My coffee is cold…


Again. On the weekends, I love the fact that I get to use one of my beloved over-sized coffee mugs to drink my coffee  rather than the Contigo thermos(es) that I use when travelling to work, etc. Today is a lovely mug from The Madonna Inn and I’ve already had to stick it back into the microwave 3 times.

I’m not going to stop living my life.” I asked, “What about the risks to other people?” The conversation went from there and it was an interesting one. And it got me thinking – what would you do? What would I REALLY do? Continue reading
