Welcome. Come on in for coffee or tea. Whatever you prefer. I also have some brioche today so whoever gets here first will have a taste delight. The weather is still good although we have had our first August winds. This is when we get the most leaf fall rather than in what to most would occur in autumn or Fall.
f we were having coffee I’d tell you that today I was notified by Word Press that it is my third birthday today. Yeah. Three great years getting to know some wonderful people. Time to celebrate.
No I didn’t get the candles wrong – each one is worth six months. Have a slice. Yum…..
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we went twice to the movies this week. The first time we saw Hunting the Wilderpeople which I thought was a delightful film about a deliquent foster child who, as a last resort, ends up in the backwoods of New Zealand with a couple of Deliverance style characters. When the fostering woman dies circumstances see her husband and child reduced to life on the run. I would certainly recommend it. The other film which was also delightful and very funny in a witty way was Love and Friendship. My husband loved this film and laughed throughout preferring it to the Hunt for the Wilderpeople. I am not sure that I could chose a favourite between the two. This was taken from a Jane Austen novella Lady Susan which was not published until a long time after her death. If you like period pieces I’m sure you’d like this one.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I am getting my act back together. We are working solidly preparing the house for sale and hopefully we will have it on the market in the next few weeks. I have decided that I cannot bear to leave all the work to my husband and when I see the surgeon regarding my feet on Thursday I will tell him I want to book in for January next year. We should have moved by that time and if not I should be able to get quite a few boxes packed beforehand.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that the new Times Past prompt is out. This one is regarding clubs that you may have joined and when in life you started joining in these things. Would love you to join in if you want to.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that it is over to you – I have done little this week except place ads on gumtree for items we no longer want (decluttering), washing floors and cupboards and also Muffin. I have discovered that I don’t need to leave Muffin to dry off as she stands happily while I blow her dry. This is a good discovery as it means that she can be in the house sooner. Outside she stands at the door crying and scratching and claw marks on the door are the last thing we want.
If we were having coffee I’d thank you for dropping in and tell you that it is your turn to tell me about your week. I’m looking forward to hearing what you’ve been up to, what books you’ve read and films you’ve seen. How is your weather? I certainly hope it is better than ours. Thanks to Diana for hosting our coffee mornings. To visit others for coffee
