Three mornings in a row I have misjudged the milk amount needed in my aeroccino leaving no room in my coffee mug for the foam..
had to drink a sloppy milky type coffee thingy
It takes forever to milk that stuff out of my (very) fancy italian machine. I'm back to the kettle, Nescafe and happy again each morning.

I mean - who could resist this? Life is all about choices...

If I hear Ed Sheeran's Galway girl noisy bag of a song one more time, I swear I will throttle someone.. preferably him.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I just had a coffee and croissant at the Cafe Lang. I like this cafe a lot but the croissant was rather heavy and doughy... I just hate wasting my croissant allowance on a croissant that doesn't fit my wishes which are that it be light and airy. I've wasted calories and it has upset the balance of my whole day.

I have to take extra care when I mow the lawn as the OH wants to keep the pretty weeds sorry flowers. Its hard work trying to push a petrol mower around individual flowers, now the lawn is covered in clumps of tall grass and dandilions.

Funny, I was thinking the same the other day. Passed by a house on my way up to the commune admin office and they have nice little clumps of flowers in their lawn. Great for the moment, but what do they do when they want to cut the grass?

You and I have different opera-going worries. I rough it with shorts and sandals and fret over which cushion is best for a comfortable and cool bum, and what food and drink I need to bring. Verona in a nutshell

I do the same in Verona!!! I love it, it's my favorite opera house to go to. Acoustics are excellent, and the atmosphere is just magic! I miss going regularly.

I would love to take my husband sometimes, he has seen the arena but it was not during opera season, I am sure he'd love it. Also, my mom and I *may* have sneaked in some booze in the past. Carmen with booze in Verona is a magnificent experience.

This one will be different, the performance is at the Met Opera in New York City and we have fancy seats, so we are dressing it up.

I can usually do opera through half a nostril at this time of year but oddly enough I can actually breathe for a change. I am not sure if it's the EF bored trailing spouses, menopausal or knit/crochet team that has had an effect but something appears to be working.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Went to Macdonalds as it was right there in front of me, it was late and I hadn't been in months. I'd never really paid attention to the calorie information, I knew it was bad, but I'd never realised how bad it was. For a medium fries, a bacon burger and a mango frappuccino I consumed almost 1600 calories. That's more than I'm supposed to eat all day.

Can that be right?!

For 11.20 francs and I ate it in about 10 minutes... That's over 140 calories per franc and 160 calories per minute.

Now you know why so many Americans (and others of course) are obese. McD's should be an occasional treat not the "go to" place for lunch very day.

Even their ice tea is overloaded with calories: 70 cals for 250 mil, 110 for 400 mil and 135 for 500 mil. The light version I buy in Aldi is only 28 cals for 250 mil.
