Possibly the nicest coffee i have ever had …..

So I like a sneaky latte, there’s no issue with that , I and I will continue to hunt down the best  one on my travels. I MAY have stumbled across the perfect recipe  though so I thought I would share…..

A Big old Mug ( with a nice big circumference  that takes to hands to hold ) for that warm  fuzzy feeling…. A big old slug of  ” THE MAGICAL INGREDIENT  FOR ANY COFFEE “ In this case lemon Meringue   syrup. And yes, im sorry i didn’t measure exactly ,

A good old fashioned Tassimo  coffee pod, run twice through the machine  just to getCARTE NOIRE Expresso  the extra strength  for the Mix , With a large Latte  portion , again run twice  through  the machine

I don’t know  if it was just the ingredients, or the Delicate way  I stirred it (  who am I kidding )  but  it was lovely, and  for a large coffee with syrup, I worked out it only cost about 60p

Tassimo & Monin are 2 names that definitely go well together and I will be telling them so


A heads up is never a bad thing

Exact dates would be nice  i guess ……..

I suppose if you see this and it makes enough people slow down and it saves one accident it is worth it, But i cant get around the fact that  it is some kind of revenue generator….

Safe motoring Boys and girls, Dont drink and drive,

And help give everyone else a Happy & safe  Christmas

What a waffle…..


and the Coconut Cappuccino  that came with it went down really well. 

Thanks to the girls and boys at  http://thelondonroadcoffeeshop.co.uk/  Best Waffle i have had in a long time,  Service was excellent , even  though the place was very busy.  If you  are ever down in sunny bognor regis for a day  or a holiday . definitely worth a visit

There are other places in the town that can serve  coffee, and waffles, but as someone that has tried most of them. This place gets it ” hands down ” as one of the best , and Not badly priced 

Just for the record , I  was not paid for  this blog, its just when a place is this good, its best to tell people


No Sneaky Shop Bought latte’s today …

Today has been one of those weird sorts of days, Not the usual  Saturday in the ” oldmanleslie ” household.. very briefly

Went to see the  real ” oldmanleslie ”  this morning to sort out a few things, A brief trip into  sunny Bognor Regis, bumped into  one  of the guys i work with and his lovely wifeSpot of lunch which was fine

Then a trip up to the out-of-town retail park , for mrs Oldmanleslie to get a present for some one

Home for a spot of tea, then  sent Number 01 son off to  his skating,  whilst i was at home relaxing..

Best part of the day  was coffee this morning, Not a sneaky latte, but a ” proper coffee ” made from  the finest beans from Dads supplier, all i can go on is that the coffee tasted good  to me

Who would have thought of offering to help a customer

Anybody who knows me knows I like a sneaky latte coffee. Especially at the weekends.

Sainsburys in bognor regis just got it wrong.

Dirty tea cup that I had to clean for Mrs “oldmanleslie”. Guy serving that told me I had to wait for my latte as he couldn’t bring it over to us….even though I counted 6 people on duty….and not even a latte glass..

You get what you pay for I guess…£7.10 of NOT very nice

This is only my opinion

The Start of what could be a very noisy weekend ……Bring it on

So here it is , only 16.21 on a wet Saturday afternoon  in England , and  what a day  its been so far. The band i play in ….celebration samba

Celebration Samba

 have performed 3 times today as part of the Arundel  Festival

, i guess we must be popular because we keep getting asked back .

I have discovered 2  new places  to go to indulge my favorite vice ( sneaky Latte’s )   and  i have  a gig to look forward to  tomorrow in Bognor Regis, and then also  on Monday in Worthing …. There is going to be a lot of drumming me thinks, then back to work on Tuesday .

If you are based on the south coast and want to come and see us perform . drop me  a line or have a look at the www…..

Thats enough for me for now , off to practice

Arundel folks are not put off by a bit of rain

Just to add that we did perform a total of 6  times over the 3 days, we won prizes for  some of the gigs, its nice to know that the judges like us , but most importantly  we play because we enjoy it . we would love to have you come and join us . so if you are based on the south coast of the UK anywhere near Worthing …Thursday nights at 7.30  drop the band a line via the www and we look forward to seeing you 

What a way to spend a week off…

So, my first blog post, What a scary thought, how to complete it, will any one actually  see it. I guess the only way to find out is to give it a go and see….

Had this week just past off from Tempcon   and this year as a family  we decided to have what they call in the UK  a “Stay-Cation “. Managed to get a few things done that we wanted around the house, Didn’t need the usual trip to B&Q  as  the cold & bad weather that we have had previously  meant No gardening.

Obviously being off meant yesterday was clear  for a spot of drumming with the band  which is always good .

A day out with the family at Chessington  went down well. In fact tempered with a couple of sessions  for the number one son  at the Driving School  and a spot of retail therapy at Ikea as number two son loves the hot-dogs  it hasn’t been a bad week off.

And then to top it all off, I followed  the example and started to do  some of the on-line Competitions  that a friend and a cousin had been doing for a while  & knowing that they had  won  things i was optimistic

I got my first win. Dont worry it not a life changer

Any how, that’s probably a bad attempt at a first blog, but  we all have to start somewhere
