If we were having coffee:Deaths, classes visits


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


Do join in

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  have  to  say  what  a sad  week  this has been  in the  music  and  entertaining  world . Both David Bowie  and Alan Rickman  dying  of cancer  at  the  age of  69yrs with  just a  few  days between  them.

David Bowie  was a huge influence  and icon  to  me in my  youth  and  still was up until his death. His music, clothes, lyrics are  what have coloured  many  decades of  my life. Enough  has been  said  about  him  to  fill several books  so I  shall let his  music  speak  for him!



He was my hero.

Alan Rickman  a  wonderful   actor  who  went  from  stage  to  screen, Shakespeare to  the  silver screen with ease. Truly,deeply, madly, Die Hard, Harry Potter, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves  to name but  a few!

Truly  he  was  a lovely  man.

If we  were  having  coffee :   I would  offer  you  another  cuppa  or  a  treat  of  some kind  would  you  like  something  stronger  maybe  it  is  very  cold here  today we  even  woke up  to  snow and  the  temperature  is   a very  chilly  2c/ 36 F so  come on  lets  get  nearer  the fire.

What  have  you  been up  to  this  week .  I have  been very  busy  shopping and housework. I have been  to  the new  class of  Pilates  again  and  this  week  my  friend  L  came  with  me  she  found it  very  hard  but  also  excellent   so we  shall both  be  doing  the  course  together. As for  my  core  class on Saturday  …my  that  is  so hard . I think  the two months  plus I was  away  from the gym is taking it’s toll. I am hoping  for improvement  soon!


If we were having coffee: Sadly  I  still have  not  got  to see Star Wars yet! I don’t  think  there is  much  chance  of  me seeing it  this week either. Monday  the  men are coming  to  refit one of  our kitchen worktops (  they have  made  a  holy  mess of  the  long run under  the window  and  put  an abysmal joint  by  the sink! Right in  eye line as  you  enter  the kitchen). Also  I have  a scan  at  11am and  so  the  hubby  will have  to  stay home  and  make  sure  all goes  well in  the kitchen. In the  afternoon  hubby  has  to take his  mother  for  a hospital  appointment so I  shall be on  workman supervision  if they  have not finished  the task!  Tuesday is  a possible  but  Wednesday  is Pilates  in  the morning  and  we have  a funeral  to  attend  in the  afternoon. Thursday  we have  an upholsterer   coming  to fix  one  of our  sofas.  I am annoyed  about  this  as we have not had  these  a year  yet  and  the stitching  is  coming apart  on a part of  the sofa  we hardly  ever sit on!! Friday  though I  am looking forward  to as  hubby  and I  are  going  for a  tour of  Parliament  !! WOOHOO ! a  day  in London.

So Star Wars   has  to wait and  goodness only  knows when I  shall get  to  see  The  Danish Woman!

If we were having  coffee:   I would  ask  you  how  your  blogging has been  this  week I  have  been very  busy  as it  is  still January and January means  Just Jot It January. This is  run  by  LindaGHill  it  is  hard  but I  do  enjoy  a challenge!


Never too late  to join in  here 

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!

    Sounds like a busy week, but way too much of it as a result of people who can’t do their jobs right the first time. Hope your kitchen and sofa are good as new by the end of the week.

    grrrr. Every week when I see your caption, I rush over thinking that maybe Paul has returned and no one told me. Not that I don’t love your posts, as well, but you know – Paul! When I got my year-end WP review over on my site, it was Paul’s posts that had the most views and comments! Grrrrr. Again, not that I’m not proud of him, but you know, I do write, too.

    Anyway, let’s both keep plugging along, and hopefully Paul will get his internet back and contact one of us sooner rather than later.

    It was a sad day when David Bowie died. He broke all the rules and push music, style and so much more to the next level. Alan’s death too was sad. Both were far too young! I have seen Star Wars yet – I am more of a Trekkie but was going to try and see Star Wars on the big screen. Not sure if we will get to it. We have had some nasty weather come into our area. So staying home is often more enjoyable. 🙂

      Yes it was a sad sad week two great talents gone. We love Star Trek too and that is another film I am looking forward to. The weather here is not good but probably not as spectacular as yours. 🙂

    Hope Paul is improving!

    I’ve been quite sad about Bowie and Rickman, too. They were both great artists.

    Hope your week is a good one–it certainly sounds like it will be a busy one!

    Busy, busy, busy! No rest for the wicked, they say. Sad, sad, sad. And since you have posted this we have now lost Glenn Frey too! And poor Céline Dion’s husband AND her brother within 2 days of each other. Then two drummers and…
    It’s getting to the point that I am afraid to go on Facebook!
    I think I should like to sit by your fire, Ms Willow, and do let us talk of lovely things…
