Been shopping today, and along with several gorgeous Jeff Bank shirts, I splashed out on a decent coffee grinder to feed my love of Coffee. That along with a bag of coffee beans from Costa Coffee I am a happy man! Will be awake for weeks to come, but happy!
Today was day two at the Technology for Marketing and Advertising Expo at Earls Court in London, and it saw me in back to back meetings until I left.
After two days, I managed one seminar and I think I spent more than 5 minutes at only a handful of exhibitors stands – the rest of the time was spent in meetings and networking around the coffee cups. So this is my view of the day!
It’s been a weird day of sorts today, working at home in the morning and then in the office waiting on others in the afternoon; who didn’t turn up after all. To cap that off I was subjected to Satin’s own blend of coffee! I cannot describe just how bad it was! Maybe the joy of having my own coffee machine at home has ruined me, but even I thought that after years of working in an office, with vended coffee, I was immune to it’s inept taste. Apparently not.
Choices, choices! Finally managed to sit down this evening with a cup of coffee, but the choice of biscuit is causing me some problems! Whether to stick with the trusted Rich Tea, or Malted Milk or to take a risk with a pretty enticing chocolate muffin, or a sneaky KitKat!?!
Apparently my photo from yesterday was too pornographic for some browsers to display (is there some weird fetish with woolen gloves that I don’t know about?), so I thought that I would make it clear in the title for today’s photograph.
I’ve been working at home for the most part of today, and then out for coffee and a meeting of minds, so my coffee machine at home has been getting a bashing, and this is my preferred coffee of the moment!
This Friday has been tackled with precision – and a heck of a lot of coffee! Probably, if I am honest a little too much coffee! But then then is the downside of having an espresso machine within reach. Personally, I have lost track of just how many cups I have had, but I am typing rather fast, so probably quite a few! Other tactics employed today? Firstly purposely forgetting to log into Skype (which has reduced the amount of calls to a minimum) and secondly realizing that it is feckin freezing outside, so I am grounded in doors!
Time to reduce the caffeine levels in my bloodstream I feel!
I might be a bit of a gadget-freak, but I also have another love which is coffee. My Gaggia espresso maker has pride of place in my kitchen, however for the past few weeks I’ve been missing my frothing-widget which has made it difficult to use. Joy-of-joys, today I received a replacement! Mr Gaggia is back.
This shot is also in respect for the pending visit of my sister this weekend, who would’ve been most disappointed to learn of it’s inability to make a decent coffee!
Anyway, this shot was taken and then tweaked in Photoshop to apply the colour and mask out the cups to make them stand out.
