Come on in. I’ll put the kettle on. Coffee or Tea or Hot Chocolate?
If we were having coffee I’d tell you I have absolutely nothing to tell you. Well not anything you’d want to stick around and hear. Happy Easter by the way. Easter has traditionally been a time of flooding rains. Every year the campers set out on Thursday night or Friday morning. Usually they get to set up camp in fine blue conditions but Friday night the deluge arrives only to see most of the campers not too happy and ready to pull up camp. This Easter they were given a nice Saturday and the rain came today, Sunday. It hasn’t affected me any as all week I have been culling words, not only from my exegesis but also a book chapter that has now become a journal article for reasons too long to go into but nothing to do with my chapter.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you I’m saving all these words that are being discarded. What for – goodness knows. They just add to my already cluttered computer but as in life, I’m a hoarder and struggle to throw anything away. You should have felt my anguish when I discovered a laundry tub I’d been saving in the trash can. The powers of control I had to exert to stop myself from pulling it out and rescuing it were immense. I know that all my treasures are Roger’s nemesis and I feared for his sanity if he were to find the stainless steel beauty back in the shed.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that Hail Caesar had gone from Noosa by Thursday which was when we were planning to go and had in fact been looking forward to a night out just the two of us. Most cinema we do is in the day so that my Mum can come with us but this was to be a romantic evening with popcorn. Instead we both went to sleep in front of the TV.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you Muffin’s wound has not healed. The vet is blaming us. I don’t know whether we are blaming anyone yet but it certainly is nothing we have done. Bed rest for a six month old is nigh on impossible.
My nothing week also had no photographs taken apart from the sky on Friday so I have none to share today. Blogging too has been minimal (I really do have my head down which is why I’m so boring at the moment) but the new Times Past will be out this week on Friday so you still have 5 days to contribute your grainy memories to the rich mix.
Now you must have more to tell me than I had to tell you if we were having coffee. How has your week been? Any signs of spring …or winter depending on where you live? Thank you Diana for hosting our weekend coffee share. Pop on over and say a quick hallo to her and the others who share over coffee.
