When life hands you coffee…

When life hands you coffee... drink it while it's hot.

Oh, the irony. You may remember our much lauded French press from my post last week? You know, the one that allowed me time to stretch and welcome the day with energy and joy?

Not 24 hours after I hit publish on that post did the damn thing fall apart. A screw went missing and do you think we can find it anywhere? Chances are it went down the drain when I was washing it.

Isn’t it the way though?

You comment, “Oh, my baby is sleeping so well now. They hardly ever wake during the night!” Cue: hours of screaming and crying and general misery. (And that’s just the parents.)

Damn you, Murphy, and your ridiculous law.

Needless to say, Ben and I had quite a hearty chuckle at the expense of our French press and then rapidly moved on to the inevitable question – what to do about coffee now? I know it’s a decision you await eagerly and I will certainly keep you posted.


Winners of ‘Notes from a Blue Bike’

On a far more interesting note, here are the five lucky winners of last week’s giveaway. The five lucky ladies below will soon receive their copy of Tsh Oxenreider’s wonderful new book, of Notes from a Blue Bike.
