Virtual Coffee

It's Tuesday so you know what that means.  Pull up a chair and join me and everyone over at Amy's for a brew.

Wow 1st of February already, where did January go, it seemed to go so fast.  Not that I am complaining, it is such a dull month.  Although for me I feel I had quite a good month.  I had the Torchlit Tour at the beginning of the month and finished off with the felt making course over the weekend.  Let's just hope February is just as successful : ).

Well if I were really meeting you for coffee today I would tell you that I am very, very excited.  Tomorrow I will be spending my evening at the O2 with the man himself, yes, really, USHER.  As a result of this I will not be blogging tomorrow, instead I shall be spending the day with my Mum, preparing ourselves for the evening ahead.  As well as that I think I would be too excited to concentrate on anything for too long : ).

If I were really meeting with you for coffee today, I would have to tell you that I have really had enough of this cold weather now, and am ready for Spring to take hold.  For the flowers to start blooming and the blossom to be covering the trees.  For longer, sunnier days and hotter weather.  I know it won't be long, but I would really appreciate it, if it could come just a little bit sooner.  I have a lot of lovely days out planned for this sort of weather and I am starting to get stuck for ideas of things to do that don't involve too much time outside in the cold.

If we were really meeting for coffee today I would tell you that I have been searching for more craft workshops or groups that I can try out or possibly become part of.  I really fancy trying stained glass, mosaics, soap making, pottery and decoupage this year, and who knows what else I may discover an interest in throughout the year, I am sure more will be added to this list.  Can you think of anything I may want to give a try?

I'd love to hear what you have been up to and what you have planned for the month ahead.  please feel free to link to either mine or Amy's Blog to join us for coffee.

See you in a couple of days

  1. What is the 02? i have no idea what that is. I, too, am glad that it is a new month, I am ready for February and Spring! We are in the middle of tons of snow and ice and school is closed for the third day tomorrow. Did I mention I am ready for Spring? : ) Thanks for coffee!

  2. It was originally the Millenium Dome but is now used as a leisure facility where they hold concerts and shows etc, there is also a huge range of bars and restaurants, it is really good there, it is the first time I have been since 2000 so it has changed a lot since the last time.
    I hope the snow melts away soon and I too cannot wait for spring to take hold : )
