If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would, naturally discuss Christmas. Of our presents, of all the food we ate, of what to do with leftovers and how we are feeling sluggish and in need of some simple eating and exercise.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would decide that probably the best thing to do with leftover ham is sandwiches, especially with cheese and mustard and, of course, toasted. But what to do with all that chocolate?

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would admire the beautiful gerberas I got given on Christmas Eve.  We would also look at the cala lilies, and I would show you the courgette flowers on the little courgette plants grown from the free supermarket seeds.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would discuss the weather, because, although we are desperately in need of rain, it would be nice to see more sunny days again.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would ask you if you would like to stay to dinner, enjoy a glass of wine and….a slice of pizza.  You naturally say yes, as the diet starts 3rd January.
