If we were having coffee 9 July 2016 #WeekendCoffeeShare

If we were having coffee, I’d welcome you warmly and offer you your choice of beverage. I’d offer you coffee {the slightly good one, not instant}, hot chocolate, regular black tea or herbal teas {peppermint, citrus, pomegranate, chocolate, beetroot…the list is endless}. We’d get comfy on the couch, with Pebbles and Buttons squished between us. They are attached like that.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you this week has been up and down. It started with a crappy Monday but then got a bit better as the week wore on. I’d tell you I’ve been struggling with sinusitis on-and-off this week. My chronic sinus problems flared up last weekend and have continued since. It resulted in some nights of really bad headaches, me throwing up thanks to the pain and well, taking a lot of legal drugs!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that in spite of my sinus problems, I managed to work out every day this week. And it felt good! I only went to one class at the gym — yoga — but worked out on my own the rest of the time. In fact, I started running on the treadmill again; something I haven’t done since about 2014 when my knees began playing up a lot. Given that I rolled my ankle earlier this year as well, I’m taking it easy but it’s been good. I forgot the adrenalin rush I get from working out hard for at least an hour.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I had the chance to work from home twice this week. It was awesome not having to travel all the way to work. I was productive and finished all the paperwork I was required to do from home. I only wish it was like that more often but it’s a luxury.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I watched Finding Dory on Thursday. It was adorable! I love the messages some of these movies send us. I loved it as much as I loved Finding Nemo and want to re-watch Nemo again! Earlier this week, I also got my hair done. It only took me six months to go back to the hairdresser to touch up my hair colour and trim my fringe! I decided not to get my hair cut and might instead do it six months later. Something big, maybe.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I have a hen’s party today. There are different events all day, but the one I’m attending is the high tea later this morning. I’ve only been to high tea once before and that was ages ago when I didn’t even drink tea! I’m hoping the occasion and the fact that I drink tea makes this a much more enjoyable experience.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I finished reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic on Sunday {review to come soon!} and that I was totally inspired and made sure I submitted a short story of mine to a magazine. I hold no high hopes but I would love some feedback. On another note, I am also participating in Yeah Write’s super challenge which begins today. Totally working on that writing thing!

If we were having coffee, I obviously wouldn’t be so self-involved. I’d want to know what’s been going on in your life — books you’ve read, TV shows you’ve been watching, how work has been and well, life in general.

So please, do share!

    If we were having coffee, I ‘d be high fiving you for working out every day this week because now you’ve worked off all those calories you can help me eat some birthday cake. One has to keep one’s energy levels, you know! If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I’m now closer to fifty than forty and how I don’t know how that’s possible because I’m still in single digits on the inside! Oh and we’d compare high tea notes, because I’m having a belated birthday high tea tomorrow! Good luck with your story – I’d cross fingers for you but I know your writing well enough to know that it’s full of it’s own merits! Happy weekend x

    I’ve been working from home since a month and joining a new place from Monday on a part time basis as a consultant thrice a week. It works for me and prefer the work from home. I just finished Farthest Field by Raghu Karnad on the Indian story of second world war and will soon hop on Oh Yes I Am Single And So is My Girl Friend by Durjoy Datta and Neeti Rastogi and Suchi Kalra’s I am Big So What. It’s too cold here and crash on bed very early. I just can’t sustain the cold this season. That would be our coffee conversation with you!

    Yay to working from home! And good on you with the exercise! Amazing how good it makes you feel hey!
    I’d tell you about the book I’m reading, it’s ‘How (not) to start an orphanage… by the woman who did’… It’s the autobiography of Tara Winkler who rescued some orphans from a dodgy orphanage in Cambodia and started one of her own, only to realise that wasn’t such a good idea. It’s a wonderful and powerful read and I highly recommend it!

    Oh! Big Magic! I loved this book! It was so inspiring! This book made me feel more comfortable calling myself a writer. And it validated my blogging for enjoyment, because I was beginning to feel like I was wasting my time if I wasn’t try to turn my blog into a business. I can’t wait to read your review!

    I’m inspired by your committment to workouts – good for you! Big Magic has reached the top of my reading pile and I hope to get started on it this weekend. I look forward to your review, and wish you a wonderful week.

    Ah, to work from home.. so jelly. I still have hope that’s in my future, preferably at my current job! Glad to hear you’re feeling better and kudos on the exercise! I just finished Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King.. My fave! Have a great week!

    Thanks for the coffee but I would’ve loved to join you for high tea. How was it? Where did you go? I love a really old-fashioned high tea. You might have already seen my post about having a Queensland High Tea a few months ago
    Hope you have a great week!
