We are experiencing quite warm temperatures for February here in the UK at the moment and now I have probably jinxed it. I clocked the temperature at a very mild 17 degrees C today and that is the kind of temperatures we would expect in spring going into summer.
So I thought while everyone is eating ice cream and wearing their t shirts I thought I would pop into Costa and have a cold brew. Oh I couldn't think what to have so it's a good job there wasn't a queue. The lovely Henry at the Derby Odeon Costa knows me by now and was very patient while I perused the menu.
I plummeted for a Frostini in a salted caramel crunch style and OMG my taste buds went wild my fellow brewsters. An iced coffee with salted caramel and cream on top. Blooming lovely, so lovely that when I had sat down and had a taste I shouted to Henry that it was gorgeous.....hoping that the other customers would click on you see and go and order one too. I'm just there for marketing half the time, you all think I'm addicted to Costa.
Not great on the old calories but hey who was counting today, I was having a taste of summer and enjoying the treat with my son. I was actually contemplating taking my car for a wash at the local Morrisons store, they have a hand car washy thing going on down there. I've become that busy I haven't had time to wash it myself so off we went. Bargain! I never realised how excited I could be after someone else had washed my car. it looks amazing and I haven't had to do it. Worth every penny of my £7 I paid, thank you washy car peeps.
So Teapot Tuesday kind of turned into 'have something different at costa' Tuesday and I did. It's a brew.....it counts, I will get back to the tea next week, I just needed a break.
Thanks for reading today, please join me tomorrow for What to Buy Wednesday which could be called something else by the time tomorrow comes around as that's the way I'm rolling (not really, I will behave).
Take care now.
