If We Were Having Coffee…

If We Were Having Coffee is a meme I’ve seen floating around for a while and believe it should be credited to Awesome Life but I connected with it via Becky!

I’m going to try and use it each month as a way to wrap up my month.  So grab your drink of choice and let’s chat!

 

 

 

If We Were Having Coffee I’d say my Goodreads challenge has started off well.  4 books read this month, not the 6 I was hoping for but never mind because I did get in a re-read of my fave book ever, To Kill a Mockingbird, and I still loved it.  Unfortunately the production I’d planned to go and see at the Birmingham Repertory has been cancelled, something to to with Harper Lee’s estate and the rights, bit gutted about that.

 

If We Were Having Coffee I’d let you know that my book MeetUp is going well.  I’m getting 6-8 regular members coming to our book swap coffee mornings which is a perfect number.  Not so good for my TBR as I seem to be bringing home more than I get rid of….nothing knew there then!

If We Were Having Coffee I’d give you a laugh and tell you about the third Xscape room I went to at the beginning of January.  I’d treated some family members to a game for Christmas so we all went along and were split into 2 groups for “The Bank Job”.  Well, girls against boys didn’t work and I failed again.  So much for third time lucky..pfft! Still good fun though 🙂

If We Were Having Coffee I’d tell you I finally went to see the new Mary Poppins. An enjoyable couple of hours but still love the original more.  I don’t know if you can beat something you’ve grown up with, and know all the words to all the songs, but it was good nonetheless!

How’s your January been?

    My 4-year-old is obsessed with Mary Poppins, and has suddenly discovered an interest in listening to the Mary Poppins Returns soundtrack on repeat, and I’m just done. I didn’t love it to begin with, and I’m well on my way to hating it. On the bright side, Sister Suffragette isn’t stuck in my head anymore…

    I tried to watch The Bookshop on Netflix but gave up …

    Good to hear that your meet up is going so well Lindsay. Sound like fun!

      I found the book really boring as well 😔

    I have yet to see the new Mary Poppins but it looks great. I am also looking forward to the Silent companions so I must check out your review.

    Have a nice week!
