You coffee drinkers have been waiting very patiently, what with all the tea we've been sharing this week. Today we're all about the real stuff. It's feeling a bit 1981 here this morning, isn't it? These were my mum's best coffee cups. I remember them coming out at the end of many a dinner party (when no doubt I was supposed to be sleeping) after the salmon mousse and chicken cordon bleu had been cleared away. If I'd been true to that theme, we'd be indulging in a chocolate log with our coffee - chocolate supermarket biscuits soaked in orange juice then sandwiched together with jam and whipped cream, the entire concoction smothered with a final coating of cream and doused with chocolate shavings.

Instead, we'll enjoy a small square of rich mocha brownie, circa 2012, on the side of our coffee. I hope you've brought your stitching. It looks like it's going to be cold outside today, so let's stay inside near the fire where we can knit and natter the day away.


There's still plenty of time to donate to the Cancer Council and win some lovely prizes.


  1. Mmmm, absolutely delicious. How many more amazing tea and coffee sets do you have? Happy to donate to such a worthy cause. I always have a little chat my Dad at this time of the year. He also succumbed to the dreaded "C".
    Well done with reaching your goal so quickly.

  2. Ahhhh, now your talking my language! I'll just pop my bag down and se you next to the fire!

  3. ohmygoodness...i love those coffee cups! I'm craving sweets every time I open blogger because I see all these yummy cakes you're making. Such a great cause! xx

  4. I remember those coffee cups - I didn't know you had them. Too funny. I think you should make a post about the famous chocolate log. I am just around the corner and will be there soon - white with one for me!

  5. You make it sound so cosy Greer. I don't really knit, I haven't brought any stitching, so I'll just tuck into the brownie quietly on my own. You knit away and I'll watch.

  6. it sounds like a perfect morning. i too remember those coffee mugs. nice photo. xo

  7. Great cups! I am enjoying your (excellent) posts this week for the crockery as much as the recipes!


I love comments. Thanks for yours!
