Welcome. Come on in for a cup of tea or coffee. You are very welcome and I have most beverages. I even have some coffee biscuits – mind you they might be a bit stale as I opened them awhile back and then forgot about them.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I feel I have had a very productive week. I managed to write some posts that had a deadline to them, got a piece sent in to a competition, prepared my speech for toastmasters on Monday and we have almost finished the painting. At least there are no more ladders involved – all the high bits are done and we should finish it today.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I had a fall on Monday that took the skin off my hands and knees and took the wind out of my sails. The one that hurts the most is on the other side of the same hand. I just wish I could work out how I fell to damage both sides.
Poor Muffin screamed when it happened. I don’t know whether the lead jerked her neck before it was pulled from my hands or whether it just came as such a fright. Luckily she didn’t run out onto the road and came and sat beside me whilst I recovered my composure. A man stopped in an expensive car and offered both Muffin and me a lift home which I thought was such a lovely gesture. There was no need though as luckily it was just my feathers that were ruffled. I will let council know that they need to fix the paving so someone else doesn’t have a similar trip. They may not be as sturdy as I am.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we have discovered a new place to eat virtually in the heart of Noosa. It is a backpackers in a wonderful old Queenslander (which is a type of house built off the ground).
We had a fun evening with some friends and the food was good so I’m sure it won’t be long before we return.
We have also started having coffee down on the river in the morning. I love seeing the sun rise and the river, at that time of day, seems as still as stone but softer than it. We also took Mum to the Marina for lunch on Friday and finished at the new ice cream shop. Yum. I had one scoop of ginger and one scoop of cinnamon and fig. Yum. There icecream cakes looked pretty good to but how would they survive the homeward journey in the subtropical heat?
The Queen’s baton passes by us on Monday. I’ll try to get to see it but as it is late afternoon I may be starting to panic about my toastmasters speech. Our weather has been variable. The fires thankfully have been controlled but not before 70 homes were lost in Tathra. I feel for the people concerned. We have two cyclones swirling around in the north but where we are it is not too bad.
So that is about it for my week. Have you read any good books or seen any films that should be seen? Looking forward to seeing how your week has been. Thank you for dropping in for coffee, it is lovely to see you. Thanks to eclecticali who is our host of the weekend coffee share.
