Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

If we were having coffee, I would apologise for my absence last week. It was my birthday, and I was away for the weekend. It was my eldest daughter's birthday too - the day before mine. She was born at 7.40pm on the 15th of April - the absolute best early birthday present. It's hard … Continue reading Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

If we were having coffee I would tell you that, between interpreting jobs, I had a fun and creative week with my daughters. My eldest has a photography project due, so we set up a few spooky photo sessions (one of the artists she chose, Sarah Thompson, creates haunting images). The original shots are manipulated to create mood and atmosphere, … Continue reading Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

Meet the Barkers – Weekend Coffee Share

  If we were having coffee, we would be surrounded by the whole Barker clan! We often get together, but this weekend is a little different, because my brother is here for a visit. We all miss him. Andrew is the life and soul of the party; he is quick to laugh and always manages … Continue reading Meet the Barkers – Weekend Coffee Share

An announcement or two

I got a little impatient, as I am want to be, and released the first episode of The Collective today. I originally said the end of April, but I couldn't wait, so there you are! There are a number of options for people wanting to access the episode. If you wish, you can go straight … Continue reading An announcement or two

If we were having coffee, I would tell you a story…

If we were having coffee we would be relaxing on my sofa, feet up, with our drinks close by as we nattered about our week. Call it what you will, gabbed, chatted, chewed the fat (to throw in an American phrase) - we would set the world to rights. I'd want to know everything you've been up to, … Continue reading If we were having coffee, I would tell you a story…

If we were having coffee…there would be a lot to discuss.

If we were having coffee I might glance over my shoulder from time to time, and be forced to admit that I'm worried about retribution. I pranked my daughter a few days ago and she swore payback - she's extremely good at it! This would no doubt lead to a conversation about pranks, and I … Continue reading If we were having coffee…there would be a lot to discuss.

If we were having coffee…there would only be time for one cup.

If we were having coffee, it would be ridiculously early (sorry). I'm going on a trip to the seaside today - Bridlington to be exact. It's a place my dad particularly loved and, as it's his birthday, my sisters and I always take this day to do things to remember him. So, we go to … Continue reading If we were having coffee…there would only be time for one cup.

If we were having coffee…we would be dicussing strong female role models

If we were having coffee I would avoid talking about one job, just so I could prattle on about my other. It's a beautiful day, so we would be outside in the garden, sitting beneath a large red umbrella with an array of tasty treats between us. Perhaps we would have a cold drink or, … Continue reading If we were having coffee…we would be dicussing strong female role models

Three…two…one…and we’re live! Weekend Coffee Share

If we were having coffee, I would apologise for the radio silence; loosely translated as a distinct lack of comments due to an incredibly busy week. We would be sat in my garden because the sun is positively beaming, and I have so much energy I can't deal with confined spaces! You would catch me … Continue reading Three…two…one…and we’re live!

Weekend Coffee Share – In which I’m mostly too tired to talk!

If we were having coffee, I'd probably let you do most of the talking. You don't mind of course, some weeks are like that. I worked more hours than usual and because I can't give details about the assignments I undertake, it can get a little ambiguous! I would tell you that I worked a … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share – In which I’m mostly too tired to talk!
