Are you free for coffee?

Having read about this on Rinda's blog, I hopped over to Abi's blog for a cuppa and so I thought it would be fun to join it. So are you free for coffee?


We could meet up at Dobbie's Garden Centre where they do lovely fruit scones. I would have tea (even though I always ask if you want to join me for coffee), I never drink coffee. We would find a table and sit and chat for ages.

I would tell you all about my move which is now only 14 sleeps away. How the work is coming on in my new kitchen and how the decorators have now done the bedrooms and I really like the colours I have chosen. I would tell you that I now need to get some new roller blinds for the bedrooms. I would wonder with you where I was going to put all the stuff that I have in storage. I would talk for ages about how I am looking forward to this as I have found the last 8 months rather difficult living where we are. I might wonder if  I was boring you, but as you are my friend you would not be bored but be interested and would make helpful suggestions.

I would tell you that I start my new job this week and I am a bit anxious about it. I have two days induction training this week and then one day next. I would wonder with you why things always happen at the same time, why I am moving two weeks after starting a new job. You would tell me that's what happens in life but that I will manage to cope fine.

I will tell you how much I am looking forward to getting my craft stuff out of storage and about all the plans that I have for projects to do. 

I would tell you about all the good things that are happening in our new church, but that I am tired at the moment. You will tell me that I will feel better soon once we are settled in our new house.

We would then have a walk around the garden centre before going our separate ways again but promising to meet up again soon.

Oh how lovely. And yes, you will feel better, much better soon when the move is over and you are all settled.

Hi Fiona! Here I am sitting down beside you at your table in Dobbie's with my coffee and maybe a piece of tiffin if they had some. I am of course joining in on all those wise supportive comments you have anticipated. I'm also going to say to you how glad I am to have found your blog today. And I'm going to thank you for introducing me to the "Fast from...feast on" poem and explain that I'm aiming to start working through it properly next year as I'm a bit late this year. But I'll also let you know how much I'm enjoying doing my daily "grateful for...." statuses on facebook. And I'll also be saying what a lovely idea having coffee (tea) together is and be looking round to see who else might be able to join us...

Hi fiona. Thank you so much for joining in! That garden centre sounds lovely. I know what you mean, I always ask people to come out for coffee with me but always drink tea! Hoping that the move goes well, it sounds like a fun and busy time.

A new job and a move! Lots of stress Fiona but I think our viit at the garden center will be good for relaxing and refreshing. I am excited for you. What a blessing. See you again soon and you can tell me how it went with those new blinds.

Lots of stress Fiona. Our visit at the Garden center will help. I am excited for you. What a blessing. I will see you next time and you can fill me in on those blinds!
