Guest Post...Looking For Blue Sky - Further Confessions Of A Coffee Junkie

I think I've been following C's blog 'Looking For Blue Sky' since I began blogging myself. She's such a great writer and inspiration and someone who I, despite having never met (I'm longing to), would class as a friend.


Being a single Mum to 3 fabulous children who have such differing needs isn't easy sometimes...a teenager, a smiley girl with cerebral palsy and a boy with Aspergers.  Her love and determination for her family and her beliefs shine through in every post and I love her for it.


Here she shares something a little different, I give you her Guest Post - Further Confessions Of A Coffee Junkie...


All those New Year's Resolutions so quickly discarded.  Plans for healthy living and healthy diets give way to the comfort of coffee and cakes.  Because, let's face it, most of us find that we cannot stick to resolutions that seem to involve giving up everything that we like. But I did successfully give up smoking in 2004 after waking up one morning with a horrible cough and sometimes I wonder about what else  I could give up and what I absolutely couldn't.  And the answer is always the same:  I could give up anything before I give up coffee.

My love affair with the little brown bean began when I was a child.  I can remember looking longingly at the percolator bubbling away in the quiet room where we all ate breakfast - and read at the same time.  Finally,  one day when I was 11 or 12, a cup of milky coffee was passed down to my end of the table.

It was love at first sip.

When I was young I drank coffee with sugar, but I was able to give that up in my mid teens.  Once I hit the exam years, it was coffee that got me through.  And my four mugs of coffee a day still mark the hours as they pass by.  I'm not that fussy either: almost any coffee is better than no coffee.  Well apart from Camp Coffee, but perhaps I'm the only person who remembers that.

So why can't I give it up?

Well coffee...

...wakes me in the morning

...warms me when I'm cold

...breaks up the day

...gets rid of stress headaches

...calms me down

...helps me prepare the dinner

...is shared with friends

...is an excuse to meet up and eat cake

...helps me to concentrate

...is a reward for doing something unpleasant

...helps me to cope with difficult phone calls

And another 100 things too.  What on earth would I do without it?

So is it just me? Is coffee important to you? Or is it tea?

I'm a 'coffaholic' too. Don't see any good reason to give it up. I'm glad you don't either!

Blue Sky said...

I always feel under pressure to cut down or give up at this time of year though!

Matthew Smith said...

I usually have at least one coffee every day (a medium-sized latte). I drink it while I'm reading the paper, usually in the Costa. It's expensive but tastes good and is filling. Don't really think it "wakes me up" because I never have it first thing. But it's part of my daily routine.

Lizbethcole29 said...

Coffee is just about the only thing that gets me up and going in the morning, lifts the fog.  I have two quick cups in the AM and that's it.  Anything else and I get all twitchy.  

All for Aleyna said...

Don't give it up C.  You have enough going on, a bit of coffee won't hurt. 
Better than me... stick the word "wine" in front of all* of your reasons and that just about sums me up *(Maybe not No 1 quite yet) xx

MidlifeSinglemum said...

Apparently coffee drinkers are less likely to get Parkinsons - just read it in the Daily Mail. There are other more important things to give up like sugar, if you really feel the need to give something up. My advice it to enjoy it.

Blue Sky said...

That sounds like a great way to enjoy your coffee Matthew :) And I know what you mean about Costa Coffee being filling!

Blue sky said...

I usually have 3-4 mugs of coffee in the day, depending on how it's going. Two sounds very virtuous :)

Blue sky said...

He, he! I've never heard of wine waking anyone up...

Blue sky said...

Yes I think there are other health benefits being discovered too :)

Michelle Twin Mum said...

Ohh I love a good coffee but sadly I like things liek Latte and Cappuchino with 2 sugars, so I'll stick to the tea for now.
 
Lovely post.  Mich x

PhotoPuddle said...

I wish I liked coffee but unfortunately I think it is the work of the devil. LOL! Seriously, I can't stand the stuff. It's not even something I could politely drink if offered it. I don't like tea either. My mother always told me that I'd drink tea and coffee when I grew up. As I'm 34 now and still don't drink them I guess that means I'm not yet a grown up which I reckon is pretty cool!! 

Donna@MummyCentral said...

For some unknown reason, ever since I first got pregnant, drinking tea just turns my stomach. I've become a total coffee junkie. Need at least 4/5 a day.
I suppose once you turn your back on a social life of sipping wine in trendy bars on Friday nights, you swap that for meeting other mums for a cappuccino, or sipping a latte at the soft play, enjoying the freedom of the kids running themselves ragged while you read a magazine.
People say the caffeine isn't good for you, and keeps you awake. But I find a coffee before I go to bed very soothing and I sleep no bother.
So I completely get where you're coming from x

Blue sky said...

Yep I love the cappuccinos as you *may* be able to tell from the photograph x

So it looks like you'll never have to grow up, that could be good!

Looking for Blue Sky said...

 Thank you for all your comments and thanks so much Heather for this opportunity xx

bod for tea said...

Mmm...*savours aroma of freshly brewed filter coffee* hardcore to the floor in this house too. Gotta have ONE vice!! Nicely put Mrs, especially the excuse to eat cake :D
