Weekend Coffee Share 23/09/2017

So I heard that right, there was a knock on my door! I didn’t expect you to come an visit, really what a surprise! Come on in it’s so good to see you!

If we were having coffee on this very beautiful first official Saturday of Autumn then we would be sitting on the ground on nice fluffy sheep skins (sorry if you are vegan or a vegetarian then you can sit on the ground a chair) surrounded by stuffed animals. The ground is the safest place for the boy to be at the moment, and there is no sofa. Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share 23/09/2017”
