How did I get here from a Coffee Festival?

If you follow my other blogs, Bundu Bashing and Other Wheelchair Adventures and A Bite from Life’s Apple, you will have noticed that we went to the London Coffee Festival yesterday.  Up at 5am, arrived at 11am, drank lots of coffee, ate lots of samples and spoke to lots of people, left at 2pm and by 2.30pm on the walk back to the car I stumbled across this lovely little shop near the Old Truman Brewery off Brick Lane in London…..

One small purchase later (it’s a secret), and I am really happy because I hadn’t expected to find the perfect gift whilst out at a coffee festival 250 miles from home!

Tired but happy we head home for Lancashire.  At 8pm we stumble into the house exhausted but replete from a great day out.  It isn’t too often that hubby takes time off work for a day of frivolity – it was lovely.




  1. Lovely for the two of you:) I am hoping to convince my husband to come on a train to the Goldfields in a couple of months, it’s an overnight stay and he isn’t that keen but I’ll keep trying!

    • I am intrigued- what is the Goldfields? Yep, keep trying and also find something on the trip that will appeal to him and come from that angle. Otherwise add an activity in just for him. Good luck!

  2. The West Australian Goldfields, is an area where gold was discovered and is still mined. It has a rich history and very colourful characters 🙂 The train trip takes several hours and travels through beautiful farming country and bush before arriving in the red-soiled outback, it’s a very special journey.
    If you’re interested, the link takes you to photos of the twin cities of Kalgoorlie-Boulder (more country towns).

    • Sounds amazing – and interesting to a girl from South Africa which is pitted with gold mines as well. What a coincidence that you mention Kalgoorlie – we have friends here in the UK who lived there for many years! I would love, love, love to visit Australia one day I will as it is on my wish list 🙂
