Oh noes!

Tragedy has struck. Our beloved, shiny coffee machine is in for repairs. (Cue 2 minute's silence, perLEEZE!). We got back from our weekend away and Bike Boy made me a coffee. He then put a cup under the spout for himself, pressed the button and .....everything went black! Power blackout. Hmm. I reset the safety switch thingie and he tried again .....and we were plunged into darkness again. Uh-oh. THAT'S not a good thing. Turn off the dishwasher and give it one more try? Nope....it's definitely the coffee machine.

It's still under warranty, so I've dropped it off for repairs today. I almost choked when the guy said that the turn-around time is about 17 days. WHAAAT?? 17 days without real coffee?

Seriously, I had to stop for a minute and really think about how to make a cup of instant. It's a lot of trouble. And it was disgusting.

Things have been a little grumpy in our house.

My coffee maker is broken too - well actually he just moved to another job. Instant coffee is the worst!

At least I got my cup before circuit-breakers started going all twitchy.

:o)

Kek there is an obvious simple solution to this. Find your local (good) cafe and go out for coffee. I do all the time and I feel extra good knowing I'm supporting local small business. WIN WIN!!

Mmm, a bit tricky when I drink several coffees a day - and work from home. There wouldn't be a lot of work getting done!

I feel your pain - I think I would die if something happened to our coffee maker
