If we were having coffee, I’m pretty sure coffee would swiftly turn into wine after the week I’ve had! A deliciously smooth French merlot-cabernet blend is what we’d be having. A Bordeaux to be exact! Cheers!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how I’ve never crammed so many activities and social engagements into one week before. Between work, socialising with friends, date nights, my first yoga class (which was not suitable for beginners no matter how much the instructor insisted it was perfect for me!!), and attempting to blog every day, there were simply not enough hours in the day. I didn’t sleep more than 9 hours total between Monday and Friday! I felt like I was constantly rushing off somewhere, as in true Char style I overbooked myself!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how I’ve signed up for Irish Sign Language (ISL) classes starting in January! I was inspired by the viral video of a Starbucks barista taking a deaf customer’s order. As someone with an interest in linguistics & languages, the study of sign language fascinates me. In my waitressing days, I often served people hard of hearing – how cool would it have been if I could sign with them?! I’m looking forward to the new year already!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how I am enjoying a certain gentleman’s company lately. But I wouldn’t divulge too much because I’m a lady 😉
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I haven’t gone for a run in over a week, and I’m supposedly running a 5K in two weeks. In Cork Airport. On the runway. At midnight. I’m hoping the novelty of it all will give me the adrenaline to keep running and not collapse from lack of training/fitness half way through.
If we were having coffee, I would probably bring up the Kardashian’s at some point because I feel like I would have really enjoyed Kris Jenner’s Gatsby themed birthday party!!! I’m not ashamed that I have taken a few notes for my 30th in two & a half years time!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about several of my blonde moments this week. From thinking I got myself in the Secret Santa at work (I didn’t, someone had just written my name on the outside of the folded piece of paper with the name of the person I’m buying for inside!), to almost walking out of the restaurant Friday evening without paying for our dinner (thankfully he had more sense than I did – and wouldn’t let me live it down either!), I’ve had some serious silly moments!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how I went to mass Saturday evening, and lit a candle for my Aunty Aiveen who passed away in the early hours of the morning. I haven’t been to mass in quite a while, and it surprised me how comforting listening to the sermon was. November is a month of remembering those who have passed. I wrote a little note, said a little prayer, and lit a couple of candles for my Grandad & Aunty Nuala. It felt right, and I was so glad that I did so ❤
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how excited I am for Christmas already. Lights & decorations have been going up all over Cork this week, and this makes my soul extraordinarily happy. I also had my first festive coffee from Starbucks this weekend – a toffee nut latte – the taste of which reminds me of getting through university lectures after work on Thursday evenings in 2012!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve really enjoyed recapping some of the highlights of my week like this! #WeekendCoffeeShare is a weekly blog hop hosted by Part-Time Monster. Don’t forgot to head over there for some more coffee & chats!
