I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.

Float & Borough

Today was a treat for Wayne and Kelly as we made our way to Float Works (it was Kelly's first time).
After having a relaxing float it was time for a bite to eat and thought that going to Borough Market would be good because of its wide range of foods, drinks and treats to eat but also the fact is was within walking distance and only a few steps away from Floatworks.

Kelly and Wayne had never been before and I knew they would love it, with the endless choices of different world foods, drinks, ices and sweet treats from all over the globe, all of course homemade and served to order. Despite Borough Market being a busy place and the hive of all good food there is still plenty of places to sit down and enjoy your food and the bustling atmosphere. We all had something different to eat and also enjoyed some fresh juices and ice teas as today was exceptionally hot, could not have picked a better day to go to Borough Market. We was going to find a bar to have a drink in but that seemed to be everyones idea on such a hot day so instead head homeward and rounded the evening off nicely with a Chinese take away.

Apple And A Coffee

I knew that this would be a wise investment for me. AppleCare Protection Plan extends my Mac's 90 days phone support and one year warranty to up to three years. No sweat, no worry!
I have waited this long to get the additional cover, as in the 90 days I only used the phone support three times. I think it is for more peace of mind that if anything did go wrong then not only would the cost of the labour be covered but also parts too.

For £139 it is a real deal, I just wish other companies were like Apple in this way because in the past the only reason why I have not ever bought an extended warranty is only due to the fact the warranty has been either more expensive than the actual product or nearly as expensive.
So today I made my way over to Kingston and purchased my apple care protection.
Whilst at Kingston I also wanted to add some flavour to my coffee, I wanted to make my so much loved mocha at home, but found out that after a lot of looking about for chocolate syrup, it is something that is near impossible to buy and yet every coffee house uses it. This might be due to that fact that the coffee syrups used are by a company called 'Monin' and tend to only supply to big drinks companies, bars and clubs. So finding a stockist is something that can only be done online, a route I will have to go down another time.

I asked all the big department stores and also popped into Waitrose hoping they might stock it. Everyone stocked some kind of coffee syrup but no one stocked the chocolate syrup, that is when I stumbled on Costa coffee who had two syrup Monin selection packs and then lo and behold Whittards did their own range too.
Okay it is not quite chocolate syrup, but I have a whole range of other flavours to start me off and to give my taste buds an idea of what's to come.
In my search through many a shop, someone did suggest that I use a good quality chocolate powder or even better chocolate flakes would do just the same job as a syrup and would be something that would be easier to get hold of.
Luckily Wayne had spotted the connoisseur of chocolate flakes 'Charbonnel & Walker' and with this I have been making near to perfect Mocha coffees.

Charbonnel & Walker

'Chocolat Charbonnel' recreates the use of real chocolate as a drink. Traditionally in English Chocolate Houses it was a mixture of chocolate and water only, however, for today’s taste a richer drink is now made with milk.
