Coffee Love

My addiction to coffee is well-known amongst my family - I usually only have 1 or 2 cups a day, but it is one of my favourite treats and if I go for a day without a coffee (preferably cappucino) I not only feel deprived but get a headache - yes, a true chemical addiction!
I made this layout in response to this week's challenge onUK Scrappers which include making a LO about something you're addicted to - for me, apart from scrapbooking itself, there could be only one contender!
I can knowledgeably discuss the merits of the Cappucino on offer at all the major coffee chains - Costa, Cafe Nero, Starbucks, as well as my favourite small individual coffee shops in Norwich and Wymondham. Funnily enough, it is only actual coffee I love - I can't stand anything coffee-flavoured, and as for instant coffee ... yeuch! Definitely a coffee snob, me!

I have already made other layouts celebrating my love of coffee, most recently for a Circle Journal group I'm doing through UKS - I really enjoyed using yummy Doodlebug flock and boutique trims in wonderful coffee colours in this double LO below:

Let there be light!

It's very exciting at home at the moment, because we are having extra windows put in to the living room and the hall. As you can see, the living room windows were put in today - for the first time we can see out into the back garden. This side of the barn faces East, so I'm looking forward to seeing the room flooded with early-morning light when I get up tomorrow.
French windows from the hall should be finished by Monday - watch this space!
