Hi it’s a couple of weeks since I’ve had coffee. How have you been? Come on in and pull up a chair and join me for a hot cup of whatever you desire. We have the lot this week but nothing to eat. No wait a minute I have some paleo balls if you’d like one.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you I’m now a decade older but the transition was seamless thanks to Roger and the friends who joined me to celebrate.
I cannot believe that I who has a camera tied to them did not take one single photo. Not of the food beforehand, the guests, the speeches or anything. Luckily a friend took one and normally, like me, she would have taken zillions in the normal course of events. I guess it shows we were all enjoying ourselves too much to think of taking the camera out. We played a game (or rather a quiz) on arrival that forced people to talk to people they didn’t know. It was a great ice breaker and after that people mixed and the conversation flowed. Muffin, whom I was worried would annoy everyone was preoccupied with a guest, a 4 month old Bear coat Sharpei. They played all night. The only hiccough was when Roger was extolling my virtues, Muffin sat behind him and vomited the most technicolour pile of slime. The speech giving degenerated after that.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the week before the party I did little uni work. There was too much cleaning up to be done and food to be made. So after it was over I have had my nose to the grindstone again. Final edit (I hope) completed and now just doing stuff like formatting and ensuring tables are correct. I am going to submit to my supervisor again on Tuesday and hope that she agrees that this is the final edit. I have managed to cull 20,000 words and perhaps by Tuesday I may get rid of a few more.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that Muffin was desexed on Friday. She didn’t take the anaesthetic too well and has spent a couple of days trying to recover. She went to Roger for comfort on her return – I was the traitor who took her to the vet.
Roger is fearful that she is going to be mentally scarred from this procedure and the collar around her head. She has totally lost the concept of how long she is with the addition and is constantly walking into walls coming to an abrupt halt. I must say though I have never had an animal before that has been so accepting of the contraption. She doesn’t like it but she isn’t constantly trying to get it off. I have to hand feed her but we have worked out a method of drinking that she can manage herself without assistance.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we have had an overcast week with a bit of rain this week but absolutely perfect temperatures. I haven’t blogged as much as usual as I am trying to get my work finished and missed some of my favourites including Trent’s Weekly Smile but got to others like the 99 word flash fiction this week about monsters. Times Past is still open for grainy memories.
If I were having coffee I’d tell you that we went to the movies and saw “The Lady in the Van.” It was okay but for me just a little slow moving. My Mum enjoyed it. Alan Bennett’s language was delightful to listen to. I think he must have been a saint in real life to accommodate the van lady for fifteen years or more. We are thinking of seeing ‘Hail Caesar’ the new Coen brothers film. Has anyone seen it yet?
Well I’d better get back to my tables and formatting. Hope to drop by you soon. Have a good week. Thanks to Diana for hosting our weekend coffee share.
