#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee… On August 28

Hello my lovely booklovers,

how are you? Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, a blog hop by the lovely Diana over at Part Time Monster. Every weekend we get together for virtual coffees and a little casual chat. How has this past week been for you?

If we were having coffee today, we’d either sit outside in the shade of the tree, or inside with the windows closed and the air con on. Your choice. It’s around 34°C today and quite humid – I had to hold my head under cold water around noon to cool down and it didn’t do much. You’re welcome to have coffee or tea, though I can also offer you cold water and fruit juice.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about the Actor Book Tag. I’ve just completed mine, comparing attributes of my favourite actors / TV roles with favourite characters from books. I only noticed at the end that I didn’t pick a character from a single movie – they’re all from TV shows. And some shows and books show up more than once. I guess that says a lot about the sort of shows I watch, characters I like and books I read. I didn’t tag anyone, but if you want to do it, feel free! I’d love to see your choices!

If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that my thesis is coming along, though at a slower pace than I’d like. It took me ages to complete the case study I was working on this week. But now I’m sort of in the swing of things, finally, so I’m hoping the rest will be easier to do now that I found a format that works for me.

If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I got some amazing news this week! My bestie sent me a plane ticket out of the blue so I can come and visit her in the UK in October and finally meet her daughter! And then, later that same day, another very good friend (my best friend from university) asked me to be her Maid of Honour! She’d initially asked me to be her bridesmaid, but then texted me asking whether I’d mind not being bridesmaid after all. And yes, that hurt a little at first, but I figured it’s her wedding, so who am I to complain? That’s when she promoted me 😀 It’s quite hard to help plan a wedding and put together a proper hen do from a different country though, so I hope I’ll do alright by her!

I’m afraid I haven’t done much else this week. I’ve done a lot of studying outdoors to soak up the sun. How about you?

Sorry, this Weekend Coffee Share is so short. The other Weekend Coffee Sharers want to see you as well, I’m sure.

Thank you for having coffee with me!

    So glad to here of your impending trip and wedding duties. My best friend lives several states away from me, so I love having a trip coming up to see her.

    How much longer do you have on your thesis?
