If we were having coffee I’d say, are you ready for this?

I’ve been up for hours and I don’t know what time it is, and I haven’t had my coffee yet.  Isla already cracked some eggs, put her wellies on, and now wants to fly a kite.  That’s fine.  I love my experimental, outdoorsy, artistic child.  But lemme say something here.  Coffee before kites.

I have a coffee now.  Hi.  I feel better now.  How are you?

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about last night.  Sorry I had to hang up on you. Isla got into the cinnamon.  It became an event.

If we were having coffee, I’d say she fell asleep and I wanted to write.  But I sat in this very spot with my cider and nothing happened.

And so, I went to bed with Ben and Jerry.  Neil was fine with it.  Trust me.

And, today is another day.

And speaking of coffee, check out Crystal at The Cappuccino Traveler.  One of the things on my to-do list is ‘Visit all the bookshops in the world’.  Crystal’s kinda doing that with coffeeshops.  I get caffeinated just reading her blog.  Which is good.  Because most of the coffee places around here are inaccessible or serve shite coffee.

I still think the best place to get coffee on this island is my house.  What do you think?

Also, also.  Go visit Katie at Fatty McCupcakes, Christine at I’m Sick And So Are You and go gallivanting with An Historian About Town.  The thing is this.  It seems I’ve been reading their blogs for longer than they’ve actually been writing them.  And that’s a groovy thing.

If we were having coffee I’d thank you for the questions and book recommendations last week.  If I’ve already read what you said I should read that just means you’re good people.

The questions from last week’s post will be answered in a post next week.  Maybe a few posts.

I don’t have any books to share this week.  I’ve been too busy prepping for THE TRIP. Which is happening two weeks from tomorrow.  Did I mention that?  The to-do list is done.  Haven’t gotten to the RELAX part, though.  Looking forward to that part.

My trip-planning escapades (really) will appear on the blog during the week.

Stay tuned to see:
