Just after my delicious pies arrived and two had been munched we set off for Preston.

Eldest daughter has decided being a qualified photographer and an RN isn't enough and she wants to go further so she is going to go back to Uni for another qualification and as she can do it at Uclan she may as well go and be with her sister.

Get on the M6 at j14 at 1215, at 1530 we pull off at Keele services, it had taken us 3 hours to get from j15 to the services, i decided to use the service road from the services, into Keele, down to Newcastle and then down to Stoke station where i got the daughter a ticket and put her on the train to Preston.

45 minutes later i'm back home and having a much needed half pint of coffee followed by a pie and another half pint of coffee, my biggest problems now are

1) i've got to be up for 0530 for work and i've only got that weak gnats pee Nescafe gold blend because i've drank all my Cornish stupidly strong 😭😭

2) i forgot to pick up my heart medication and i've ran out..🙄.....but worse, i've ran out of my stupidly strong coffee 😭😭

Knock on next door and ask for coffee like the woman on the adverts in the the 80's did, it could lead to anything :p failing that shake your wrist for the magic beans that worked too :p

I used to love gold blend, but then they changed the recipe not long before the packaging rebranding, and now it tastes like sh!te, and leaves a grainy residue in your mug. I’ve yet to find a decent alternative.

This is the best instant coffee I've found, and available in most supermarkets...

Am I only 1 who just doesn’t get all the coffee thing.
I sometimes have 1 cup a day. And that be around 11ish.
Some mate can’t leave house in morning without 2 cups.
Why. What does it do to you?
If I have 2 cups before I go out it just make me pee.

Tea for me... an odd cup of coffee every now and then... that said I have no sugar in tea but have to have it in coffee hence I don't drink coffee too often... I don't hold any passion for coffee whatsoever
