If we were having coffee: Wet Bank Holidays, Triffids, and Newbie fun!

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  say  it has  been  a  very  busy  week  Monday  and Tuesday  we were  away  at a music  festival  with  friends  followed  by a  visit  to  a house  owned  by  the Rothchild’s, two lovely days indeed  even though  the  weather on the  Bank Holiday Monday  was  awful…… it  did not  stop  raining we  still have  lots of  fun!!

The  rest  of  the  week  has  been  a busy  blur  too!

The  Newbie  has  been  away  with his  mum, dad  and  maternal grandparents, and  by  all reports  he has  had a  wonderful  time. He  has  been very  happy,  he loved  digging  at  the  beach, having  dad chase  him around  the  airport. I am  very  proud  to  say  that  he  behaved  very  well on  the  plane  journey  out  and  the  return  home  too! Partly  I  suspect  that  Dad  wore  him out before  both  flights!

Well now  if  we were having  coffee : I will be  asking  you  about  now, if  you  would  like  another  drink  or  some  cake, or  sweets  as  Paul  calls  them.

If  we  were having  coffee: I  would be  congratulating  Deborah  at Container Chronicles  who  is  celebrating  the  birth of  her  new Grandson Jack!  WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO! for  Deborah!

Come  on  Sheri  I  am waiting   for  a  chat  and  to  see  what  delights  you have  brought  for us  this  week!

Now  don’t  forget  that  Paul  my  usual  guest  “If  we  were  having Coffee” poster  is  over over  at  the  Itty  Bitty  in Syracuse with Mark, Karen  and Ellie B, shall  we  go  and  see  what  they are up  to?

You  can all breath easy  as I have  not  got  time  or the  wear with  all  to share  any garden  news  this  month , yes  I can  hear  you  all  sighing  a  sigh of  relief! Just incase  any of  you  are  suffering  withdrawal  effects  here is a  piccy  just  for  you!

Okay  relax  I  am only  joking! But  joking  aside  I  have  to be  off now  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!

Let us  go  and Join Paul and the  gang  they  are  all over  at  Mark Bialczak  this  week  and  all this  month. Let us  see  what  they are  all discussing  ! It has  been lovely  as always  to have  you all here  and  I  hope,  as does  Paul  that  you will all join us here and  at Mark Bialczak ‘s again  next  week.

And of course  the


over at Part Time  Monster  and Gene’O’s
