Good morning peeps :o)

Raspberry tea "with a hint of rose" sounds nice but tastes like dilute bubble bath :oS~

Emergency supplies of e-caffiene on their way, little dinosaur.

That's a title that sends shivers up everyones spine - glad I'm not one of your patients today ;o)

The anticipatory smell of fruit teas always belies their thin taste - total con!

Doing a detox V'rap?

'Detox' & 'V-rap' do NOT go together!!!
12/01/2007 at 09:57
yes I'd agree with that Siance - smell great but taste weak - I used to leave the teabag in and they still never got beyond the "dilute" stage :o(

Detox? Perish the thought. I like being toxic.

Just reducing my caffeine intake a little bit, for no better reason than that I feel like it. Not given up completely, though. Velociraptors are absolutely not quitters ;o)

3 weeks without a run - there's not a chance in hell I'd give up caffeine right now. Or chocolate.

Oh, dear, Siance :o( Is your ankle improving?

The chocolate issue may have to be dealt with at some stage in the near future. I'm back over 100g a day, which is too much.

I tried a fruit tea once.

Now if I fancy a hot drink that's not got caffiene in it, I have hot ribena. That's how fruit tea should taste - and as Siance says, smells like it should taste and then doesn't.

I think I need to cut down my caffiene too. I used to get by quite happily on 3 or 4 cups a day, then a new person started in the office who just goes and makes coffee for everyone on an hourly basis.

Nessie your eyes must look just like your pic!!!


Can our office borrow your coffee maker - i usually get the short straw (which means everyone only gets one cup a day!!!).

fruit tea... Yuk!
Camomile & honey is OK though. Just tastes a bit herbal.
12/01/2007 at 10:26
That'd be a good idea.

Another steaming mug has just appeared at my right elbow.
12/01/2007 at 10:33
once an hour?

...is that all? :-O
12/01/2007 at 10:35
Ditto the hot ribena. If I'm feeling virtuous I'll have hot water - no messing with your senses, it doesn't taste or smell so you're not disappointed.

V'rap, ankle's much better thanks. Still bit swollen but at least I can wear my normal trainers - previously been wearing summer mules, looked like a deranged tourist. Hospital adivsed 6 weeks sans running, so naturally I've reduced that to 4 - going to try a very short jog next week.

You'll be having a caffiene IV in the other arm any minute now Bear!!

sounds like a good plan to me :oD

morning all

just torturing myself by watching being wellied by the Aussies again :o(

It would have been much harder to give up coffee at work in my old place, where we had an endless supply of fresh ground coffee. But here it's instant and I have to go to the back of reception and make it myself, trying to dodge the query-book and the biscuits.

I like vanilla rooiboos tea, but put a little bit of milk in it to make sure any supposed medicinal properties are destroyed.

I have a cup of coffee :o)

And a parcel, which is very exciting even though I know it's only maps and guidebooks.

I think I now understand respiration :oD
