Monday Coffee

Tonight we are sitting outside, watching the stars.  The moon has shone her heart out this weekend and even helped eclipse the sun.  I felt it would be fun to sit and watch her as we sip our hot chocolate, french roast, Americano or different teas.

Usually I share other bloggers and tell you about their weeks or interests.  Instead, I’m going to sit next to you and share some fun questions and answers with you.  I got this idea from the wonderful V-Pub. Check out his answers to the questions….once you’ve finished your drink of course!

So, don’t hog the blanket as we cuddle and watch the stars together!

1. Your very first car?  A Landrover.

2. Your first friend?  Catherine.  She was my friend throughout junior school.

3. Item you have that you have had longer than anything else? My lucky pig – until my son lost him! Click to read the story here.

4. What you order the most at Starbucks? Classic or hazelnut hot chocolate.

5. Body parts that are double jointed?  None but I’m still pretty flexible.

6. Name a shortcut that you take in your daily routine? 

7. Lets say you become the opposite sex for one day. What would you do?  Rebuild my patio, probably walk around shirtless whilst building and scratch the nether regions (just to see what the big deal was about it!)

8. Craziest place you had sex?  Now that would be telling!

9. What was/ is your favorite subject in highschool? Literature 

10. Your very first pet?  A cat and a chameleon.

11. The first toy you have memory of?  Beefo, our stuffed hippo.  My brother still refuses to give him to me after thirty years!

12. What do you spend most of your day doing? Writing, walking, working, tidying books.

13. What channel on TV do you watch the most?  My Sky planner.

14. What friend do you miss the most? The ones that meant the most.

15. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas.

16. What would be your ideal day?  To get in the car and drive to the beach with the sun beating down and a full day of fun in the sun.

17. Tennis shoes or sandals? Tennis shoes.

18.  Slow dance or fast dance? Slow. 

Now there were many more questions, but I’m having too much fun sitting next to you chatting.  Tell me about your weekend and did you get a chance to visit Hugh’s blog hop?  Let’s order another cup and chat…

  1. Sips cup of chocolate hazelnut decaf and unwinds, gazing at the stars. It is a beautiful night! I’d tell you about the reddish-pink flowers blooming next to our door and the ducks I saw in the pond this morning. I’d tell you about the lizards which run rampant at work, taking off whenever I pull out my cell for a quick pic.

    I’d tell you I made progress on editing my next book, and how great ‘The Theory of Everything’ was. How it moved me to tears.

    I’d tell you about slathering homemade vapor goop on my boyfriend because his allergies are kicking his ass. And, about how it surprises him each time I do it. Apparently, he’s a “grownup” and can do it himself.

    I’d tell you how I’m almost finished a 7-day stretch at work and waiting patiently for Thursday – the start of a 6-day mini-vacation.

    I’d tell you I will have much more to talk about next time we have coffee.

    And, I’d tell you how much I appreciate you. The time you put into blogging and sharing little bits of yourself with your readers.

    I’d say:

    Thank you, for being you. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Jess! I’d love to see photos of the pond and the lizard – when you catch him that is. Hope the allergies ease up for your boyfriend. It’s awful when they flare up (but funny that he’s surprised by you taking such good care of him).

      I really appreciate you too and hope you have a chance to rest after working so hard. Hope the new, well newish job is getting better and you’re enjoying it. Looking forward to sharing a hazelnut hot chocolate again next week if you have time. Enjoy the rest of your week. xxx


  2. Weekend – husband watched 7.5hrs of international rugby – it was painful.

    • I caught some of the rugby but have to be in the mood to watch any sport. I also hate those marathon watches where the whole day goes and the Hubble sits watches sport. I get antsy and find something to build or destroy or move lol!

  4. I was so busy over the weekend, and you know why because you mentioned it in your post (thank you).

    I’m publishing a post all about it tomorrow. Am I planning another one? You’ll have to wait and see 🙂
