Jeez I have neglected this. I guess the upheaval of moving house and leaving London will do that. I was (and remain to be) sad to have had to abruptly say goodbye to that chapter of my life but shit happens... frequently and in great quantities.
Unfortunately I am not what you could call an optimist, or even positive, so the last month has been a difficult adjustment. However, you gotta make the best of these situations and that's what I'm trying to do.
It took me a little while to get round to buying a good frothing jug so for a while I just tested my espresso making skills. I drink a lot of black coffee now, partly to try not to over-do my soy intake and partly because I really like the simplicity of it. Further adventures with the Gaggia will be documented.
