If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would, of course, talk about the weather. About flooding in New Zealand and Germany, about forest fires in Siberia and Oregon, about climate change and where we might be headed. I show you what Bowen Street looked like on Monday morning after the storm, and that wasn’t the worst by any means in the city.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would tell you that I think I need to organise my Wednesdays a bit better. You say, well what did you do today? And I say I did a load of laundry, caught up with the ironing, read a good part of a book, thought about a blog post, and went into town. You say that seems OK for a morning, you say I guess so! I tell you I went to one of my favourite cafes, Squirrel, and enjoyed one of Maude’s chicken sandwiches and a melting moment filled with passionfruit curd. You say, well if nothing else you treated yourself today and I say yes I did.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would show you my new ankle boots. I would tell you they were a real bargain and are comfortable. I tell you that I had been looking for a while for the perfect pair and was happy with what I found. You say they look comfortable and stylish.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…well, why don’t you stay for dinner? There is cauliflower cheese, made with a good, strong cheddar and lashings of pepper. You say oh yes please – it is ages since I have had that. So we sit down to dinner, open a bottle of wine, and continue our conversation.
