Yea, though I walk through the valley
Now that our lovely guests from England have left, blogging shall resume as usual. I have some exciting things planned for the coming weeks too, so stay tuned.
One bit of unfortunate news, however. With money gladly received for my birthday I purposed to purchase a second hand Nuova Simonelli espresso machine (Oscar) – they make utterly glorious espresso. However, just before it was purchased it become clear that the blasted thing had a leak. Given that this was one of the best deals I have ever gotten within a mile of, I’m a bit gutted.
OK, hardly the end of the world, but in my small over-caffeine dosed postgrad world, this was the mother of all disappointments.
‘For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with the lack of a Nuova Simonelli Oscar espresso machine, with reduced caffeine levels in the blood, with early morning bloodshot eyed writing without the double-shot espresso kick up the backside, and calamities. For when I am without enough caffeine and shake all over the place, then I am strong’ 2 Cor 12:10 (Suspicious Version)
