Hello  and  welcome  come in it is lovely  to see you all here again. The fires are lit  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea on  the go  and the cakes and sweets are all set out. Paul  and  his guests  are all here  and they are enjoying  the warmth , food and drinks. 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  tell you how  excited I am to  be joining  Just Gene’o   and Diana’s “If  we were having  coffee”  weekend  at    and also at . I am very  proud  to be part  of  his weekend  as I have been doing  a Sunday Coffee get together  for a good  while now  and my  good friend  Paul Curran  has  be a very  welcome  guest  poster having  his own coffee get together  alongside mine! Check Gene’O’s, If we were having  coffee  weekend , out  at  https://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/2015/01/10/if-we-were-having-coffee-the-inaugural-weekend-coffee-share/

I cannot  Tweet  my  coffee post Gene’O because I do not  Tweetin …a step to far, so far  for me! 🙂


If we were having Coffee: I would  offer you the beverage of  your choice  and of course  some of our out of this  world  cakes, pastries all calorie  free.


Then on a sober note I would  have to  say  how saddened I have been by this last weeks acts of  Terror in France. I have no  doubt  you are all as shocked  as I am. I wrote  a post on the attack on the  Charlie Hebdo  Office in Paris . I wrote  my  feeling on the subject  in  my post  Je Suis Charlie  , sadly  the  blood shed  did not end there  as  the murders  had accomplices who started up diversionary   tactics you can read about  these here   and  the end  of  the siege involving  the two remaining  men from the original massacre .    here  .

If we were having Coffee:  I would  have to say  how saddened I am by  the world, the human race  that is.  We are no better  than we were first crawling  and creeping on a virgin planet. So far  we have learned nothing. Like spoiled children we wage  war, hurt each other, some have it all some nothing   but we have not learned  to love, share  or even be kind! We have ruined our planet  and left an awful  legacy to our children  and grandchildren.

If we were having Coffee:   I would have to say  sorry I am getting  a tad heavy! Okay ..No  more  lets have some cake  and maybe  a liqueur Coffee  we can make any type  you desire!

Flaming Coffee


Yum Yum

If we were having coffee:  I would  have to ask are  you still keeping up  your  New Years Resolutions? Well I started back at  the gym last Monday  and my  friend  and I have  signed up  for extra ‘Core Lessons’ and  we have paid  for them so that is an incentive ! So I have been at the gym everyday  this week….. eek!  Also Friday my Pilates classes started  and Saturday morning my usual Core Class  started after a three week Christmas break! To  be honest I am sitting here typing  and aching all over! But I  must  just think of  the good it  will do me.

The Husband is  still not  back up to par  but  he  did have a larger operation than expected, and he did insist that we all still went away f0r Christmas  when really  he would  of done  better  to stay home  and rest. I am not  complaining I have really  enjoyed  looking after him. It  is a way  of  showing  him  how  much I appreciate everything  he did for me  when I came out of hospital  and had  to learn  to walk again.

If we were having coffee: I would  tell you all to make  yourselves  at home  go and chat to Paul’s  guest  and to Gene’O’s and Diana’s friends too. I look forward  to chatting  with  you all!

This Month January  is  Just Jot  It  January   run  by  LindaGHill  Well I am always up  for  challenge and I have done JusJoJan  before  and survived  so I am doing it again this  month/year. It  means I  must  jot out  a post  every day  of this month!……………….. eek! It is  a twofold blessing  not only  do  have to use  my grey matter I  get  to meet  lots of  new bloggers! I  hope  some of  them will come and join us  at our Sunday morning  get together’s.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  I would say  lets  go and see what Paul’s  guest are up to lets  all mix  and have fun.  I would ask you if you would  like
another  cuppa, or  another cake . !   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/
And of course  the


over at Part Time  Monster  and Gene’O’s

Coffee and Cakes

Just Jot It January. Je Suis Charlie

Standing in support of the freedom of the press, these protesters hold an illuminated sign at a gathering in the centre of Paris
The Pen is mightier than the sword.

Death  stalked  the Paris Streets, in the early  morning sun

They came the  hooded cowards with their rocket launcher and gun.

They stormed into the office of Charlie Hebdo where men were armed  with the pen

They  killed them all, drowned  them in all blood  so  they might not draw again!


God bless the artists of Charlie Hebdo you have left your mark

Unlike  those  who shot  you down, all they left is dark.

A true and  kind  God  would never want us to kill in his name

The pen is mightier  than the sword as  truth  will always  proclaim.




They think the cycle is over yet it is only just begun.

The moon dances all the night then gives way to the sun.

People have fought so many wars, enough for them to be at an end.

Yet somehow still man cannot completely be man’s friend.

The Christians and the Muslins fought a holy war

It all started centuries ago and still they fight some more.

The world has endured two world wars the first was meant to end them all.

Yet even after that, the world is fighting still, just watch the armies fall.

The Holocaust was only a one off?? yet genocide prevails.

It is here and thriving just like a bomb of nails.

The word genocide did not exist until nineteen forty four

But it has been around since the beginning of time and will be here for evermore.

Hutu , Tutsi, Jews, Palestinians,Germans, English, Americans,every nation in the world.

They all profess that they want peace but they all hinder the peace flag being unfurled.

The money men like money and arms make lots of that, so they do not check credentials.

Politicians love money too, so they back wars. Buying and selling to the highest bidders like a bunch of whores.

So when will it all finish, when will the wars and hate all end.

Until everything changes, never  never my  friend.
