Welcome and come on in. Let’s get settled with a cup of tea or coffee and then we’ll chat. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the States. I hope your day was filled with happiness, family, friends and lots of delicious food.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that yesterday I did my Silver Star Modern Ballroom exam and for the first time that I remember I tasted fear. By the time I had watched other people in my class do their moves which I didn’t recognise as any that I knew, I had a complete brain wipe and the bile rose with my panic. I felt sorry for my dance partner as I was sure my breath smelt like the bottom of a cocky’s cage – it sure tasted like one. Luckily I was dancing with my teacher who is skilled in both leading round the floor and quelling the nerves of those he danced with. He did a great job as I ended up to my surprise with an A for quickstep and an A- for waltz, tango and foxtrot. Considering the marks go to C- and A+ I was thrilled with mine. I received a trophy and my report card. Sadly these days in photos I always seem to look like a giant. Could be a New Years resolution coming up.
I thoroughly enjoyed my week with my friend although the weather didn’t do us any favours. We had a few hours of blue sky and that was it. She left on Thursday morning and it cleared in the afternoon. Still we got to do a few things such as go to Noosa Spit and lots and lots of chatting. I just love it with friends that you haven’t seen for a long time yet you can pick up as though it was yesterday that you last spoke.
In my spare time I have been working on a project for the university which I am really enjoying. It involves a bit of research and writing but I’ll talk about that at another time. I have finished the book I was reading and will review it during the week. I have started reading “The Dry” by Jane Harper. I’m not far enough into it to form an opinion yet. No time to go to the movies or to do much else. Took Mum for lunch on Friday and we went to Doonan Cafe where we can take the dogs so we all had a nice day.
Now it is your turn. How was your week? Has your weather been warmer/colder, wetter/drier. Have you read any good books or seen any good films? Thank you for dropping in for coffee, it is lovely to see you. Thanks to our host eclecticali who is our host of the weekend coffee share.
