An open letter to the Coffee Cow {Worth Casing Wednesday Link Up}

An open letter to the cow that stole coffee catch ups out from under me….

oh hang on a minute…. that was me.


This week I’m really starting to miss my coffee in a big way and thinking the improved sleep side of things is overrated. One cup couldn’t hurt, could it?

How do you like your coffee or tea? I’ll take mine anyway I can get it, at this point in time.


giving up coffee


It’s been seven hours and twenty four days
Since you took your love away
I go out every day and sleep all night
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can sleep whenever I want
I can sleep where ever I choose
I can review brunch in a fancy restaurant
But nothing

I said nothing can take away these blues

Cause nothing compares to you………

  1. Happy Tuesday and thank you for hosting this linky! Have a great week ahead! This is a cute poem for coffee!! Please share this and link up with me on Wednesday!! xx Ashleigh @SimplyWright

    • Thanks Ashleigh. I’m not entirely sure why my Worth Casing Wednesday post hit the blog on Tuesday. Clearly I’m either a day ahead of myself or really bad at blog scheduling.

  2. I hope it gets easier for you! Unfortunately for me coffee gives me a headache so I have never enjoyed drinking it which makes me feel very anti-social at times!

  3. I am not much of a coffee drinker, so I really don’t have that problem. Yet I love to have a good cappuccino ones in a while. My husband on the other hand drinks coffee every day.

    Have a lovely week!

  4. Thanks for hosting 🙂 I never tried coffee until I turn 40. I don’t like plain coffee but love cappuccino’s ..I like 2 cups a day ..

  5. I don’t drink coffee so will not be missing it. Hope that the separation from coffee is not too painful for you

  6. I went 6 days without coffee when I was sick, and it was torture! Even though I didn’t physically feel like coffee due to nausea, I still craved the time when I could go back to my daily 2 cups!

    • I’m definitely an all or nothing kind of gal. I just know if I start again it will be next to no time and I’m drinking 4 cups a day and hardly sleeping. Speaking of which at 1.30 am I should probably head to bed.

    • With all my food issues, it felt like my last indulgence. It was helping with the sleep but now that hubby is away at sea for the month, I find myself wide awake and playing blog catch up at 1.30am. Heading to bed now.

  7. I once had a vivid dream where God told me that I was not supposed to drink coffee, but I was someone else in the dream. I wondered if that was for me or for that someone else, so I decided to pass the message on to that someone else and I continue to drink coffee. 😀 Maybe you won’t miss it so much after a while. If you tell yourself that coffee is your enemy, you’ll probably want it less. I wish you all the best! Take care and have a lovely week.

    • Normally I would say yes but milk is another thing that I’ve had to give up. So far I haven’t found an alternative that heats well that I can tolerate. I’m a problem child who is over herbal tea at the moment.

  8. jeez…I love my cup of tea every morning and I can so relate to this poem on your cuppa of java 🙂

    happy to link up!

  9. no coffee for me thanks raych!
    I get palpitations when I drink it! … gave it up years ago! … no hardship!
    alternatives … so one is not missing out on small pleasures!
    nature’s cuppa, caro, dandelion coffee, at least it’s warming the cockles!
    I have a decaf when I’m out or a chai latte but even they can trigger it!
    a delicate balance for some! … I had recurring grave’s disease for many years, so I am very disciplined and it’s worth it!
    ways to treat oneself and everyone is different! love m:)X
    I’m back from holidays after not sooo much discipline;0

    • I haven’t heard of dandelion coffee. I have to be careful with the Chai Lattes as I believe they contain sugar and gluten? I think I might need to be on a mission to find a nice decaf.

      Hope you had a great holiday. Where did you head?

  10. I hope the lack of coffee gets easier. I generally only have 1 or 2 a day and never after mid afternoon. Have a great week. And thanks for the link up!

    • I enjoyed mine too but you know what I’ve also had to give up milk and I haven’t found a suitable alternative that heats well and agrees with me and I’m really not one for black coffee. I just need to find an alternative. I’m a bit over herbal tea.

      • If it’s because of the lactose, I reckon lactose free milk is the best substitute. Almond and Soy just don’t quite work I find.

  11. Oh god why have you stopped drinking coffee??! I like mine skinny cap with no sugar but extra chocolate dusting, oooh yeeeah

  12. I don’t drink coffee but I’ve tried to give up vanilla diet coke a number of times and feel better when I eventually detox but continue to go back to it!!!!

  13. I love both coffee and tea and couldn’t give them up. A large cup of coffee in the morning with milk, and a cup of Earl Grey in the afternoons (yes, I’ve been reading a lot of British novels). I’m trying to cut down on the caffeine, though, but it’s hard.

  14. I actually wake up early because my body is telling me I need caffeine. I only drink three cups a day but without them I’m a zombie. How did I not know about this link up? I’ll be here next week 😉

    • 3 cups and I would be up all night. How did you not know about this link up? My bad, I suppose because I like to keep it pretty relaxed and rule free, so you don’t need to share, promote or include a blog button on your blog posts. Actually, you’ve just reminded me I need to a new blog button for my sidebar.

    • I loved that song too. I hear Sinead is no longer including it in her gig lineup because it doesn’t hold any meaning to her now. All this talk of coffee really has me craving one. My sleep over night was just on 3 hours, so I think the novelty has worn off. Either that or I need to find a stunt double for hubby while he is away. I don’t sleep well on my own either.

  15. Well done for getting past the coffee ‘headaches’ and withdrawals. Maybe one day you will let yourself indulge in the odd one xx I only drink black teas, and most of them herbal. My problem at the moment is not stuffing myself easter chocolate.

  16. I am guessing you have given up coffee entirely. I have reduced coffee intake dramatically and now I have replaced with herbal tea and tisane. LOL. it’s a rough road. I am a massive coffee fan. But I have high blood pressure and so I was told to reduce caffeine and I have dramatically. I get this post totally. Now I have only two cups every morning and that is it. Previously I had about 7 cups a day. Or at least five cups a day.

    • Yes, I recently completed a 5 day juice cleanse and in the lead up I needed to give coffee up. It was only after seeing how much my sleep improved that I’ve decided to continue coffee free. I was much like you and having up to 5 cups a day (if not more). I can’t seem to stop at just 1 or 2.

  17. I actually don’t drink coffee – so I never truly understand what all the fuss is about.
    Good luck though!

  18. Oh you are a brave soul!
    I love my coffee. It’s the first thing I do after taking the kids to school & walking in the door back at home.
    I’m an enabler from way back, so feel free to stop reading here…

    Surely one coffee couldn’t hurt, right in the middle of the morning while flicking though a good mag or catching up on a blog or two…
