Coffee Breaks

The best thing about being self employed is you can take your coffee break whenever YOU want :O) 

I tend to work for a few hours in the morning and break at around 11ish (just 10 minutes to go!!) and love nothing more than a flick through a magazine, away from the sewing machine or laptop or whatever I've been doing. 

I have also taken to a bit of bird watching lately. 

I've always left bread out for the birds but up until now it's ended up being magpies and big crows but this week I've had regular visits from these three. 

I love this photo. 

It looks like the thrush (I think it's a thrush??) is telling off the other guy.  He even looks like he's sulking. 

I got a little carried away with photos using my new camera which I am just LOVING.  My mum got it for me for Christmas but with the pop up shop and everything I just haven't had much time to play with it ... until now. 

So how do you spend your coffee breaks?

What do you have with your coffee?  Would love some ideas.  

I'm a boring coffee and toast gal.  I'm not big on biscuits and never fancy chocolate until evening time (yes weird I know) and have been thinking of making batches of muffins or tray bake to freeze and maybe have a little selection.  Hmmmm thinking about it is so much easier than doing :O) 


  1. My breaks are always TEA breaks! I like to have a (dunkable, chocolatey) biscuit with my tea! :-)
    We were at a Center Parcs, in Holland, during half-term. There was a table right outside the chalet window - perfect for bird-feeding and experimenting with my new camera lens! I got lots of snaps similar to yours here. In fact, that's reminded me I need to post about our trip.....
    Great photos!

  2. Country Living makes for a good break for me too, although I'm more a tea girl. My mam bought me a subscription for Christmas and I've been saving this lovely Easter-looking issue for my days off next week!
    Would love to now if you recommend your Christmas gift - my blog photography has been rubbish, am thinking of making a purchase. Have a nice weekend....

  3. My breaks are also tea but I usually spend them working on something on the computer or just reading blogs like yours :)

  4. Can't beat a toasted teacake :)
