Let's sit and have a cup of tea

That was good timing, the kettle's just boiled - what would you prefer, tea or coffee?  I'm so pleased Abi came up with the idea of gathering people around a virtual cuppa on the 27th of each month.

After deciding on our drinks, I'll probably a suggest we take our mugs into the conservatory where we can sit and comment on how ironic it is that the weather has been glorious all week and then the minute we get to the weekend the temperatures plummet. We'll probably smile as we realise how very British that sounds, drinking tea and talking about the weather. 

If you've chosen to sit on the sofa, I'll apologise for the excited dog who will insist on sitting next to you, she'll be hoping you give into those big puppy dog eyes and let her have the last crumbs from your slice of cake.  Oh, I should also warn you that she is partial to a cup of tea herself so don't take your eyes off her, she's not to be trusted!

We'll probably chat about how our weeks have been and I will tell you how I had been a bit fed up at work but I've been assigned some new projects which I am happy about; I do like a new challenge. I'll be asking you whether you feel that your whole attitude to life in general seems to be affected by the weather.  If I wake up to sunshine, the world seems a better place, I'll put my favourite sing-along tunes on in the car and arrive at work in a good frame of mood.  Do you have a favourite cd that makes you sing out loud in the privacy of your car?  The one I'm listening to a lot at the moment is a compilation of George Michael's greatest hits.  So if you ever find yourself in the car in front of me in a queue of traffic and I appear to be shouting to myself, I'm probably just singing 'I don't want your freedom ....' at the top of my voice.  (I don't think Will.i.am or Jessie J are going to be fighting over me to be part of their The Voice team though)

It's nice to have some company this weekend after being home alone last weekend while the rest of the family were doing their 3 Peaks Challenge.  It's been great to see you here and whilst I'd love for you to stay longer, I'm sure you want to head on over to Abi's to see if anyone else has put the kettle on yet!

I'd have to agree about the sun. We've had a lovely day here today and we got lots of things done simply because we woke up to the sunshine I think

I am so with you on the weather thing. My day is amazing when the sun is out but if it is raining I am pretty down in the dumps! Glad it's not just me. Thank you so much for joining in too.

It has been a pleasure to pop in and glad things are looking up on the work front :). A lovely read and I'll be sitting with my hand over the top of the cup!

I'm really loving the Matt Nathanson album, Modern Love. It's a great sing along!

Hi Deb :) I think I would fit right in at your home; talking about the weather (we Canadians do that lots), excited dog (yes, I have one too) and I love George Michael!
