Bubbleicious

So it's back to work time and the first Monday of the new year.  Commuting returns to its usual nightmare state. Over subscribed trains rammed with sullen faced young men and overly perfumed women all glued to their phones. Blimey you can tell there has been much giving of scent for Christmas. Our carriage this morning smelt like a migraine inducing tart's boudoir. I adore perfume but was actually glad to breathe in some Birmingham smog when I got off the train.

The new job is going. Um. Ok I guess.  I still don't know whether I've done the right thing but I haven't broken anything yet and haven't been yelled at. I'm nearing the end of my probation period so I shall know shortly whether I have to look elsewhere.

Man is off for a few days as he has to have a nasty dental appointment tomorrow to remove a shattered tooth. He's currently raising the rafters by snoring his head off. I'm not used to company on a school night as he's usually at work. He best quieten down as he may not need the dentist to remove his tooth tomorrow!!  It's a good job I love him!

I have discovered bubble tea. Have you guys heard of it?  Goodness it's soooo good.  I had a lychee one today. I may have found a new obsession. You can get milky type ones but I go for the fruit ones. It's made with a base syrup, topped up with ice and Jasmine tea then poured over these little ball things which you suck up the straw and pop in your gob releasing tiny bursts of flavour.  The balls are actually made of tapioca but so far removed from anything resembling school puddings!  It's So different. It originated in Taiwan and got very popular in americky before landing here.  As if I need any new obsessions!

See you soon x

  1. I have never heard of bubble tea, but I will look for it and maybe give it a try. It sounds rather unusual.

    1. Go for it! If you like cordial then I'm sure you'll enjoy this. It just has the twist of the "bubbles" which are a real novelty.

  2. I'm afraid that your 'Bubble Tea' sounds ghastly to me; I'll stick to my plain old red wine.

  3. Happy New Year.
    I've never heard of bubble tea - where do you get it from? I don't envy your commute to work but I hope all goes well at the end of your probation period.
