Now, that the presents are all unwrapped, that the bird is eaten and that you are wondering how you are going to survive the excess that comes with New Year’s Eve, it’s time for me to say thank you.

Weekend Coffee Share 20th November 2016

Well it might be a bit late opportunity coffee now. But as not everyone is in my time zone you might enjoy a late night chat. 

If we were having a very late chat, I’d tell you that I treated myself to a day off today. Lately I have been working 7 days per week and even though it’s between 1 hour and at the very most 6 (this rarely happens) a proper day off is a nice thing. After all it permits me to not talk or think too much. 

If we were having coffee then I would ask you about your week, your weekend, your family, and all the things that might be of interest. I am realising that my on and well mostly off blogging has not altered my view of my blogging friends, to some of you I feel a deep connection. It’s a bit as if I have not written to pen pals, ah that reminds me of all the letters and emails that I should reply to, as well as all the emails, text messages and letters that I want to send. So yes blogging is sort of like writing letters, sometimes it flows and sometimes it doesn’t. 

Sorry I am rambling!
If we were having coffee, then I’d ask you a very important question. 

Would you like to participate in this year’s advent calendar? I am so exited about the many replies that have come in so far, and I am hoping for more contributors! To find out more please check out this post

If we were having coffee, then I would tell you that I am really longing to sleep, but Maus had a late and long nap that has altered all plans… Thus I will cut our chat short.  

If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, have a happy one!
