Welcome. Come in and have a cup of coffee or tea. How are your preparations for Christmas going? You are probably ready to sit back and relax.
If we “were having coffee” I’d tell you that I have done as much as I plan on doing for Christmas. My Mum came over on Monday to help put up the Christmas Tree. If she hadn’t done that I possibly wouldn’t have got around to it but it was fun sharing the activity with her. She sat on her walker and worked on the lower branches whilst I did the higher ones. I don’t have a proper tree. Last year I collected a branch from the park and decorated it. Mum presented me with a better branch early in the New Year that she picked up from the post Christmas sales so this is its first year being used.
Being up on a cupboard it isn’t in danger from Muffin who would be sure to find all the hanging bits irresistible.
Talking of Muffin, if we “Were having Coffee” I’d tell you that she seems to have turned a corner. Suddenly she seems to be less out of control, not biting so much and there are days we have no accidents in the house. She doesn’t seem to be able to manage it two days in a row but at least I feel we are winning. She can now jump onto the lounge and bed so Bundy now has nowhere he can escape to although he too is finding her easier to cope with.
If we “Were having Coffee” I’d tell you that this has been a week of Christmas Parties and last for the year. Pilates, dancing, university, book club and friendly catch ups with friends who will be away over the Christmas break. However, at one of these I caught up with my supervisor and I now have a timeline. Finish my edit by end of January and give to her first week Feb. Submit to the examiners before Easter. It means I have my work cut out for me over the holiday period but I need that deadline to make me get a wriggle on.
If we “were having coffee” I’d tell you I have to go to have a coffee. We belong to an expat coffee group who meet every Sunday. We don’t manage to make it every week but I want to get there this week to wish them all a Happy Christmas. As I may not see you again before Christmas I also hope that yours is Happy and Safe and that you can relax and enjoy it with your family, friends or by yourself. Merry Christmas.
Thanks to Diana for hosting our coffee mornings
