Light reflected and transmitted

And another view of the new coffee shop. There are some big comfy armchairs and sofas in there, as well as tables and hard chairs. Can you tell that the arrival of a new coffee shop counts as "an event" in my limited world?

And why not. It is certainly the small things which make up my world - much more so than the bigger things over which I have only limited power.

The most important decisions of my life were often taken in Coffee Shops.

Interesting comments. The small things combine to be the big thing, often, and yes, mostly it is only the small stuff of each day that we can control, and I find just a little change in a small thing in my mind (such as the metaphorical angle from which I view something) can transform the day. But I think soaking in the bath is where most of my good big decisions, or ideas, occur. These days coffee shops and pubs are where most of the work gets done (apart from the chemistry teaching work). Gosh I do "blab on" a bit though, and have not even risen from my bed yet. To the bath!

Baths and coffee houses.If only the two concepts were properly married. Enjoy your best arabica in a relaxing scented bath!

There's your business idea for you Shaun. I look forward to a "Shaun's Coffee Bathhouse" outlet arriving in Perth soon. Might be a problem keeping the Muffins dry though.

I am looking forward to seeing the coffee shop from the inside.

Sitting in a Cafe Costa in Edinburgh right now, about to head off to meet my Lady, daughter, son, brother and his (scary) Lady Lord at The Gourmet Burger Kitchen, and reflecting on how my life nowadays seems largely to be a journey from coffee shop to restaurant to pub, to coffee shop to pub to restaurant..., and from one free wifi service to another while intermittently clacking out crap on my keyboard. It's not a bad way of life, but is it sustainable? Anyway, new coffee shop in Perth will be done tomorrow, prior to watching football in the pub... Sigh.

Some will see it in terms of coffee - but not the artist.

I discovered the silly place is not open on Sundays, and I realise it is a hybrid between a fancy furnishings type shop to one side of the doorway and the very civilised looking cafe to the other side. My research into its offerings is postponed
