2 or 3 times a week we visit Waitrose cafe for a coffee and a read of the free papers.
It seems like a simple thing to do but to us it's a break in the day and we enjoy it.
But on totting the cost up the other day I realised just how much this little pleasure was costing us.
And so, we bought ourselves some biodegradable bamboo mugs to take advantage of their free coffee machine.
Today we enjoyed a relaxed read of the papers and a free coffee, lovely.
On another subject altogether.
I've been pondering on the meaning of the phrase 'Just the ticket' I know what it means but how did it come about?
Also, when we kids were at home I remember my Mum often saying she'd give us a clump if we didn't behave (don't worry, it was a saying and nobody ever got 'CLUMPED' lol
But where on earth did that word come from?
I could come up with so many of these phrases, my Mum was full of them but they do not seem so prevalent these days.
