It's good to see you again. I'm glad we've decided to meet up regularly. It's been a month and I want to fill you in.
You would pour the tea (how kind) and I would sit back to settle in for a long chat. I would tell you that I am so glad to be back in this city. I often wonder if I will ever get bored of it but have decided that no, a river, beautiful bridges and a cathedral overlooking it all is the perfect combination. I would tell you that we are finally getting into Spring and how wonderful that is. If you were British you would roll your eyes at me and we would share tales of woe about how long the winter was. If you weren't of the British persuasion you would probably roll your eyes in exasperation and wonder why we talk about the weather so much and secondly why we are insisting on sitting outside.
I would laugh then and chatter away about how my friends and I are enjoying the longer evenings. How nearly every day this week we have popped on a coat and shoes and gone for evening walks. Sometimes along the river, sometimes up in the woods and once to a park that overlooked the city. It is good to get out after a day of revision.
At the words of revision you would look quizzically at me and ask me how it was going. I would bite into my cake before I answered and then tell you that it is going pretty well. That our church have kindly set up a space for us to work which is lovely and peaceful and less of a pressure cooker than the library is. I would tell you that I am feeling reasonably on top of it but it is hard to know if I am on the right track or not because every exam is slightly different.
If we were together now I would offer you another cup of tea and tell you about how revision seems impossible without a good cuppa next to me. We would laugh together about that. I would ask you about blogging, about what you are planning to post and what is inspiring you. I would confide that I am completely sold with bloglovin however I never used google reader so that may be a factor! I would tell you that I have been loving Julie Kirks series of better blogging and that there has been lots in there to think about and to act on.
I would offer you the second biscuit and as we picked up the crumbs from our plate I would ask you about what you are making at the moment. I would tell you that I really enjoyed the sewing bee and that I hope it inspires people to have a go and pick up a needle. I would smile as I told you how grateful and awed I was by the response my new quilt and the film I made got. That I am so inspired by the blogging community.
The tea would be nearly gone, just the dregs in the pot and the smells of imminent lunch would be wafting up to us from the restaurant next door. I would mention casually that I am missing the boy. That he is currently away on a
We would probably stand up and slowly walk back into town after paying our bill. We would say as we always do how nice it is to see each other and how wonderful blog friendships are. I would wave you off as I walked back to college and promise to see you again for another cup of tea soon.
If you were with me now, what would you tell me?
If you would like to write a "tea" post please add it to the linky at the bottom so we can all sit and share with you! The linky will be open for a week so you have plenty of time!
