Welcome and come on in. Let’s get settled with a cup of tea or coffee and we’ll have a chat. Finally the weather is perfect although with the rain the humidity has come a little sooner than normal.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we had a fun night for our Toastmasters Christmas breakup. Our toastmaster rose to the occasion and came as an elf.
Unfortunately Santa had disgruntled the elves and they had retaliated by turning our noses upside down so the holes faced upward. A fun brain storming examined all the problems this could create for the poor humans. We then divided into groups to invent apparatus that would deal with at least one of these problems and then present it to the group and sell it. What a lot of fun.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that the dogs had a visit to Santa this week. It is starting to feel like Christmas.

I’m hoping the photos Santa’s helper took will have Bundy looking up to the camera. In the end he lay down on Santa’s lap and didn’t want to leave. He also did that to Mum this week.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I have finished East of the Mountains which I will soon review and was going to read Fifty Shades of Grey. I don’t believe in being critical about a book unless I have read it and if it is as bad as I have heard tell – then I don’t have to finish it. Sometimes though, you learn more from bad books than you do from the good. Anyway, having said that I am no longer going to read it as Roger has just finished a book that he says is the best, most compelling book he has read in the last 25 years. On that recommendation I am going to read that instead. It is a book translated from Italian called Can You Hear Me by Elena Varvello.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I continue steadily on with my editing. Everything has wound up until next year. Christmas is less than 10 days away and I’m feeling relaxed and as if I am on holiday. 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.
