Coffee by boxplayer


Our new local coffee shop.

Headache cleared this morning thank goodness. Popped out early to the bicycle shop to put my bicycle in for its complimentary first service - picking up cinnamon buns on the way.

It was ready in a couple of hours so I walked back out just before 12 to pick it up. Got back and immediately set to preparing my mozzarella and avocado salad, making my tea and so forth - then settling myself in the sitting room to watch an episode of Heroes - my relaxing lunch routine while the weather stays too cold to eat in the garden.

I switched on the TV and rather than the normal Bargain Hunt - there was some old footage of the Duke of Edinburgh - realised from the banner that he'd finally died. Reached for my phone and to see a million and one WhatsApp messages - many from work.

And others from gin club - rather black humouredly along the lines of 'he's really died this time'. The reason being that most of gin club still works for government so we often get 'inside' knowledge - and there have been a couple of previous false alarms where we thought he'd passed on but this time it was indeed for real. He had his controversial moments but like a lot of people I commiserate with the Queen losing her husband of so many years. I can't possibly imagine what that must be like.

We tried our first Deliveroo delivery today - from one of our haunts of normal times - the Peking Chef - a vegetarian set menu involving the usual spring rolls, seaweed, veggie duck, rice and bean curd.

Watched What Men Want - an entertaining romp - and stopped half way to eat cinnamon buns with tea.
