This week, I am linking up with Older Mum in a Muddle who is running a project called One Week. The idea is that you post a photograph and a few words or short(ish) paragraph which capture the spirit of the time of year. It can be photo of anything that distills and diarises your experience of this week. Details are here if you would like to join in.
Regular readers of this blog will know that I love and adore a really good cup of coffee. The whole experience matters to me, from choosing the right cup to suit the mood, through putting the right coffee in the espresso machine, to getting the right amount of froth on the milk and putting it all together. I love the whole ritual and wrote about it once here.
So for me, giving up coffee for Lent is a Very Big Deal. So big in fact that I’m a bit late in embracing the challenge. It’s taken me since Shrove Tuesday to talk myself into it. But I’m finally there: deep breath and drum roll – this is my last cup of coffee until Easter Sunday.
