Watching Football at Cafe

Hello Football Fans, I am a football fanatic and I love watching  football. I am always ready  to get up at 4  in the morning and watch a game. The time difference with Europe is 8 hours which means watching  games early in the morning Sydney time. My favourite football  team is Juventus; a club…

Non-Coffee Lover Likes A Latte

You always remember that first taste of coffee…mmm delicious right? Well, not for me. Coffee and cafes are a mystery to me. People love it. It’s part of their lives. It’s an essential part of their day. Me on the other hand? I just don’t get it. On any other day, I’d easily walk past a…

When your Vegetarian Aunt Plucks Poultry from the Menu

Retro coffee for a writer

It is going to sound strange, but I get some of my best work done in crowded, noisy cafes. I find the distractions minimal and the inspiration flows, plus coffee and food is brought to you with no washing up to follow. At home, I sit down to write and all my procrastinating brain can…
