It  is  such  a great  story . It  is  about  Henry DeTamble  who  has  a  genetic abnormality  which  causes  him  to  time travel  without  any warning.  Stress  is  a  huge  factor  in  his  time  jumps. He  cannot  predict, when, where  or  even  whether  he travels  forward  or  backwards.

The  film starts  when  Henry  meets  Clare Abshir, his  future  wife  in  a Library. Clare  knows  who he is  because  he  has  been visiting  her  since  her  childhood…… when he  travels cannot take  anything  with  him so  arrives  naked …this  as you can imagine  causes  all sorts of  problems.

On one of his  visits  he  gives  Clare  a  list  of  dates  and times  of  future  visits  so  she can  leave him  food  and  clothes.

Henry  wins  over  Clare’s  close  friends  and  confides in them  his problem. Clare  and Henry get  married , even  the  wedding is  not unaffected  with  an older Henry  turning up  to  Marry  Clare as  the young one has  traveled.   Clare never  get  used to Henry’s disappearances but  she  does  accept  them.   She  spends  most of  her life  waiting for him  to  either  disappear or  return.

Clare  becomes  pregnant  but  it  appears  the  baby  is  time travelling  too  and  she  miscarries, sadly  this  happens  many  times.   Henry has a  vasectomy  to end their suffering. Soon after, Clare gets pregnant one last time – by a visiting younger version of Henry this  time  she  carries  full term. They  have a daughter  called  Alba. Alba  can time travel  too.

Alba, when  she is  about  10 years  old  travels  back  to help  her  5 year old  self  prepare  for  her  father’s  death.

Henry  travels  to  Chicago in winter  and  cannot  find  clothes  or  shelter  quickly  enough  and  gets  frostbite  on his  return  to his  present  he has  to have  both feet  amputated …. this  does  not  bode  well  for  any  future  jumps.

Eventually Henry time travels and is accidentally shot by Clare’s father while hunting elk. Henry returns in time to die in Clare’s arms. Some years later, a younger Henry later visits Alba and Clare, giving Clare hope that he will visit again, but he tells her not to spend her life waiting for him, hoping this encounter would provide a proper closure between them.  The  book  ends  slightly  differently.

There is  a great  deal  more  to this  story, Henry’s  childhood,  the effects on his parents, friends, even how his older self  helps  the  younger self . I just  don’t  want  to  tell  you  too much!

A beautiful  story  well worth  reading  the book  or  seeing  the  film .
