About Me

So I did this slightly back to front. Last year I was made redundant from my Job as a Community Projects Co-ordinator at a local charity; and in a moment of great wisdom I decided that I was going to earn a living from blogging. So I started up The Relationship Blogger. It’s been about six months now and I’m beginning to realise that I’m enjoying writing so much that I want to write about so much more, yet my other blog won’t allow it because it has a Niche.

And then this blog was born. A place to write about anything I want to without having to justify to myself that it covers a certain genre. I hope you enjoy my work. Please sit down, relax and chill.

      Well noticed! I’m such a coffee addict now that the alcohol is out the window. My absolute favourite blend it Nescafe – Alta Rica but that is instant blend. And I know Americans frown upon instant (I assume you’re American?) so my favourite ground coffee would be Taylors from harrogate rich Italian.

      It always surprises me visiting other countries how their coffee methods are far more superior to ours. Perhaps that because our drinking alcohol methods are far superior to others.

      Haha! You’ve started something now. See? I told you 🙂

        Hahaha… oh well… Nope, I’m actually Swiss but live in Australia for a looooooong time already. We have a huge coffee culture down here. So I kind of frown upon instant coffee too although I do like some of them and they are so nice and easy. I like my Nespresso capsule system (not buying Nespresso capsules all the time, there are good other ones too nowadays…). Love my coffee…
