On Wednesday night, we have a little tradition of drinking tea and eating cakes whilst watching Great British Bake Off. I was busy with meeting on Wednesday and didn’t have time to bake, but as my meeting was a few stops away from Baker Street, I thought I would check out the Dunkin’ Donuts to see if they sold PSL’s (they don’t in the UK), so I had to settle for a regular coffee and half-dozen doughnuts for our evening treat.
We have a lot of friends and family birthdays in October and November (over a dozen), the problem is by the beginning of October all card shops stock are Christmas Cards, which is annoying when you are trying to find a decent 40th birthday card for your husband among shelves full of santa and reindeer. When I noticed empty shelves in a card store I figured, I would get a head start this year and bulk buy my cards for the next few months. Feeling chuffed I popped into Caffe Nero for a hazelnut latte (that was extremely sweet) but they did have these amazing cups to promote the Britain on Film project, featuring still from old films set in Britain.
I mentioned before starting this project that I was going to use it as an excuse to explore more coffee shops from The London Coffee App, I’m lucky that I have two shops from the list within walking distance from our home. Admittedly one is a lot closer to home, but the other is handy if I need to run errands. As I had to pop to the bank and it was National Coffee Day, I thought it was a good excuse to celebrate and try something new, this Kalita (Slow Brew) coffee.
I blogged about my fun sewing day with friends when I attempted to make a Star Wars themed project bag, As I was trying to concentrate I needed caffeine to fuel the little grey cells.
During October I am participating in the #5FFPhoto Challenge on Instagram, I have run my own knitting themed photo challenge before and am sad to admit I didn’t complete that challenge. I thought I would do better this time (as I have been using Instagram more now), but on the second day I forgot to take a photo, so quickly had to take a quick snap of my coffee the next morning. (So quick I forgot to add my number sticker).
#100cupsofcoffee is a chance for me to blog about my experiences whilst drinking coffee around London and give you an insight into my daily life. You can read about the origins of the project here.
