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 sit in my living room and have cake. It’s my mum’s birthday, and she always makes way too much cake, so I’m sure there’ll be plenty leftover.
It’s gone cold here again. Last week was still summer-y, now it’s decidedly autumn. We’d sit inside and unfortunately we’d have to listen to the world’s worst trumpeter practising next door. Seriously. I wish he’d invest in some soundproofing.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that this week has been quite stressful as I have had to play taxi and get my dad and gran to doctor’s appointments. That also involved two very early mornings for me and a lot of afternoons spent sitting in the car because they couldn’t tell me how long the appointments were for. On the plus side, I’ve managed to read a few chapters of Man in the Corner by Nathan Besser.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that our lovely fellow Weekend Coffee Sharer Corina did a Tarot reading for me. Technically, she already did one last week, online, as she is trying to get back into it before she offers her services. And what the cards told her was spot on! Bearing in mind, we only know each other through our blogs, and I couldn’t shuffle the cards myself (and unfortunately I also missed out on the in-person reading and reveal of the cards, my favourite part) – most of it was spot-on or so relatable that I know what it was referring to. To be sure, I asked her whether she could do a clarifying spread and she did a five card yes/no spread and a pendulum reading for me – again revealing the issues I’m facing and giving valuable advice. I’ll definitely share the link with you when her business is up and running because she’s awesome, talented and offers very insightful advice, and if you believe that the cards can help guide your way you should definitely check her out!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that next to taxi-service and work I spent quite a bit of time writing for this blog. I know it doesn’t look like much yet as most of it was prepping posts and scheduling future ones, but it’s getting there. So don’t be surprised if you see my blog pop up more often in your newsfeed, I’m playing catch-up with all the reviews I didn’t have time for when I wrote my thesis.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my way to relax these past few evenings has been watching reruns of Firefly, and Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Yes it’s cheesy (that’s the whole point) but it’s short (each Act is 13 minutes) and hilarious and exactly the right thing when you need a good laugh.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that this is it for this week. Check out the other Weekend Coffee Sharers and say hello.
Thank you for having coffee with me. Same time, next week?

Hope this week isn’t as busy. Thanks for the cake! Happy Birthday, Literati Girl’s Mom!
Thanks you for the wonderful words about your Tarot readings! I’m looking forward to the new venture. I enjoy doing it and helping to shed some light on situations for people. I hope you have a better week this week than last!
Happy Birthday to your Mom! 🙂
Tarot reading sounds fun, I haven’t seen a psychic in years. So interesting though, I really should look into a reading. I’ve been doing some fall baking myself, I love making pumpkin sweet treats. Anyway, great post. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, very much for the cake. I’ve saved a piece of Mars Bar Slice for you.
