I’m finally in the safety and warmth of my home and Monday is nearly over.
Well is over work wise, which is the what I currently struggle with.
I still have the afternoon to do my yoga (I cannot believe my 31 day yoga revolution comes to an end tomorrow!) look for jobs, learn a new song on my guitar, learn a little bit more Italian, do some reading, watch Game of Thrones, do some drawing… I love my evenings.
I’ve been dreading Monday, so I had to do something different, even if it was something small otherwise the Groundhog Day effect would have kicked in.
So after a long morning made bearable by continue listening to the Sweet Soul Sunday playlist on Spotify (check it out, you won’t regret it) from yesterday, my bestie and I decided to try Coffee Lab on London Road, since it’s one of the very few places in town we haven’t been before.
I pass by it every morning on my way to work since it first opened, 8 months ago but I never have enough time to stop.
When it first opened it didn’t look very attractive, but now it looks cosy and welcoming.
We already had lunch so we tried their tea (although their cakes AND sandwiches looked amazing!). And it didn’t disappoint.
Friendly staff, great atmosphere, super close to work, yummy tea and also very importantly, it smelled nice. I hate it when I leave a restaurant or a cafe and I smell of food.
We sat on the bar across the window, people watching and chatting, daydreaming as usual.
I had Amaretto Tea and it came into a pretty glass teapot. It was sweet, almond-y, warm, delicious!
Just what I needed!
I’m definitely going again for lunch and cake.
Any recommendations for lunch breaks in the city centre are welcome 🙂
Is the little things that count and today I’m grateful I spent my lunch break at a lovely coffee place with my best friend.
