My Coffee Catch 22
There’s a viral Karvan Coffee video doing the rounds, thanks in part to a share from myself on Facebook (all explained here) that meant I didn’t know if I was coming or going for most of the Easter long weekend. There were notifications and messages left, right and centre.
It didn’t help that hubby left for a stint of working out at sea, in the middle of the Indian Ocean, first thing Easter Sunday and I’m currently playing the part-time solo parent with our three teen girls.
With so much more on my plate than normal, I’ve been jokingly using #pleasesendwine on a lot of my Instagram and Facebook shares lately but what I really think I need is coffee, delivered hot and bothered at about 6am. A magic wand wouldn’t go astray either.
As hubby is the chief coffee maker in our house, I’m having difficulty getting started in the morning. You see, I need a decent coffee first thing, to be able to function. The main problem, as illustrated so beautifully in the image below, is I clearly need to be able to function before I can even attempt to make a half decent cup of coffee.
YES, that’s coffee beans in my plunger. I completely missed the step where I needed to grind them first.
As much as I love tea and it’s probably a whole lot easier to brew when you aren’t functioning at 100%, it just doesn’t cut the mustard or give me that much needed kick start in the morning like coffee.
So for now… it’s goodbye my lover and hello caffeine deprived headache as I haven’t found a nearby cafe, since we moved house, that opens early enough and serves my favourite Karvan Coffee. Of course, I may be on a mission to change that.
WORTH CASING WEDNESDAY
If you have a blog post (or two) worth casing this week, this is the place to link up. There are no real rules around here but the more effort you put in, the more you will get out of our link party. Try not to link and run, leave a comment to let me know what you’ve been up to this week and take some time to visit the other bloggers linking up.
What have you been up to this week? What’s one food or drink you couldn’t live without?
Tea drinker here – but I understand the idea of loving coffee 🙂
I was just over at your blog. I probably love my coffee a little too much.
I would love one thank you slurrrp! LOL
Have a caffeinetastic week
You too Steve.
I am a coffee lover first but do enjoy green tea. I would be hunting down the first cafe asap. I know instant wont cut it either….just not the same. I dont know how you do it with hubby out at sea with teen daughters.
Wishing you a great week!
You are so right. I don’t even have instant coffee in the house. I will probably have to get my act together and learn how to use one of our coffee machines but still, I just want my coffee made for me first thing. LOL
You are spoiled I think. How about a coffee maker with a timer?
Yes definitely spoilt.
I love coffee!
Did you see the Eggspresso video doing the rounds? OMG so good. Coffee and chocolate… a match made in heaven.
Aww.. hope that you get your coffee fix soon. I’m not really a coffee person as I only drink tea.
Me too Dominique.
Oh you poor lady! I hope you find a rhythm with your hubby away and lots of coffee!
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger… right?! So sorry to hear about your break in. It just seems like one thing after the other right now.
I hope you find your coffee. I don’t drink coffee, so I think I am a lot odd.
Not odd at all.
I kick-start my day with a glass of water! I rarely drink coffee (or tea). More of a Sultana Bran girl. Such a nerd!
I do too. Have a massive glass of water on waking, with my thyroid meds and then have to wait over an hour before I can eat or drink a coffee. I haven’t had Sultana Bran in years.
Hope you find a new love nearby!
Me too Stephanie.
Had a rough night.. so need a good cup of coffee now too!! 😛
Me too Ai. Hope your day gets better.
So, no coffee? mmmmm I think that’s not a good thing for you. If you cant bear to try to make your own with the machine there is an instant that is close to (for me anyway) a decent coffee via Nescafe called Short Black. I think it might be missing the person who makes the coffee more than the coffee …maybe? Take care. You got this (only so many times that you can keep on keeping on I know!) Denyse xx
Yes, I am missing the person that makes the coffee more. I’m also heading out for coffee but it is rather late in the day, which keeps me up at night. So I think for a little while, I will just drink tea. I’m also a bit of a diva when it comes to coffee and can no longer do instant.
Mmmmmmm. . . .. . coffee!
Need one right now.
Wow, I’d love to have a post go viral! But I’m guessing it wasn’t your post? Did you still benefit? I’ll read the post you linked explaining it lol.
Di from Max The Unicorn
I certainly benefited but I feel bad because it wasn’t my video in the first place. So I’m hoping in the end the brand saw some benefit.
I’m torn – I kind of would love a post to go viral but am also terrified of being KNOWN!
I’m much the same, I’m kind of relieved it was a coffee video by my favourite roasters that went viral on my share and not one of my own videos.
Wow a viral video by you! Thats so awesome and so good for your blog!
I hope that your coffee maker will go home soon so that you can enjoy a cup first thing in the morning again =)
Not my video. Just one I shared of my favourite coffee roasters. They don’t have a huge online following, so it is wonderful for them that it took off they way it did.
I hope you get your coffee fix!
Thanks for hosting this great linky Raych (sorry I’m late)
It’s been five days. My problem being. The car died, my girls are old enough to get themselves to school, and I work from home. By the time, I actually venture out, a coffee would have me up all night and I’m barely sleeping as it is. Hoping the car is re-fixed tomorrow under warranty. Until then I’m walking or Ubering it around. And yes… I know I’m a bit of a diva. I should just learn to make my own coffee.
