Today me and a friend went to Costa for a drink and a catch up. Now I am often mocked for the fact that I don't drink caffeine* so whenever I am catching with a friend Costa is my coffee shop of choice due to their amazing iced drinks. I have been known to order these on snow days (much to the amusement of the boy behind the counter). Today I went for the vanilla cooler which is basically an iced version or a milkshake. Delicious though I did get the dreaded brain freeze a few times. Inside the shop they have the kind of leather sofas that almost swallow you up. We sat all snuggled into the sofa drinking our drinks and having a good natter until we realized that everyone else had left and that the staff were probably hoping to close up soon. I often find that a comfy sofa helps me to relax, that combined with a friendly face helped me let go of some of the stress I have been feeling and make a few big decisions that needed deciding.
*This isn't a health thing. I just don't like tea or coffee and therefore caffeine in energy drinks or fizzy drinks effects me in a big way. It is for the sanity of everyone around me that I try to steer clear.
