The lack of froth on the top, it doesn't taste quite as good, it always happens in the bloody morning when you need a coffee.
The red light of doom.
The thing that you really, really, really don't want to happen when you've been up in the night with a newborn. Yup, you guessed it the coffee machine needs descaling. This, without a doubt always happens on a morning when I'm tired, a little cranky and need my goddam caffeine fix. Arghhhhhh!!
This morning I consider myself lucky, I was actually able to get a coffee out of the machine, tomorrow I doubt I'd be so and I will have to do the laborious (and dull) task of de-scaling my beloved Tassimo today *boring!!!*. Cue lots of grumbling and moaning on my part about 1. having to de-scale the blooming thing and 2. having to have a cup of instant coffee.
I know I sound quite dramatic but it is one of those 'head in hand' moments, I simply do not know how on earth I'm supposed to cope/deal with the day/manage the children etc etc without my Caramel Latte Machiatto (#firstworldproblems I know)!! Ok, so that is a little tongue in cheek and a cup of instant would get me through until the machine has been de-scaled but it just doesn't hit the spot like my Macchiato does!
Actually, reflecting over the last week I have two 'worst' moments that have happened, the coffee machine being one and the second being my little boy having a massive tantrum and throwing his juice cup on the table which then hit my full cup of coke which then spilt straight over my laptop (this tantrum was caused by Mummy not giving him the correct juice cup, I can't win!). This was potentially the worst moment and I'm still a little traumatised to discuss *sad face*. It's ok though my marvellous husband managed to save it and check it all out and thankfully my laptop is ok, it survived the wrath of my toddler so it wasn't actually the worst moment of my week but oh it so easily could have been!
So there you have my worst moment of the week. I'm now off to de-scale the coffee machine so I can
enjoy, pah who am I kidding, more like try to drink the coffee before it gets cold with a crazy toddler and a newborn, chances are it will be stone cold by the time I actually get to it. Ahhh, oh well, caffeine is caffeine, right?
What's your best or worst moment this week?
