Want to talk? Join me for a virtual coffee date
Grab a chair. Have a cushion and make yourself comfortable. Fancy a biscuit? I’m really looking forward to our Virtual Coffee Date.
If we were meeting today for coffee:
I’d tell you how annoyed I got yesterday in the restaurant at the supermarket we go to. We have this ritual – go and have 2 cups of coffee (one decaff of course) a couple of sandwiches and then do our shopping. This happens on Mondays, the day of the week I have real difficulty with so it gives the week a relaxed start.
Not last time. It was like being in a playground. Now, don’t roll your eyes like that and mutter ‘typical retired intolerance’.
I know it’s the school holidays and that children will be shopping with mums and grandmas (interesting that I didn’t see dads) but do they have to run around the restaurant screaming? I felt really sorry for the staff who were carrying hot drinks around. There would have been all hell to pay if there had been a collision. Sadly, most of the time the adults were on their phones seemingly oblivious to it all.
Do you get annoyed with interruptions like these to your coffee breaks?
If we were meeting for coffee today
I’d tell you how fed up,I am with the weather. I don’t feel as if we’ve had any real sun. I got my summer clothes out around April I think but haven’t really worn them very much. Don’t you feel cheated? Weather over the late Spring and Summer is always a bit hit and miss in England but somewhere there is usually a period of warm days. I never realised how the weather affects me.
Have you heard of SAD? It’s a condition where seasonal changes can lead to depression and is often associated with the winter and lack of sunshine folks need light during the winter months. Well, I think I’ve got the summer version! We went to Normandy but that wasn’t much better. It’s not far from the English coast though so there will be similarities I suppose.
How do you deal with the miserable weather?
If we were meeting for coffee today:
I’d share with you that I’m thinking of starting a business! Not sure what but it will have an online feature and include stuff I’m passionate about. Having got to this age I do know about getting the right people to help you with your dreams and boy, have I got a couple who are in my corner. Not revealing yet but I’m a bit excited!
Have you are passion that you could turn into a business?
Well, my list of things to talk about is really long, but I think I need to let you get a word in!
