Sharing a Cuppa

Hi, hi, it's so lovely to see you.  Come on in, but don't take your coat off, we're not stopping.  We're off round the corner for coffee and cake.
The Granny of a pupil at The Boy Child's school is hosting a MacMillan Coffee Morning.
There will be cake.
Lots of cake.
What's that?  You won't know anyone?  No need to worry, as I'm sure I won't know that many people, either.
How have you been?  How has September been for you?  It's always a time of transition and new experiences in this house.  The Boy Child is happy to be in Year 2, but we have all been taken aback by the amount of homework he has most evenings.
The new Head has made a positive start, is taking a keen interest in The Boy Child and has great expectations of and for him.  We are encouraged.
I am meeting a lady on Monday who is a possible candidate for helping The Boy Child in the afternoons.  She sounds very nice on the telephone, so I am hopeful she will be a good fit for The Boy Child.  
Nearly there.  Do you see the balloons on the gate post?
Are you a baker?  I love to watch Bake Off on Tuesday evenings, but my baking expertise is limited to biscuits and cookies these days.  I fancy making cakes, but The Brainy One always says he doesn't need the calories!  
We're here.
Oh, my, just smell that.
Brewing coffee and fresh-out-of-the-oven cakes.

This post has been brought to you in association with Abi's invitation to share a cup of tea.

Doug will say he doesn't want the calories, but he always partakes. :o)

A lovely visit today, Ruth. And I really love the photo you chose for your post today.

Thank you so much for joining in with me this month Ruth. That cake stand looks lovely! I'm so glad things are on the up for the boy child and that the headmaster is taking a keen interest.

I was so excited to read your comment on my blog. I couldn't find your email address on your blog. Would you mind emailing me at abigail (dot) beach (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk

And then I can email you my address!

That all sounds positive. Glad to hear it. Oooh. Too much cake. I'm trying hard to stay off wheat products but it is sooo hard

Sometimes we just have to take that little step to join in with people we don't know and then we walk away having had an awesome time. The cakes looked so yum, thanks for sharing with me today

A great place to share a cuppa and a cake and for such a good cause.
Pleased to hear that things are gradually falling into place for TBC, change always takes a while to deal with. But he has a great mum fighting his corner so I know he will get all the help he needs.

What a great way to host this month! I'm not much of a baker either, but TSO is excellent and can be relied upon to rustle up a few buns when we're in need.

I'm glad to hear that term seems to be settling down

Lovely time, thank you. I always try to support Macmillan because they were so supportive of my cousin during his bowel cancer treatment. They helped us all and mow we all help them

Becky said...

Loved reading this and the photo looked lovely too!

Oh, what a tantalising just-out-of-the-oven smell - mouth watering here already! So glad to hear your son has settled in well and hope the new helper will be just the ticket.
