Today’s writing assignment is to have a virtual cup of coffee. The idea is already out there on various blogs – Kate goes global and Girl with the Red hair and basically you write a post as if you were having a conversation over coffee starting each paragraph with “If we were having coffee right now”.
So here goes, have you got your coffee ready?
If we were having coffee right now I would tell you about what a roller coaster my job is right now. I am currently doing equivalent to two full-time jobs; my own and acting up in my former boss’s role. I am shattered but loving it. I told the Big Boss I wanted a challenge and boy have I got one. It’s a steep learning curve, to be honest its a virtual line but it is giving me a great sense of achievement.
If we were having coffee right now I would tell you how inspired I was by a comment made by Kate when she and her husband popped in for a visit last Sunday. She is aware of my lack of enthusiasm and engagement with my front garden and how I had been pondering grasses. But, despite having a beautiful garden based around grasses, she didn’t push them at me but suggested I adopt a similar approach to the back garden and develop a hardy exotic look. Obvious really but sometime you need someone else to point this out to you. I already have a list forming of plants to include!
If we were having coffee right now I would tell you how fab I thought the recent television series Odyssey was. It’s the best thing I have watched on television for a long time and I shall really miss it on a Sunday evening. I would also say that I felt the focus was all on presentation in the Great British Menu and not on excellent cooking and that I thought it was anyone’s to win in the Great British Bake-Off . I think Flora will do well if she could just find her confidence and self-belief.
If we were having coffee right now I would share with you how pleased I am to have broken my Twitter habit. The amount of time I have wasted over recent years staring at my timeline, and over the last year in particular, waiting for something interesting to read, is ridiculous. I am now trying to break the burgeoning SimCity habit that threatens to take its place. Did I tell you I have an addictive nature!
If we were having coffee right now I would be telling you all the things I plan to do this weekend. I have a weekend with no commitments so instead of just letting it unfold I am busy thinking, I could do this or that. I must learn to chill and just be!!!!
If we were having coffee right now I would tell you how much I am enjoying the WordPress Writing 101 course. It has helped me get out of a rut with my blog, it has allowed me to write about anything and not worry about people’s reactions. It has reminded me that its MY blog to do with what I want. I would tell you how much I have enjoyed writing this particular post and that it is definitely an idea I intend to carry on with on the blog maybe ever couple of weeks.
If we were having coffee right now I would ask you what you have been up to and whether we could have coffee at yours next time?
