If we were having coffee 25 June 2016 #WeekendCoffeeShare

June 25, 2016

If we were having coffee, I’d first comment on the weather as we made a coffee {or tea or hot chocolate}. It’s been freezing here in Sydney and there has been snow up in the mountains. Being the wuss I am, I am currently wearing a down jacket and not looking forward to getting out of the house for groceries some time today. Sure, it’s sunny but it’s 8 degrees! If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how exhausting…

June 17, 2016

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was the centre of her mum and dad’s world. She was the first-born child and had confidence that was way beyond her years. When she started kindergarten before the age of three, she felt right at home. After all, school was where she wanted to be. However, at that young age, she learnt two lessons the hard way. One was that adults could let you down and the other, some people…
