Welcome. Come and join me for a coffee or tea at Jaspers. Today is my birthday but I had early chores to do so I didn’t arrive at Jaspers until a bit later than normal. As a birthday treat I decided to have a raspberry and white chocolate muffin. Yum….I’ll sit awhile to give you time to join me but today I have a lot to do.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you I have been busy packing most of the week and now just have those difficult things to pack. The boxes are piling up and I feel as though the place is a total mess but that it reminds me that the reason for cupboards is to hide the mess and my cupboards are now bare. I have left only enough plates , glasses and cutlery for one meal but those are interesting in themselves as I have packed the cooking equipment.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you the lack of cooking equipment hasn’t been a problem yet as we went out Thursday night for a romantic celebration of both our birthdays. We went and had a Maltese meal at a resort and sat overlooking the pool. The sunset on the way there was to die for.
Friday Mum took us to the Boat House at Cotton Tree, one of my favourite eateries, for the same purpose. Great meal and no need to eat Friday night.
Today I am finishing off the packing and going dancing tonight. Should be a good night.
Blogging — there is a new Times Past prompt on dental experiences. I also posted a review of Shoe Dog – the story of Nike and its creator – and another about the meals on the cruise. This week we stop off in Auckland. That is we stop off if I have both the time and internet. I have spent hours on the phone organising electricity and telephone but I still don’t know if I have managed to get the internet connected although I am sure it is being cut off here. If I am absent for a few days that is the reason. Unless I review a book I have read awhile ago a book review this week will not happen either as I just haven’t had the time to open a book. I may also miss coffee next week as I am going to the Gold Coast for my nursing reunion – 40 years since we graduated. It is so hard to believe.
I’d better stop talking and let you get a word in. How has your week been. Are you warming up or cooling down? It is our best time of year now with the days perfect for any activity but the mornings and nights have turned cooler making it perfect to sleep. Have you read any books? Seen any films? Done anything?
Thanks to Nerd in the Brain for hosting our coffee mornings. For others opening their doors for a chat over a beverage.
