COFFEE IN THE SUN

What a glorious day it was yesterday here in Kent, in fact it was the hottest day of the year so far, please can we have many more days like this.  Corinne came over to have her hair and nails done at Emma’s salon in Folkestone so we had a little trip to the shops then a nice coffee in the sunshine at Djangos cafe & petit bistro.  Asking for a piece of cake, well you must have cake with coffee, I had the chocolate fudge cake and Corinne had the walnut and coffee cake.  How amazing is the size of these cakes and you get cream and ice-cream with them, the ice-cream tasted like cornish so it was delicious, no diet today then.

Think we may be visiting this coffee-house again.

VISITOR FOR WEEKEND

It was nice to have some company now that I am feeling much better and Mia was just the sunshine I needed.  She does make me laugh and really enjoyed herself, the weekend went very quickly but we managed some painting, reading her stories, put some new plants in the garden and played some games of dominoes, where she won every game!

Early night for me and a rest, hopefully some writing will be accomplished this week and I can get back to normal.  Was a joy to see the sunshine a couple of days this week so lets hope for a lot more, can’t wait to get my garden sorted and looking nice again.

LADIES WHO LUNCH AT THE HUNGRY HORSE, FOLKESTONE

The once a month lunch date seems to come round quicker every month but I am not complaining as for me and I think some others as well it is the best day of the month.  I really do look forward to it so much and we really do have such a laugh and always have a birthday to celebrate and lots of news to share.

The best bit of news this time was that Sharon is to be a Nan in August, I should say a very excited Nan, so that will need to be celebrated.

Lynda’s daughter Jo joined us today so she now knows who these ladies are that her Mum lunches with every month, was lovely to see her so happy and looking good, must have something to do with the new man in her life.

The puddings seem to get better and better here, in fact everything is good from the service to food and the general ambiance of the place, then you have the great prices, what more do you want.  Roll on next month and yes we are back here again.

WORLD BOOK DAY

CASTLE HILL primary school got into dressing up for world book day, teachers included.

Lots of good looking book people for WORLD BOOK DAY 2017  Also Mia’s 5th birthday so lots of clebrations.

LADIES WHO LUNCH AT THE HUNGRY HORSE, FOLKESTONE, KENT

I have to say that this was one of the best lunches we have had as not only was the company outstanding as always but the service and food was so wonderful and to prove how great it all was we have booked up here for March and April.

Considering it was my first time out it was so good to see all my friends as I have missed them loads.  Lynda was back from gallivanting in Spain then Madera with her daughter, Sharon was missing as she was in London with the hubby.  Carol is off to Australia for March to see her daughter so she will be missed next time but then in April we should have the full 9 of us.  April’s could get messy as it will be Corinne’s birthday lunch and then she is staying at mine, I can see cocktails and all sorts going on.  I can’t wait!

Very nice wine for £7 on a Wednesday but we just had three bottles this time.

As usual the food was delicious with no complaints from any of us, well that is not including Jackie and her dessert, you can guarantee she will get the dodgy one where ever she goes lol.

There were a few conversations about Corinnes MEAT (sausages) but I am afraid I cannot print them but it did cause rather a lot of laughing.

This month we celebrated Jackies birthday and she got some lovely presents, some I really wanted for myself.  Jackie had the baked Alaska but the meringue was rather runny so she said!  I love the desserts at Hungry Horse and even better was the fact that I had a voucher for free desserts so we all had to have one, I know there are only four pictures but we were too busy getting stuck in lol.

Sheila gave us a few laughs as she finished the bottle of wine, then when the bill was paid we all had a smile on our face as it worked out to £8 each what an absolute bargain.  Looking forward to next month and more laughs.

SUNDAY LOVE

I am looking forward to a good week after being ill for nearly four weeks I think I am coming out the other side, I am not saying I am 100% but I can see light at the end of the tunnel.  I also really want to get back into my writing and I have not felt like that for a long time.  The only thing I have been doing is reading and wow have I read some great books lately, check out the reviews on my page.

So, what is the love about?  

Valentines Day, when did it become February full of love month?  I have nothing against love but for all us single girls it does all become a bit much, every magazine, paper, TV station, adverts, advertising boards all full of bloody love.  I really do not think that all the people who wish to buy a card or present need so much reminding about what they can get and where, we are not stupid.  Rant over, have a great day x
