Welcome. Come in and have a coffee or tea or cold drink. Take the weight off your feet for a minute and tell me how your week has been.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we saw SILS and BILL back to Germany on Thursday. SILS and Roger are so similar, both in looks and in personality that it is no wonder I miss her. We both feel flat. The hard thing is when you reach an age (BILL is in his eighties and SILS and Roger in their 70s) you never know if this farewell will be the last and that thought is hard to come to terms with as we said good-bye.
The day they flew out we took them down to Brisbane and had a wander through the city and South Bank before taking them to the airport. Sadly parking was at a premium and we could only get a three hour spot so our time was cut short. We would have spent an hour or two in the art galleries had we more time, instead they had a longer wait at the airport and we sat in a peak hour traffic jam. We understand totally why we live in the country.
Now it should be time to finish off my work and get it submitted (almost there) but Roger has decided he wants to give me a party for my 60th birthday this week. Although it will be great celebrating it with friends it does mean that I will have to help with some preparation. The dining room table is going to have to be cleared of all my books and computer and a bit of housework (which hasn’t been a priority) will have to be done as well as organising food, music and I want party games. I’m still a kid at heart. Musical chairs might be too difficult but I’ll find something. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. It’ll be right on the night.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that the new “Times Past” prompt has been posted. This month we are looking at seaside memories. One comment reminded me of a sight that used to be common but I don’t think we see any more – the floaty horse. Then I remembered I have seen one (although a different animal) in the last ten years so they must still be around.
Would love to have you join in with your memories of the seaside.
The weather here remains warm, blue and a perfect temperature as we go into autumn. How is your weather? Warming up a little bit? Well that is it for me this week. I’ll be a year older and in a different decade next week with a much cleaner, tidier house. I’d better get moving as I’ve got a lot to do. Thanks for dropping by and thanks to Diana for hosting our weekend coffee. Drop over and say hallo to those that partake in coffee of a weekend.
