IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:
Well this is so nice of you Gene’O inviting us all over to yours for a coffee , I am really pleased to accept not least of all because I have been doing the Sunday, ‘If we were having coffee’ along with your Diana , who is part of your group at partimemonsters for a good few weeks now. Recently Paul Curran blogger extraordinaire of no fixed blog has been making use of my garden to hold a coffee gathering and meeting of minds. So if it is Okay we will join you and all your other guests!
I do like what you have done with the place Gene’O it is very, very you! It feels odd to be sitting here instead of handing cups and cakes to he the guest.
Okay what’s been happening this week so IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: blogging wise, Johncoyote got me up on to my soap box and I dug up some old posts and wrote a new one or two on the subject of how badly we are treating our beautiful plant. Taking her for granted, burning and deforesting her, raging wars on her belly and her back killing not only each other but all her flora and fauna and any poor creatures trapped in the war machine’s way! Mining, covering her with concrete so she bleeds and is starved of air. Time is running out and we are the only ones who can do anything to save mother earth/ mother nature for our children and our children’s children!
Oh! you have all gone quiet, I got up on my soap box didn’t I …..sorry I did mean to get carried away! I am not a raving loony honest!
Right I am embarrassed, what else … IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would tell you that on Wednesday I went shopping with my friend . I needed shoes, thanks to a bunion on my left foot I now appear to have difficulty finding shoes that do not hurt!
So we went off in search of sensible shoes. It was a hard job but someone had to do it! Was it a successful trip I hear you asking.
I managed to buy three pairs of sensible wide fitting shoes that did not look too awful! Not to mention a pair of pretty platform sandals….. well they were in the sale and so pretty. I also bought a lovely floaty pink and white polka dot dress it was not on the shopping list but it is also very pretty, also not on the list was an outfit for the Newbie, buy outfits for the Newbie well that just goes without saying!
IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would tell you that while I was at Pilates on Friday my phone rang and it was my youngest son asking me where I was, at pilates, I replied, where is dad, he asked he is not answering his phone, polishing my car I replied OH! he said we are coming to visit you ! Hooray I thought returning to pilates excited about an extra chance to see the Newbie and his mum and dad! It was lovely to see them they were on their way out to lunch but it is always lovely to see them flying visit or not!
Today after my core class we went over to see them , two days in a row such a treat! We spent the afternoon gardening, while I was tiding up one of the flower beds I spotted these fabulous flowers does anyone know what they are ? I certainly do not recognize them. I have had a lovely time with my husband, my youngest son and his family.
Now just before I go IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask if you remember me telling you that I have been looking after our friends cats while they are away on holiday. The cats have been staying with us for 3weeks so far. Well they are lovely cats, house cats which means we are not allowed to let them out at all. Well I have to report that they are very mischievous animals. One of them has made several escape attempts luckily we have foiled them all! ( so far) , here are some photos of them at play!
Well all that remains is f0r me to say thank you to Gene’O for having us we have aha a lovely time!
